Title: Dreams of Erthe
Author: Richards

Number of Threads: 1

System: D&D 3.5
Setting: A homebrew game world, with the pantheon of gods patterned after the PCs/NPCs of my previous "Wing Three" campaign

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

Overview: The five PCs are some of the few people in the world who have total recall of their dreams upon waking - and that makes them the perfect representatives of the Queen of Dreams, who needs people like them to try to combat a disease spreading across the Waking World, where people are getting trapped in their dreams. They'll be trained in dream manipulation while they sleep, and during their waking hours they'll travel the continent to try to help those who have succumbed to the dream-sickness.

Title: Dark Squad
Author: Goonalan
Number of Threads: Just the one.

Type: Fantasy with a bit of humor.
System: D&D 5e.
Setting: Faerun, the Sword Coast.

Started: 5th June 2020.
Status: Ongoing.
Average Installment Length: Medium to long, with pictures from the VTT.
Average Frequency of Installments: Weekly, we play every Tuesday evening, subject to the inequities of life.

Available for Download? No.
Style: The DM's POV as four ingrate players kick apart my plot, story, monsters, traps, et al.

Overview: This is the lockdown VTT game on Fantasy Grounds with four friends. We started off with the Sunless Citadel (and old 3e scenario from back in the day) and then on to the Forge of Fury (from the same era) and from there... well, the world's my bivalve mollusc (oyster), so I'm going to mess with them, a bit. I'll be dragging scenarios, maps and whatnot from a number of published modules/adventures, and just picking and choosing what I want to use a few weeks ahead of the sessions.

Reader Comment:

Excellent updates. I really like the idea of throwing the party's dead back at them - might have to steal that somewhen.

Stay safe and keep it coming.

Special: We're all very 'special', I myself used to take the 'special' bus to school everyday, go me.

Stay safe and well.

Cheers goonalan.

How inconvenient
Title: An Adventure in Five Acts
Author: ilgatto

Number of Threads: 1
Type: Fantasy (Early to Late Medieval Europe-ish)
System: AD&D 2E
Setting: Homebrew (The Forest, Moftah Pilastru)

Started: 4 December 2022
Status: Ongoing
Average Installment Length: Short to Long
Average Frequency of Installments: To be seen

Available for Download?: Eventually
Style: Third person narrative prose, with occasional winks to the underlying mechanics (and them some)

Overview: Attending the annual Fortnight as usual, a group of young nobillions are eagerly looking forward to woo the assembled eligible damsels when things suddenly go very, very pear-shaped indeed and they find themselves swept away in events of Forest-shaking caliber

Reader Comment: "What's with the prose? I don't like prose." (the DM)

Special: The story is based on the notes of two players made during the various sessions and tries to stick as closely as possible to what actually happened, as it happened.
Please note that the author is not a native speaker and that one cannot proofread one's own work (see 7., in the el-remmen guide). Therefore, despite diligent efforts to the contrary, the story may still contain certain mistakes and perhaps weird turns of phrase, for which he humbly begs forgiveness.
