[YouTube] Never-ending D&D campaign

Post by timemrick » Thu Jan 18, 2018 3:18 pm

This guy has been running the same D&D campaign for 35 years. Some of the regulars here will be pleased to see that the one rulebook shown in the video is from 2nd edition.

Wow! That video (from Great Big Story) has had 18K views!

I was trying to work out what campaign setting Robert Wardhaugh uses, but it looks like he uses stuff from multiple settings.

Well, 1st Edition would have been better but 35 years in damned impressive.

If the Unapproachable East was so unapproachable, how did anyone get there?

If he converted to D&D from a Little Wars campaign, that would have been even more impressive. ;)

There is an interview with Robert Wardhaugh on the Official D&D Podcast:
Shelly Mazzanoble and Greg Tito on the WotC website wrote:We speak to a very special Dungeon Master, Robert Warbaugh, about his D&D campaign that's been running 2 sessions per week for 34 years. Jason Hashimoto provides the player's perspective to Warbaugh's campaign.

Subscribe to the Official D&D Podcast on iTunes to get updates for new episodes. Shelly and Greg are always talking to creative Dungeons & Dragons players like comedians and TV writers Mike Drucker (The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon) and Jared Logan (The Late Late Show with James Corden), as well as professional game masters Griffin McElroy (The Adventure Zone) and Matt Mercer (Critical Role) and actors like Rainn Wilson (The Office).

Listen to the podcast.

He started in 1982, so it would have been 1st Edition, B/X, or OD&D. I'm betting on 1st, because of all of D&D's many edition changes, I recall 1st edition to 2nd as being the least painful transition.

I think you are right. Although the various Classic D&D editions seem so similar that I'm still struggling to work out where one ends and the next one begins. :)
