I did have an alternate ending to the campaign that was going to be posted in-game as part of the Epilogue. It would have immediately followed what was posted.

I have posted the alternate ending in its own thread. As I said, I wanted to leave the campaign on an upbeat note. ... But that may never mean the universe is safe. *grins*

In the (probably never gonna happen) epic campaign, I already have ideas for what will be happening around Tren.   Wink

Congratulations on the completion of Shadow War! If and when it comes out in novel form, I will most certainly pick it up!

Thanks, Eothr!

sab has tried to convince me to write a Shadow War novel. But right now I don't think I have it in me to rewrite everything we just went through.

If the novel is ever about to hit bookshelves nationwide, though, I will make sure you get a signed copy.   Smiley

I was rereading some Shadow War. This post, and the two following it, during the Heart-Of-Gods battle...LOL.

Gotta love Bedlor.

That grid is fantastic.

... If it could do an easier Area of Effect it would be awesome.  Wink

It all started out in West Wellington
every here will say its a hell of a town
Bedlor, a dwarf, and Faerun, a gnome
hooked up there because they left their homes
A fighter named Liv had a similar story
Leaving her home looking for glory

We hung for bit, you know that old bag
a minotaur attacked, that shits always a drag
But that was just a trick, the bank job was the thing
That's where they met the gnomey monk named T'Ning

They fixed all that shit, the minotaur was cool
He fixed armor, painted pictures and liked to drool
So that was the group the games start
But it was just the beginning of getting to the heart
of, a-knight-with-sword-that-could-talk-and-shit
-he-locked-up-his-family-cause-he-was-a-frieghtened-bitch
His name was Carrigan; his son suicidal
But that ain't nothin' let me tell 'bout his other child
Hot, steamy, a bit young for me, but looks like on fire
Yeah...she been like that for years: CHICK WAS A VAMPIRE!!

But vamps are cool, werewolves too
Just ask T'Ning, but not at the full moon
Anyways, we guarded Carrigan's house, they were looking for a lantern
that could collect souls for some secret sects master (Maldomkin)
With those souls he could get out of hell
bring power to his people who weren't doing so well

You see the gods-were-fighting-between-each-other-and-such
well not really but-the-world-only-thought-as-much
The story went with a god of light, seeking might, turning what was wrong to right,
But in fact, it was the tact, of a wizard dressed in black
to, help that one god take the other down
once that's done; take the god of light to ground

and that's how it was with a badass nexus
ruling all the land and what comes next is...
that nexus ruling the world
happened to have a family, and a little girl
well, this-girl-was-batshit-crazy
found-out-her-dad-was-absent-and lazy

She was bent on destroying the planet
so we had a problem, I'm pretty sure Nav planned it Wink
We had a nexus who was ruling the world
and another one set to kill, that was daddy's little girl
but all the people were much ignorant
it was up to out group to get-to-fixin'-it

We teleported everywhere, from near and from far, see
we group them all together, had a hell of an army
we didn't use a plane, a train, a bus, or a car, see
Faerun is a nexus too, though he's now an NPC

So, where was I, oh, yeah, we were saving things,
along the way we gained Tren Smiley but lost T'Ning Sad
We had an army, a way to fight back
but we wanted to meet more god to help the attack

we went to hell, met that god Maldomkin
he was weak and we tried to take advantage of him
but that didn't work, we thought it be sin
so we opened up portal to go back home again

But, oh shit, a magic portal and god's house don't mix
we ended up back in time and meeting a young nexus
we thought we could fix everything in one step
Tren disagreed, and did some damage to his rep

Shit went south, we changed the whole world
there was no nexus daddy, no nexus little girl
No gods in prison, no moon in the skies,
no consoling barmaids over ales as she cries,
no gnome named broomstick he's taller than I remember
there's a freaking tomato empire, now, oh, yeah, Kimbler

it wasn't a total loss, to be thrown in the bin
there are subtle changes now, LIKE BEDLOR HAS A TWIN!
And that twin is, like evil, shaved his beard, what a crock
its like an episode of that show with Captain Kirk and Mr Spock
Remember, they go to a mirror world a few times?
Well, maybe only once, but they did it in Deep Space Nine
too. Oh shit, I lost my train of thought,
It okay dude, damn, you guys have done a lot!

So right now we are trying to find a Trust
if you want to free the elder gods, that thing is a must
We think freeing them may stop the war from going on
either way, we are simply moving on
to, West Wellington, hey, that's where we started
I know, I wrote this, dude, I'm not re...
hey, let's not go there, have you seen you character speak?
At least my character doesn't drive us up shit's creek

Lets not take it personally
we all got personality
Like T'Ning taking leaps from the tops of trees
or Tren throwing dagger, stinging fools like a swarm of bees
or Liv glowing bright she makes folks feel like they smoking trees
I got a figure Webmetz would dig this if he was still reading these

So, right now we got a castle that floats in the clouds
We try to lay-low cause that would prolly draw crowds
Some angels attacked, with elves in the bush
Time to turn some Sacha lovers faces to mush

This is quite brief, believe it or not
You missed a bunch, like a tourney, a ghost, a library, some knots
meeting some gods, an underground temple,
we made moving buildings look like it was simple
hate, love, envy, crime
as much as we tried, we never really could find any downtime
grapple rules, feats, skills, and "should I really see those dice rolls?"
talking hammers, talking swords, talking smack, and talking to dirt moles (he was a badger)
there was that vampire that tried to bite you
and that mothman thing that made me fight you
there was riding horses, ninja stars, and shopping at stores
carrying around caltrops, garlic, and, yes, even tavern doors
ales, smokepipes, singing with the bandy
paints, animals slings, and yummy peach candy
We dealt with dangers, magics even a hex
We had good times, bad times, even a bit of sex.

But right now, there's really no way to catch up completely
We had a plan to put everything all nice and neatly
but that never took off, not pointing fingers, just saying
Honestly, can't blame you; we've been too busy playing Smiley

23 minutes; with getting snack for the kids Wink

What a fun time this game was!

Your single post makes me want to cry. This was the best game ever.

No matter how it may have gotten derailed, no matter the players we gained and lost, no matter what...

I will never forget this game, nor the people I have met along the way who made not only it, but my time on this forum, so wonderful. Thank you all.

It also would be three years today since the start of Shadow War.

Happy Anniversary, guys.
