I will play your game as long as I'm not a Gnome.

Oh man, I had that Dragon shirt when I was 15. I always wondered what happened to it.
We didn't so much play AD&D back then but try to find ways to play a pretty much different game. There were so many optional rules that we just made up our own optional rules as we went. Like we never started people out on level 1. It's rought being a level 1 Wizard, with only one spell at your command, and everyone always chooses Magic Missile. So we'd let people be anywhere from level 2 to level 4 starting out. Blasphemy, I know.
People were always like 'what Campaign are you playing?' and I was like "my own." and they'd go "what do you mean?" and I'd go "I made up my own world, my own gods, my own maps, some new creatures, weapons, etc." and they'd go "jeez, you don't have a life, do you?" and I'd go "I made it all up at school.", which I did. I'd sit in class drawing dungeons and talking about traps with this dude named Rusty.
Looking back, I'm glad I grew out of it, but it was an alright way to kill the time.
I don't think anybody except severely autistic people ever played D&D exactly by the rules. Besides it says right there in yer AD&D DM's guide that the rules are really just a guide and not meant to be adhered to severely.
That's what I have to say about that.
By the time I was 15 I had stopped playing RPGs and started doing acid and planning how I was ever going to see a girl's boob that wasn't on a TV screen. This made for a brief but interesting transitional period where role playing games became about how our characters would go about fucking any females (nobody ever took advantage of the gender differences between the other players' characters because that would be "gay") in the campaign.
That game gave way to a completely made up game where we would describe sexual scenarios with girls we found attractive in our school, each written on a piece of paper and drawn out of a hat. I also remember dropping acid and trying to play Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles but instead just sitting there smiling and staring at the walls, giggling and being terrified that every roll of the dice was changing the structure of the universe in a profound and unknowable way.
