It seems like Durgis Rock would be an ideal setting, having it roll into the beginning of Crown of Shadow after the 100 year cut.

This sounds like it could be a nice way of getting players into the rules, magic, cultures prior to everything being on lock down. And there would be the added bonus of their old characters present at Durgis Rock for their new ones to interact with, let them see how things have changed because of the fall.

I like it!

I've had this idea for a long time.... 
Think in style of the Hobbit, taking a seemingly simple idea (a beer run) and give build ideas for various adventure: encounters, tests, traps-puzzles, monsters, villains, and drama encounters of both action/combat AND diplomacy/politics - all in a Dwarven slanted (meaning mostly Dwarven PCs) 1-4 level adventure!

Base idea:
young dwarves must go get the ingredient for libations for an upcoming festival as a test of their dwarfhood, their "bearding" crucible. The trick, the beer needs crafted and the ingredients need negotiated or stolen from various lords, kings, races, etc...... the festival is a coming together of the leaders of armies of Men, Elves and Dwarves who's ancestors combined forces in this celebration ceremony of a battle of years past.


My thought for integrating this "happy" adventure opening into Midnight is to have this moot happen before (or at some point during) the Shadow Fall.  The moot is a great meeting with men and elves to start the fights.  To then culminate (at the end of this 1-4th level adventure)  at the moot  and  have the shadow fall... HARD. 

Cut.  100 or whatever many years later.  And we start a new continuation campaign more "serious" like Lord of the Rings. In the classic era of the Shadow for Midnight.

I am looking to re-read the Midnight story and also look at Hammer and Shadow. 
Do you have suggestions for the timeline, timeperiod that makes sense or is cool for this? 
How about locations or info on clans, etc... or starts of adventure ideas?   
Any specific info in the various Midnight books I should look at to plant seeds for the future campaign?

I'll go take a gander, and hope the Black Mirror at the center of your post does not rip the soul from my bones.  Wink

Hehehe, thank you, and a happy new year, everyone! I am not as gone from Midnight as it might seem, though:

Looks like my next bigger game will finally be set there. - Read the thread at your own peril, though: Obviously, it's my own take on setting, and as the environment implies, I am very oldschool when it comes to my D&D, so the changes I am making to the setting are coming from there. Smiley

Aliya gave the man a few herbs as she dressed the wounds swiftly . It was not her best work but tending to a man near death was never easy, even for a legate. " Fear not, i haven?t come for your Soul. Such things can be seen as heresy! To suggest something like that. Who is this Legat you speak of? Perhaps he iwas just a power mad fool . Or even a imposter. As you can see i am healing you, so that should be indecation enough for our good intentions towards you. As for Rash´Gar he is one of our trackers and can as such can be taken as a part of my retinue . He is an elfling. I know not his origins nor it is my concern to share them. But he is not guilty of your misfortune." Aliya was polite and did not let her worry show, if a legate became a loose canon or was a mole in the order it could be bad indeed.

FWIW, I am also occasionally lurking here, still. - I long for the excellent PBPs you guys are running here, alas... All work, no play, these days, for me. Maybe, if things get more relaxed in spring, I'll come over again, and knock on some doors. Smiley
