Re: The Marnor Campaign

First the characters and players. 15 characters, 10 players, 80 sessions, 29 Adventures: 1) Gerag, Monk from Level 1->6 in 80 sessions. Played by Greenbadge. Survived 2) Middlin, Fighter from...

Re: The Marnor Campaign

The last adventure was A Pound of Flesh from 0one Games. That was obviously a giant bargain as we played the hell out of it for many sessions. Excellent stuff.

Re: The Marnor Campaign

No module, just lots of character driven running about the city and setting them up for the next adventure. As greenbadge notes the campaign has become rather more of a sand box than usual. I think that is evidence of growth by me as a CK and the players who have gotten more comfortable just doing s...

Re: The Marnor Campaign

We were very fortunate to add Odhran and his player. He has been very imaginative and provided an excellent breath of fresh air to our efforts. This is mostly Death in Freeport which is being used as Marnor. It is a good adventure and simply sets us up for more. The long running struggle with The Pl...

Re: The Marnor Campaign

Some set up and an adventure based on The Rise Of The Goblin Guild for Pathfinder. That is a quite a good one. Aron dropped out, he only played two actual sessions, and we elect to continue with Ekkie from the adventure being an NPC thief. At the end of this Seth and Jessica had to drop out, we fell...

Re: The Marnor Campaign

This adventure is mostly the Lair of the White Salamander from Dungeon Crawl Classics The Adventure Begins. This is a rather brief summary that I gave the current players as a reminder after a hiatus caused by me moving. It hooks the characters into a rather twisted version of the Freeport Trilogy. ...

Re: The Venga Campaign

Thanks for the nice words of encouragement. I am a scientist, and measuring stuff is just what I do. On a more serious note, I do like to have an idea of how fast characters advance and how many sessions I can guess a module to take. Both of these aid in figuring out what to prepare for the future. ...

Re: The Venga Campaign

Session 56 is an NPC from the past coming back to bite them, some role playing, and then "dungeon crawl" in a pocket dimension. Through a combination of good play by the players and good luck, they get out unscathed and with what they sought. The end of the campaign is in sight.

Session 54 is the consummation of their deal with the necromantic crime lord, who seems to enjoy discomfiting them. We start a big dungeon crawl, and a nameless grunt, that would be Mr. Grunt to you, fells a big opponent with a critical hit.
