A long time ago I was asked to run D&D for some friends. Many years later, I still haven’t finished. I’m not even close. Ok, I lied ever so slightly. The first arc of the Twelve Signs campaign completed late last year, clocking in just under 4 years of runtime.

We chatted about what to play, I’d recently started getting into FATE and wanted to try that, but people generally wanted something a little more crunchy. I’m pretty sick of 3e so I vetoed that, and we ended up landing on Savage Worlds.…more
