How on Earth did I not know about this sooner?! This is brilliant and well-done. Let me express my appreciation for doing something so laborious just for the love of the setting. Awesome work!

I'm glad you like it. And the added benefit is that you now have a lot to read (34 Issues of OH plus 18 from OM). Please feel free to comment or ask anything you like on them :)

That Gloomweaver adventure is a perfect way to expand our rolled Wild Adventure where the companions are to go and find a lost Elven (tainted) heirloom in the ruins of the Refuge near the Mountains of Mirkwood. I decided early on there would already be spiders and their wildmen thralls at the scene, rummaging around the ruins, apparently searching for something too.

Now I know why and who's behind it! :mrgreen:

Tolwen - This is another great issue, well done!

Halbarad - I'm especially enjoying reading The Gloomweaver Awakened and considering how to insert it into one of my chronicles.

I say, are there printer friendly versions available, without images, color and fancy backgrounds etc?

[*]The Gloomweaver Awakened (adventure for TOR) by Paul Kirk
Really love the idea of the The Gloomweaver Awakened and how it is put in the context of Darkening. That being said, I would have put it way further in the timeline, in order to keep the slow burn. Having the "Gloomweaver" as an ennemy for a scenario is a big deal. I would not put it at the beginning of the campaign.

Myself, I think I will put it as the climax of my group interracting with the Sorceress of Mirkwood. My group already met her in "The Pearl of Kings". After that I was planning on playing down the line The Night Wanderers by WbWeather in the Fan Supplement.

Putting The Gloomweaver Awakened in the timeline after those 2 scenarios would be a nice climax, even if a little bit of work is necessary. And I would allow them to actually kill the Sorceress of Mirkwood at that point, since it would be toward the end of Darkening with my party.

Anyway, great scenario, not just for the beginning of Darkening according to me, and establishing the Sorceress of Mirkwood before that adventure makes it more climatic.
