This is the end of the campaign dairy that as GM I was writing, For some reason I stopped!  It was probably my longest and favourite campaign I ever GM'd.  I  think it went for some 18 months.

The adventures continued, most people achieving Rune level status.  The party continued to enter the Big Rubble and eventually the River of Cradles campaign with the giant baby in the Cradle that came down the Zola Fel river.  That was a pretty awesome time.


There where many players bringing characters in and out of play which was great from my perspective, it only added to the scope of play.


The Players and their Characters.


Tony    -    Alexander Rhanan the Panash'e

Kev    -    Channi Lanfleur the Yelmalio, Katy the Android & Krag the Cleaver

Phil (aka Hob)    -    Whitestar, Tarnya, Sasha and Roshlaw

Len    -    Bonnie the Orlanthi

Ross    -    Paygor of Mostal & Dangly

Keith    -    Alfuka & Anatolia

Aran    -    Geoff

Phil    -    Aerain

Robert    -    Oladahn


All the other characters in the dairy are NPC's. 

One interesting thing of note is Paygor the Dwarf, who is not actually a Dwarf but a very short human who wore a disguise.  He and his "companion" played a very careful role throughout.  You may note in the diary that he takes the Troll hero's severed head away?  No one ever found out that he was secretly a Thanatari!

We have a little more for this interested in this. The surviving diary of Chanii Lanfluer.

But there is more! The surviving diary of Paygor

See the most of the campaigns characters!
