The secondary reason for spending the (potential) snowbound day writing is that it’s time to get those muscles flexing again in preparation for the Stonehell Dungeon sequel. Next month marks the return to those night-haunted halls and a journey deeper into its forbidding depths, so it’s time to get back in creative shape. I’d hate to disappoint with the sequel, which are notoriously uneven by their very nature.
Regarding Stonehell, I do have a request for you fine folks. I’ve noticed that a few of you out there are either currently using the dungeon in your campaign or plan to do so in the near future. I’m extremely curious to hear of you and your players’ experiences with the dungeon. By this, I don’t mean “They love it” or “It sucks mud, Mike” (although feel free to pass those along if you wish), but instead HOW you are using the dungeon. If you regularly do post-game write-ups, I invite you to send me a copy of your exploits. If you’re blogging about the game, drop me a link so I can follow along. I’m mostly interested in what you’re doing to make the place your own.
Of the write-ups that I know of out there, James Miskimen of The Call of the Dungeon blog writes my favorite. Not only does James do them in character, but he’s truly made the dungeon his own beast, which makes reading about the place very interesting for this author. It was my hope that people would take this exact approach with Stonehell Dungeon and I’m pleased James has been doing so for so long (James and his players first started exploring Stonehell when it was just a bunch of PDFs). You can catch up on his reports here.
So why not win fame and renown for yourself and your players by clueing me into your own exploits into Stonehell? Leave a comment here or send an email to poleandrope[at]gmail[dot]com. I’d love to hear from you.
