Blackmoor D&D 4E MMRPG: Year of Prophecy (Blackmoor Week 2019)

Post by Havard » Sun Sep 29, 2019 8:29 pm

We have obtained the files and adventures that were created for the D&D 4E version of the Blackmoor MMRPG. Now, we are making those available as free downloads at The Comeback Inn. We are starting with the first adventure, labelled Episode 4001: Brightest Day, Blackest Night.

"In 1299, a new age is dawning, diplomacy happens and you are part of it. Or at least delivering it for those in leadership positions of the great city states that are part of it. But nothing is ever as simple as it seems, with danger and treachery lurking everywhere, even In Brightest day, In Blackest Night… A Dave Arneson’s Blackmoor adventure for heroic level characters."

That's right. These adventures are set in the fabled Age of the Wolf, centuries after the previous iterations of Blackmoor. This is really exciting since so little is known about what was planned for this era of Blackmoor's history.

More details here.

Does that mean that an Age of the Wolf sourcebook/netbook was actually written?

I suspect it was. It is difficult to say to what extent it was completed, but I have seen evidence that a draft exists. Most likely, it is in the hands of the freelance designers who were never paid for their work. It is doubtful that they will want to hand it over and they may even be legally prevented from doing so.

The adventures and other files I will be releasing for the Year of Prophecy do contain further hints about what this setting would have been like.

Also, I have compiled many clues in this Piazza thread about the Age of the Wolf.

It is amazing how much amateur content from various different sources will be published in these days! Unbelievable!
