    I put it off for WAY too long.

    Had a great time with it. Kudos to everyone involved.

    Thanks man, that was awesome and I think you nailed the spirit of the, shall we say "tone"? - and what we were going for in many places, perfectly :) For one thing, YES, ever problem was meant to be, at the very least, solvable with violence.

    Re the complete lack of overarching story - I'll just say, it was meant to be emergent gameplay, and the main 'storyline' was meant to be alignment-based: that is, you were meant to work toward an alignment based ending that emerged as you explored, rather than the alignment-based (but ultimately irrelevant) beginning vignettes of the ToEE. Obviously I bit off more than I could chew there and the alignment endings didn't happen.

    It was great fun to play through. I had figured that alignment was likely supposed to play some sort of role everything. A shame that the stories didn't come to fruition, but it was great fun nonetheless.

    "no problem not solvable with violence" is my paladin's vision statement!

    great vid, I hope more old 1e players discover Co8 through this.

    BTW, I remember cutting out the paper chits that came with that edition. I also remember being crestfallen when I pulled a 4 for my first character's strength. I got the revised red box set (with orange dice) shortly thereafter. The orange d20 was rolled into a more or less smooth sphere over time.
