Hi NoboysHome, just dropping by to let you know that i just finished reading the whole campaign for the second time (what? i liked it, it's not like i have something more important to do...) and i really had to make my sincere compliments for the amount of work, commitment and consistency that you and your players put in the story. Your world and NPCs feel so real and consistent, and your players are one of the most committed roleplayer i've ever known/seen/read about.

I'm actually GMing RotRL for a group of new players and it couldn't be more different (if my players are ever going to reach Karzoug he is probably going to ask them lessons about greed); but your journal has helped me a lot, even if you set a standard that i can't see me or my players reach any time soon.

Btw, i can guarantee that there are many more people lurking and reading your posts that you think, and it's been a while... soooo, no worries, no hurry, but we kinda know where you live, so whenever you feel like getting back to writing would be cool for us...

Just to let you know ours is still going, the party is lvl 11 now and approaching the Storval stairs.

I had fleshed out a bunch of villages and towns with their main occupants that the might pass through tracking the giants but of course they simply Teleported from Sandpoint to Turtleback Ferry and then hired a row boat up the river. Mokmurian is probably going to still be in his pyjamas when they reach him.

Just mentioning as your campaign is still paying dividends for great ideas and foreshadowing how things may play out.

Cheers!


Just finished reading this, and I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate all of the time & effort you (and your players) have put into making this journal so complete and so damn fun to read. I'm GMing (after a 25+ year hiatus) ROTRL for my wife and kids and one of their friends now - we're about halfway through book 2 - and while my players' party is *very* different from yours, it is very helpful to see how you ran your campaign and your players dealt with the challenges. I know how hard it is to get my own notes converted into a detailed campaign journal when I'm just writing for myself; I can't imagine how you were able to get all this done while holding down a job and gaming as much as it looks like you do. Congratulations on a job well done.

Aw, thanks! Yeah, it was a huge amount of work -- you'll notice I'm not doing journals for the more recent campaigns. A combination of the kids having homework, Rift, and having to prep multiple games just ate up all available writing time.

The final notes for both this campaign and my Wrath of the Righteous campaign stare balefully at me from my "To Do" box, but I doubt they'll see more than that before retirement... :-P

Sad panda.

Good as always.

You know, my brother posted the journal for my RotRL campaign because I was unable to do so......................................................................

I know what you mean. There have been times when I feel like I spend more time on the kids' homework than I ever did on my own...

Oh, I can absolutely confirm that one. My parents had a very strict, "Once you're done with dinner, 7-8 pm is homework time."

Yes. I spent one hour doing homework a night. That's it.

And yet I survived high school, went on to college, and got a Ph.D.

So what's up with the whole, "Your middle-school-aged child should be spending 2-3 hours per night on homework."

Do they really think that's helping them appreciate school more?


The strangest part is that I feel like my daughter's large, public high school does a better job managing the homework load than my son's small, normally very responsive, private middle school.

Having somewhat recently (10 years) been in middle school, I can confirm that it is a crucible of suffering. Though, after the first year I was transferred into a K-8 and it was a lot less stressful.

. . . But 6 hours of homework a night in high school was a bit overwhelming.
