Our regular AD&D DM was unavailable so one member of our group ran an OD&D one-shot through Tegel Manor with mid level characters. He used just the 3 LBBs with Chainmail combat and JG Ready Ref sheets. We listened to time period appropriate music: Hawkwind, Genesis, Kraftwerk and Gentle Giant. The party met many strange and deadly encounters around, under and in the haunted manor. Fun.
This was the party, per the session report by the DM:
Clark, C5 Majic Ooser, MU3, his henchman (these two were mine. I have a fondness for generic names for characters ala Melf - my AD&D character for the last three years has been a half-orc named Horq).
Florian, an Elf 4/5 Wesley (deceased), F3, his companion (killed by a non-standard slithering tracker)
Woe, F5, Chervil, C4, her henchman
Duncan, D3 (was 4) (drained by a wight) and Talisen, MU3, his companion

Awesome Zenopus! Glad to hear you're having fun. I love the looseness of OD&D. I haven't tried it with Chainmail combat, but always keep those JG Ready Ref. Sheets by my side (yet to crack them in game yet though. Fun names too!
