Re: Random OD&D Dungeon Solo Play Report #3 - The Riches of Graf the Veteran

Thanks for the comment and you're welcome! That sounds like a fun session, and I agree solo gaming is totally worth it when you have even just an hour or so of downtime (I've also done some Holmes sessions that I'll post when I can).

Erwin flees with the others!

Re: New S&W Boxed Set - anyone get it?
