Glad you could make the seminar!
We were only expecting X number of attendees, but over twice as many people showed up, so handouts were in short supply.

I've got a copy of the original Word document that the handout was printed from...if you like, drop me a PM with your email address and I can get it to you.

that's awesome. i'll send a pm.

btw. GREAT work on castle whiterock. the box set is amazing. its like a band of gamers got together and said to themselves, "all the other mega dungeons suck. how could we make one that rocks?"

and then after the successful rocking you guys added more. thnak you!

can you tell us how you went about doing the design for whiterock (the ultimate not-suck adventure?)

I'll PM you, because I'd like that handout as well. I didn't attend because when I was trying to sign up at Event Registration they said the event was full. It sounds like it would have been pretty cramped if I went anyway.

Maybe you can save it as a pdf and put it up on the website?

Absolutely!
I've been kinda MIA on the Adventure Design thread because Chronicle of the Fiend was monopolizing my time, but as soon as the final edits go out (this week) I'll start posting some backstage-pass love.

And thanks for the praise! Feel free to post comments (etc.) on the Castle Whiterock thread...let others know how the mega-adventure (and city, and gaz, and everything else) strikes you.

Darn you and your big-assed scary looking shield! I wasn't able to go, so I have to wait for my Whiterock Loooooooooove Box. I wanna read all about the rocking-est dungeon yet!!

(white rock--? so it's crack cocaine?)
