Clever. I would probably change the true purpose from evil organization to watchdog for alien or extradimensional influences, but that's just me. Go to Comment

I was with you on the names up until MOPBUCKET. :P So the janitors are actually field agents who think they're reporting only to the CIA, but in actuality is also reporting to the true RJS, and they have no reason to suspect them, because they're already out in the open as their front. Brilliant. :D Go to Comment

I like the debrief too. A shame but we have all had campaigns where this has happened. Either we are wanting something shiny or the players fade to the point where you don't have the background of experience with the running game that would allow replacements.

Are you going to try and do maybe one more session with the players to do an interactive type overview and finish up the plots or just leave it? Go to Comment

A moment of silence for our fallen brother.

Sad to hear the game fizzled, Ted; but cudos for analysing the issues - we live and learn!

Best of luck for future endeavours, and it would be great to see some more creative content from you pop up here! Go to Comment

Its not very often you get to read a gane post mortem. Interesting lessons, and that saying no to players during character creation is hard to do. I used to do it when I could talk to my players face to face but not much if ever since then. Go to Comment

Sorry to hear Kingmakers go. But it is good to be so self-reflective on what happened. Go to Comment

I was going to do a post mortem for CRTF originally, but given how quickly my various posts relating to it stopped relative to how long it went, it never happened.

I documented much more of KM, even with the break towards the end. It deserved it. Go to Comment

Going to leave it. Everyone seems to be on the same page about lacking the oomph to get back into it. Go to Comment

It's always fascinating to dissect a campaign once it's over. Very glad you put up this post-mortem so that the rest of us could benefit from your experience. For your next campaign, I'd check out something called a "group template", popularized by the Fear the Boot podcast. It's a tool for building a cohesive group from the get-go, hopefully avoiding a lot of the issues that came up here. Go to Comment

I was afraid of something like this when you hadn't posted in a while. That really sucks to hear, but it also sounds like you didn't enjoy it that much, so maybe it's for the better then. If you start over with better players, I'd love to read about it.

As for the sub, this is very solid advice. Go to Comment

I have read these half hazardously over time and always planned to start at the beginning and work my way through them.

Just wanted to say that I love that you are sharing your campaign even though I don't comment on all of them! Go to Comment

Did you get around to attaching the character sheet or was this a casualty of the Datapocolypse?

As it stands, this is a good history, but I really don't see much of his personality, apart from being as easily turned to evil as Anakin Skywalker.

Update: I'll be adding a character sheet to this shortly and possibly fleshing it out more, but I felt I should give everyone a chance to see what I've come up with. Go to Comment

I'll probably go back to the Devil's Spit submission to elaborate there on why/how it happens. Go to Comment

I really like the idea of a kingdom linked to its king, and that a bad king would leave some kind of taint. But I don't get why Devil's Spit turns into iron when he absorbs its powers. Was it iron to begin with then, they say that in alchemy, stuff always return to their original form and what not, so is that it?

Anyways, a well written sub. Go to Comment
