Open D&D Table - Episode 35: Seasons Change (S2 Pilot)

With the mercury climbing, it’s time to take our not-quite-a-campaign back to the park!

The weather isn’t the only thing changing, however. So is the game world, and things are about to get more precarious …

If you want to get in on the ground floor as we kick off a new season of old school D&D, drop me a line. Adventure awaits!

(Seats for Sunday still up for grabs.)

Hi @H !
Friends of mine (2) and I were been keen to face an old-school D&D campaign.
I participated in several adventures based on the 5th Edition and never reached out for a prolonged campaign. Narrative and immersive-wise, I think, there a many advantages to running an ongoing adventure.
I’m also a big fan of Baldurs Gate 1, which is kind of based on an old-school D&D ruleset, I assume?
So, perhaps there are some parallels, we can build off!
The two friends of mine have no experience in pen&paper but are both into RPGs, mostly computer games, and are looking forward to being able to join the first games.
All the best,


Never played Baldur’s Gate, but it ought to be pretty similar, at least ruleswise. The gameplay’s going to be very different, though.

I’ll drop you a line with the details for Sunday. Looking forward to meeting you!

Thanks, everybody. That went surprisingly smoothly for an 11-player table. Fun atmosphere.

It is more like a small change (but still count as a treasure), but when we ransacked the wizard’s house we found 12 gold for 10 person (e.g. 1 gold 2 silvers per person for irx, Chilly, cwebb, PH, alrik, s_journ, hardvark, Violet_Red, Gandohar + 2 buddies)

That was a lot of fun… despite the number of players, well done H! Season 2 off to a strong start. See you around.
