2010-12-15 Sea of Five Winds is a Go

I’ve been running a biweekly science fiction campaign on Wednesday evenings. These sessions are short. We play from 20:00 to 23:00. We started out using Mongoose Traveller and switched to Diaspora. But I just never got into the science fiction groove. Even after seeing all the Firefly episodes, I felt a bit stumped.

This evening everything came together. I wanted to talk about the campaign in 2011, our mid term plans. Before I knew it, we were talking about our preferences, our dislikes, and made the following plan: I was going to run Labyrinth Lord in the Wilderlands of High Fantasy until the summer 2011. That’s going to be about 12 sessions. Then we’ll see. If we feel like changing, Harald might run some Earthdawn and Artesia inspired The Shadow of Yesterday.

I had already prepared a few pages on the new (German) campaign wiki, so I had already picked a starting location: Oakcomb on the Sea of Five Winds and Tlan map. I had prepared four missions:

  1. pick up some stuff from Oglepuss
  2. pick up some stuff from Greydowns
  3. guard a merchant on the way to Pillage
  4. fight a giant riding a huge mesozooic bird and wielding a gargantuan lance in exchange for half the kingdom of the acorn elves

The party decided to go to the Greydowns. :)

We also rolled up some characters. The two average guys decided to play a dwarf and an elf. The elf ended up with a single hit point. The third player rolled up a below average character with a charisma of 17. I offered the bard class from Jonathan Becker’s BX Companion. The offer was accepted.

I am soooo excited to get this campaign started in 2011!! :D 👌 ❤ ✌ 8-)



Sounds like fun times. You will have to let us know how it goes. The last of those quests sounds like some seriously good times.

I’m really looking forward to see how long I can stake it out with one hit point.
