Looks as though an awesome 1st edition group is forming at the Guild at Wollongong University- turns out there are AD&D players in the 'Gong I knew nothing about! Might be a round-robin in terms of DMing, but that's great- I'd love another chance at running a PC for AD&D anyway. Hopefully my game will come up soon enough on the roster, so I'm prepping my campaign at triple-time for Monday night just in case.
In order not to railroad my PCs, I'm leaving Castle Greyhawk as the nominal focal point of the campaign, but placing a bunch of other dungeons (at least one another megadungeon) around the Cairn Hills- I won't place credit for those at this point in case my players get wind of this blog, but these other dungeons (renamed) include:
1- Old Greyhawk Dungeon
2- Lonesome Hill Dungeon
3- Tower of the Apprentice
4- The Spore Caverns
My PC's might also choose to tramp it overland to the Temple of Elemental Evil. I'm even considering modding out Maure Castle and Rappan Athuk for my campaign (though at a later stage). The plan is that many (or at least several )campaigns might take place in this area over the coming years- but especially that the players can choose what to explore and where to go, with their success based to a large degree upon the quality of the information they gather ahead of time...
I'll also be allowing for the possibility that they might simply want to bum around the Free City for a while- city encounters will be at hand, but also, the urge to refill limp coin purses should be an admirable goad into the various catacombs about the place...
