I'm pretty new to old-school D&D. I've been wanting to play for the longest time, but with all these PBP games drying up, and no one around me who plays, I never found the chance. Now I'm taking the initiative and starting my own first PBP game. I'm not very experienced with DM'ing, so bear with me.
I will be using the three brown-box books, and I might be cherry-picking rules from the Greyhawk supplement a little. We will not be using the Thief or Paladin classes however; just the basic Fighting-Men, Clerics, and Magic-Users. For dice, we will be using www.invisiblecastle.com/roller/ When you roll your dice on that page, there will be some BBCode under it. Copy the BBCode, and paste it in your post. It will look like this: 3d6=11
The campaign setting will be kind of a nautical version of the Canterbury Tales. You will be playing as sailors and pilgrims on a quest to reach the holy islands. I'll be posting more information on the setting either tonight or tomorrow.
If you wish to play, you can sign up here. Please don't sign up unless you know that you are able to post at least three times a week. My deskjob allows me to check this site every day, so I should be able to update often.
So, is anybody interested?
I should warn you guys though that I have never DM'd for OD&D before, so please bear with me.

I want to start playing on the 22nd of this month. I want to get as many people signed up before that date as I can, but people can still continue to sign up past that date. The boat will be stopping at many ports on the way to the holy island. New adventurers can be recruited at these places.

OK, so my original plan was to start playing on the 22nd (this Saturday). If you guys would prefer though, we can start playing on Friday or Thursday. When do you guys want to set off on your journey? Saturday Friday Thursday

The party is currently in the island/city of Otiv. It's a college town, but also a recruiting center for pirates. The party has met up with a campus organization called the Green Candle Organization that rescues animals and fights undead. They appear to be getting ready to embark into the catacombs.
