The Praise of Old Men

Welcome to the The Praise of Old Men. The GM ('Ancellus') and players are enjoying creating a complex story set in Terry K Amthor's Shadow World, and hope that one day it will become a saga fit for the setting. Step inside and browse a while.

We are proud to be recognized as Campaign of the Month by Obsidian Portal in August 2018.
