Day 19 – Favourite Published Adventure
Whilst we do use pre-published adventures on occasion most of the scenarios we play tend to me more homebrewed or ad-libbed.
There are some published adventures that certainly stick in my mind though… “I6: Ravenloft” which I’ve played three or four times and not only for Advanced Dungeons & Dragons which it was published for but also as a Marvel Super Heroes adventure (the party still failed), the fantastic “Enemy Within” campaign for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay and the “Witchfire Trilogy” by Privateer Press set in the Iron Kingdoms for d20.
I think my favourite, however, is Chaosium’s “Masks of Nyarlathotep” for Call of Cthulhu which we played over the course of one summer whilst our GM (Monty) was home from Uni. It was a fantastic, globe spanning, campaign that took us across four continents and I’m not quite sure how many characters. I know my character was the only one who survived the entire thing – but that was partially because he was moored offshore on a yacht during the final climax as he’d broken both his legs in Shanghai in a car crash. I ended up having to play a different character for the final session (or two).
