Writing in a setting with so much previous material proved more difficult than would be expected. Things that would seem to fit were shot down btptb. Even a name that was intended to give the hardscrabble effect to a crusty old man was required to be altered. Dirty Barnie became Dirty Barnison as a result. The essence of the black metallic stone was changed. Some of the combat encounters were altered to add the Amnish threat and the first hints of the Fisherman storyline. I had envisioned a potential for underground exploration into the Feydark but it was not meant to be. On the bright side, many DMs gave life to this remaining skeleton in a way that made me pleased to be a part of it. Now, as an ex-admin, I can focus on what I want to do with story based adventuring outside of the constraints imposed on LFR writers. My advice regarding writing for others is to be willing to accept compromise or let those more willing to do so take that burden on. When running adventures written by others, realize that they have most likely faced changes to their work that was beyond their control. Do your best to bring life and fun to all of your adventures, especially those you write yourself. Lenny.
