Just wanted to let you know that I enjoyed FATE OF THE VIGILANT from DCC#29.
I ran it as part of an ongoing campaign (which includes DCC#14). The characters were all third level so I had to adjust the adventure a bit. They fared quite well against the pirates and the final confrontation with Lórethel nearly spelled doom for two party members. Sadly, the discussion started in the middle of the fight by our elven sorceress with Lórethel was never finished - the elven pirate leader was slain before he could relate parts of the tragic history. The elven sorceress carries the small phial with the ashes around her neck ever since - without knowing its meaning, that is.
Fun thing is that the party "saved" Jessa and nearly fell for her guiles. They took her to shore and she nearly escaped with a horse, then was brought low by a guest player playing a female barbarian. Very very dirty girlie-infight, I can tell! As Jessa died she cursed the party. Nevertheless, they buried her properly outside of town. I have yet to decide whether this is the end of it or not.
Maybe in her deep loathing of the player characters lies the power to return from the dead to avenge her slain lover (which, I must add, the party dumped unceremoniously overboard).
I also ran OLD FEODOL'S BASEMENT, albeit with a different group. It is a very fun adventure and a nice break from the uniform "treasure haul motivation". Unfortunately we haven't finished it yet.
So, thanks for writing them and keep up the good work! I am looking VERY VERY MUCH forward to Castle Whiterock!!!
