First Edition AD&D / Re: Favorite PHB Class to Play

I've always been a fan of thieves. I've sadly have rarely ever played a magic-user. I need to fix that. Playing a Gnome Thief/Illusionist has been a blast in the past though!

I've gotta add basicexpert.info is awesome. I use it for turn tracking in my BFRPG game, and have used it for plenty of other stuff in the past too :)

We used to have a PbP forum, but not many people ran PbP games. I played in 2 (though I'm awful at keeping up with PbP) and ran one as well. If you drum up interest I'll definitely put it back up :)

Awesome Tony! I will be watching! Thanks for sharing. Are all of your online session on youtube?

Thank you you guys! Definitely glad to already see some action. If you see any other old members on G+ or Facebook or in your games, please share. I got a e-mail from DMMike about how he couldn't log in earlier. Had to explain what happened.

Sadly so Thork. I wish I could say that we didn't lose absolutely everything, but we did. I'm trying to build it all back how it was, but it'll take time. I need to reenable karma! BTW, your module arrived. Haven't read through it all yet, but sure is pretty :)

Feel free to reintroduce yourself here guys.

I got into gaming when I was in high school. It was Friday after school, spring break had just started, and my friends and I went to the local game store to pick up Axis & Allies. When we arrived, the friend who planned on buying it decided it was too expensive, but I saw the Basic Game box for 3.5 D&D. We were all intrigued so I picked it up and we headed back. I looked at how much was in there and decided I should read it over before we played. I spent that night reading it over, and getting used to the rules and we all met the next night to play and had a blast. We ended up going back to that game store every day during spring break to buy stuff for the game. I picked up the players box which came with a soft back PHB, minis, and dice, and they picked up PC minis, and I kept coming back for DMG, MM, and a DM Screen. The owners were really nice and helped us figure some of the rules out and were super helpful. Sadly when I returned after my first year of college it was already gone :/

We played 3.5 for a long time. I DMed from the start, and to this day, those players still don't even own a PHB. In university, my local store in Waco had some really beat up 1e hardbacks. I picked up the PHB, Legends & Lore, and Oriental Adventures and dove into them. I loved that it seemed like I didn't need minis or a battle mat, and the characters seemed so much less complex (and considering my players didn't even own a PHB, that was a good thing!). I happened to stumble upon RFI at the time, and I fell straight into the OSR. Dramaman helped me out by being my first 1e DM (only time before that I had been a player was in a pathfinder game I played in on maptools), and I've been in love with the OSR since. OD&D and B/X are now my goto systems, but I'm still getting the urge to run 1e & 2e at times.

Back then RFI had their own forums before OSRGaming was created, but I do want to thank everyone who has been through OSRGaming, and helped build it up. You made me the gamer I am. I've had a blast and I want to keep this community up for y'all!

Outside of gaming, I am a worship leader at my church, and teach saxophone and guitar lessons. I graduated from Baylor University in 2012 with a Bachelor of Music: Saxophone Performance and have been loving my job.

Please let me know if there is a board or sub-board that I forgot. I know I left out some stuff intentionally, and I think I was going to go with Finnarvyn's OD&D Discussion board philosophy that we'll add more boards and sub-boards as they are deemed necessary due to conversation. Otherwise, I think we can enjoy the lack of clutter for the time.

I'm sure I forgot something important, so let me know if so though!

Hello everyone,

I want to let you all know what happened to the forum. Sadly our database has been lost and the back-ups I created using our forum system were corrupted. I apologize as I know this will be a massive inconvenience to everyone. Sadly as far as I can see, we have lost everything. I know exactly what I was doing wrong in my back-ups and will now be much more adamant to insure that doesn't happen again. I hope we can all come back and build OSRGaming back to where it was again.

My deepest apologies,
