Well I am shelving BttDRPG. You can still download it from links previous until I decide to take it down all the way one day when I am bored. Either way no one will notice. ;)
I am still going to make Back to the Dungeon Zines/Modules/Houserules for LL/AEC though. I thoroughly enjoy putting those together and my megadungoen "The Black Stairs" and Ravenkeep have tales that MUST be told. Deep roleplay hack and slash story dungeons.
I am going to reedit V1 I1 to a 1.1 because I found numerous crap mistakes.
V1 I2 is chugging along nicely.
Here is an excerpt from I2
The University of Raven's Keep
University: There are various mage orders at odds with
each other. They will take it to the streets after dark.
There are other non university mage orders but the
University Mages believe themselves the authority over all mages. They are trying to get the authority to have a Mage
License. Professor Martinus is one famous professor who collects all kinds of monsters and artifacts.
Replenishing DEAD characters.
Remember that any room with a P in it's description may have additional NPCs or is another area for new PCs. Or it is Prisoners of low morale that can be used as cannon fodder.
Men of Bordermarch have been seen by Rangers within our borders. They are from the Western Kingdom beyond the Western Desert. The Men of the West are know for their purple clothing dyed from a hardy desert berry. Bordermarch is a fortress that guards the main East West Road that comes out of the Great Eastern Empire into their lands. They are a race of men with dark hair and tan skin and their eyes the color of metallic purple or violet. They worship a harsh god called the Provider (LN) Malsalla. These men frequently come to our lands to raid our dungeons.
