Great World of Darkness Chronicle: Adventures and Stories

When I first though of doing "The Great World of Darkness Chronicle." my intention was to run a solo game of various groups through all, or at least most, of the pre-published stories for Vampire, Werewolf, and Mage. Knowing that most of these are, eh, let's just say "thoroughly plotted", my thought was to heavily intersperse these tales with my own custom and randomly generated stories. Well, I've spend the past day or so trying to come up with a complete list of the adventures. So far, this is what I have.

I spent far too much time trying to get blogger to post these images at the same size.

Now, looking at this, a couple of thoughts pop into my head.

First, I'm clearly missing a few adventures. Possibly quite a few. My main source was the fan-based White Wolf Wiki and I know for a fact they were missing some. Unfortunately, I couldn't find anything close to a better source. Even drivethrurpg didn't come close to the Wiki as far as showing what adventures were in which book. If you see any glaring holes, please let me know.

Secondly, this is a LOT of material. Like, far more than I think I really appreciated when I first began exploring this idea. My initial thought of a "best case scenario" for the time line of this project assumed roughly a week or so per adventure, and even at that ludicrous pace, it would take me roughly a year and half. And there is no way I'd be able to maintain that pace. This is going to be a multi-year project. 

And you know what? I still want to try it. Sure, it may take a laughably long time to complete, but the focus is on having fun, not maintaining any sort of specific pace. There will be weeks and months where I let it lie fallow as I explore other ideas or just take a breather for a bit. Then, hopefully, there will be a fresh rush as I head back into it. It's going to be interesting, at least.
