Re: The Venga Campaign

Tenth session deals with the aftermath in Venga and right into the next adventure which is DCC #28: Into the Wild. Everyone levels up after finishing The Longest Night. First try at the goblin caves of Into The Wild are a complete failure for the party. It becomes during the rest of campaign, "that ...

Re: The Venga Campaign

Ninth session is the climax of the Longest Night. Ugo is revealed to be trying to recover Witchfire using Alexia, but things go wrong when the party gives the sword to Alexia. Ugo escapes. The plot is twisted from the original module, which I again say is really great. This betrayal of trust will be...

Re: The Venga Campaign

Eighth session and the plot thickens after the party encounters Alexia, get stuck in the catacombs, and head out to her lair. I cannot say enough what a great module The Longest Night is. Tremendous of amount of game play in such a small package.

Re: The Venga Campaign

Seventh session as we dive into the Longest Night. I have adjusted the plot a bit. The whole trilogy is really good with tons of game play in each of those little books. Spike is far closer to the truth in his deductions than it appears.

Re: The Venga Campaign

Add a new player who is the wife of Celebrin's player, and, thank God, we move to playing at their house. This will be the group for a large number of sessions getting most of the way through the Witchfire Trilogy.

Re: The Venga Campaign

For the fourth session we added two players, a couple, who unfortunately only showed up for one session. I never made back stories for them beyond the sketchiest of outlines. They wanted to try out C&C, being used to D&D 3.5, and I think they did not find it tactical enough. During this session both...

Third session with three players and Til being NPCed.

He did this really well. Spike played hi...

This arrived while I was away this weekend, and I just read it in one sitting. It is really ideal for adding a Necromancer to a campaign.

One obvious typo is on page 5. The fifth spell between Bouncing Ice Blast and Call Lich is missing a name and level.
