A Message from the Dungeonmaster (05/04/2008)
So, with an epic battle, and unexpected happy ending, our adventurous journey of the past year has finally drawn to a close. While this particular story has come to an end, fear not: the world of Myterra and the intricate tales woven by the lives of the player-characters are likely not over! They shall return, in one form or another, to this magnificent world that all the players have helped me to forge from pure imagination. In all my years of gaming, one thing I’ve learned is that it’s next to impossible to have such a large gaming-party to maintain a consistent campaign almost weekly for an entire year. I thank all of you who participated; it was no small feat, and your overall dedication is to be commended.
However, all good stories must come to an end. There will be no more scheduled game sessions for the Seven Secrets. Thank you all for the great times, gret fun, and great memories!
Sincerely, Justin Mason (Dungeonmaster)
