The Icemaiden
  By: Rachel
During AD&D sessions I doodle some of the action and I've started to develop these into a strip charting the party's progress. Updates will be when I get the time to put pen to paper. It should be noted that these are 'cartoons' and I'll be using some artistic license but the spirit of what happens at the table will always be there.
Free Town of Groat's End - Twisting Stair Dungeon

Since the party is going back to town, I needed to put one together. Here's a map for it, and I'll finish detailing out the town over the next few days in blog posts...
The Mystical Trash Heap
  By: Trent Foster
   A blog about D&D and other 80s-era pop culture
My infrequently-updated blog ostensibly covering the entire gamut of 80s-era pop culture but in practice focused mostly on D&D, specifically Gary Gygax-flavored 1st edition AD&D and the World of Greyhawk. Occasional house-rules and new crunch (spells, monsters, items, etc.) are posted alongside reviews and retrospectives, reminiscences, philosophical musings, polemic rants, and other standard blog fare.
Magic-Users in Groat's End
  By: EOTB
   It's a game of chicken when the DM is the crazy one
The Lady Cynewise Human M-U, 12th level I 18, W 13, C 6, CH 16, AC 6, HP 18, AL LE middle-aged, foppish appearance, very stable, helpful, inquisitive, extroverted, friendly, sensitive, brilliant, vengeful, greedy, truthful, craven, spendthrift, amoral, saintly (in the context of lawful evilness), interested in: legends, collector of porcelain/china/crystal Notable equipment: Ring of protection +2, Bracers AC 8, ring of invisibility, wand of paralyzation, staff of command, other magic as determined by the DM Decription: Cynwise is eternal in the eyes of your average Groat's End citizen. Well over 200 years old, she both founded the town and removed herself as its titular ruler outside of living memory. Now she's more like a force of nature: outside the law, inside the walls, and beyond anyone's ability to resist. It's unknown how she manages to live on, by appearance in the prime of life, beyond all reasonable mortal allotment. While from a distance her alluring facade seems perfect, at arms length its unnatural strain subtly but surely contrasts with her demeanor - presented to the uninitiated as warm matronly concern. Those who fear her shadow falling across them if alone know her more fully: superior, demanding, punishing...(click above for more!)
"YAR to "The End of the OSR"
  By: EOTB
   It's a game of chicken when the DM is the crazy one
Melan's post discussing the end of the OSR, and Anthony Huso's response, offered a chance to have -if for a small moment shared by only a few people - that sort of chained conversation that kicked the whole mess off and running. I say "mess" with mixed feelings ranging from fondness to good riddance...(click above for more!)
Extraordinary Delving and Cartography Co. (Part 1 & 2)
  Article By: Rachel The Icemaiden
I've been playing in my brothers 1e (with houserules) adventure along with my sister-in-law and a couple of friends since the Christmas holidays. During sessions I doodle some of the action and I've started to develop these into a strip charting the party's progress. I shall be sharing these in this thread - updates will be when I get the time to put pen to paper. Should be noted that these are "cartoons" and I'll be using some artistic license but the spirit of what happens at the table will always be there... Party: Byon of Athfort Human Fighter - Level 3 Aeife Green-oak Halfing Druid - Level 3 Ellodin Afoncoed High Elf Fighter/MU - Level 2/2 Arilith Dorchabas Drow Fighter/MU - Level 2/2 Gorimm (NPC) Dwarf Cleric - Level 3 Part 1 - Hollow Hills Background: The party have been hired by a Whitehaven noble family to rescue their son whom they believe has been kidnapped by a rival family and taken to the port town of Finwyrm to be sold into slavery and taken overseas. The party have left the town of Whitehaven and to reach Finwyrm they would either have to cross a mountain range or take a very long route around them. At the foot of the mountains they came across a settlement of gnomes who had been troubled by bands of goblins and hobgoblins who had taken up residence in an old deserted hillfort. During the clearing of the hillfort the party found an old map which showed a series of tunnels and passages leading through the mountains themselves. They have been in these passages for some days now their progress being dogged by increasing numbers of Duergar. They have lost the cleric Gorimm during one fierce melee and although not finding his body believe him to be dead. We join them as they reach a junction in the passage. An open pit is evident in the secondary passage and further down it are fallen boulders where some of the walls have collapsed..... Arilith on point Ellodin guarding the rear. Note: During the course of the action Arilith, standing right at the lip of the pit, had to make a dexterity save or loose her footing. A roll on d20 of her dex score or under was required to be successful. She has a dexterity of 17... I rolled an 18.
The Clerics in Groat's End

He often changes the course of events small and large without anyone being the wiser...(click above for more!)

8 Reasons To Check Out OSRIC
  By: Louis "sirlou" Kahn
The OSRIC RPG, short for Old School Reference and Index Compilation, is a fantasy role-playing game system. OSRIC is what is known in the Old School or OSR (Old School Renaissance) movement, as a retro-clone, in that it is a faithful, as much as legally possible, recreation of the First Edition of the world's most famous role-playing game, Advanced Dungeons & Dragons.

Mundane Magica
This 36 page supplement includes the following articles: Revisiting Non-Violent Magic Items Takes another look t the article Non-Violent Magic Items from The Dragon Issue 73. Non-Violent Magic Items Adds another 100 non-violent magic items to the collection. When is a Weapon not a Weapon? Offers some non-typical weapons and armor.
HU2 A Fabled City of Brass
NOTE: You must own City of Brass Appendices to use this module! The Fabled City of Brass, proclaimed in legend to inhabit the deserts of Andalsuia-and elsewhere-was long ago conscripted for use in fantasy role playing games. Its presence in the genre has arguably made it shopworn and tired. But if we return to the original text, most commonly associated with the Thousand and One Nights, we may be surprised to find something much different than a city of stomping Efreet. The setting of this module is one of spectral beauty and foreboding. It is a city with a lesson; filled with empty streets, great riches, automatons, illusions and death. Here is a module to hurl characters of 12th level and higher against. You will either break them or turn them into legends on par with the City of Brass.

Rage from the Waves
What horror from the depths is leaving ships adrift, cargo untouched, stealing the crews for some unspeakable fate? Lost ships. Missing crews. Disappearing cargo. The King is not pleased, and it's your job to find out what happened and bring a stop to it! To do so you'll have to unravel a mystery that's stumped the king's advisers. Clues? one ship that made it back with a stabbing spear of unusual design and some odd blood on the deck. Four to eight characters of 4th to 7th level will figure out the mystery. The adventure includes two completely detailed businesses, a full set of deck plans for a carrack, a second set of partial plans providing design variations, and an island with room for additional adventuring if you so desire. Add to this over 80 fully documented characters for use in this and other adventures, including several ship's crews, and you have an adventure that is also a resource.

EOTB
   It's a game of chicken when the DM is the crazy one
Approach: gamist over simulationist Appeal: player skill over character skill Aesthetic: Heavy Metal: the Movie over fantasy geographic My games and writing center around sandboxing between urban, wilderness and megadungeon play; and also a heavy dose of other-planar. Quirks include an irrational love of treasure maps, and using the DMG unarmed combat tables. Dice openly rolled to the fullest extent possible. Illusions are real to the character if the player responds except to disbelieve. Gandalf was just a 5th level wizard, prove me wrong.
