Happy birthday, Devin!
I hope you have (had?) a great day!
I am actually playing Curse of Strahd also right now (or a version of it).
How is your Shadowrun campaign proceeding? (What happened so far?)
Thank you, Stephan! I've had a very pleasant birthday weekend thus far, celebrating the last year of my 40s with some delicious BBQ ribs.

I hope you've been enjoying Curse of Strahd! We've just recently finished the first chapter, "Death House," and I've found the gothic horror atmosphere of the game to be a pleasant change of pace from the usual D&D campaign. My character is a Chaotic Neutral necromancer, the first of this kind of character I've ever played, and I find I'm enjoying being morally ambiguous in such a setting.

My Shadowrun campaign has had a very slow start as we've all been trying to learn the rules while I also juggle my regular weekly Greyhawk campaign. I've run one of Shadowrun's older introduction adventures, "Food Fight," set in a Stuffer Shack convenience store. While I had a lot of fun putting it together and running it, there is so much to learn and become accustomed to mechanically. Fortunately, we're taking a break from it since our Curse of Strahd DM is available to continue his campaign. I'll need the time before the next available SR session to finish grokking the rules set!

That said, we did a session of Decuma first and managed to come up with a ton of useful information about the PCs and their local community, which I can't wait to use for adventure fodder in future sessions!

That sounds great, Devin! I only had BBQ ribs once when I was staying near Chicago. My only trip to the US.

How long did it take you to complete the house? We had 9 sessions for the house. 3 players. Each session about 2-3 hours.

I know the Food Fight adventure. Which of them did you take? 6th Edition?

Hi all!

My name is Og (short for Old Goat) and I live in New Hampshire, US (possibly near where the New Hampshire Darkmagics hail from). I have been playing DnD for a few years, like from '78 to present. DMing since '81. OGL, Basic, AD&D, BECMI Basic, and the start of 2E before life, family, and career took most of free time away. Started back into DnD with 5e about 4 years ago now. Sadly, confined to being a DM. I currently run three weeky campaigns using Wildemount/Exandria as the setting (Yeah, children grown and more free time now). All home brewed campaigns with adventures stemming from older DnD editions (stripped and grossly modified) mixed in with many of my own creations. I have yet to touch the starting adventures which came with the setting. I must be doing something right, since two of those campaigns are well over a year and a half running. The third has just finished session 6 last week.

Looking forward to possibly contributing, but mostly learning -- as that never ceases!

Herzlichen Glückwunsch, @BenS! You‘ve been quite busy lately, I believe.
How did your seven inspired campaign go?
