[Time of the Tarrasque] Session blogs

Postby timemrick » Wed Jan 11, 2017 8:13 pm

At long last, my new campaign is underway! I've posted a column about the PCs and the first session to my blog:

Time of the Tarrasque #1: New Companions: In which our heroes meet and have their first taste of adventure together.

I'll be cross-posting these blogs about the campaign here, so that I can keep any discussion of them separate from my "Studded Plate" thread. That will make it easier to find all the information on the campaign here, too.

And for ease of reference, my previous Piazza posts about the setting are in this thread.

We have one more session at the end of this month before one of my players will be moving away. She recently completed her Ph.D., and landed a postdoc in another state. Her husband, who is also in the group, will be joining her when he finishes his degree at the end of this year. [They play Lucretia the monk and Jubair the rogue, respectively.]

We're a pretty close-knit group of friends, so don't want to lose either of them from the game if we can help it. So we've begun discussing how to continue the game after she leaves. That may involve her joining us remotely, or moving the whole game to an online platform. (I've had one less-than-ideal experience with the former, and no experience at all with the latter.) There are numerous pros and cons to almost every option I've thought of so far, so we'll have to see what feedback I get from the rest of the group.
