Site Description

This is a site for collecting information about a roleplaying game, run using Goblinoid Games' "Labyrinth Lord" game.

The Game

The Redrock Raiders are a fictional group of adventurers, mercenaries, thieves and tomb-robbers based in a small fishing village in a fantasy setting. Their village is fortuitously located near the ruins of an ancient civilisation, drowned in long-forgotten cataclysm.

Multiple GMs, with multiple groups, run adventures in a shared setting, and document their adventures on this site. Players and characters can migrate between groups, playing on a casual basis, and have their contributions recorded and added to the growing "story" of the Redrock Raiders.

The Philosophy

D&D is a fun game, but I couldn't eat a whole one, y'know? It's fun to play a game now and then, but long-term it's a bit unsatisfying. What's great is just to be able to bust out the 3d6's now and then, roll up a character and explore a dungeon for a while. It's fun to prep some dungeons, but doing it on a weekly basis can be a drag. Casual D&D is where it's at. On the other hand, some of the stuff that's fun about exploration type games is only achieved through long-term play: Getting familiar with locations in the setting, sharing stories with friends, developing history with characters, and actually going up a level or two.

This project is an attempt to get the best of both worlds. Casual, pick-up play with whoever is available, combined with a shared history and exploration of a persistent world.

Awesome!

Awesome indeed.
