[dungeoncrawl] Re: The end of an era

Once the world is created, we could even speed up time a bit and play the
children of our former characters.  It would be cool if we revisited the
world after 20 years or so and found the children had grown up and had
formed an adventuring band or something like that.

I could see a super cool plot someday 
where we have new characters from that 
world and they're sent on a quest to 
retrieve the kids.  

Or even if the kids are raised on the 
outer planes, they themselves might 
make neat characters.  Dennis's 
daughters have to be at least 10 by 
now, for example -
