It was epic. Really. That is the only word that I can use to describe what transpired the other night (Monday) at my house between the hours of 7:30 PM and 1:00 AM. I attempted an experiment that I have always wanted to try: combine two D&D groups — whose campaigns both occur in the same world/timeline — into one epic final battle night. For a year, I have been DM’ing a campaign with some friends of mine on Monday nights. Furthermore, I have been running the “Team C” game for about six months now (the members of which got a three-week exclusive article, which begins here). Both parties exist in the same world and, recently, were even traipsing through the Pyramid of Shadows together, the module of which I used loosely and fit into my overarching story. Of course, seeing as how the Pyramid of Shadows phases in and out of time/dimensional space, they could both exist in the pyramid at the same time and not run into each other. That is, until they set things right by reviving an NPC that was supposed to be dead forever. Totally the idea of the Monday night group and one of the best RP sessions I’ve ever had. It should be noted that much of the mythology and story I’m presenting to you is not D&D canon; it is based on many variations on themes within the D&D omniverse that I have composed.
(Side note: right now, I’m playing the slow, sad music I played at the end of the night and am almost tearing up thinking about the past year…yeah, yeah I know, super sappy but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t attached to these characters and their stories…gah)
