Thanks a bunch, guys.

Just wanted to share the pre-game world building and lore with you. You'll notice that I heavily edited Mission 1 of Rangers of Shadow Deep. The mission is now called Death in the Deepwood, and Scenario 1 is called Desperate Stand. I really augmented the difficulty levels for part 1. We just played through it earlier today, and...yeah. I'll let you make predictions for yourselves!














As ever, I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Wow! Very impressive. So much so that I find it difficult to articulate my level of respect for your artistic ability. Your presentation is an epic culmination of the lore crafting and brushwork you have already demonstrated to an excellent level. Now it appears you have professional level graphic design skills as well.

You have done a brilliant job of designing a gateway into a world that is compelling to play in with interesting protagonists to follow. I can see nothing to improve on. I salute you.

Is there no end to your talents ....seriously good work, from the kit bashing, painting, & photography, through to the writing and presentation.

Fantastic! Scenario sounds tough, but should be doable with the leveled up party.

Stunning! As mentioned by the other comments is there no limit to your skillsets?

Absolutely incredible. As others have said, your many talents are very impressive, and this is easily one of my favourite threads on the forum.

As for the obligatory Myth comment, as I read the excellent narration it was a particular voice in my mind (and the moody music of the games also came to mind.  :D)

Very inspiring stuff. Also, was the map made with any particular software?

Thanks very much indeed Rick. Glad you enjoyed it. Honestly doubt I'd have done this outside of lockdown, so glad that it's bringing some joy to someone! Looks like I'll have the free time to compile the next two parts of the report. Hope you enjoy the rest.

Cheers mate. A lot of it's down to lockdown-induced free time. Hope you enjoy the next few entries too. Really been enjoying your stuff of late - it's a shame there isn't an annual LAF meetup to play games!

Fantastic! Scenario sounds tough, but should be doable with the leveled up party.

Thanks mate. Yes, part 1 was...quite interesting. I'll have the next part up soon I hope :)

Stunning! As mentioned by the other comments is there no limit to your skillsets?

Thanks a lot! :)


Very cool. M

Cheers!

Great stuff! Very atmospheric.

That's the aim :) Thanks!

Ha! I'm glad you got the (pretty heavy) homage :) The map was made with Inkarnate Pro. I REALLY recommend it, the free version is perfectly good and the paid version (if you go for the yearly option) gives you everything you'll ever need (and it's being added to all the time).

Wonderful work & presentation.
Thanks for posting & cheers

Thank you!

That looks great. I never realised how well the background of Rangers of Shadowdeep fits with Myth. Perfect for substituting the rules across for a board game version. So will you have them questing all the way to fight Balor? Maybe give them Alric for the last battle?

Thanks mate. The Myth homage is pretty evident, huh :) I'm keeping it still within the Black Order world I've been working on, but the Myth inspirations will continue to be clear, I guess!

Endless awesomeness!  :-*
