Green_Hilltop: Yeah, I'm prepared that we won't probably finish it on the first run - did you mean though that we'd start a new run everytime we all die with the same characters or that we'd be able to have someone respawn or enter the ToH once again with the same character when they die? If you meant the former, that's what I was thinking of when I was suggesting re-runs earlier, since the possibility of having to generate a new character once you die didn't cross my mind, I viewed it just like a normal video game restart with pre-made characters.

And I've always wanted to try out the 1st edition rules, so I'd love to do it with the old ruleset, it'd even make the new character generation easier I guess. :)
Either way works for me with regards to respawning. I saw one guy who did the latter, where each player had a number of lives that got depleted each time they died and reincarnated on the spot, and it seemed to keep the game moving nicely, but whatever works for the party is good.

Fair warning, I don't have access to the 1st edition of AD&D, but from what I can gather the differences between it and AD&D 2E are pretty much nonexistent. Either way, the shift from later editions to AD&D can be a little jarring what with THAC0 and the old Save system to name a few.

First edition is still available in the form of OSRIC. It's available as a free download here.
