On the first weekend of March, 2017, I started running a Spelljammer campaign using the 2nd Edition rules with viewers from my YouTube channel. It currently runs Saturdays from 12pm EST/EDT to 4pm EST/EDT on my Twitch.tv channel. Please join in and watch it live!
The first two episodes of the first session can be watched here on my YouTube channel, and all future sessions will be uploaded there as well:
As part of my celebration of reaching 250 subscribers on Youtube, I am posting the .mdl module files forUGE that I have created for the various Gold Box games that I have LP’d so far. As such, I have not included one for Treasures of the Savage Frontier or Dark Queen of Krynn (mainly because I can’t FIND them right now…). I will post them sometime after I LP them.
I have not included UGE itself, so you’ll have to google for it, but last time I looked, it wasn’t too hard to find. Put these modules in the same directory that the UGE executable is in, and remember, it is a DOS program, so you will need to run it in DOSBox. Important note: BACK UP YOUR SAVE FILES BEFORE MODIFYING THEM. This program makes immediate changes, so there is no “undo” or “revert” option. Also, these files tend to be VERY messy; so feel free to delete lines that you don’t think you’ll use. I also have not documented the variables and such yet, so have fun with Trial and Error. :D If anyone discovers additional important variables (I don’t need things like spells and such unless they are wrong, as they’re easy but tedious to figure out), feel free to let me know.

I should probably post this here, since it is somewhat related, being an AD&D blog and all. :) I started doing a Let’s Play (recorded commentary of a playthrough of a game, basically) of the first SSI Gold Box 1st Ed AD&D Game, Pool of Radiance. I’ll probably be playing through all the Gold Box games at some point, including the Buck Rogers games. Anyway, for those who are interested, you can access the playlist on Youtube. I try to upload a few episodes each day, so keep checking channel or the playlist for updates. I hope you enjoy it!
