DUNGEONS & DRAGONS - The Mines of Bloodstone
Classic D&D module run for FLAILSNAILS. 
0400-0700 GMT
(2pm Syd / 3am UK / midnight NY / 9pm LA)

Higher level encouraged. 7 players max. Characters any edition, including OSR games (LL/LotFP/etc), but get approval for 3e/3.5 (I missed the 3e era, not as familiar with the rules). If starting a new character, make 4 level 0s or 1s from an OSR Game and pick one as leader and 3 as henchmen. Continuing from last session a few weeks ago, but same players not required. Module run pretty straight, occasional stuff from LotFP modules put in to replace boring stuff.

"A town recently reclaimed from chaos and settled by the people of the Good King is next to an ancient mine. They are desperate for income and need the mine to be productive again...but no one's been down there for a long time. Keep any loose objects you find, discover ore veins for the town, and defeat nasty beasties."

It is May 1642, the King has hoist his standard in Lincoln and issued Commissions of Array, Parliament has passed the Militia Ordinance and are raising an army to defend themselves. But in one soggy corner of south Lincolnshire the locals might be jumping the gun and kicking off the civil war with spot of what appears to be purely local bother. There will be some rules variants, I'll sort out a players doc with what you need to know, but essentially level 1 LotFP humans only, with gear from the Early Modern appendix to the rulebook, pregens will be available.
