Running A Game At Dreamation

Coming Sunday, February 22, at Dreamation 2009 in Morristown, NJ, I will be running an AD&D (1st Edition) game. Specifically, I’ll be unveiling the next level of my Castle of the Mad Archmage. I’ll be interested to see what sort of response a 1E game will get at a convention nowadays. I listed TARGA as the “group”, which I’m guessing will get it linked from the Dreamation site in some way. Here’s the official description for the game:

Explore the crumbling ruins beneath the fabled Castle of the Mad Archmage. Experience an old-fashioned dungeon crawl where traps are deadly, monsters are wandering, and fun trumps everything. Pre-generated characters will be provided, but players are encouraged to bring their own Players Handbook.

My regular game is re-starting this Friday, I just unpacked all my OGRE/GEV minatures (boy, there were more unpainted ones than I remembered) and I’m back on the convention circuit. Life is good, game-wise.

  1. If finances were so tight at the moment and I had a bit of “mad money” to throw around, I would most certainly take the trip over to New Jersey for this. I’ve been meaning to get active again in the convention scene and Morristown isn’t that far a throw from Long Island. A chance to delve into your homebrew Castle Greyhawk would be well worth the trip!

    But alas…

    Good luck and have a great time!

  2. I second what Mike said. Based on the description, I’d certainly sign on to play. Ironically enough, I’m going through the exact same process for a Con in April. I wasn’t sure whether to do an old school game or something new(er), so I actually put up a poll yesterday to see what people thought. So far, it’s kind of a tie.

  3. If you’re going to be at Dexcon, SMM, let me know and we can grab a beer or something.

    I’ve heard a lot about Agon and it does look very interesting. I actually had it in my hands at Dreamation, but didn’t lay down the money. Perhaps next time…
