Ptolus!

Santa was good to me this year. I'm up to page 75 (out of 700), and this is indeed a gaming product beyond any other.

S'a shame I'm already about 70% of the way through the Banewarrens and that I placed it in Faerun -- though I could of course go the whole way, completely replace Tantras with Ptolus, replace the Vast with the empire described in the sourcebook, and modify Faerun such that it fits the cosmology.

But the current campaign has other plans after the Banewarrens, anyway. And it seems like the Warrens would fit well as the midpoint of a Ptolus campaign, one where you built up to it through city adventures, a few pokes into the dungeons, and other Ptolus modules, and make it part of a continuing storyline that leads to more dangerous and deep places there, and finally into the world's cosmology.

In short, if I want to run Ptolus, I should have first-level characters start in Ptolus.

Besides, as Cook himself notes in the chapter on running campaigns in Ptolus, the most obvious thing to do is to rip off Brust and run a Jhereg-like organization on the Ptolus streets. I'd need players interested in that.

Maybe I could revisit the idea of running something on Wednesdays or Thursdays again. Or occasional weekends. Though the gamers we've seduced into occasional runs to Roseville are already probably coming out here as much as they could stand to. And most other gamers I know in the bay area are either insanely busy with their own kids or eschew d20.

Maybe I could find shiny new gamers out here - though, really, when would I find the time?

arrgh. Not enough hours in a day? Not enough years in a life.
