    Overview: They once ruled over the West of Creation. Now they're just trying to get a handle on what it means to be Exalted. Come watch as the Unconquered Sun shakes his head and wonders if his other exalted are more competant. Watch as A-dom makes undead for fun and to annoy Jade's Luck (which are one and the same, really). Watch as the Lunar, Ceri, tries to save Creation from these idiots. Watch as Jahar summons demons because he thinks it's a good idea. They'll get better at the whole religion thing... I hope.

    Title: Shilsen's Saturday Story Hour
    Author: shilsen
    Number of Threads: 1

    Type: Fantasy
    System: D&D 3.5e
    Setting: Eberron

    Started: May 2006 (reposting after boards crashed)

    Style: 3rd person present-tense narrative prose, with some dialogue. Includes a number of 1st person past-tense in-character journal entries by a player. Original writeups were intended as recaps for players and not for a story hour, so starts off a little dry and hard to get into.

    Overview: A bunch of very unlikely heroes (used loosely) try to make their way through the labyrinthine politics and other dangers of Eberron's most exciting and dangerous city - Sharn. Heavily character-driven and fairly open-ended campaign.

    Style: Unreliable 1st person prose, with occasional explanatory or narrative interludes.

    Overview: Today, centuries after the fall of the mighty Gate-Builder empire, the people of CITY face many troubles. Fierce gangs of lawyer/thieves, memory-eating demons, evil cake, the dreaded Yu-Tang Clan, and the terrible Church Without Doors...just to name a few.

    Fortunately for civilization, the mighty alchemist Burne is here to save CITY!

    Or burn it to the ground.

    Oh, and there's some foreigners who follow him around, too. But they're not as important as Burne, nor as attractive.

    The Chronicle of Burne, and Some Others of Lesser Importance An epic, of sorts, if your standards are low.

    You have a great writing style and a sense of humor that you use incredibly effectively. Your painting of the characters in the first post introducing them is superb." - jeremy dnd

    Special: Micah and Tmaas, our two DMs makes excellent maps using Dunjinni mapping software that she will often post to the storyhour itself. However, you can see their past collections as well as the latest maps that are troubling the PCs in this storyhourat the Dunjinni site message boards. Just check for posts under their user names.

    Setting: Homebrew.

    Started: May 20th, 2006.

    Average Installment Length: Verbose.
    Average Frequency of Installments: Twice Monthy.

    Available for Download? No.
    Style: As written for the Players, plus additional narrative.

    Overview: The Wild Lands were originally a neutral zone between the Elorhim (Psionic, spacefaring) and the Calaseans (powerful natural magic-users who control the world and enslave all other races). Now it is a protected region where the descendents of 'Free Humans' (previously escaped slaves) and those freed at the end of the big war 22 years ago try to build the first Free Human governments and Civilization.

    Reader Comment: None!

    Other Comments: Roughly 80 page Player's Guide of Setting information, House Rules, Character Creation, Geographic Information, Economics and Religion Details provided to players before game start.

    House Rules pertain mostly to Wizards and Magic (very few spell components, no spell books, etc), Economics (Silver based, different scaling for magic items) and some character aspects.

    : "In a day when it seems that everyone's turning toward plane-hopping technomagic bigger-badder-more types of styles, your campaign smacks of an original, primeval core of D&D goodness with just enough mystery to keep players coming back time and again. Very, very well done.." --Destan

    Style: 1st person journal style, with occasional winks to the underlying mechanics.

    Overview: Ohhhh, it's a grand tale about childhood friends who grew up in Goldfire Glen told from the perspective of an outsider to Goldfire Glen who met them when they began their adventures. The world is monotheistic for the most part. Though there is the concept of The Green and the anti-god, The Adversary. The PCs uncover a plot against the national religion, Canaanism, which involves a group trying to resurrect a dead Archmage, so they think. Meanwhile, the government is pushing to annex parts of the Wildlands where most of the worshippers of The Green reside. The followers of The Green fear persecution and the destruction of their lands. Meanwhile, the Curia, the organization that runs the Church of Canaan, is pushing the government to invade The Wildlands to get to a place called Rappan'Athuk, where the supposed physical manifestation of a great evil resides. The PCs, are of course, caught in the middle of all of it.
