Roll for Initiative Podcast / Re: Volume 6 Issue 184 - Haunted Houses
« on: November 01, 2016, 03:38:16 PM »
Great episode. A good haunted house adventure is Ghost of Mistmoor from Dungeon Magazine. It has elements of scooby doo and ghost of course. Looking forward to Cthulhu episode.

Old School Blues The Revival! / Re: Want something reviewed?
« on: October 25, 2016, 01:50:32 PM »
Sweet! Another podcast for me to tune in and its about the OSR, my favorite segment of the rpg hobby. There are so many great products out there.....would love to hear about Petty Gods, Basic Psionic Handbook, Maze of the Blue Medusa, and Dwellers in Darkness. The last one is a massive OSRIC monster book. Would be good for RFI too.

Hope you guys have a new podcast coming out soon.
It has been a while!  Need my fix. :-)

recording today. :)

Awesome! Can't wait. Love the podcast. Now that I'm actually running a 1e campaign I've been devouring all the episodes.

Listen to the Podcast today, another fine episode. I'm so glad their are publishers out there still supporting TSR D&D. I didn't know too much about pacesetter till today and checked out their website. Grab a copy of Blood Cults, an AD&D boxset. Looking forward to reading through. Also Thac0 was used in later module during 1e days. I'm currently running an OSRIC/AD&D 1e campaign and use Thac0 myself. I just ignore the repeating 20s on the combat matrix. Makes things go rather smoothly.

Does the Psionicist use the 1e psionic system or something unique to that class?

First Edition AD&D / I6 Ravenloft vs House of Strahd
« on: October 17, 2016, 09:01:46 AM »
Currently running a 1e game and toying with the idea of doing I6 once the group hovers around 6th level. I've heard I6 is brutal. From what I understand 2e updated I6 with House of Strahd. Is that version easier then the 1e version? Are their significant changes?

First Edition AD&D / Re: Good Rules Set for AD&D 1 or 2?
« on: October 17, 2016, 08:50:43 AM »
I like OSRIC and then add in the rest of AD&D 1e. I'm currently running a game on Roll20. We use OSRIC as the core then add in 1e stuff like Unearthed Arcana, Oriental Adventures, etc. We even use some 2e stuff since they run off the same chassis. OSRIC is fantastic if you want an easy to read version of 1e.

First Edition AD&D / NPC Classes
« on: October 17, 2016, 08:22:32 AM »
Did anyone allow or play the NPC classes from Dragon Magazine? I think the Bard from Dragon Magazine 56 is quite awesome and probably the best version of the bard.

Thacos Hammer Podcast / Re: Splatbook 125 - Classic Module Experiences!

Got a chance to listen to the episode. I think if you are not a hardcore about exact rules you could just use the 1e stats and not convert at all. In the scheme of things they run off the same chassis and I don't think player would know the difference. I'm currently running AD&D 1e game with elements from 2e. It all mixes well.

Save for Half Podcast / Re: Save for Half Episode #2: "Gamma World"
« on: October 17, 2016, 08:18:09 AM »
Finally got a chance to listen to the show. Love Gamma World and I think Mutant Future is a nice alternative for B/X style games. Especially when it is getting harder and harder to get original copies. Still trying to score Gamma World 4e for a nice price. Wish Wotc put up the pdf at some point. I used some Mutant Future stuff in my Labyrinth Lord campaign, smooth conversions. There even a conversion guide in the back of MF for LL.

Love the episode. Jon is fantastic scholar of rpg lore and I enjoy every show he has appeared on.
