Seeing the Elephant

What's 'Wampus Country' all about?

It's about a couple of things, mashed together --

1) Playing classic fantasy roleplaying games and related material.  Particularly Moldvay B/X and Labyrinth Lord, but I think much of what appears here will be of interest to folks playing Swords & Wizardry, LotFP, and related games.

2) Pulling gaming material from North American folklore - such as the eponymous Wampus.

3) Implementing a 'magical' fairy-tale feel in rpgs.

That's it.  Tall tales, fairy tales, the American wilderness from, say, 1700 to 1900.  That's what we're 'mashing up' with D&D here at Wampus Country.

Rip off that platemail and put on some buckskins; set aside your crossbow in favor of a rifle.  Sit a spell and listen to some tall tales of the piney mountains. 

We're here for a different flavor of adventure.  We're here to see the elephant.
