New Day Rising

New Day Rising

You are Severian, only son of the master necromancer of this castle. Growing up schooled by Liches, you showed more interest in the weapon practice you received at the withered hands of armour-clad Wights. At last your father good naturedly confesses defeat and tells you to follow your dream. Taking some adventuring supplies and plenty of money, you head off to the most advanced and populous city in the region... Altgarten.

Finally I've got the online version of Gavin Mitchell's sequel to Outsider! ready to play.

I feel I should manage expectations a little: this shouldn't in itself be compared to Outsider! as it is only small, if comparisons are drawn it should be with a single mission from Outsider!. Also, the rules are pretty much standard FF, rather than the complicated system described in the original. As ever, this is down to the amount of time it would take to make it happen.

Play it here

Thanks to Andy for putting this and Day in the Life up, and thanks to A EJohnston for the kind words.

I just was playing "Outsider!" yesterday, what a nice coincidence this is about to go up! I will be reading it with an open mind, and no prior expectations compared to Gavin's previous wonderful work- but even if it is a quarter as good I am sure I will enjoy it! Let the adventure begin.

Thanks again for adapting and posting this.

I'm still writing Mission 2....

An excellent job Gavin. I hope the romance blossoms. Looking forward to the next one!

I thank you for your kind words. Interesting you should mention the romance.... I'm now writing each mission separately, and have finally sorted out the paragraph numbers for the first half of mission 2.

Great read! I really liked the humor and the fact you got to choose your companions. I also liked that the setting was the same as Outsider! but had hoped for perhaps a few references to the original story (perhaps you could stumble on the old armory/ alchemy lab or something) but that's really just personal preference. Awesome story, if there is a next chapter I hope we can continue with same equipment and items.

I thank you for your kind words. There's one particular choice you can make in this mission which came out of the blue when I was writing it, which makes it obvious how it's a sequel. Otherwise thanks again.

Well, that was fun but brief. I enjoyed the descriptions and the irony. And who could have guessed that bringing the cleric with us would unleash a nuke? Oh well...! :-)
