#RPGaDay2015 Day 15 - Longest Campaign Played

The next campaign is always the best one. Some of us, like yours truly, are easily distracted by shiny things. I'm rather pleased that my recent Dungeon Crawl Classics "campaign" ran to completion with a total party kill in its second adventure...

My longest overall campaign is probably a game my brother and I would do off and on throughout the late 80s to the mid 90s, working its way through a variety of classic AD&D adventures along with a number of home-brew adventures. The Temple of Elemental Evil fell, the Slave Lords were defeated, as was Lolth, Demon Queen of Spiders. Great times were had on the Isle of the Ape as well as a visit to modern (1980s) London to retrieve the Mace of St. Cuthbert.

In a more traditional group I'd say the longest game I played in was a Star Wars campaign I ran from 1999 through 2004, with a few breaks for some Star Trek and D&D 3rd edition. It was a Rebellion campaign, starting off with a Jedi in Training former Imperial Senator and her half-sister smuggler. Over time they were joined by many more characters such as an Ewok, a bounty hunter, and a rugged mercenary. Using the D6 system I introduced many people to gaming in general.With members of the group going through a number of life changes as we entered our thirties it became clear the group was coming to an end. We ended with a bang, finalizing arcs with several NPCs and having the group perform a vital mission during the Battle of Endor - infiltrating the Death Star and deactivating a an internal deflector shield which had been set up to stop any rebels from flying into the superstructure and destroying the main reactor... It ended with singing Ewoks. Yub nub.
