    I love your 5e campaign write ups! They’re the only thing like it on the web. I’ve only played a few sessions of 5e and I’m hungry to read about more. You put so much effort into the images, minis, staging and story- not to mention the custom encounters- that the just the synopsis is engaging and exciting. I would love to see a real game! Thanks for putting these documented sessions online.

    Thanks! I’ve been doing this for years now, it is very fun to look back later, MUCH later, and relive what happened in full color detail.

    I think the summary synopsis at the beginning of each recap really gets my players and any readers back into the plot groove.
