  1. Outstanding. It shows just how much creativity there is out there and how all it takes is a willing organiser to harness it. Thanks for being that person. As for the compilation, that's a lot of work too, and very much appreciated.

  2. Definitely - thanks for putting this list together - it's a lot to read, and this gives a handy place for linking back and catching up on the reading. I'm not getting to 25 in the next few days, but I have adventures 18-20 sketched out.

  3. #24 under Mithril was accidentally tagged for the challenge. However, it isn't actually one of the adventures even though I applied the RSG template...

  4. Thanks for making the compilation! It's just amazing how much creative juice is flowing; I'll have to do a lot of reading in October once this challenge is over.
    Kudos to those reaching the end of the challenge, and to those who even tried. I'm closing in on 25 myself; I don't know if I'm going to make it, but I'm giving it a last push. See you all at the finish line...Tally ho!

  5. Folks, I'm updating the list. Thanks for correction, Mark. If any other corrections need to be made, let me know!

  6. Updated as of Sept 29th. I also did an image for "Adventures Listed by Blog" and another for the by system list (which I will post later).

  7. Great stuff guys! I haven't been able to comment on everyone's stuff but I've been reading it!

  8. I just finished my final entry for this event. I will probably spend the next month catching up on what everyone else wrote. It was definitely a lot of fun doing.

  9. Just an FYI, /Matt, about half of the links you posted for Mithril and Mages have errors. For some reason, they seem to have picked up excess characters - %A0%A0

    No big deal. I haven't seen the issue with any other entries that I came back to read. Just an FYI.

  10. Hah just found this, I will be finishing up my Adventures Dark and Depp series and I have my X-ploers introduction posted.


  11. Linking this to a new wiki:


    If that's ok? If not, I shall remove the link.


  12. Sorry about the lack of updates on this. I removed the %A0%A0 from the Mithril and Mages pages - in both the by systems and by blog listings.

    Sorry again about the delay.
