Checking Interest in a Swords & Wizardry Online Convention / Gathering

I tried running this poll or survey about a month or so ago, and Blogger's plug in for it was so frigging buggy I had to stop it, so here we go again ;)

The poll is on the right side of the page. I think it maxes out at 200 votes, but if we reach that we should have a pretty good idea if there is enough interest in this or not.

We'd probably be looking at a weekend in September, sometime after Labor Day here in the States. If it does have legs, I expect this to be mostly community driven, much like the Swords & Wizardry Appreciation Day was.

I would assume that most of the gaming would revolve around G+ Hangouts / Roll20, but it does't need to. There are other viable Virtual Table Tops out there: Maptools, Fantasy Grounds, EpicTableTop, ScreenMonkey and other. Add in Skype (or not) and you are good to go.

Heck, we could even get a panel or two going, interviews, maybe even a workshop - like Quick Adventure Design Hints or 10 minute Dungeon Maps.

So, what are you waiting for? Vote!


  1. These pole things are fun.

    Happy Gaming :-)

    1. Darling, why are you talking about my pole on this blog. Unless you meant Erik's poll then that's okay.

    2. er...

      i got nothing safe to say ;)

    3. I was calling Tim a poll, kidding, but it's what I actually said out loud to him when he told me he commented to my comment.

      Hope you're having a good weekend, Tenkar.

    4. it went by way too quickly... sigh

  2. I think this is a great idea.
    I'd like to try my hand at DMing a short adventure.

  3. The Polish American Society takes offense to your comments.
