Yeah, I know what you mean about online play.

I'll be too busy until the second week of March with work projects, but am pretty open after that.  I prefer weekends, but can play weeknights as long as we don't go too late (I'm EST time zone).

Depending on the day and time I might be able to pull in 1 or 2 friends I've played with online on and off for years.  They haven't played AS&SH, but they are old school D&D gamers.  One of them is EST and the other is CST time zones.

Anyone else enjoy this genre?  I'm just getting into it and really like Atrium Carceri.

If I wasn't so far away (Maine) I'd jump on this in a heartbeat.  I've always wanted to play in a Zothique campaign.  If you ever decide to run it as an online game I'd be down for that.

I started making a list of bands and figured it would be easier to just link this awesome channel:

Lots of underground metal with some doom, stoner, and psychedelic thrown in for good measure - sometimes all on the same album!

I was listening to these two bands while reading my new AS&SH hardback.   I could've sworn it was 1982 and I was in my old bedroom reading my newly purchased Dungeon Masters Guide.

There is a great series of posts on the Dream in the Lich House blog (I can't post a link as I'm too new to the forum) outlining a megadungeon the author was working on (sadly, the last post is from 2014).  It's about an alien city encased in a glacier that was discovered by Vikings.  Basically, the Vikings make a summer camp/trade town outside the city and various groups raid/explore it during the summer months instead of neighboring kingdoms.

The author was originally planning to publish it, but it hasn't happened yet - I'm going to try contacting him to see if he's still working on it.  The outline is more than enough to start with, though.  I hope to start my adaptation of it soon and may run it as an online game if I can't drum up enough local interest.

Heya!

I'm Terry.  I've been playing RPGs since I was introduced to the D&D red box basic set back in 1981.  Over the years I've played lots of RPG systems/genres and like to bring bits and pieces from those systems into whichever I'm currently running. 

I first played AS&SH with both Jeff and Tim Callan at TotalCon four years ago  and really enjoyed it.  I picked up the PDF to read shortly thereafter, but was heavily involved in an ongoing game in another system and was unable to get it to the table.  I was able to get into an AS&SH game run by Bob (BlackKnight) at TotalCon last week and it rekindled my interest in the system.  I bought the gorgeous new hardback edition and a couple of awesome T-shirts from Jeff on the last day of the con and am really looking forward to diving back in.
