Hey all,

     A little background. I haven't gamed for 2 1/2 years, but I'm rejoining the fray on wednesday night. I am going to run a group through Crown of Shadow. I am pretty stoked about it, as are my players. I have a reputation of being a really good DM and I want to keep that going. This is my first journey into the world of midnight. I know the first few chapters of CoS pretty well, and I'm (basically) familiar with the world. Any advice, other things I should look at to help the game? I know this is short notice, but any help is appreciated.

Peace,
Dosey the Clown

Thanks guys. It's a lot to absorb in 2 nights, but I'll do my best. I am confident enough in my skills as a DM. I like what I've read so far of the changes to COS. I like the way it almost seems lighter at first and then WHAM!! (unless I"m interpreting it wrong). I think all my players are worried because of midnight's reputation as a "killer" game.

Any game is only as mean as the GM running it.

What Midnight really is, is a tool box for all the cheerfully sadistic GM's out there. We'd be running nasty games in any setting. Midnight just gives us a handy excuse.

"It's not me, it's the setting. Honestly."

Hehe.

I'm running a game of CoS right now.  I'm trying to put up fairly detailed posts of what happened, player reactions, etc.  Have a look if you'd like:

thank you all for your help. I have printed out Stickys' and Beedo's CoS. Should be fun. My player's won't know what hit them! I will try and post a campaign log on the site to let everyone know how it's going

Hi fellow DMs,

unfortunately, it seems that the information posted by Doomed Hero & Pheros links to dead pages, is there a way to recover your - I assume - fantastic ideas about running Crown of Shadow ?

Thx a lot in advance,

Hi Vongrauman,

Yeah, that was back in the days when we were site hopping because of some issues.  Topic numbers are the same, so just replace the "...ats.unifans..." with "...againsttheshadow.org..." as such:
http://www.againsttheshadow.org/index.php?topic=1012

Hope that helps you.  Good luck running CoS.
