I am a big fan of old-school role playing gaming and OSR. That’s why I want to create a good organization that connects OSR RPG fans locally with each other for all of Europe or even for the whole world. I know that’s “thinking big”, but hey: I think it’s a good idea!
My goal is that wherever you are or move to, you can quickly find local OSR RPG people to play games with, not just online, but sitting together at a real table. For me that’s just a fundamental part of old-school RPGing and one that I want. But I’m not limiting my project just to that because it needs to go hand-in-hand with other things as well. I also want to facilitate online communication and exchange at the same time, because really a lot of things need to come and work together for this to work.
Connecting OSR RPG people to each other locally all around the world is a great big goal, and a long ways off to reach. Just to make sure we won’t get bored on the way to get there, I want everyone to have fun and keep motivated! So I support chatting and online gaming of any OSR system wanted and basically anything you or others want!
What I also want, personally and to keep motivated, is to hold off regular, perhaps even a weekly Dungeon- & Game Masters Roundtable (or several if there is demand) where 10 or so game masters meet and chat online by voice chat about Dungeon- and Game Mastering, about their favourite systems, about rules, about difficulties and experiences with DM-ing and GM-ing, about helping each other out, and anything that’s on their / our minds.
Anyway, I’ve just started this project (December 2021) and all I did so far is set up a Discord server (actually one in German and one in English). Check it out if you like the idea, but please don’t be disappointed if there are not a lot of people there yet. This project just started!
Here’s the invite-link to the English Discord server:
