A curiosity

I mentioned I'm starting a one-shot play by post for a GM-less group.

That got underway today and to my amusement and without any really thinking about it, it's turning into a Mikelmerck adventure.  The reality is simply that it's been lying there unloved for a few weeks and I could not resist the temptation to see how the setting works.

All that has happened is that the setting is now a small Mikelmerckian town inhabited by accent-ridden Dalesmen worried about their sheep.  The adventure to follow will proceed along more recognisable lines, because this is supposed to be a taster for new 4e players, after all.  But even so, the setting feels easy to write and fun to play with.

Some of their wandering monsters may not be what they suspect.  Time to test-drive the bestiary perhaps.


  1. are you giving them the standard taste of 4e, or the 'i'm upping all the critters levels so we can level in this game'?

    heh heh

  2. I'll see how it goes :) It would be a bit brutal to do that to people new to the game, but if they stay in for a longer haul, the gloves will come off.
