Episode Fifteen: New and Pristine!

In Episode Fifteen we are talking about how to satisfactorily end a campaign. We tend to run short campaigns, with a smallish scope (although we have saved the world a few times), that end when appropriate. There is nothing more satisfying than a great game, and nothing better than bringing a beloved campaign to a satisfactory end.

So..let’s END IT! But be sure to let us know about your own ending strategies via email, Twitter, Facebook, and in the comments!
