Yesterday, I brought a close-to-two-year RPG campaign I was running to a close. An interesting experience, being both the longest campaign I ever ran and the first one I ran for about 15 years. I plan to write something about the experience down the line, but for now I just want to post the portraits that Player Matt Sheret commissioned from the ever-awesome Marc “Chloe Noonan” Ellerby to commererate everything coming to its suitably messed up conclusion.
Here’s the campaign Obsidian Portal wiki, for interested parties. It was kept pretty up to date until about 20 sessions in, at which point it becomes somewhat patchy. The vast majority of the session write ups are from Dan Griliopoulos. I’ll also note that amongst the vary many inspirations for THORI in Journey Into Mystery was Squire Petal. It was also, I suspect, the only Warhammer campaign ever to be an extended riff on Naomi Klein Disaster Capitalism.
Actually bringing any large scale piece of improvised storytelling to an actual conclusion does feel like an achievement. As the players sailed off to Lustria having lost their Old World privileges, cheap fizzy wine was poured and oft-referenced Campaign anthem On A Boat dropped, we were smiling a bit too much. Very glad I spent my time doing it.
Clearly, not planning on doing it again. For a while, anyway.
