The Temple of the Iron God has stood for centuries, its monks performing funeral rites for the nearby hillfolk and interring the bodies in the Iron God’s underground catacombs. But now there are rumors that the temple has been destroyed in a terrible storm. The Priesthood of Anubictos have summoned you to help them find out why.
This game is listed in the Gaming & BS Roundtable spreadsheet.
- Concept: An old-school dungeon crawling adventure by the author of Swords & Wizardry, a retro-clone of the original D&D rules from the mid-1970s. Explore the ruins of a destroyed temple with some low-level characters, find out what happened, and bring home some treasure.
- Aim: To have fun and complete an OSR adventure module in a couple of sessions. Pregens available.
- Tone: Low fantasy. A bit grim. Some light humor is fine, but we’ll try to keep it mostly serious.
- Subject Matter: To quote Harrigan’s TBH 2e pitch: “Classic OSR stuff – exploration, resource management, fighting foes, finding treasure, leveling up”
I’m looking for 3 to 5 players for 2 or 3 sessions, each about 3 hours long. I’m generally available during weekends, Monday evenings, and Thursday evenings. I’m in the US Central time zone.
We’ll use Discord for voice and (optional) video, and probably Owlbear Rodeo as our VTT.
The rule book is (legally) available as a PDF for free from several places online. That usually includes the publisher’s website, but it seems to be having technical difficulties so here’s a Google Drive link instead. Edit: The publisher’s site is back up: Swords & Wizardry: Complete Rulebook – Frog God Games
