Introduction to the World
The World of Westron is an Dungeons and Dragons Campaign that uses the 4th
Edition rules published by Wizards of the Coast. The campaign, using the
Chainmail ® and Original Dungeons and Dragons rules published by TSR, was
originally started in 1976 by Stuart Teramoto and has been running continuously
ever since. The campaign was founded with about a dozen players with Stuart
serving as the DM. Upon converting to 3rd Edition around the beginning of 2001,
the campaign had about 10 players. Upon converting to 4.0 in 2007, the campaign
still has about 10 players, including three of the original twelve. Stuart still
serves as the primary DM, however many of the current players “guest DM”. Ross
Chow has arisen as “DM Pro-Tem” adjudicating on all matters concerning Stuart’s
player characters in addition to serving as the group’s Webmaster. Ross has been
with the campaign since 1986.
All of the players live in the greater Seattle, Washington U.S.A. metro area and
upon converting to 4.0, all of the players are male with most being between 25
and 45 years of age. Over the years, there have been a number of female players
in the World of Westron with one in particular (Cheri) gaining significant
notoriety. Games are conducted about once a month (less in Summer, more in
Winter) with 4 to 6 players per session. Sessions are almost always on the
weekend and start (promptly?) at 10:00 AM and run six to eight hours in length.
The group has recently recruited new blood and would consider additional new
players under the right circumstances in the future, but is currently not
accepting new players.
The campaign is set in a medieval fantasy world and is generally a “high
powered” campaign as the vast majority of the players have played fantasy roll
playing games for 20 or more years. The campaign has a European flavor with a
touch of Asian heritage, given the ethnicity of the primary participants. The
campaign is also pre-gun powder and there is no “advanced technology” (laser
guns, radios, etc.) at this time. Adventures on planes other than the prime
material are uncommon but occur with increased frequency as characters approach
