Madison Games Day was a lot of fun, and a big success. It was held at The Pizza Oven (what a great place to hold a games day!)
Victor Raymond and I were there to represent Madison Traditional Gaming, a group that is trying to renew interest in older editions of RPG's, Wargames, boardgames, etc...
Victor started out running a game of Labyrinth Lord usin Jeff Reints adventure Under Xylarthen's Tower. At first I rolled up a magic user, and we corralled one other player to join in with us. He also rolled up a magic user, so we had to hire a couple of henchmen. Luckily, as gamers were trickling into the room, we acquired four more players to get a decent adventure party going. It was a good "old-school" dungeon crawl, and it took a bit for us to role-play effectively as a group. But then again this is the case with all newer groups.
After a pizza break, we began a game of Empire of the Petal Throne. This is a game I've always been intrigued with, and am glad I had the chance to play it. Victor once again was the GM, and he had us adventurers zooming all around Tekumel in a tube car (basically an elevator that can take you anywhere on the planet). We got a chance to experience the rich culture Tekumel, sometimes it was almost overwhelming how in depth this world really is. I can't wait to get a chance to go back to M.A.R. Barker's world!
By the time we finished with Tekumel it was 9:00 pm, time flies when you're having fun. We met some gamers and are planning on meeting up again for some other games in the near future!
It was a big success and I can't wait for Games Day 3!
