    Putting Together a Network of Older Edition D&D Gamers i

    Due to a lack of gaming stores and other common gathering areas, its harder to find people to game with. Especially if you play older editions of D&D (pre-2e) or their clones. Whether your looking for a new player for your regular group, or just looking to get a pickup game, it would be helpful to have a list of potential old school gamers in your area.

    I know there are various locations on the net to find people, but not every potential player visits or even knows about all the sites.

    I've designated myself the keeper of the Connecticut list of older edition D&D gamers.

    If you're in the Connecticut area, even southern MA or Westchester County NY, and play or want to play older (pre-2e) editions of D&D, send me your information.

    I am looking at least for your first name, town, and email address. Send your information to me at Ill spend the week compiling an email list, and then send out the list to everyone on it.

    Give me a blurb about what older editions you play or want to play, whether you want to play, DM, or both, and the days/hours you're available.

    I'm going onto every site/list I know of to post the same thing, in order to get maximum exposure. If you have any ideas on where I should post this, please let me know.

    Name: Wes Herbst
    Location: Lenexa, KS
    Games Played: OD&D, Castles & Crusades, Victoriana, Swords & Wizardry, Deeds Not Words, FASA & Star Trek.
    Preferred Party Role: Dungeon Master
    Quirks: Intolerant with people of literal low intelligence. I cannot help myself. I am not saying stupid in a subjective way. Specifically I recall an instance where a player with autism just bugged the crap out of me till I killed his character. I know its horrible, but once I get to gaming I cannot help how elitist and intolerant I can get. No excuses, that is just how I am.

    I haven't played in years but I still have all my old books and dice in a box in my closet. I'd be happy to meet any gaming groups in the San Diego area which play 1st or 2nd editions.

    I can see Detroit from my office window. Not necessarily a good thing. ;)
    (well, its a good thing that there is almost half a mile of water - the Detroit River - protecting Canada from Detroit) LOL

    Solidly 2E, and even if I had the interest, just don't have the time to play anything else. Well, not even the time these days to play my game of choice. :(

    Sorry Joe. You're getting alot of responses, but none of them from your area. But it does show how widespread us 'hawkers are, even in a small sample.

    I'm Gary and I live near Wilmington, NC.

    There's probably an "old timer" or two around here like myself but I haven't met any in the 12 years I've lived here. There is a gaming store in Wilmington but it's mostly board games and Magic.

    Cut my gaming teeth on Basic D&D beginning in '83 and quickly moved to Expert and then to AD&D. Really like 1st and 2nd edition but also like the new shiny stuff - 3.5 and Pathfinder and more recently Castles & Crusades. Would like to have a monthly gaming night and just get together for snacks and beer and D&D.
