*walks in, clears throat*

Good evening, one and all. I first ran afoul of rpgmp3 a couple years back. I can't recall what the heck I was googling at the time, but it had to be related to either D&D or WLD. Never been around folks who'd actually play in real life, and trying to do sessions over the internet is a pain in the butt. But I still love the stuff and jumped at the chance to listen.

I think it took about two weeks to get through all the audio. And then I pointed a buddy toward the site and ended up re-listening almost directly after with him. It was all great fun. And despite the fact that I got kind of lost when folks really started biting it and new ones rolled in, I had an enjoyable time. The epic dragon 'kill' was something for the ages, for instance.

That all being said, I only have one thing to say to this seemingly half-dead subforum.


*runs like crazy before anyone can pulverize him for even the suggestion*

While I can't make any claims towards Hal's intentions with the Texans (I can't imagine him wanting to pick it up again) do keep your eyes peeled for new adventurers to brave the dungeon in the future. Particularly if you're a patron. :)

Not to speak for Hal and co, it does seem that they are concentrating on the published adventures for DND 4e.

Besides, we're still waiting for them to hit the World's Largest City. ;)

I thought WLC was just a myth. Like Bigfoot or Balazaar Brand Hair Removal Cream.

I did think it never came out, though. Was under the impression that, for whatever reason, the company who released WLD had problems. Can't recall if it was financial, if WLD just didn't sell well, or what. But I could've sworn I read something about WLC's future being in jeopardy because of it. :O

Okay, I'm confused. Isn't Ptolus the World's Largest City?

Nope - AEG did release World's Largest City. I do not currently own it but it was a rather large tome.

Ptolus was the book Monte Cook released from his own campaign world. It is a really really nice book. Very indepth. I have a signed copy of that one :)

I own a copy of WLC. I think that Ptolus is much better. I browsed the tome for several days, but didn't think that there was anything particularly wonderful in there, but I wasn't A) browsing in much depth or B) browsing with a mind to playing it.

I think that the City would probably mean way more work for Hal, because in Dungeon, he had the encounters all layed out. I think City could have great potential, but I think it's best as a chop-shop type of place to lift locations from to graft them into another game.

That's just my 2 cents on reading it fairly briefly. It's still on my pile of stuff to read, but not until I finish Stephen Hawking's tome God Created the Integers

Of the three Ptolus is the best. WLC is ok but would be a pain unless you rere trying to run an all city adventure. WLD had its problems as Hal as pointed out at the conclusion of WLD with the English group. I own a copy of each and would prefer Ptolus of them. My gameing group want to see the WLD so I might be forced to run an updated version.

Continuing the resurrection... I stumbled over this, and my first thought was: "Man, that girl is Feylin all over!" I can just picture her taking her Celestial Viper for walkies on a leash.

I personally believe the original WLD is a kind of roleplaying magic that simply can't be recreated or redone. It shouldn't even be tried, because otherwise comparisons would be made unfairly to either side.

And really, World's Largest City would be fun. Too bad we can't Skype in Fin or Steve.

And that's pretty tragic really :(.
