Skype B/X Game

Last night I took part in the B/X game run over Skype (and using GameTable) hosted by Patrick of the Ode to Black Dougal blog. This was my first time playing using skype (and gametable), and I have to say it was very impressive (much better than I thought it would be).

There were only three characters and we couldn't find anyone foolish enough to hire for our quest - so we had to make due with a Cleric, Halfling, and Magic-User (me). We explored a small dwarf-hold hidden behind a waterfall and fought a small band of Kobolds. The cleric was nearly done in by a swarm of centipedes and a giant spider. Good times.

I really enjoyed this session, and hopefully we can continue in a week or two with another session. In the future, I think I may try to start an open sandbox type game using S&W rules.

You can check out our in-between game chats at the game blog here.


  1. Never ever ever ever ever ever lift up a lid in a room that smells like a giant toilet. Ever.

    And now we know why!

  2. Yes, I think we learned our lesson. (Ah, who are we kidding, the next time we find a wooden "lid" over a hole, we will lift it. Just in case there is treasure to be had.) :)

  3. Kudos to Meeps for "drawing the line at being used for a battering ram" (the cleric had tried to give him the job of checking the latrine)....
