Overview: Fantasy adventure material, some piracy, some overland battles. The protagonists aren't the nicest do-gooders in the world, so quests that assume they care about people make for fun misadventures. May answer the question, what happens when the famous lighthouse in the Freeport trilogy is not defeated?

Overview: Vol 1: In Greyhawk, an age of peace is drawing to a close. Beasts, madmen, and demons conspire to enslave nations and end free will. The realm’s hopes lie in a the hands of a group of adventurers. The deeds they accomplish and the secrets they uncover will forever change their entire world... and not always for the best.

Vol 2: The Knights of the Silver Quill have saved the realm of Greyhawk. It's a time of peace and plenty until a fortune teller sends the Knights on a quest that ends very, very badly. Only with time and a new generation can the new Knights rise and pick up where the others left off, and just in time... a war among Titans on Oerth is brewing.

Awsome ending Doc. Truly one of the best story hours on this board, probably in the top 3 IMO, and it was my favorite. You really grew as a writer as you went on. What a great job of blending the absurdities of D&D into a tale with excellent character and story development.

Knightfall

World of Kulan DM
Title: World of Kulan Story Hour
Author: Knightfall1972
Number of Threads: 2

Type: Fantasy
System: 2nd Edition D&D (main thread); secondary thread is not based on a game, but is based on the same characters.
Setting: World of Kulan (homebrewed)

Started: 29 July 2002
Status: Ongoing
Average Installment Length: Varies, most often short to medium.
Average Frequency of Installments: Quarterly (or longer); use to be more often.

Available for Download? No
Style: Narrative prose, based on campaign journal. Story is highly interpretive, and doesn't always conform to what actually occured in the game, as the campaign journal had limited details.

Overview: This thread details my 2e campaign in my homebrew campaign setting, World of Kulan. This story hour started out mainly from one character's point of view, but the story hour is beginning to evolve more into a full-blown narrative.

"Wizards, rangers, bards, and rogues. Elves, dwarves, halflings, and ogres. Wilderness adventures across the continent of Harqual and beyond. Friends and family in a fantasy world, trying to survive and deal with the machinations of Evil, both known & unknown. Revenge and the loss of loved ones."

Reader Comment: "I've only just begun to read this one, but I like it so far! I'll try to comment again once I'm more caught up in the story..." - the Jester

Special: The World of Kulan Thread

Secondary thread... Kulan: Many Beginnings, One Fate

Overview: Players in a classic CyberPunk 2020 setting watch it in fast forward as we advance the timeline almost one year per game session. Starting in the Fourth Corporate War we see the end of the war, the creation of new orbital megacorps and the end of others, the creation of the Space Elevator, and mankind's first diaspora into the solar system.

Reader Comment: None. No one likes it.

Special:
The BlackHammer CyberPunk Project (my CyberPunk 2020 fansite) has many of the alternate rules we are using in this game.
The CyberWiki is a full Wiki dedicated to this game, including character sheets, timeline, NPCs, and so on.
