OD&D at GASPCon

I ran a handful of convention games mostly at the Erie Day of Gaming. I had a lot of fun with the setup I did this year with Swords & Wizardry. The only problem is that I been doing it on a last minute spur of the moment basis. So for GASP Con this year I decided to prepare early. I preregistered and now have my events up as you can see here and here.

So any of you live within a few hours of Pittsburgh I hope to see you there and perhaps we can enjoy a few hours of gaming.

GaspCon runs from November 13th to 15th. Information can be gotten here.

The events I will be running are

RPG - Original D&D - Ruins of Witch Hill
By Robert S Conley. Witch Hill was once Ramat; once one of the greatest abbeys of Mitra the goddess of justice. During the religious wars that brought down the Dragon Empire something unspeakable happened and Ramat was destroyed. Now four centuries later the nearby villagers are reporting strange sights around Witch Hill.

This is a low level roleplaying adventure using a playtest of the Majestic Wilderlands rules; a variant of the original 1974 rules of Dungeons & Dragon. No experience is needed and all materials are provided.

RPG - Original D&D - The Beast of Kensla
By Robert S Conley. The Village of Kensla is being terrorized by wolves and is refusing to bring in the harvest. The nobles are sending in a force to clear the region of wolves once and for all.

Good luck with that Rob. The wolf adventure is a very good one and I think they will really enjoy it. Just relax on using props. Sometimes when start using them it takes up time that takes people out of the game mood you have set up which is important for that adventure.

I don't think I will be using the master maze this time. Just dry erase and the battlemat.

Sounds pretty cool! Is the 'Ruins of Witch Hill' an adapted version of the 'Ruins of Ramat' though?

Yes but I renamed it because I thought Witch Hill would attract more players than Ramat would. It is the same module in general but I adapted the background to my Majestic Wilderlands.

Basically a ruined monastery of Mitra several leagues outside of City-State destroyed during the civil/religious wars that brought down the Dragon Empire.
