The campaign web site

I’ve mentioned before that I’m playing in a Castles & Crusades game.  C&C, if you are not familiar with it, is based very much on how the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons game was back in the late 1970s/early 1980s, with a few more “modern” mechanics thrown in, but the publishers, Troll Lord Games, actually worked with and more or less had the approval of the late Gary Gygax.  Dungeons and Dragons has gone through several overhauls since I began playing (generally not for the better IMO) and it is nice that retro/old school version is still out there.

Anyway when I’ve mentioned in some comments at other blogs that our campaign has encouraged players to write up backgrounds and summaries of the previous session, it was met with some disdain (apparently character backgrounds aren’t old-school enough or something).  Well, suck it.

One of the players in our group has created a web site to store our campaign materials, including the session summaries and character backgrounds, as well as for his other hobbies.

On the one hand I’m not really sure anyone else will really be interested in the specifics of our adventures, but on the other hand I love that Chad is enjoying the game as much as I am and wants to share some of it.

As we have time more will go up — I’ve volunteered to take some picutres of the miniatures we’re using (it’s been quite a while since posted any minis, hasn’t it?) and he’s going to keep collecting the session summaries and what not up.  So, I’ll add a link to his site now.

For my part I’ve never taken a lot of  interest in the materials other people post for their private campaigns, but a lot of old-schoolers are doing a nice job of blogging how they’ve created and run their games (Dwimmermount at Grognardia, Playing D&D with Porn stars, Save or Die!, and so on) and I’ve actually been more interested in that.  I’ll have to try to get the DM to write a little about how he came up with the Lich’s Skull Island campaign some time.

  1. Thank you for the website plug Mike!

    I have to admit I didn’t have much time to add our latest summaries to the site but since we are expecting plenty snow today and tonight I will try to get caught up on everything tonight as well as making sure all of our old summaries are up for everyone’s viewing pleasure.

    Once that is done I can get back to writing up more of Trogar’s Journals weekly as well!
