Re: Welcome

Hi everyone, I joined last week or so but I am an incorrigible lurker, heh. Joined up for a couple of reasons: Firstly, to track the progress of the newest edition of DD, the Reliquary. Secondly, to read some of the fantastic PBP action here.

For myself, I used to play (mostly DM) D&D when I was younger, way more than I should have perhaps (haha. Sound familiar? ;) ). In those days, it was mostly B/X (of any variety I had at the time, including Holmes for a bit); Then it was off to AD&D and even 2nd Edition (which I no longer really like). This was close to 20 years ago, or thereabouts.

Now, as I get older, I yearn for the feel and style of play of the original 1974 rules, and considering this, I sure wish I had heard of DD earlier than I did! But, better late than never as they say, and with the new edition on the horizon, it may be the best time ever to have heard of this game. I am greatly looking forward to it.

Having a bit of fun trying to learn my way around LibreOffice to create my own draft with artwork I find online and a smattering of my own houserules* typed in, also, that I plan to send off to Lulu to create a personalized copy for myself also.

*And by this, of course I mean, "my own houserules liberally stolen I mean 'politely borrowed' for personal consumption from those more wise and proficient with the workings of the game than myself".

My great thanks to Mr. Dubeers and Mr. Bull for the wonderful, hard work they have produced here that has brought a style of play, and the wonderfully crafted documentation for such, to a man who may never have been exposed to them due to being born a few years too late :) THANK YOU both!

Happy gaming folks... "Merctime" (Tim)

Re: Welcome

Hi, everyone. I'm here for several reasons :
- First, Delving Deeper is a work of love shared freely with others (and for almost nothing for the paper version). That's a really big thing : thanks to waysoftheearth ! :D
- Second, DD is a game I'm about to play with my wife and children (a fairy tale version, not too violent),
- Third, I wished to contribute in a small way : see you soon on the DD software board.

I guess I should say "hi!". I am an old SPI hex-and-chit and WRG Ancients wargamer, who just loves creating dungeons and running them. I could be happy never leaving the dungeons - who needs wilderness?
