I am starting a grimm mini-campaign. I have campaign journal here:

If you have run a grimm campaign, please share as I will be more than happy to hear some ideas, as I don't really know where I'm going with this yet.

I said the same on FFg boards, but thanks for posting this, we don't really see much of grimm sicne the site changed and also lost what we had there, your campaign journal is at least a showcase to us on how people may use grimm. I still plan to have a friend runa  game, it fits well enough with his ggming style. Wink

Hey, I just realized this had passed me by without me noticing.

I don't play Grimm, but I skimmed your blog. Looks like you have a great game going on. I love how these small, relatively restricted settings can create such great stories. One day, I'll play Grimm. Something inspired by it, at least. Bunch of kids in an evil dreamworld. Should be all sorts of fun and cool.

I'll probably do it non-d20, too.

Anyway, thanks for the inspiration, and see if you can't nudge one or two of your players on here. Maybe they can give us the "victim's view" of the game.

Sadly, i couldn't play in the Grimm campaign Eric ran as I was otherwise occupied in Vietnam and Laos at that particular moment in time... Wink

As he tells it, they had a great time but the wind "blew out of their sails" after the third or fourth session mainly because they were all hyped about the starting of the Ptolus campaign he is running now, which started about a week after i returned...\

...speaking of which (scuttles over to the Ptolus thread)

That's partially acurate. The Ptolus campaign was part of the reason we got winded up. The main reason is that we felt that the rules break down a little at levels 5-6, and the episodic nature of the campaign. We had fun for 4 sessions, but then it became less enjoyable for the last couple of sessions. We did finish the campaign, however. The fifth session had the PCs visit a small hamlet which had someone killing children. It turned out to be Pinnocchio. The PCs ignored my hints (a blind cat and a lame fox were obvious giveaways, I thought). On the six session the PCs had a rundown with some pirates and with Peter Pan, who had a lab for distillign magic powder from enslaved fairies. Then they found Babylon, but all of them except from one kid decided to stay in Grimm.

Anyway, thanks for the inspiration, and see if you can't nudge one or two of your players on here. Maybe they can give us the "victim's view" of the game.

I'm glad you found this journal inspirational. The reason I created it in the first place was that  when I decided to run a Grimm campaign I was looking for something like that to get inspiration from. As I was very disappointed to not find any such campaign journal I decided to do a service to the community and create one. If you do run Grimm be careful of handling the imagination rules right, and watch out for over powerful class abilities at the higher levels.
