It Begins: Isle of the Earthshaker
Alas, it seems that over they years I've managed to drift farther apart from some of my friends than I'd ever realised -about half a dozen of the invitations I sent out were rejected by the post-master. It seems they no longer exist, taking with them (in some cases) the last potential link to gaming buddies of old.
Likewise, there were a good dozen folk I was unable to track down email addresses for at all. These potential recruits will have to be contacted via intermediaries. Unfortunately, this runs the risk of the players in question getting the impression that they are somehow "second-string" or "B-list" choices, which couldn't be farther from the truth.
Regardless of all this, my long (nearly two-week) hiatus from the blog is over. Look for a few updates on how recruitment is going, along with July's painting challenge summary and more campaign background posts over the next week or so. And in about a weeks time, I'll have the first actual play report from the the Isle of the Earthshaker campaign.
I can't wait.
