Various campaigns

Another reminiscence post. Skip if you want interesting.

I'm trying to remember the campaigns I've run. Some of them were short because they didn't work (the universe-hopping one seemed like a good idea, but it was flawed). Others were short because of gamer ADHD or because people got bored. Not in chronological order.
  • The Concorde campaign, which I've talked about before. It was run in Champions, second printing to fourth edition.
  • The Wellington campaign, which used DC Heroes 2nd edition and 3rd edition.
  • The Patriot City campaign, which used 1st edition Mutants & Masterminds, and took place in Patriot City decades after the events in Freedom Force
  • The Minotaur campaign, which used 2nd edition Mutants & Masterminds, and used both Freedom City and the city of Bedlam...though it was really more the one adventure.
  • The Emerald Knights campaign, which tested out 3rd edition Mutants & Masterminds for us, and which I set in the Concorde universe's version of Detroit, Steel City.
  • The Aegis campaign, which used Fantasy Hero (though later I revisited it with CORPS).
  • The EABA playtest I did. It was set in the distant future of some other campaign I'd run, though I don't recall which one.
  • The Bureau of Extremely Foreign Affairs campaign, which used Espionage and later Danger International, and took place in the far-off years of the 2130.
  • The Alderson Disk campaign, which was set in the future of the BEFA campaign and ended when I painted myself into a corner.
  • The various ICONS things I've run, set in Halifax, in Toronto (the Hope Prep stuff), in Vancouver, and now in Strange City.
I suspect more will come to me, but those are (I think) the biggies. I don't count the Marvel Heroic playtest or the Masks playtest or the Supers! adventures...they were never campaign-like.
