Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Current Donor)JanessaRavenwood
So far...this doesn't make a lot of sense. Doubtless, you, the author, know all about these people, and when/where/how Buffy met them and what their relationship is with her. However, we, the readers do not. This is like reading half of a story.
Comments from author:
You're right this story has about 20 years of AD&D/GURPS campaign behind it. I'm intending on giving a lot more background in the future with this and other stores. There is a flashback coming in a future chapter that will explain how Buffy and Darial met. As much as i would like to give a full background to all the OC characters I can't because it will give away too much of the Plot. Thanks again for the review.

Review of chapter "Chapter 2" from Aenea
Congrats Buffy just wait til you find out that this is the DnD Death World :-D It makes Arrakis look like a walk on the beach.
Comments from author:
The Realms aren't that bad. Ok maybe your right, especially considering that my gaming group's player characters tend to laugh at Pit Fiends. I guess that comes from characters that have been around for a long time. I think Buffy will be fine in the realms. Not sure the other Scoobies will be though if they get there. Anyway thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "Chapter 2" from DragonBard

I'd say that the Scythe (in D&D terms) would be a Major Artifact that's a Dread/Bane Weapon against Undead and Outsiders (Evil) and possibly Keen as well.

I hope you don't set up Buffy with any OC, as that bugs the bejeebers out of me.

How are you going to handle Willow and Tara's magic? They seem to primarily use Arcane, but occasionally some Divine as well.
Comments from author:
The Scythe in modern D&D terms, i haven't got a clue because i do not own 4th ed and my knowledge of 3/3.5 D&D is pretty near zero. But at this point I'm not sure Buffy will be getting the Scythe anytime soon.

I have no direct plans on who Buffy will end up with. That will all depend on who easy and natural the relationships feel as i write them. I'm not ruling it in or out at the moment.

At the moment I haven't got a clue. Not even sure Willow and/or Tara will be arriving on the Realms.

Thank you for the review.

Review of chapter "Chapter 2" from BarbarossaRotbart
The beginning of this story is a little bit strange ... but the rest is interesting. With (most of) the Seven Sister still alive it clearly takes place during the pre-4th edition era. More of it. There cannot be enough Buffy/D&D crossovers.
And for the pairing... it seems that this will be Buffy/Darial but I would really like to see her with either one of the Seven Sisters or some other female adventurer.
Comments from author:
Buffy is unlikely to be with one of the sisters or Darial. This is based heavily on my old Realms rpg campaign '2nd ED' which is currently being converted over to unisystem. Which is one of the reasons i have updated this story. I was considering removing it. but I'll keep it going.
Darial is currently with Alustriel but that's not likely to remain so. As for Buffy well we'll just have to wait and see. :)

Thank you for the review

Review of chapter "Chapter 2" from bradsan
Well I'm not disappointed with this update. I really love it. Very good.

Thank you and I hope he can bring Dawn over. I don't care much about the others but Dawn will make Buffy a happy camper. Dawn would fit being the key and all and even being with the others she will be lonely without Buffy.

So Dawn would be good to me and no going back to Sunnydale I would rather have all the Scoobies here than Buffy back to Sunnydale. But hey that would be me and it's your story.

So good job so far.
Comments from author:
Well I read the this story again this afternoon and discovered a chunk missing from the first chapter, so i put that back and what i had from chapter 2. Darial is likely to bring Dawn over but that all depends on whether the plot can stand having the Key on the Realms.

Thank you for the review

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from bradsan
You promised more but I can't read anything more than this chapter. Do you think you'll write more or did you stop.

would like to read more if possible.
Comments from author:
This story stalled because I lost all my background notes for the events i had planned for it. I have a bit more written but haven't put it up because I'm not exactly happy with it at the moment. Real life also got in the way of writing and i have a backlog of rpg stuff i promised my group i would write. Having said that i will re-look at the story again.

This story and 'Problems with Portals' are going to share a lot of the same characters but it's set some 50+ years ahead in Lea and Darial's time-line than 'A journey through the Realms'. I have the end of 'Journey' which for obvious reasons i can't put up, it's the rest of it that was lost. So yes i will continue this story, especially now i know there's interest.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Gideon
If Buffy knows that Dawn is safe I can see her really getting into life on Fearun. Lots of nice battles without the pressure of saving the world on her shoulders.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Current Donor)JanessaRavenwood
It has some potential, but it's rather abrupt, like the story is being told on Fast-Forward and half of it is missing. Is this a crossover with more than the Realms? If so, what?
Comments from author:
Thanks for reading and reviewing

Sorry about the fast element to the story, just learning how to writing in this format.
As the story progresses it should slow down.

There are reasons i have left out chunks, some of the missing parts will become apparent later in the story and the others will be dealt with in separate stories.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from jimk
Definitely a good setting for a slayer to have an adventure!

Overall it is an interesting start but a little abrupt and short as far as introducing these other characters if they are OC's? Of course there are a lot of Realms books and games so maybe they are not OC's and I just don't know the book they are from?
Comments from author:
Thank you for reading and reviewing

Darial, Mick are Original characters as are the Royston characters, i'll be giving more details about them as the story progresses.
