David Callahan is rocking it old school with two first edition games; one the granddaddy of modern RPGs with a classic AD&D adventure and the other a first edition Descent scenario.
Descent: Journeys in the Dark (1st Ed)
Friday 6p-10p ages Teen+
Descent: Journeys in the Dark is a semi-cooperative game in which two to five players will take on the antagonistic roles of heroes and Overlord. Up to four players will choose characters with a wide assortment of skills and innate abilities to be the heroes who will explore dungeons in search of treasure and adventure. One player will take on the role of the Overlord and will control the dungeon’s many traps, puzzles, and monsters.
The heroes’ goal will be to cooperatively conquer the dungeon, seize its many treasures, and achieve other objectives as set by the scenario. If the heroes cooperate and achieve their goals, they will all win. The Overlord’s objective is simply to use all the means at his or her disposal – from deadly traps and ferocious monsters – to kill the heroes. Each hero has a certain Conquest Point value to the party and if too many Conquest Points are lost through hero death, the party loses and the Overlord wins.
Halls of the Beast-Tamers AD&D 1st Edition
Saturday 1p-5p ages Teen+
Halls of the Beast-Tamers is one of two introductory adventures, inviting players to experience the fabled ruins of Myth Drannor, in the Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting, published in 1987. The adventure is credited in 1988 by Dragon Magazine, as being excellent with a sound reasoning for the classic “Monster Hotel” scenarios, popular in this edition!
3rd level Pregen’s will be provided, or bring your own 1-3 level character for approval.
