  10. My Down Darker Trails campaign (The Catastrophe Engine) is heading towards its conclusion. Due to complications with schedules, it's broken into two separate campaigns in the last month, but I hope to finish The Catastrophe Engine sometime early next year after roughly two years and about 30 game sessions (probably). Here's what I used for it so far: Prologue - Ill Met in the West The Evil Gun (Blood Brothers) The Murders in Midnight Terror on the Sequoyah Star Dark Tongs of Chinatown Worms! (Deadlands) The Last Valley The House on the Hill (Chill) The Doom that Came to Devil's Gulch (Devil's Gulch) The Abduction of Professor Marion Terwilliger The Beast Under the Bed (Challenge Magazine) The Causal Enigma or Strange Times in Gravity Falls Through the Night (Dungeon Magazine) The Spiral Crypt (online) The Vengeance of Jack Parker The Wolves of Wheeling or A Very Weisswald Christmas Falls Run (Dungeon Magazine for Masque of the Red Death) A Night at Black Knoll Fire of the Orient Independence Day (Deadlands) Unwholesome Expectations Good Thoughts Those not noted are ones I ended up writing up myself. I have one more scenario in the Catastrophe Engine Campaign to get done (the big conclusion). We'll see how it turns out.
