To tell the truth, I was a little sad to see the game come to an end... seven chapters and three kickstarter exclusive missions, and I never got tired of the game. I had such a good time playing! I'm really looking forward to playing the Dead Men Walking expansion sometime next year, and I'm debating whether or not to pick up the Undercity game that is the urban parallel to our swamp romp. For this final chapter, Sarge joined us, making it so that no one had to double up on a character, and we could all focus on beating up on some immortal booty!

The Fukuyama Gaming Club will be meeting next on July 22 and August 5. I myself will be absent from both meetings since, you know, America! So come and get a game to fill in my absence!
October is fast approaching, and with it the Japan Open Team Tournament, so make sure that you are registered and ready to go, since space are filling up!
And now... drum roll, please... the final chapter of the Widower's Wood campaign. I know you've been waiting with baited breath, and here we finally are, at the knife's edge between success and failure. The characters have been upgraded as far as we could get them... the players are on edge and ready to roll... the dice have been promised first born children for good rolls in the game... and... GO!
|Invincible Deathless, Invincible Schmethless|
As our last chapter ended, the characters had successfully interrupted the ritual that Rasheldonak was performing to resurrect an immortal Deathless. As the group was sharing a high five on a job well done saving the swamp, one last prayer from a dying Mist Speaker cracked the seal on the the Deathless' prison, and he appeared. The good news... Rasheldonak I guess took a blow to the head and realized what a mistake he made. Full of shame, the Gatorman Witch Doctor strode forward to banish what he had summoned, but bad news... he can't control the Deathless, and to show its displeasure at Sheldon, it promptly cut him in twain. Oops, well, that's what you get when you try to control and ancient evil! Time to send it back to sleep!
Chapter 7, More or Deathless:
|Even the villains are after it!|
|Menacing Ripples, I hate you!|
|Brave little Croak staring down an eternal Deathless|
|Skarg is FEARLESS!|
|The Gators tried to stab it in the back... no luck!|
|Out of the way, Trog!|
|How does Olo always get in these situations?|
|Down, foul creature!|
|Back to sleep, Deathless jerk!|
And thus, we can't wait to play the expansion, Dead Men Walking. I'm so looking forward to it, but with the tournament and everything coming up, I'm not sure when we'll get to it. I promise, you'll all be the first to know! Widower's Wood was a great game, and I think could have a pretty high re-playability. All in all, I give this game and its campaign a flat 9.5 out of 10! Go play it, people! Enjoy!
Well, that's all for now. Hopefully I'll be able to hit up a computer in the States to keep you up to date on all the good gaming I'll be having, but if I can't then it's going to be a couple of weeks until next time! Fear not! Another Duty Log will be up in the not too grim future! Until then, keep facing forward... you never know when the Commissar will be along!
