63 posts in this topic

UPDATE!
Today I finally finished the hard design work of all pages of the pdf file! It might need a last spellcheck but for now it is ready to be published as a nice complete product of the effords of all my helpers and countless hours of work! Behold, here we go (whopping 69mb full of descent 2.ed.)!

Update:
I finalized a PDF file with all the custom content of the Supply Threat:
The Silken Threads Supply

I created also an Artscow Album, but be aware on legal issues with FFG!
Artscow - The Silken Threads




At this forum isn't yet a homebrew section, but still, I wanted to share my work in progress!

I making a new campaign for the basic game including the conversion kit monsters.

The Silken Threads!

Background Story:
Last Night at the local tavern of Forge you had a blast of a drinking party! That party escalated in a great brawl, that made the innkeeper throw you out of the location. Drunken you slept in the haystacks with three other booze buddies. The very next morning a heavy hangover wished you a good morning! You and your buddies ordered some food and water for breakfast and as you eat you listened to the crowd around you. Whispers about Rumors of the Southeast you heard - The City of Vynelvale lays in danger you heard. In its surrounding mountains dozen of Spiders and other Monsters poured out of caverns into the plains and roads around the city. Traveling isn't save anymore there!
You look at your booze buddies and realize that they are no ordinary townsfolk. They look more like adventures who could need some coins. So you shout out: "Hey fellas - this calls for business! Lets Ride Southeast to Vynelvale and gather some bounty! How that sounds?"
And so you are riding with three companions somewhere near noon towards the far destiny…
 

Interested?

I've been casually following this thread on BGG for a little while now, and I'm really very impressed with all the work you've done so far.  I look forward to seeing it completed (and hopefully uploaded in a single easy-to-download package. =P)

Good show!

Thanks!

As soon the Finales are posted and Questtexted, I intend to do a Pdf File or something similar to create a Questbooklet. I am not too good with PDF filing but maybe I can get some template/help from Adam Sadler.


Any Ideas, Suggestions, Spellchecking etc. is welcome.
I host also already 2 Pbf Campaigns to playtest further the campaign. More people requested to test it, so I might start another PBF campaign soon. So if you are interested, join in!

 Really awesome work!

What are you using to create the maps? Is it something I can download? (I'm creating something that might work out really cool for my players as well but I am so far from completion and anything that would speed up the process would be awesome!).

I'm not sure what he's using, but Tile System is a favourite of mine.  I haven't seen a D2E tile set for it yet, but it's easy enough to make your own if you can't find one.

Any link for that?

Here's a link to Tile System version 3.0.4.

http://bedgell.com/shawn/kneedeep/tilesystem.htm

I have a copy of 3.0.6 which I can share directly if you prefer, but I couldn't find an active link to that version online. (I don't remember what's been changed since 3.0.4.) 3.0.6 is the most recent version of the program I'm aware of, and has been for several years now. =P

I've seen tile sets for Doom, Descent 1E (not including SoB, not that there were many tiles in that one anyway), Space Hulk (new and old) and TI3.  I'm planning to make a tile set for Descent 2E if I don't see one from someone else in the not too distant future.

Friend request sent.  Anyone else who wants it, please just send me a friend request directly.  I don't want to hijack Morthai's awesome homebrew campaign thread just to distribute a freeware mapping tool that's been out there for years now. =P

Speaking of which, has there been any new progress on the campaign, Morthai?

I've seen you running more than a few PBEM games over on BGG.  How's the playtesting going?

Playtesting mostly happens at my hometable - the PBF moddings I do due to public demand, to catch errors and to provide further playtesting.

Speaking of progess, an hour ago I finished the final maps and their texts! So the complete campaign is available now!

I am working now on createing cards for the lieutenants, relics and new items, heroes, classes and overlord cards I intend to add in. If someone is expierienced with it, I could provide all raw data and input and would add your credits to the campaign.

@Morthai fantastic work you are doing. Keep it up and I do hope you will not stop just on this campaign :)

Also if you would link/show/wrote a tutorial on how to make your own cards it would be nice.

All the Best, Anchorr

I'm currently play testing this campaign (#3, he's currently running 4 of them) with Morthai and so far the intro quest is really well thought out. As far as I'm aware, hero wins for the intro quest are 1 out of 3 with the 4th campaign unknown to me at the moment. Morthai is doing quite an excellent job here.

Morthai …

I have read through this entire thread, as well as have visited BGG and referenced similar threads.  I really like what you have done with this quest.  Quite frankly, I am not a creative individual … my mind simply doesn't work that way.

I am curious about one thing.  I have seen references to various vassal files, rar files, etc.  Have you considered, or have you already created a PDF of this entire quest?

That is the thing I was looking for most.  I did not see anything within the files section on BGG, nor within the actual thread.  Is this something you are going to do?

Also, after actually re-reading the threads and comparing the dates of individual entries, it appears like you may not yet be completed within everything.  If I am reading this correctly, you are actively working on ACT II encounters, or am I wrong?

Any information you would care to provide would be appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

Act II encounter as well the finals are done and i am working on the additional supply (items, heroes, relics, lieutenants, monsters, skillcards, etc.)
as soon i finished that, I will create a PDF file consisting of all quests and additional stuff. I just wait for the Templates for the PDF files from Adam Sadler.


thanks for your interest. As soon the PDF is ready I will post it here as well.

Thank you very much for the update.  My friends and I eagerly await the PDF.  Figure it will get done way before I ever see FFG's Wyrm expansion.  Heh.
