UselessTriviaManMan, I have really let this lag .
I know how you feel. I had grandiose plans to write up adventure synopses for my Kingmaker campaign. I started tape recording each session and even began to listen to the first tape to transpose it to an adventure scenario, but that didn't last, obviously! Now over 2 years into a campaign that has an every other week session, and getting toward the big bad in book 3, I've stopped recording the sessions and am probably never going to get the ones I have recorded into adventure logs!

I've kept up with posting adventure logs (my players don't take very good notes); I just haven't been posting the updates here on the forums. ;)

Yes, we're still playing our Ptolus campaign. I still suck at posting updates here on the forums, but here are a few interesting bits of what happened in the last session:
This sounds like a great night- and inappropriate jokes are gamers stock in trade
Just trying to help out.
Holy crap. Ptolus hit the 100 Fans mark.
Y'all are friggin' awesome, y'know that?
Someday when all this is over and we can safely meet up in person, we're going back to Ptolus. There are cultists in need of a good slaying. And you can be sure I'll be shouting it from the mountaintops when it fires back up again.
Such a great campaign! Congrats! Welcome to the gold jacket club!
I didn't get no jacket...

... Is your sewer gone? I went to http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v310/UselessTriviaMan/Ptolus Sewer Map small_zps3azyxrqc.jpg and it doesn't appear to exist... do I need to pay for a photobucket account to see it?
@eyelessgame No, definitely don't give Photobucket any money.
When I first started my Ptolus campaign many years ago, Photobucket was a free hosting service where I stored all my images. (At that early stage, Obsidian Portal's media library max was much lower.) I had hundreds of images on PB, and then one day they decided to change to a paid hosting platform and held hostage over a thousand of my images there, and put a massive opaque watermark over every single free image on their site.
I had to painstakingly, one-by-one, re-host and re-link every single image here on Obsidian Portal. I'm still not done replacing all the images on the behind-the-scenes GM-only pages, actually.
There were a few that got misplaced (like the mid-game action shots on Session 7), but I definitely have the sewer image. Where did you see that broken image? I thought I'd gotten 'em all.
Oh wait, it's right here in this thread. Yeah, I still have that image.
And now it's time to shout from the tip-top of the Spire itself, because at long last we're finally returning to Ptolus in about an hour!
So....????? How did it go?
It was an absolute success. We were all happy to return to the gaming table, and after a pretty significant recap of the campaign plotlines the party managed to get a lot more done.
They dodged a couple of really nasty traps, beat up some demons, and freed a bunch of prisoners. We ended on a good cliffhanger where they'll be facing off next time against the high priestess of the Kaleidoscope Temple and two of those demons they'd previously faced. (They ran off and tattled on us!)
Three weeks ago we had our first in-person game in over a year. So happy to hear you've resumed!. Looking forward to your writeup.
Okay @eyelessgame, your wish is granted.
Session 35: Back in Action at Last!!
Cool to hear that the return to Ptolus went well.
our group is hoping to have our first session round a table on 4 September 2021. I will just be a player in this game, but it will be good to actually be around a table again.
