Moondale - do you use the same character name in any other games, by any chance??

And as Jan's family is Skandaharan, he might want to avoid that area for a while!!

Re: "Group 0" OOC Chat and RTJ Specific Adventures
In view of the first of October, that is the Dave Arneson Day, I'm thinking about staging a small competition between the players to write a post/essay on a theme linked to Dave Arneson and Blackmoor and then reward it with Experience Points for their character(s): 100 XPs for the winner, 50 XPs for the runner up and 25 XPs for the third. How does it sound?
I'll think about it tomorrow during the day and then I'll write down my thoughts here, to get your feedback.

A writing contest?  Sure, sounds like fun.

Re: "Group 0" OOC Chat and RTJ Specific Adventures
Initially I was thinking about some simple, broad theme, such as: "What is Dave Arneson's legacy for contemporary role-players?" or "Which aspects of Dave Arneson's way of roleplaying have been maintained today and which need to be rediscovered?" but your question about the themes made me think... What are your thoughts about it? What do you think may be a suitable theme for the Dave Arneson Day?

I see no suggestions for the theme, so I'll go forward as planned :)

Just to add that anybody that gives good answer but we have more than 3 player put in should get 5 xp just for the time and effort.

I think that would be nice.

Re: "Group 0" OOC Chat and RTJ Specific Adventures
Just got here..

Themes?? How about...

To what extent does Dave Arneson use the concept of light and dark within his world of Blackmoor?? And how influential are these concepts on the players, their characters and how they view the game world??

The Tremendous Trio is ready to ride out again.  Does anybody want to come with, or are we on our own?

let's wait a couple of days and see if your proposal gets some interest. In the meanwhile, you can start having a look at potential adventures that you may want to play.

I'll be writing soon enough but have my own assignments due in over the next few weeks, not to mention my planning and prep for work.

This might be tough for me, because I donít really consider myself a contemporary gamer.  Iím an old school kind of guy and I know little about todayís scene, except for playing here and on Roll20.

Well... I understand very well your point, but I guess that, if you play in 2021, you can't deny you're contemporary ;)
