OSDM

The Old School DM arrives and quietly moves into a corner. You notice that he's carrying a backpack, a photograph album, and has a hand cart behind him full of cigar boxes (covered with images of paper terrain pieces) and tackle boxes of minis. https://live.staticflickr.com/8371/28805795773_95543cc8...
