Tenth Session Comments

<t>Very good session with the party realizing how difficult vampires can be. Good mix of action and role playing. Drakthar's Way is proving to be<br/> <br/> lots of fun. Looks as if we will get three sessions out of it. Livy becomes a<br/> <br/> semiregular, played by the niece of one of the regular...

Ninth Session Comments

<t>Good session dominated by role playing. A good change of pace from the last few. They begin on Drakthar's Way from Shackled City. The town from<br/> <br/> Shackled City came as a shock as it looks much like Caron being centered on a volcano with a round lake in the middle. I thought of Caron back...

Eighth Session Comments

Excellent session. Dungeon Crawl Classic Legend of the Ripper is

an excellent module. Both players and Castle keeper have an

excellent time. They are also getting set up for the next adventure and a meeting with Dr. Copelius.

Seventh Session Comments

<t>Generally a good session, but the party was mostly reduced to spectators at the end. I am sort of torn by this as they did well to leave the dungeon when they were depleted learning their lesson from the last module, but they leave no watch on the dungeon exit letting their quarry escape and lett...

Sixth Session Comments

<t>Another short session due to real world interference. Excellent fun in Blacktooth Ridge. Great module with its PDF additions. Three sessions<br/> <br/> so far and at least one more to come. Foreshadowing of the next adventure works well as the characters wonder what is going on back in Caron.</t>

Fourth Session Comments

Lots of fun with the first Blacktooth Ridge PDF. A really great value for $1. Also setting them up for what happens back in Caron with news reports and the consequences of the drugs from their last adventure. Another really good session.

Second Session Comments

<t>Another very good session. Shadows of the Halfling Hall is an excellent<br/> <br/> introductory module. It could have easily have been a TPK when Rivery found the Bag-o-Bones. Actually it probably should have been as I forgot to<br/> <br/> do half damage for edged weapons. Not really sure what Ri...

<t>Idea for the first session is obviously stolen from "The Usual<br/> <br/> Suspects".

Hi

I live in Dearborn and would be interested in being a player.

I ran a C&C campaign in 2006 when I was in Chicago.

I sent you a private message with my email.
