While I run across a number of game systems and genres, my fall back over the years has been classic fantasy. I've run campaigns in my game world for about twenty-three years now. Some of the campaigns have gotten off the ground, while others have crashed and burned. Over the years I've borrowed from a number of existing sources, settings and modules to flesh out areas. Most of the time, those sources end up pretty unrecognizable in actual play (like my borrowing of the thematic and general course of the Masks of Nyarlathotep (3rd & 4th edition) campaign for one game).

I have three continents, but there's little contact between them-- I keep them separate. I've gone back and forth, allowing some exchanges and then shutting them down, depending on my temper. The First Continent focuses on personal Will, an idea which has shifted over time and even now I've been working with yet another conception of. The Second Continent is more Material-- classic fantasy, with classic magic. The Third Continent focuses on the Divine and the mythic. Those conceptions have evolved over time.

Anyway, here's the list of those campaigns- successful and unsuccessful.

I have a companion list of other campaigns I've run outside of this game world.
