I've been contacted by an online friend (from RPG.net) who's looking for playtesters and such for an rpg. He's working on his own fantasy heartbreaker combining his favorites parts of OD&D and Tunnels & Trolls. Needless to say, I agreed to look at the manuscript. I'd love an opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a good retro dungeoneering game. That's why I've been following Castles & Crusades. I really hope one of these two systems works for me, so I can tackle my longtime ambition: getting a dungeon crawl of my own published. Nothing overly fancy, just three levels of beer & pretzely fun whacking on monsters and scoring fabulous loot. Modern D&D does not support beer & pretzel play. I want a game that allows for superquick PC generation and easy play such that within 2 or 3 hours a group can make characters and run through a level of a dungeon.
