About this experience

Terror in Altbach


The town of Altbach sits midway between the Margreve Forest and the Ironcrags about 46 miles to the northwest of its mother city, Zobeck.  A quiet town that offers both a simple way of life, free from the noise and hustle of Zobeck, and a lively existence with Altbachers pursuing a variety of unique arts, such as crafting enchanted buttons and hammering some of the most exquisite gold leaf in the known world.  Usually a friendly town, of late a pall has fallen over Altbach as several dwarvish families have turned up dead and their children are missing.  An old companion, Calmuresh Coppersmith, now mayor of Altbach, has requested your assistance in solving the mystery of what is plaguing his town before it costs him his job.

House GM James Backstory

Greetings programs!

I was hooked on RPGs the very first time I sat down with my friend Connor and rolled up an Elf using TSR’s Basic D&D, aka the Red Box. Since that time, I have played in and/or run games of four of the five editions of the world’s most popular role-playing game, Shadowrun (1st-4th eds.), Cyberpunk 2.0.2.0, Legend of the Five Rings (1st ed.), Seventh Sea (1st ed.), Call of Cthulhu, and several oWoD White Wolf games, among others.

As for my GM’ing style, I like to center the characters in the story and let everything emanate from there with the players driving the tone of the table itself. I enjoy running games that run the gamut from light-hearted romps to dark suspense to everything in between and as an avocational folk lorist and historian, I enjoy bringing obscure folk lore or an embarrassing amount of research to the gaming table.
