Re: There and Back Again (Gencon)

My first Gen Con was amazing! It felt like a great folk moot, a gathering of the tribe. It was really wonderful meeting Jacob (zedturtle) and James, and the whole C7 team! Special thanks to Jacob for fitting my friend into one of his TOR sessions. He had never played TOR before and you turned him in...

On the topic of GenCon, I'll be at the Pelgrane booth (1317) most of the con. Always happy to talk TOR and enthuse about Tolkien.
Can't wait! Hopefully, I won't be so nervous that my knees give out and I end up jibbering on the floor.

Re: Our Darkening of Mirkwood Finale

Thanks for the report Marco, which I found very enjoyable. I particularly liked the Hobbit going off to write the definitive guide to cooking Mushrooms - it's details like that which raise TOR above the average :lol: . You're welcome! I can't take credit for the mushroom bit. That was all Susie, ou...

Re: Our Darkening of Mirkwood Finale

I complimented Becket on the amazing end to his campaign over on G+, but mention of Gencon reminded me to say that if any TOR fans are going to the con, stop by and say hi. I'm about to start up an Eriador based campaign and would love to talk some TOR/ME at the con. I'll be at the Arc Dream booth ...

Congratulations on running the entirety of the Tale of Years! That's a rare accomplishment.
Thanks. I haven't completed a long-running campaign since I was a kid, and never one that ran that long! It was nice to have committed, invested players.

Re: Our Darkening of Mirkwood Finale

Thanks for sharing this great tale, there seems to have been moments of both heroic acceptance worthy of myth and creative player input. Is there a chronicle somewhere of your Darkening Campaign? It would be really nice to read more about it! I'm especially interested in the offspring of the old he...

Re: Our Darkening of Mirkwood Finale

Beautiful. I'm very pleased to read such a story, and can't but congratulate your players for being epic and in-character with their decissions. I'm sure you enjoyed the campaign as much as them! Thank you! I really did. They're a great group. I love how it ended with the unanswered question of wha...

Our Darkening of Mirkwood Finale

That’s a wrap! My long-running TOR campaign came to an end last night. We've been playing since the slipcase edition first came out. With a few exceptions (notably the Ranger and Hobbit), the player-heroes at the end of the Darkening of Mirkwood were the offspring of those very first characters. Wit...
