    Castle Shadowcrag - Anyone run it?

    Has anyone run Castle Shadowcrag yet?

    Main reason I ask is I'm curious about how long it took you to run. I'm tempted to run it over the next 2 sessions for Halloween, but 96 pages with exotic elements seems a bit long for 2 4-5 hour sessions.

    And to make it thread worthy, any have any experiences from it?

    The rules should serve the game, not vice-versa.
    Use the rules, but don't let the rules use you!

    I ran it in Changeling, does that help?

    We did it in two sessions. However, I did more with the role playing and mystery and less with the combat. I also had only three players all very experienced and we could get a lot done in a session when motivated.

    I think you could do it in 2 sessions if you kept things to the major events. There's enough there that you could stretch it out much further, but I think it lends itself reasonably well to shortening. I haven't run it myself, although I was all prepped to - my PC's took a different fork in the road, and so I'll save it for another time...
    "I hurt Firewing." is not something a huge number of people can say. "He dropped a parking garage on me," on the other hand, a lot of people can say. -Kazan, my Champions GM.

    Well, it's better than nothing. One of my players is asking me to run Spirit of the Century.

    My players, on the other hand, can be foot-draggers.
