Hi all-

Though it's not as active as it once was, I still enjoy this community. As such, I'd like to take the chance to contribute and hopefully inspire. I've just started working on writing up my ongoing Midnight campaign I've named "The Men of Mjarn". It's broken up into a couple sagas, with the second still going full force.

One of my players has an active RPG blog (much of it about Vampire), but he's allowed me to guest post there about our campaign. Rather than repost everything here, I hope it's ok that I point you there:  http://www.chimericalrealm.com/

As of this forum post, the only thing that's there is a short post about the characters that my players have made. I will soon have session by session posts of the current saga, though we've been playing a while, so we need to play catch up first. I would love it if y'all take the chance to read, ask questions, and provide feedback. Also, I'd be honored if anything from our games inspires your own. If it does, please do tell me about it.

Thanks for taking the time!

New post on the topic, I've written up the entire first Saga, called the Trader (Traitor) Saga, which was played over the course of about a year. The player whose blog it is even provided his own commentary at the end.

So you don't have to search the blog to find it, here's a direct link to the post:  http://www.chimericalrealm.com/2017/10/midnight-men-of-mjarn-trader-traitor.html

Now that the previous Saga is posted, I'll soon be posting the session by session write-ups of the current one: The Corruption Saga.

Thanks again!

At the end of the Trader (Traitor) Saga, the players met with defeat. How could we possibly come back from that?

Thank you so much, TwiceBorn! I really appreciate the kind words and will relay them to my players as well. I'm finishing the write-up for the second session now, hopefully you (and anyone else that's reading) enjoy where it goes from here.  Smiley

Now that they've got a hobgoblin army... what will they do with it?

Trying to keep up this rapid pace so we can catch up to the sessions that are happening now, Corruption Saga, Session 3 is now up!

Where is this so-called rebellion?

Corruption Saga, Session 4 is posted!

In this session, not only do I recap the battle itself, but also the homebrewed mechanics I came up with to adjudicate it. If you have any questions, or want more specifics of the system, feel free to ask!  Thanks!

Session 5 of the Corruption Saga is now posted for your enjoyment!

At this point, you'll start to understand why the saga has this name.

Session 8a of the Corruption Saga is now posted!

For this session and the next three to be posted, I took on the inadvisable task of running a solo adventure for each of my players. It did help them, and me, to understand their characters a bit better, so it was definitely a positive experience. It was also a lot of work though!

Anyway, here's more on the grandpa of the group, Boldulf!

Session 8b is now posted!

This session focuses on the rogue, one of the original characters in the Men of Mjarn campaign, and the de facto leader of the group:

This session focuses on Eirik, the tank and, really, the heart of the group.

Session 8d is ready for your reading pleasure!

This is the last of the solo sessions. This one focuses on Ygvard, the Channeler, who's having what could only be described as a crisis of faith.

Session 9 has been posted!

This session describes how the Men of Mjarn spend a very important part of any game, in my opinion. Downtime!

Session 10 is now available!

After the Winter (downtime), the players have a case of cabin-fever and are looking to strike out and amass some wealth...

Strange, the links are being unusually difficult recently. Perhaps it's due to the Mercury Retrograde?

What difficulties are you experiencing? I just tried and it went right to the page.

Hmm, earlier no matter what browser I was trying to use, a message kept popping up that said the link no longer existed. I even went so far as to type in the specific page on Google search, which it actually showed as existing but even when I clicked on that it still said the link no longer existed.

Whatever trouble I was experiencing seems to have gone away now though.

Awesome. Maybe the Blogger domain was having some downtime or issues. Either way, I'm glad it's cleared up, and really appreciate you reading.  Smiley

What trials and tribulations now await our PCs after having barely escaped the swirling depths of The Maw?

Letting the good times roll, here's Session 12!

In this update, the PCs take an even darker turn than before without even realizing it (in character, at least)...
