As mentioned in session 19 my vote is for Masks of Nyrlathotep. I successfully ran this campaign from beginning to end about 7 years ago and would love to hear how you guys handle it

My vote goes for the Masks of Nyarlathotep as well. It has a good mix of pulpy action and horror. You're going to have to change some of the really deadly and unfair encounters. The Kenya chapter comes to mind.

I'm sure Paul can give you advice in that regard. Him being master of all things Cthulhoid.

Is Hal running all the games in the future? I'm not dissatisfied, I'm just wondering if we'll see any of the other player get behind the shield.

For example, the Paranoia was quite amusing. Oh and did anyone surreptitiously tape Lindsey's foray into GMhood?

Masks of Nyarlathotep would be excellent for the next Big One. Also offers a bit more range than the current corridors of doom! (No stairs spotted yet!) :D

We had great fun in Kenya. I took great delight in having my PCs rescued by a certain grey-eyed English Nobleman and his wife Jane and in the caverns the character who summoned the giant lizard got stepped on by it in the following round.

I'd really like for rpgmp3 to stay in the D&D realm, but do something outdoors with something approaching a plotline, or at least a plotline that the characters can't ignore completley. I'm not sure if I'd listen inf you switched to vampire or something like that, but I'd wait for rpgmp3 to return to its roots.

I'm happy with pretty much any genre/system as long as it's not World of "teenage angst" Darkness.

I would love to see the shackled city run. It seems cool from the bit I've heard of it.

I've seen Shackled City on the FLGS shelves and it looks very nice indeed. :) Very well produced, lots of colour maps.

At the moment I'm acquiring the new Dungeon magazine adventure path: Age of Worms which also looks pretty good so far.

Yes, yes it is. I'd love to hear your group do that adventure path. :) I'm walking one of my groups through that path right now when we're not doing WLD.

There is the suggestion that the party - the original one - knew each other prior to the introduction of World's Largest Dungeon. The first level character sheets are sure to be on file somewhere - why not have a quick one-off adventure PRIOR to the World's Largest Dungeon, a quick fun first level city romp, or whatnot.

I think that was an in-reference that I should have gotten, but being completely foolish - I think I missed it. :P

As it happens...

Myself, DrNick and several other people are currently playing through this game (run by Mr Colin) :D It's good, plot driven and everything. It's nice having a base city of operations...you get to know lots of people. It's all very colourful, and the books nice and shiny too :D

Either I'm not as dedicated a role player as you guys are or I've been out of it for too long, I don't recognize many of the games and modules you are listing.
