Hello to our first two players. I've added a quick hex map to the Game Map.

Map looks great. An army lives and dies on its stomachs maps.

We now have three players in the group.

From reviewing the RtJ everyone has many years of D&D experience, most of you having more than me from the reading of things. I started when my dad bought home the Frank Mentzer's Basic set, so must have been 1983 or perhaps a year later my memory is fuzzy.

I haven't set down any date for starting or rates for posting as I believe both of those things are a group decision. We should find something which suits us all. To give some indication of my availability I would reckon 3 updates a week is fast and 2 a month is slow. I can manage either. For a start time I'm ready when you are.

Teodore the fighter here. Been playing B/X since it came out, pretty much, off and on over the years. I can post three times a week if needed. To be honest, two a month is way too slow even for me. That's just my two coppers.

Greetings, all. Glad to meet my fellow adventurers! Iím hoping to portray a thief or cleric, depending on what the dice allow. :)

I tend to strive for posting two to three times a week in the games that I run. Naturally, that fluctuates based on how real life is treating everyone, but thatís generally a manageable pace for me.

So we have a fighter and magic-user. A question was asked about retainers, my answer is yes you can hire retainers. If you start with a small group I would recommend it. For a larger group you may find it easier to limit how many you bring. I'm not sure how much experience or knowledge people have of Stonehell. I know Ben has previously joined another game on Rpol but they didn't reach the dungeon. Everyone should when they have completed their character roll a d20 for a rumour they have heard about Stonehell whilst on their travels. I will give one hint here for free, Stonehell has a reputation for being thin on treasure even for an experienced group of dungeon explorers, so this needs to be considered when hiring retainers too.

Does anyone else have any prior knowledge of Stonehell or other megadungeons?

I'd never heard of it before, and I haven't read any of the other published mega-dungeons.

I'm in The Halls of Arden Vul link to another game and owned a copy of Tegel Manor as a kid.

I'm also in one of Loughcrew's games.

3+ a week is fine for me--although occasionally a few days pass by before I sit down and post.

Ben will carry a lantern.

How would like for us to generate retainers? Ben plans to retain one of suspect loyalty.
