Over on the excellent Story Games forum, I asked folks who’ve been playing The Shadow of Yesterday about how long their campaigns have run:
– How many sessions has your series run?
– How many advances?
– What are the tell-tales you’re seeing that indicate the story’s coming to a conclusion? Strictly key-based, or are there other indicators?
The responses are very interesting, and run what can only be called the GAMUT from one extreme to the other.
One example: “We’ve run about 30 session, and we’ve gotten about 20 advances, per character, in that time.”
Another: “We’ve run five sessions, and we’ve earned about forty to sixy advances”
My conclusion from this — your TSoY mileage may vary. Alot. 🙂
