New Microlite74 Forum — Join Now

We haven’t had a lot of luck with message boards. I get too busy to do the software maintenance and spammer management, so our boards eventually die.

AD&D2e Campaign Reports

The RetroRoleplaying message board doesn’t see a lot of use, unfortunately. However, if you are at all interested in AD&D2e, CondorDM has posted a couple of session reports from his campaign: CondorDMs Sessions journals. The Brown Box Dungeons and Dragons Goodies Cancer Fund Drive continues for a few more hours (technically, until midnight...
