Operation: Pandora's Box

Paralells

Our new companions again remind me of the cyclic nature of life and how the same stories seem to be retold. In this instance our friends seem to be in a parallel story to my own; escaping their captors and traversing a harsh environment to seek freedom from their persecutors. I wonder for them if it will be worse. I’ve managed to escape and in some ways my tormentors are separate from this reality. My scars are real to me, but are hidden from most. For them the scars and stigma will be theirs for the rest of their lives. This is their hedge and we can guide them out…

You can't go home again

(As Peter drifts to sleep he immediately enters lucid dreaming and finds himself in a remote tower, surrounded towers of books, American cigarrettes, and comfortable furniture. Peter draws up an
empty journal with a thought and proceeds to reflect)

Only having recently picked up the novel by Mr. Wolfe I couldn’t help but draw connections to the title on my melancholy visit ‘home’. England, and London, have changed. Granted, London has never been the same without my parents. After my initial return to London I soon found a changed landscape, not simply referring to my altered perspective thanks to the affect of my keeper and the trauma’s endured. Seeing London again after all these years it feels more foreign and alien to me than it had on my initial return. I wonder then if my situation is easier being already alienated compared to those that have to see the gradual decay of the city.

I suppose if anything London is becoming more like me or at least how I see myself. In my youth, pure, unchanged, ideal. Now different and altered. Each new bomb blast and building leveled, each new air raid shelter popping up on the ever changing landscape seems to reflect my own ability to change appearance.

I draw no comfort from this analogy…instead a sense of a deep remorse.

Welcome to your Adventure Log!
A blog for your campaign

Every campaign gets an Adventure Log, a blog for your adventures!

While the wiki is great for organizing your campaign world, it’s not the best way to chronicle your adventures. For that purpose, you need a blog!

The Adventure Log will allow you to chronologically order the happenings of your campaign. It serves as the record of what has passed. After each gaming session, come to the Adventure Log and write up what happened. In time, it will grow into a great story!

Best of all, each Adventure Log post is also a wiki page! You can link back and forth with your wiki, characters, and so forth as you wish.

One final tip: Before you jump in and try to write up the entire history for your campaign, take a deep breath. Rather than spending days writing and getting exhausted, I would suggest writing a quick “Story So Far” with only a summary. Then, get back to gaming! Grow your Adventure Log over time, rather than all at once.
