Blackmoor living world [Advanced Fighting Fantasy]
All started on the 1st of October 2017 as a quick, introductory one-off game, as a tribute to Dave Arneson for his birthday (i.e. the Dave Arneson Game Day) and an introduction to his fantasy world for those who don't know him.

However, things developed (unexpectedly!) in such a way that I decided to turn this game from a quick, introductory one-off into a full Blackmoor campaign (see below).

AFF: The ComeBack Inn, a Blackmoor campaign
In Blackmoorís long and troubled history, many would-be heroes have quested to find the power and riches long rumored buried in the harsh, cold north. Innumerable stories tell of these great adventurersí bravery, heroism and skill. Despite their best efforts, however, Blackmoor remains a troubled land. Monsters roam unchecked, terrorizing the innocent, and enemy armies advance on all borders.
More young adventurers have to become strong enough to protect their homeland.
The Kingdom of Blackmoor once again will call on its protectors to save it from complete domination. Will you be ready to answer the call? Can you find the strength to help heal the wounds of a weary land?

The future of the Kingdom is in your hands.

* * *

This is a Dave Arneson's Blackmoor campaign run with Advanced Fighting Fantasy 2e ruleset (Advanced Fighting Fantasy Quickstart Guide is freely available here: http://www.drivethrurpg.com/pr...src=hottest_filtered ).
This campaign is made of independent one-off adventures and each of them can be completed in a short timeframe (weeks rather than years as often happens). Each adventure will be managed by using a different group. There is no obligation to play all adventures in a specific order, although there may be some "restricted" adventure where only more expert adventurers are allowed or where at least some of the adventurers must have completed a previous, connected game.
Adventures will usually start with three to five characters (exceptions will be flagged accordingly). Some specific adventure may be run more than once, for different groups. Multiple adventures may be run at the same time, occasionally.

As a player, you can RTJ the general campaign and create one or more characters, then each character will be able to join one or another adventure (group) and develop, using carefully the experience points earnt while adventuring (if somehow they manage to survive, of course).
A player can normally have only one character in a specific adventure and can't play it with another character if it is run again (there may be exceptions).

All adventurers taking part to this campaign are young and good-willing, often looking forwad to become Heroes of Blckmoor like the Great Svenny. The Blackmoor campaign is in general not suitable for "pure evil" characters, although "cheeky rascals" and "black sheeps with a golden heart" can come along with no problem.
However, on some particular occasion (to be flagged) there will be the chance of playing a "baddie" in strict collaboration with the Director, in the purest Blackmoor tradition.

If you played another Blackmoor game with another GM, perhaps using another ruleset in another place (whether on line or tabletop) and you would like to hang on to your character, well, reach out to me and we will find a way to adapt your character to this campaign!
My aim here is just to celebrate Dave Arneson and his creation.

* * *

If you want to join the campaign (i.e. group 0), I will ask you only to pick a "player" name (of course, if you already decided which character name you want, you can go directly for that). You will have no other particular obligation.
However, if you want to join a specific adventure (i.e. a specific group requiring characters, see the end of this thread), you will have to create a character (with a character name) and, above all, to agree to the following two requirements:

1) At least one post a day. If you have occasional issues with this, I expect you give me a notice. I can understand that unexpected issues can sometimes happen, but if you can't keep up with this pace I will not wait for your posts and in the short term I will manage your character to avoid breaking the flow of the adventure. If over ten days pass without notice, I will remove you from the game.

2) I need your committment to participate until the end of the adveture you join. It is a single adventure and won't take years to finish, but rather weeks or months at most.
If anyway you want to drop out, don't disappear but let me know. I will appreciate it.

Please note that further groups/games may be opened depending on how the games develop and on free characters' actions.
