Gold & Glory Campaign

The Kingdom is prosperous and peaceful.  When King Osric "The Reasonably Just" decreed the wild and dangerous Eastern Frontier open to exploration none abandoned their fat and easy lives to risk almost certain doom.  But when King Osric aka "The Relatively Generous" further decreed that there would be no taxes, tariffs, excises, or royal shares levied on treasure recovered from the Eastern Frontier a few desperate adventurers took notice and headed East.  Those few that didn't come to their senses and turn back found themselves in the newly established Barony of Brink, last outpost of civilization and gateway to the Eastern Frontier.

Tomb robbers, out of work mercenaries, professional scoundrels, holy men looking to save or be saved, seekers of forbidden knowledge, naive farm boys with dreams of glory, assorted ne'er-do-wells, and foreigners from near to far all congregate at the Goat & Wizard Inn.  Drinking the last of their coin, eyeing the competition, chasing up rumors and bar wenches.  Eventually, a motley party of assorted characters gathers round a large table to plan their first foray in search of Gold and Glory.

Are you brave or foolish enough to explore the Eastern Frontier in search of gold and glory?  More to the point are you strong enough to survive its perils and return body, mind, and soul intact?

Adventure beckons, will you answer the call?


Gold & Glory is a retro D&D sandbox/exploration campaign designed for any number of players and for players not being able to make it every session (Western Marches Style). Characters take 10min to create.  Rules are fast, loose and learn as you go. Players need nothing other than paper, pencil, and a desire to have fun.  I host a gameday (almost) every Sunday.  Players certainly do not need to attend every session, come when you can.  And not every gameday will necessarily be G&G.  But, if three or more people want to play, it's game on!

[Finally getting this started.  First New Year's Resolution complete six days in, booh yah! ;)]

  1. Sounds fun! Typo in your logo, though: "Frontier," not "Frointer."

  4. True dat.

    I like that West Marches activity is continuing in my home town. The drop-in, drop-in easy charm of my own up there is missed.
