World Wide Adventure Writing Month begins today - 31 days, 32 pages.

The challenge - write an adventure scenario (to share) in the space of a month.  I've certainly written modules faster, and as for slow... well, I never did finish Safari, my homage to Man-Eaters of Tsavo.

My scenario for the month is: Toccata and Fur In A Minor, a scenario for the Cat RPG.  I'll be running this at both Origins and Gencon this summer, so it seems like a good candidate.  I'm infamous for finishing my module as I run it - I'll be trying to avoid that, for a change.
Here's the blurb:
A new family has moved into the neighborhood, and from the melancholy music you hear it seems that not all is well. Misery & Boggins - always together, and you're just the cats to deal with both. Cat is set in a mythic suburbia where the player characters are feline pets that are our secret guardians, keeping humans safe from an unseen world of gremlins and evil. This simple system encourages family play and all age groups' participation.
My 32 pages will include maps and pre-generated characters.

So far, though, all I have are some sketchy ideas based on a session I ran for some friends in DC.

Sounds fun!

I don't know if I'll have any free slots for playing at Origins, but at the very least I need to haul you out and buy you a drink, which I haven't done in a couple years.

I am so up for drinks, especially if someone else is paying!

And I'm running Marketplace Mayhem for you. I've signed up to play Vampiric Cow. (grin)

I know of another adventure you are writing.....

Yup. But since I can't really start till I have the rules, AND I don't have the final distribution rights to it, it's not eligible for WWAWM.

I really haven't done a lot of flat out writing in recent years, and it's exciting to get back into it.

It is my hope to have the rules to you within a week. You will have the first 5 chapters of the book, which has all the rules. :)

Adventure writing is a love/hate proposition for me. It is so hard sometimes to account for everything, that it makes the writing difficult. When an adventure works, however, that is a great reward.

good luck with the project!

A fine game, Cat. Wish I could attend either convention to play, but I doubt I'll see another Origins or GenCon anytime soon.

Ah...dude... things still going badly? I'm so sorry...

You have the geographic advantage that I could probably be persuaded to come run in somewhere in AA.
