Greets.
Frank Mentzer here.

This thread is for info, Q&A, and discussion of my replay from NTRPG 1.
The adventure is formally "SAR: Blueberry Cockle" (aka Stoned Again due to the plethora of petrifactions present).

IF YOU ARE A PLAYER, please check in here! We need to sort who's got which characters, and all that.

WARNING: This is an extremely difficult adventure. That said, it can be completely thought out and outguessed. It has no Gygaxian surprise-deathtraps (though the system may contain some at VHL). As you would expect, this is about resource planning & usage, plus high-end strategic & tactical competence.

ATTACHED BELOW is the full set of character sheets (PDF).
New spells and odd items are included, as well as other tables & mechanics pertinent to VHL play.
All players are assumed to be familiar with the characteristics (especially resources & assets) of all player characters... or at least all attending.

...

I will ramble in this thread about some of the characteristics of VHL play, tips for smooth party functionality, rule importance (strict vs handwaived), etc etc. :)
