I am the DM of a game that has stalled out, Auction House.
It was going pretty well until I had to take a few weeks off due to family issues. I tried to start it up again a few weeks ago but only got about half the players to respond.
Now that the holidays are coming and the beginning of next year promises to be busy for me at work, I think it best to just abandon the adventure.
The adventure never got a judge, so I need someone to help wrap it up and give the players their rewards.
The party was in the middle of a skill challenge that they were likely going to fail IMO, so I'm not sure how I should award XP, if any for that encounter as even though it didn't look to good for the party, it wasn't completed.
Just call it a failure, I think the other players won't mind.
