Chainsaw: I really enjoyed my first AS&SH game, especially being turned into crab people. Great way to start out my Saturday morning!
Thanks, man! I'm always stoked whenever someone I don't know takes a chance on one of my games, so I'm super glad you had fun. Plus, you're the first person out of at least 12 runnings of that adventure to experience the crab mutation (or curse?), so you accomplished something new!
I'm a big fan of AD&D (as that's what Welleran DMs now) and was thinking about starting to DM a 5e campaign, but after playing AS&SH, I'll be picking up the 2nd edition (pre-ordered!) and trying to get my hands on a copy of 1e. I really enjoy the mechanics of AS&SH and would rather start my DMing career based on it over D&D 5e.
I love, love, love 1E and am very jealous that you have Welleran nearby to run games. He's so good. That's like hitting the RPG lottery! Also, awesome that you enjoyed Jeff's game enough to want to run it! Please let us all know how it goes. If you have any questions, ask away. We have a very good and friendly crowd here.
