11 to “Save or Die Podcast Adventure 1”
I started out with Holmes too and when everybody moved onto ‘Advanced’, Holmes basic was kinda looked down upon but it was always my go-to game. I’ve always liked the rule-lite concept of most any game especially RPGs.
Oh, one other thing, I played the heck out of B1 which came with my Holmes set. It’s a great module on two levels that can be, at times, quite a challenge to map for new players. The filling in of treasure and monsters was a challenge for me as a new RPG player but now I look back on that concept as pure genius. More mods should be set up that way. B2 is good too.
Agreed; the more I read and re-read B1 the more I’m impressed. If possible I’d like to have Mike Carr on the podcast and get his opinion of how B1 was created and how its stood after 30 years!
Use for the Thoul: I’d use them as freshly created creatures in the vats of a necromancer that sells them to hobgoblin kings.
Hm. That’s a pretty good idea actually. Not only explains how they combined, but why you probably wouldn’t run into them much outside of a Hobgoblin King’s court. Thanks for the idea!
wow, congrats on the great podcast!

I seem to remember Dave Arneson make claim to have come up with the Thoul in the interview he gave to Mortality Radio.
Just discovered your podcast and delight in listening to “my people” discuss the greatness of the game. Looking forward to the rest of the series and more to come. Long may you wave.
