The Upcoming Adventures thread
EDIT: since nobody's actually voting on the proposal, I'll just turn this into the Upcoming Adventures thread itself.
Planning an adventure? Make a brief post about it here, in as much detail as you want (no need to give away surprises!)
Also it would be great to give an estimate of when it'll start, whether "I'm just starting to think about it" or "It's approved and I'll start as soon as I get enough players" or something in between. That'll let other DM's plan their adventures to not overlap yours, and let the poor players in the Hanged Man know if there'll be anything for them soon.

I think this is a great idea. I'd slightly prefer a thread, just so I could subscribe to it, which I can't seem to figure out how to do with wiki pages. I don't know that it needs to be all official, with a proposal and whatnot; someone just make a thread.

Might as well use this one, then. I've got a relatively short adventure awaiting approval (I'll probably submit it again, seeing as how I decided to nerf some of the encounters. Incidentally enough, Skeleton Archers from Open Grave are WICKED strong. I figured I'd try something different with the second encounter and base the archers off skeletons rather than elves. Big mistake. Doubleshot hits for 2d10+something-or-other on two PCs. Without Utility powers, two Skeletal Archers would pretty much cripple a 1st level party) called "Fire and Ice". It's a short little excursion that involves dragons, ninjas, and (go figure) plenty of both fire and ice. So far I've got one person interested, and I'd like to get a full party of five 1st-2nd level PCs.

Personally, I would suggest making a new sticky thread similar to the approved character's thread. Instead of alphabetic sections, you can have three or four adventure sections. One say "Submitted Adventures", one say "Approved Adventures", one say "Active Adventures" and one be for "Completed Adventures". You can put up a date and time stamp on the adventures. This way, everyone knows where each adventure is.
I only suggest this, if people start posting adventures they plan to run and such here, there's nothing to give you an idea of what state the adventures are in.
For example, I am currently in the Turtledome thread playing in the Battle Bone adventure. However, I would be interested in playing in the Fire and Ice adventure because, well...dragons and ninjas. Who wouldn't want to play that? Anyway, when I get done with Battle Bone, it would be nice to know where the adventure stands. I know the "Active" and "Completed" sections aren't necessary, but just add a nice archiving touch.
But these are just my personal thoughts.

I guess this thread isn't a full "proposal" needing voting and stuff - but I do think we should discuss the format before making the thread.
The problem with a sticky thread is, only the admins can edit the posts. I guess it could be part of the judges' job to put up the adventures once they're approved, but that's one more thing they have to worry about.
For a wiki page, there's the problem of making sure people read it: the wiki's kind of slow and cumbersome to access. (BTW, there's a list of ongoing and completed adventures at L4W:Adventure Index, but it only includes adventures that have actually started.)
I'm also wondering what to do if somebody proposes an adventure, doesn't get to run it for a while, and loses interest. How do we know everything on the list is still current?

I agree that the judges don't need more to do, but from what I understand...and I don't run any adventures here, so I know I could very easily be wrong...they have to approve the adventures anyway. So, realistically, you need to have a judge put the adventure up on the sticky when he starts reviewing it for approval and move it to approved when the adventure has been approved. The judge who ends up judging the game then can go in and remove it from the "approved" section when they get the chance.
Hopefully, this would only cause 2 more steps for the judges and would give DMs and players an idea of adventures that were coming. And again, the only reason I was saying to make that a sticky would be to make it easy for everyone to locate and view, including newer players.

I'd be interested level one hybrid avenger/swordmage... so striker/defender.

Ok, question. I just finished up with the Rerisen Tower, but I have a sequel adventure brewing with pretty much the same players. Do I need to submit it to the L4W Judges or can I count it as a continuation of the last adventure that happens to be in a new thread?

If you position it as a continuation of that adventure, I'd be fine with you just running it, although I'd like to see a copy of it sent to the judges for posterity.

Eithal is finally leveling in the official manner! I think this is my first level approval since, Mikara helped down that black dragon in Love Bites.
*edit* BTW: As soon as the dust settles around the Hanged Man, Eithal might be looking for more work, though her first desire is to continue with Iron Sky on his next submission.
*edit*edit*: Did any judges get this? Just saying this because gmail won't show me messages I sent to myself.
