Boromir battle

Campaign Finished!

Last night, we completed Red Hand of Doom in suitably epic style, with the heroes facing the Wyrmlord, Azarr Kul, and then Collapse )

From there we had a very pleasant little denouement in which the characters briefly revisited (or at least had mentioned) the various major NPCs or friendly locations, were given heroes' welcomes and treated like stars, and all named Knights of Elsir Vale. There was then a final shot of them all gathered wearing medals, the music rose to a crescendo, and the credits ran. Figuratively speaking. ;)

All in all, Red Hand of Doom was a great adventure, and worthy of its place alongside such classics as Against the Giants or Temple of Elemental Evil. And while I added a few flourishes or made a couple of tweaks here and there, for the most part I ran it straight as written (which is something I almost never do) just because it really didn't need a lot of adjustment.

So, I'm very pleased! It's only the second campaign I've run that "finished" rather than just sort of coming to a stop (the other being Star Hero back in the '90s), and it was a fun one. :)

Next for me, a short break from GMing, then time to finish up that Star Wars scenario from last April. 0.o
