Which to Run: LL+MF hexcrawl or 1e AD&D classic modules?
Checking interest, I've got a couple ideas:

#1 LL+MF+ASE hex/lair crawl, this is a B/X D&D clone with a Gamma World and some Anomalous Subsurface Environment stuff mixed in (which is a bit like a mix of the two on it's own, just more of the same) Magic & science in a distant post apoc world much like Thundarr but a bit bigger city with some strange advanced tech as a base.

#2 1e AD&D Classic modules - going through the (in)famous modules of 1e more for nostalgia purposes and to introduce/run for people who never experienced them.  I could start with T1, but a lot of people have played that, and I've been stuck running low level for a long time and am wanting to run something a bit higher.  I would consider something like Forgotten Temple of Tharizdun which I've never run or even as high as Against the Giants.

I'd vote for ASE, I played in an ASE game once (I still have the worldbook floating around somewhere) and would love to bring back my Scientist!

In reply to DavidVC (msg # 2):

I wouldn't actually be running ASE, as I found I don't care for Megadungeons, but I would be allowing Scientist, Moktar, Insect Man, and Robot characters as well as equipment from it, and possibly be based in Denethex (haven't decided the last bit.) But different gods, as I just don't connect with the satellite gods.

I'm heavily leaning toward that one the more I'm thinking on it.  I'd probably start around 3rd level, as I'm getting tired of running 1st-2nd level starting games.

Only one taker, but I decided to create #1.
