Heya, folks! As most of you know, this past weekend, on October 9th, I ran the biggest Big Epic Game of my life.
If you’d like to look through the vidcast of this, here it is. Note that audio starts a 05:50, but there’s a lot of time catching up on set-up, etc.. The “official” start is at 52:11.
The Heroes of the Battle of Camondel, who I thank from the depths of my heart for their acts of courage in the game, and beyond.
Athrate Alystar (Howard Brandon) – Sergeant Major of the Grey Rangers, orphaned and raised by the Church of Light as a priest and paladin, known for executing extremely dangerous missions and emerging threats with a high degree of discretion.
Bahiya bint Al’Shams (Ben Keeler) – Light-Blessed Priestess of Raz-Dash, Emissary of the Desert Princes, Scourge of Heretics.
Bayanai the Banal Wanderer (Matthew Dimalanta) – Mysterious Offspring, distant from the world… but determined to see the machinations of the Merchant and his ilk undone, at all costs.
Cairos (Josh Weber) – The millennia old Archmage, willing to endure everything to bring back everyone.

Drufus (Scott Crosson) – Archer, tactical specialist, and wearer of a mysterious artifact hat with a special history. Talented, courageous, and stylish, Drufus is a welcome surprise for the allies of Light and Life.
Erasmus Flint (Raymond Greer) – The often underestimated, highly connected plotter, planner, and schemer who knows how to get heroes to go far beyond heroics to do the impossible! (Secretly Brother Mantlett, the Black Lantern’s agent in the field)

Krazkar spent a great deal of time on the front lines and behind the scenes in the struggle against Camon. Incredibly lucky and one of the finest fencers in the land, he is known as an enforcer and right-hand-man to the mysterious underworld figure known as “Zebediah Stone.”
