    Style: 3rd person narrative prose, [mature] Sweet Jesus this is not grandma safe. Violence, sex, occasional gore. Not over the top just to be over the top, but I don't water down the actions or psychology of the fiends.


    Overview: Lower planar politics on a grand scale. All is not well within the House of Baern. What begins as upheaval and civil war within the three Planes of Conflict of Gehenna, Carceri, and the Waste, will see the rise of a new Oinoloth, the slide of a layer of Elysium, and a copious amount of blood spilt where the 'loths have their talons sunk deep.

    Style: 3rd person omniscient, with references to the metagame. Humorous.

    Overview: A simple dungeon feature gets exploited by the players into a full-fledged business, throwing the plot out of the window and resulting in a rollercoaster ride of greed and ambition.

    I thought that it was time someone said that this story hour rocks! Good work on making the setting come to life.

    Type: Western with Fantasy elements.
    System: Hybrid D&D and Boot Hill
    Setting: American Southwest and Europe in 1881 and 1882 on a world that includes D&D races, spells and religious pantheons.

    Started: 06/10/2002
    Status: Completed 16/10/2005
    Average Installment Length: Short
    Average Frequency of Installments: Completed, contains 10 modules of varying length, 100 installments total.

    Available for Download? No
    Style: 3rd person narrative prose.

    Overview: Western saga centered around a mult-racial group of gunslingers. Begins and in southeastern Arizona with the middle segment being a journey to and from Victorian-era Europe. Atypical western in that D&D elements are present in the story which also contains a heavy mix of historical characters as well as characters from popular culture. Fans of "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" should really enjoy this one.

    Reader Comment: From Col Pladoh (Gary Gygax):
    SilverMoon,
    Great stuff, and thanks for the mention. Fact is I have been a fan of Western history for many a year, mainly encouraged thus by my old friend Don Kaye. Your hybrid campaign is so interesting that I am sure many a D&Der will give the genre a try...if they can find a copy of BOOT HILL, that is, I know I am ready to play some Wild West adventuring right now!
    Cheers, Gary
