An Introduction

Welcome! This is the blog that will be used to publish the adventure summaries posted by players in the Reed College summer 2009 West Marches campaign. This is a DnD 4e campaign modeled on Ben Robbins' post on his blog, ars ludi.

Essentially, each session/adventure is one parties' venture into the wilderness surrounding Fort Balasar, the edge of civilization. The posts I will be publishing here are the character's own exaggerated story told to the others in the bar, The One-Eyed Hag. There is no constant party, but instead a large pool of players that band together as they attempt to make the wilderness safe for civilization.

Each of these stories is a treasure; it not only encapsulates the adventure, but also the character's perspective. In the process of writing these, the players create a personal voice for their character, making them real. Eventually, I would hope that this blog comes to include the personal stories the characters tell, in addition to those of their exploits.

Enjoy them; I have certainly loved making them possible.
