So as I said last time this blog entry will be about how I wrapped up the story arc of the Claimants War. Now remember that I used this story line to transition from 2nd to 3.5, kind of what are the old characters up to know sort of thing.
What I did was had the current group of players run little side missions and do what adventurers do best, cause havoc where ever they go. From deliver missions, to strategic personnel strikes, to one of my favorites shoot the general of their side

So with the helm placed upon the Ranger's head and the seeds of discord set in place the first strike against the crown swung into effect. It was the wedding day for the a fore mentioned paladin and before he arrived at his family's chapel he spent a day in meditative prayer. Eron grabbed his men and raided the Estate of his one time friend and raped murdered and butchered all in the place, from bridal party to guests. The barbarity of it all sent a shock wave through the kingdom.

Last time we left off I said I would talk about the Claiments War, aka the Esurdian Civil War. To do that I need to explain two factors about the war.
The first being that it started between My 2nd Ed. run fo the Campaign and ended during the 3.5 run of the Campaign. This was due to the fact I wanted to make sure the world grew and that I alays kept an eye to help the world live and breath.
The second factor was the Du Roi program the Crown sponsored. Du Rois were orphans
The title says it all. Love, lust and betrayal three ideas that seemed in one way shape or form to drive my Esurdia campaign. In the beginning it was love of country, lust for power; be it monetary or magical, and the betrayal of one family towards the crown of the land. It was a simple plan, one that worked very well, but as the game went on those three ideas changed. Just as the players changed their views on what was important to their characters.
A few characters fell in love with
So Saturday I ran my current game: Curse of the Crimson Throne, using the Pathfinder Beta rule set. The player of the priest couldn't make it as he had an emergency call to Long Island for work, thus it was me and the girls, all four of them.
Now don't get me wrong. Women and gaming are not total opposites. In fact these girls came with their A-game. They came they saw and they viciously beat down the enemies with a sadistic professionalism that would make some people balk.
