    I'm working on a series of modules for the D&D room that will, once again, pair me with one of the old time greats. This particular storyteller has been very busy recently, so I'm not sure that we're prepared to make a formal announcement just yet. But I predict a great deal of awesomeness.

    As registration draws nigh, I've been musing on what I should run next year. Right now, I'm considering the following:

    A new "Classic" Empire of the Petal Throne scenario.
    An EPT game set in the post-apocalyptic Latter Times.
    A scenario set in my Lovecraftian Swords & Sorcery setting, Mu using a S&W variant.
    A new Delta Green Scenario.

    Whatever I decide to do at GC will get its initial shake-down run at Gamehole Con. With that con drawing near, I better make up my mind soon.

    Planning to submit the following Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea (AS&SH) games:

    Schedule
    Thurs 2PM-6PM - Death in Every Shadow

    Fri 2PM-6PM - Death in Every Shadow

    Sat 9AM-1PM - Crash at Corpse Creek
    Sat 2PM-6PM - The Strange Tale of Crystal Point
    Sat 8PM-whenever - Foolsgrave

    Descriptions
    Crash at Corpse Creek. A strange object has fallen from the stars, crashing into the cold, haunted swamp of Corpse Creek. Several curious trappers from a nearby camp went to investigate, but none have returned. The remainder have hired your group to find their friends, but they warn you that Corpse Creek teems with the living dead and that its strange bugs have awakened early from their winter freeze, including some giant varieties never seen before in Hyperborea. A site-based adventure for up to six player characters of levels 3-5.

    Death in Every Shadow. Some foul abomination has crawled out of Khromarium's ancient depths, feeding on men, women and children alike. Now it has crept into your uncle's cellar, taken him and disappeared back into the darkness below! Desperate to save your last living relative, or at least preserve your claim on his wealth, you enter the dank undercity, where death lurks in every shadow. A site-based adventure for up to six player characters of levels 1-3.

    Foolsgrave. Khromarium's mysterious spiraling towers of black gneiss predate mankind, an ever-present reminder of how strange and alien things once ruled Hyperborea. During the Festival of Plutonia, a sombre commemoration of death, darkness and the all-consuming void, one such tower's impenetrable doors slowly creaked open, admitting anyone brave enough to descend into its depths. Many have entered, but few have returned - some with wealth overflowing, others simply mad, drooling and babbling. Locals now refer to the labyrinth as Foolsgrave. A living megadungeon crawl for up to eight player characters of levels 1-3.

    The Strange Tale of Crystal Point. In the far reaches of Hyperborea's Crab Archipelago, lies a small, mountainous island known as Crystal Point. Passing sailors have recently seen a crimson glow in Crystal Point's waters, beams of reddish-brown light shining up from its steep cliffs and frequent lightning storms overhead. One famous sage believes Crystal Point may hold the ruins of a lost Atlantean colony - and its secrets! Eager for adventure and treasure, you agreed to explore the island and, after a long journey, have finally set foot on its rocky beach. A site-based adventure for up to six player characters of levels 7-9.

    Here's what I'll be running (times TBD)

    Thursday: Castle Amber (AD&D).
    Friday: Pack of Orcs Now. This years AD&D 'Orc' themed game is a play on the classic war movie 'Apocalypse Now'.
    Saturday: Caverns of Thracia (AD&D). I've run Tegel Manor for the last two years and I'd like to change things up a little with a different Judges Guild module.
    Sunday: Squad Leader - 2 different sessions at the same time, one being the Classic Guards Counterattack scenario and one a little more advanced for those who are already familiar with the system. This Sunday morning game seems to be well received the past 2 years, so I'm putting this as a fixture for the games I run each year.

    I'm also toying with running 'Descent into Krimmea' for Astonishing Swordsmen and Sorcerers of Hyperborea. It's a non-linear underground dungeon/city crawl for characters around levels 3-5.

    Interesting! Is this adventure something you would write or have written yourself?

    I'm actually in the process of writing it now. I've been meaning to put something out for it on the Northwind boards.;)

    Squad Leader sounds good! I tried to run two (Stalingrad and The Road To Wiltz) at GC8...unfortunately, despite being fully booked, NOBODY could be bothered to show up.

    There was a lot of that going around GC8, but not so much last year with the new system.

    Unfortunately, I wound up wasting about three hours setting up (plus the six hours booked) for nothing. I am considering running SL or Tobruk, but the thought of a repeat concerns me.

    I've been keeping mine to just Guards Counterattack so it's a simple learning scenario for those who've never played or haven't done so in years. This year I'm going to add a bit more advanced scenario into the mix for a few guys who've taken the game up.
