Back to gaming (finally)… and, hopefully, a new D&D project.

While Covid has put a damper (to say the least) on my gaming over the past year, the last few months have seen a return to gaming through use of both Zoom and Roll20.

One group, currently playing GURPS via Zoom, picked up in November, after leaving off in-person gaming last spring. The other, which plays a Barbarians of Lemuria game via Roll20, started up a few weeks ago after the pandemic put an end to us gathering in my basement last March.

So, now that I’m back to gaming again, I’m hoping to start working on a Basic D&D version of AD&D 3rd Edition. As someone who hasn’t played a ton of Basic D&D, and who prefers Moldvay Basic over every other iteration, I hope to do the system justice while keeping the rules both brief and intuitive. I’ll be adding materials as I work on the system, which will be based (of course) on AD&D 3rd Edition.

  1. Hey! Good to hear from you. I’ve been reading up on Basic and have some stuff both electronic and real-life physical copies. Simpler rules are great and I know you will do a great job revamping them. Btw, did I leave my rectangular dice tray there? I have to return your DVD too. I can wear a mask, gloves, and fresh pair of boxers’. Hope to see you soon.

  2. I will be very interested to see your interpretation of the 3rd edition of Basic. Are you planning on doing version that incorporates from all the BECMI line or limit it to just like the original B/X?

  3. I have been a great admirer of your work, and I truly look forward to seeing your take on a “Basic”/Classic rendition of AD&D 3e. I have been working on a hybrid game called “Heroes & Horrors” that is built on a Classic chassis, but brings in the best elements (IMO) of the different editions as well as simulacra like C&C and Swords & Wizardry.

    Godspeed, sir!
