Tonight Rappan Athuk, Tomorrow Morning Grimmsgate!

Clicking Above Will Take You to the Swords & Wizardry SRD Site :)

Tonight the Saturday Evening AD&D 1e / OSRIC campaign returns after taking a week off for the Easter weekend. More buttkicking in Rappan Athuk, as the party has finally arrived to RA proper. Should be loads of fun.

Tomorrow morning my "Lapsed Gamers Campaign" will move from it's one session of Swords & Wizardry "Mostly Complete" version of the rules to the Crypts & Things / Swords & Sorcery flavor of the Swords & Wizardry rules.

I did this not just because S&S style gaming is loads of fun but because with a small group at the moment - 2, maybe 3 players if we are lucky - I needed a varient of the S&W rules that gives smallish parties a bit more survivability.

This of course, inspired me to work on my S&S flavored S&W setting - which got a bit derailed when the Swords & Wizardry Appreciation Day took off like a 12 dice lighting bolt.

Which leads me to Grimmsgate. It's got a small village, a wilderness map and a dungeon. Enough to occupy my players for a good 2 to 3 sessions. Which should get me past the S&W Appreciation Day and a bit more focused on the sandbox setting.

I read through it quickly when it arrived with my S&W Complete Kickstarter package, but tonight I'll read it cover to cover to ensure I'm ready for my players every move ;)
