Thanks Alaundo.

I appreciate it. Now that I know that the great Aluando wishes to see our work, I guess we will have to work twice as hard .

May your learning be free and unfettered

Very good idea... but it'll take at least one year to create it!
I'll think about ideas.

That's good to hear zemd. Although some of us have already started tinkering with some ideas already. I suggest you look over this scroll to see about our progress so far.

Due to their very nature they are hard to fit into a 'normal' FR campaign (as in, how do I fit "Into the Dragon's Lair" into my personal Waterdeep game), they're an expensive one-shot when you can get a whole bunch in Dungeon and IMHO the last bunch of FR modules haven't been that good. I exempt "City of the Spider Queen" as I haven't read it.

I can live with the adventures in Dungeon Magazine. And I agree, I could never put a module in any of my FR campaigns with any degree of success, I would always end up rewriting them anyway.

As far as CotSQ, I'll run it just because its so darn big and cool. :) I just have to figure out how to get my players to 10th level in my new campaign and get them to the Dalelands "for some reason."

Should be fun but its at least a year away.

WOO HOO!! Check this out!

ORGANIZEDPLAY™ AND WIZARDS OF THE COAST ANNOUNCE A NEW LINE OF LICENSED LIVING CITY OF RAVENS BLUFF™ HIGH LEVEL FORGOTTEN REALMS® adventures compatible with DUNGEONS & DRAGONS®
(8/28/2003 - Redmond, WA) OrganizedPlay, based here, announced today that it has launched a new venture to publish and distribute for commercial sale to the hobby gaming market licensed roleplaying game scenarios set in the FORGOTTEN REALMS world. OrganizedPlay has licensed the LIVING CITY OF RAVENS BLUFF, the world’s longest running and most well-developed massively multiplayer tabletop roleplaying game campaign from Wizards of the Coast. OrganizedPlay feels the time is now right to take advantage of the opportunities in the market and bring the LIVING CITY campaign to the widest possible audience.

The new adventures are based on high level scenarios created and played by RPGA® members in sanctioned events across North America. The adventures are designed for use by High Level (14th level and up) characters. The adventures will be a suitable challenge for a party of 4-6 characters averaging 18th Level. The adventures will contain instructions for creating new High Level characters and equipping them to face the challenges of the high level environment, as well as rules for how to correctly Judge the scenario and report results to OrganizedPlay for official scoring in the LIVING CITY Campaign.

The adventures will be approximately 160 pages in length, will feature 4 color cover illustrations, a mix of 2 and 4 color interior illustrations, and will be perfect bound. The scenarios will be priced at $30 MSRP and will be distributed worldwide by OrganizedPlay to consumers and qualifying retail stores.

The LIVING CITY OF RAVENS BLUFF player community features some of the best and most demanding players in the world. With the assistance of those players, OrganizedPlay has been able to fine-tune these new adventures, balancing them against the capabilities of the greatest heroes the game has to offer, and making them a challenge for even the most experienced player. The new High Level Scenario series from OrganizedPlay promises to deliver challenges of epic proportion, thoroughly tested in real-world play, which draw on the incredibly rich history of the popular FORGOTTEN REALMS world to deliver a gaming experience sure to delight players and Dungeon Masters alike!

OrganizedPlay’s LIVING CITY High Level Scenario Series will launch in the 4th quarter of 2003. OrganizedPlay plans to release a new scenario each quarter during 2004, with additional material available as web-enhanced content downloadable from its LIVING CITY web site, www.livingcity.organizedplay.com.

This is definitely exciting news . Thanks for the information Rad. Although I wonder if those of us living outside of North America will have access to these interesting products...

I think what really needs to be done by them to raise $$$ would be to actuallu put out a FR movie. Just look how well LOTR did, everyone loved it... fans or not! But I guess that idea is just an idea and is only gonna be us Fr fans wetdreams to see Drizzt on the big screen.

Okay, so I found this lying around and collecting dust and figured that for the sake of any newcomers to the Realms, this should be added: It would seem that Wizards have changed their minds re FR-modules, and in late 2005, an adventure called Sons of Gruumsh was published.

Oh, and how'd that Candlekeep-built adventure project go?

There is a rumour going around that I have found god. I think is unlikely because I have enough difficulty finding my keys, and there is empirical evidence that they exist.

i think the reason why i didnt buy the city of the spider queen adventure until recently was the fact that 3e/3.5e had just come out... it takes time for people to feel comfortable with the rules and buy and read trhough all the corebooks etc. before they can start an adventure... i wish they ahd given it more time!
