Welcome to the Open Megadungeon!

Dungeon adv

I have been tinkering with google+ hangout and think it has real potential for gaming. Given how time poor I seem to be and how I would love to cram some gaming in that doesn’t require the juggling of schedules I figured an Open Megadungeon run via the hangout function could be just the ticket. Open just means anyone can play as long as they have 2 hours free on a Thursday night. Megadungeon means a really big dungeon to explore.

I want to try and stay as faithful as possible to the original rules which means wandering monster rolls, monster reaction rolls, death at -10 HP and so on. If you want to play and need to brush up on rules here’s a link to the Advanced Dungeons and Dragons player guide. I am unlikely to be using any of the extra rules published after the players handbook.

Equipment and starting gold

Each character begins the game with a certain amount of money to buy initial equipment—how much depends on the character‘s class. Clerics and druids receive 30-180gp (3d6 x 10); fighters, rangers and paladins receive 50-200gp ((3d6+2) x 10); magic users and illusionists receive 20-80gp (2d4 x 10), while thieves and assassins receive 20-120gp (2d6 x 10). Multi-class individuals receive the award for the wealthiest of their classes (thus, a fighter/thief would receive the starting money of a fighter, while a cleric/magic user would receive the starting money of a cleric).

Everyone starts with a standard equipment pack that costs 25 gp from your starting gold. You can select from the following:

Pack A – Backpack, large sack, lantern, flask of oil (2), tinderbox, iron spikes (12), small hammer, wine skin (2 pts. wine), Normal rations (7) and a head of garlic.

Pack B – Backpack, Large sacks (2), torches (6), flask of oil (3), tinderbox, 10’ pole, 50’ rope, wineskin (2 pts. wine), normal rations (7), steel mirror

Pack C – Backpack, small sacks (4), iron spikes (12), 50’ rope, wineskin (2 pts. wine), normal rations (7) and either a holy symbol or thieves tools or vial of holy water.
