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.

"YAR to "The End of the OSR"

   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!)

We are about writing, illustrating and publishing table top role-playing games. MontiDots is a collaborative venture between three friends incorporating passions, skills, ideas, creativity and fun.

The Sisters of Pestilence
In a lonely section of the Land, far from the crowded confines of civilization, stands a dark forest - a mass of thorny trees, brambles, and fens densely clustered amongst the ancient hills. Brave explorers venture within, seeking a tower said to contain the tomb of a forgotten king. Few return, but those who do tell tales of rotting corpses hanging from the trees and dark shapes flitting in the shadows, silence-shrouded days and fever-haunted nights, and an ever-present foreboding of something that lies therein, watching...waiting. Dare you seek your fortune there, in the grasp of The Sisters of Pestilence?

A Book of Miscellaneous Spells II
The & Publishing Group is pleased to announce the publication of Andrew Hamilton's second collection of Old School Gaming spells - A Book of Miscellaneous Spells II! This book of spells is designed for Advanced Dungeons & Dragons (AD&D) and OSRIC but is compatible with most Old School Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) games and their retro-clones. This volume contains more than 110 brand new spells for the four AD&D spell casting classes. This includes more than 30 spells for clerics, druids, and illusionists - plus 78 new magic-user spells of all levels. [Yeah, Andrew has a thing for magic-user spells!] That's enough, right? Right? Wrong. This collection includes spells for the Witch NPC class (from Dragon Magazine issue #114), one of Andrew's favorite NPC baddies. Plus it contains spells for clerics of the Cult of Juiblex. Never heard of this cult? It will be a nasty surprise for your players! If that isn't enough, look for the spells for Frost Giant and Gnoll shaman! Bad guys need more power to combat those dratted forces of Good! This gives it to them ... All told, this volume contains more than 150 new spells for use with all the D&D games of the 70's and 80's and their retro-clones.
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.

I play AD&D. My goal is to help you play AD&D, Rules-As-Written, not only so that a wonderfully byzantine time in gaming isn't lost, but so that you can have as many stories and as much fun I and my crew have had over the years.

   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.

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.
