Type: Fantasy / Dramedy (Comedy and Drama)
System: D&D 4e
Setting: Althai (Homebrew)

Started: 29 August, 2009
Status: Halted.
Average Installment Length: Medium (Read in about 5 - 10 minutes)
Average Frequency of Installments: Monthly

Available for Download? No
Style: 3rd person narrative prose, with many hints to the underlying mechanics.

Overview: This is the story of the Heroes of Althai, great warriors, scholars, artists, and other miscellaneously categorized beings who could become great legends in the world of Althai. Or be eaten by an owlbear. This follows a game of Dungeons and Dragons, 4th edition, for which the DM stole all of my ideas about Althai (I wonder who that jerk is...). It’s a comedy, and as such, the characters are well aware that they are merely characters in a game, and behave accordingly. The great part is that you only get a glimpse of the world inside the game, not what’s going on out of character, so the real world is left to be inferred. Don’t be fooled by the jokes and bad decisions, though; occasionally, I’ll pull a fast one on you and insert some heart wrenching suspense and drama. But fear not, for the jokes shall always return. I couldn’t help it if I tried.

I'm easily distracted, and have been working on other projects. If anyone still wants this to continue, though, PM me and I'll do it. I'd like to have a reason to keep it up.

Style: Session reports outlining the action, some development of interesting moments along the way. DMs perspective as events evolve with encounter deatils etc. Plenty of pictures- mostly screen shots from MapTools of play.

Overview: The international on-line adventures of The Friday Knights, current members are Simon (playing Cathal), Jack (playing Lucan)- both UK citizens; Aksahy (playing Rock) from the USA; Zoran (playing Farkill) & Bob (playing Eruan), both from Serbia; & Christer (playing Nalfein) from Sweden.

The Knights are, or rather, were based in Fallcrest in the Nentir Vale, adventures completed to date include-

Goodman Games Sellswords of Punjar
WOTC Keep on the Shadowfell
Goodman Games Scions of Punjar
WOTC Thunderspire Labyrinth
Dungeon Mag The Forgotten Forge
Goodman Games Thrones of Punjar
WOTC Pyramid of Shadows

However I haven't caught up as of yet with the Story Hour, our intention is to play through all of the WOTC scenarios and some others- note I have changed much of the plot to take into account the campaign arc.

Initially the Story Hour starts as a full narrative and then changes to a shorter report style, this due to time constraints- why not have a look for yourself.

Thread starts here-
http://www.enworld.org/forum/story-hour/253572-friday-knights-thunderspire-labyrinth-pics.html

Change to report style write up starts here-
http://www.enworld.org/forum/story-hour/253572-friday-knights-thunderspire-labyrinth-pics-3.html

About halfway down the page.

Sometimes the pictures re-size thermselves and the thread is difficult to read, it seems to do this at random, if this is the case then go to- Thread Tools and 'Show Printable Version', and all you have to do is click on the links for the images.

Reader Comment:

I'm still here and just caught up. I'm a bit sad to see you go to the shorter format - not that I haven't enjoyed the later posts, far from it, but just because it's only been two-thirds of a page of fun, rather than about ten!

Don't get me wrong, I fully appreciate your selfish desire to hold down a job, have a life and actually spend time preparing and running the game, rather than spending all your time chained to a keyboard, nourished by nothing but PG Tips and Tunnocks caramel wafers, as you churn out page after page of perfectly formed prose for your barely appreciative and non-fee-paying public ...

Ahem ... where was I ... oh yeah - keep up the good work, and I'm glad you're having fun again DMing.

Cheers Goonalan

Overview for KOTS: A turn by turn review of all the action as a bunch of neophyte (1st level and mostly noobs) do battle with H1 The Keep on the Shadowfell. Complete with all manner of stat based info- basically who did what to whom, and how did it worked out on a turn by turn basis. Just go and have a look why don'tcha- it'd be a lot quicker.

Now continued as the same adventurers press on into H2 Thunderspire Labyrinth, the statistics obviously also continue- oh and the PCs have now got a name, the group are calling themselves 'Hard Core'.
