Would you trust these murderhobos with your campaign?

So with the ACKS Barrowmaze campaign on indefinite hiatus, we’re trying out some fairly BtB AD&D 1e!



Click to embiggen!

The original idea was to have each player make 2 PCs, since we’ve all been so erratic about participation, but in the end six players showed up so we had 12 PCs the first night!  One guy is out-of-town tonight, but another is back from having a procedure.  The crew from the first session is pictured above — I don’t recall most of the names but have (left to right) a 1/2 orc Fighter/Assassin,  Human cleric, elf thief/MU, human fighter, dwarf fighter, elf Fighter/MU/thief, 1/2 elf cleric/MU, 1/2 elf fighter/thief, human druid, halfling fighter, human monk, 1/2 orc fighter.  The pairs (front/back rows) are each controlled by a single player.  The returning player, I hear, will run an elf assassin and a human ranger.

I think most of these minis have featured before on this blog.  The monk and druid are the oldest paint jobs, the rest having been painted in the last five years or so. Grenadier, Reaper, Heritage, Ral Partha, even TSR sculpts are on display, as well as a Citadel/Milton Bradley joint mini for HeroQuest.

They are all 5th level (or 4/4, or 3/3/3) and I believe we are playing in the Slavers series…though that is based mostly on the fact we’ve been sent to deal with bad guys in the Pomarj, the nature of whose crimes we never even asked, because hey, there is a bounty.

<Update: Ack! Fighter/assassin 3/3 and Fighter/thief 3/3.  Damn your eyes, wight!>
