About this experience

Stonepick Crossing

Perched atop a century old Dwarven dam, the tiny thorp of Stonepick Crossing is beset by mystery: locals disappear in the middle of the night, strange noises emanate from beneath the dam, and even rumors of a monster in the lake percolate through the community. What is true and what are merely the ale-addled ramblings of old men who fear their own shadows?

Grab your favorite ringer T and 8-track as we travel back to the heady days of the late 70s and early 80s for a session of D&D the way Gary intended. For this foray into the past, we will be relying on the OSRIC rules compilation which can be downloaded for free from Drive Thru RPG.  We will start the session by working through character creation and then dive into the mysteries of the village of Stonepick Crossing.  If there is enough interest, we may turn this into a campaign or a series of one-shots in which we will delve into some of the more significant modules produced by TSR.

Please reach out to House GM James on Discord with any questions.

House GM James Backstory

Greetings programs!

I was hooked on RPGs the very first time I sat down with my friend Connor and rolled up an Elf using TSR’s Basic D&D, aka the Red Box. Since that time, I have played in and/or run games of four of the five editions of the world’s most popular role-playing game, Shadowrun (1st-4th eds.), Cyberpunk, Legend of the Five Rings (1st ed.), Seventh Sea (1st ed.), Call of Cthulhu, and several oWoD White Wolf games, among others.

As for my GM’ing style, I like to center the characters in the story and let everything emanate from there with the players driving the tone of the table itself. I enjoy running games that run the gamut from light-hearted romps to dark suspense to everything in between and as an avocational folk lorist and historian, I enjoy bringing obscure folk lore or an embarrassing amount of research to the gaming table.
