Looking to start a casual and fun AD&D campaign using the first edition rules. Players who are new to 1st edition, or new to D&D entirely, are absolutely welcome. We will be using a combination of original and published materials; we'll talk first to make sure you're not familiar with anything be used!

Looking for a group of 4-6 players. Everything will be done via e-mail. I'll send out an email each Tuesday and responses will be due by midnight Thursday; another email will go out by Saturday morning, with responses due by midnight on Sunday (EST; if we get international players, we can adjust to make it work).

Will try to fit the pacing so there is a natural stopping point after a few months, at which point we can decide to continue or not.
