Of course, this just means that they're rushing headlong at the Big Bad waiting at the end, mwuuuhahahhaa. ;)
A while back I posted my thoughts about what I might do next after the
Right now, of all the ideas, the "not quite Middle-earth" game is the one I'm most leaning towards, although I'm sure I'll do a lot of vacillating between now and then. I even went as far as to consider giving 4E a try, until I got another look at the 4E PHB and remembered what crap it was. -.- Not that there isn't probably a salvageable game under all those neon lights and annoying noises, but given the amount of nuisance it would be to retool it into something I could stomach, I might as well stick with something that's closer.
So right now, I'm leaning towards something very close to my S&S Saga system, with some slightly tweaked classes and different magic. Races would be human, elf, dwarf, halfling, with classes being burglar, captain, warrior, loremaster, and ranger.
But, that's still a ways away. We've got probably at least two more sessions of Red Hand of Doom, followed by at least one session of Star Wars and hopefully a good, solid Uncanny Midnight Tales adventure between now and then, not counting what anybody else may run.
