Is there any hope to see any of the MMRPG 4E adventures?

There was a separate Blackmoor 4E MMRPG. I have files and adventures related to it. Would there be interest in seeing these at the Comeback Inn as well? :cool:

I am quite interested, for one. But, I'm aware that I maybe the only one...

There were adventures!?!?!

Heck yes I would like to see it.

Did the 4E Blackmoor campaign reboot the 3.5 campaign? Or did it start at new starting point with a new campaign?

Neither. The First Campaign 4e sourcebook just adds stuff to the D20 line. Dragonborn and tieflings have now a canonical place in Blackmoor, and the mechanics are adapted to 4e. It also includes stuff from other sources of the line, IIRC (for instance, the Son of Fire, Son of Hak two-part short story is in the book). Lorewise, the 4e book is fully compatible with the D20 books.

On the other hand, the MMRPG would have advanced the timeline to a point after the destruction of Blackmoor, the so-called "Age of the Wolf". So, I'm very excited about what secrets we can learn from these.

Indeed, the MMRPG adventures I have for Blackmoor 4E are set in the in 1299, the Age of the Wolf. This is 269 years into the future compared to the Blackmoor 3E books and 274 years after the DA Modules. Now before I get everyone's hopes up too much, I only have two adventures for this campaign. I have a few other files too though that might help give us more information. I am also investigating the possible existence of more adventures if they were written. If so I am going to release them as well. This is strictly material that was being worked on when the Blackmoor lisence was discontinued by WotC.

We could always write more fan material for either version of Blackmoor, but that would be a separate project. :)

Oooh! Interesting.

How easy would it be to use the 4e adventures with 3rd Edition D&D (or some other set of D&D rules)?

As with most Blackmoor MMRPG Episodes, the adventures are fairly light. It is generally easy to adopt the adventures to any edition. Experienced DMs should certainly have few problems with this.
