This is a continuation of Play By Forum Great Pendragon Campaign:
Part One: The Great Pendragon Campaign
Ten Thousand posts! We did it!
Firstly, thank-you all so much for playing, You have been truly excellent! A game without players is no game at all, and I know that this has placed more demand on your time than any of us thought it might, has been more hard work than we knew, has opened up introspections of all of ourselves, but most of all, I hope it has been fun and entertaining, a challenge that was worthwhile.
Secondly, I would like to thank those who are reading along – some have let me know by posting, some have Pmmed me and one person has recommended me to this thread in real life as a good read. I’m so glad this is being enjoyed by those watching too. I listen to all of your feedback, I take it with equal importance to the feedback from players. You are important to me, to us, and your imput even as a non-player is just as valuable!
Thirdly, there are people who have made this possible who possibly don’t even know of the existence of the thread. Shut up and Sit down, for starters. I don’t know how you’ve created such an excellent community, but you have, it’s a true gem of a forum, and given it’s size, I can only assume that involves an unholy amount of work from yourselves and the moderators. Thankyou!
This isn’t my first forum game, I had run a microscope game on the forums that did well, and joined a few games too, but this is a game that seems to have captured people’s imaginations. I can’t take credit for that, the man who wrote and designed the game, Greg Stafford. It is his world that has led to the longevity and it is his Great Campaign, a true masterpiece, that has held us all in suspense, made us laugh, cry, shout and sigh, and has given us an escape from a world that sometimes can feel like madness!
Slushy stuff done, I did say I was making a drawing to celebrate this moment, so here:
Only open in the event of an immunity to extreme cringe
Yes, I did mention a podcast or audiobook style presentation… here it is. The first two minutes. Let us never speak of it again.
Thankyou, and let’s raise a glass to friends no longer with us, Sir Miles who is always welcome back. Sir Gale, who I understand completely and doesn’t need to explain anything. Sir Alain, our first true loss and Sir Owain, cruelly taken amid joy. Sir Beldemence, who we all worked so hard to save, but for nothing and finally, Sir Vance, still raw, and taken too soon.
