Just out of curiosity... from your "I am glad to read that Hârn and Kelestia are alive and thriving," I get the impression that you've been familiar with Harn for quite some time?
Back in 1988 a friend of mine "found religion" and gave up playing RPG's. He gave me all of his Hârn material and after seeing the map of Hârn, I devoured the accompanying books. I was hooked. It was the best Fantasy setting that I had ever or would ever find.
I immediately went on a quest to get as many of the books as I could and amassed a decent-sized collection within a couple of months.
By the summer of '89 I was ready to run my first campaign in Hârn. I began it in Harden, Elorinshire, Melderyn and made the PC's start as 8,9 and 10 year old children. I took some liberties and made them related to prominent citizens and or nobles. They had a series of Goonies-style adventures which involved a Naveh-worshipping cult and a trip to Telumar (no I didn't have the article, I just made it all up as I went). The campaign spanned about 9 years in-game and the PC's developed as they went. I started them with low stats and no skills or classes (I was using D&D as my system and gradually transferring things to Hârnmaster). I increased (or in some cases reduced) player's stats and added skills based on the decisions that they made in-game. By the time they had reached adulthood each character was pretty well-rounded and the party included, a cleric of Save-K'norr, a wandering minstrel who had attended the Herald's college, a Laranian knight who had become jaded from fighting in the Solori Crusade, a Shek P'varr who had a Sindarin ancestor, a Melderyni noblewoman who took up arms and went on adventures and was publicly estranged by her father but who secretly had a great relationship with her old man (the Earl of Harden).
It was the best campaign I ever ran and I could not have done it without N. Robin Crossby and the rest of the Hârn developers.
These days I do more reading than gaming, but I dream of one day running the perfect campaign... Set in Hârn of course!
