The (surviving) characters from The Weird Wood adventure managed to escape the Weird Wood and are free to start a new adventure, if they wish so, or to re-start the same adventure and prove to themselves that they can regroup and face the same challenges more successfully next time.

I'd like to complete the Weird Wood quest if possible, but would need reinforcements to help out if possible. I am not averse to completing a different quest first then heading back if that's required, but I've lost a fellow adventurer to the Weird Wood and am keen to finish what we started.

Help with other quests would be considered  in exchange...

As usual, on the 1st of October I take the chance to step back and look at how this Living World campaign is developing. As part of this exercise I also look at some numbers, and the number of posts is of course the first to be reviewed.


First year: 2,500 posts
Second year: 3,000 posts
Third year: 3,800 posts
Fourth year: 2,800 posts
Sixth year: 1,900 posts
Seventh year: 3,400 posts

Total: 17,400 posts



Any comments on your side?

As I said in my PM to the GM, I felt it was a bit sub-standard due to time constraints from work. I'd have loved to have some time to really refine it more as I felt it was a bit waffly in places and could have kept it's pace a little more. The reveal at the end was a little too soon, and I wasn't able to get the best "feel" for the Blackmoor setting as I had hoped.

It's definitely consistent, and I'd be interested to see which characters were active in the "low" years and who was active for the "highs". Still can't believe I've been a part of this game since 2019!!

I just wanted to participate. This is one of the few games that offers a challenge outside of the usual roleplay, and I enjoy the challenge of thinking outside of the box. So win or lose I wanted too challenge myself, and will be participating in each and every addition Dave Arneson or Blackmoor themed challenge.

I've already completed A Night Under the Stars, and looking at the chain of adventures there's one called "The sorcerer's tomb" but it is suggested that we complete Losing Focus and/or Innuendo, but I can't seem to find the adventure Losing Focus. Any info on them would be nice.

...OK who am I kidding, yes they taste delicious. Looking forward to the upcoming Xmas festivities as we rarely eat turkey at any other point in my household. I don't enjoy losing time, but I cannot wait for Xmas Day and Boxing Day as on both occasions we are with family and have a turkey based feast.

Sorry (not sorry) turkeys. Know that your sacrifice is going to be worthy and very tasty.
