Trollsmyth vs. the Volcano

Player: Are you planning on doing anything with the Volcanoe in the game?

Trollsmyth: Dude, you know the rule about showing a gun in act 1, right?

If, at some point in the game, somebody doesn't end up in a climactic duel with their arch-nemesis on the edge of the volcano as it bubbles and boils and threatens to erupt, with the fate of the world and their one true love in the balance, while dragons and ki-rin engage in dizzying aerial combat in the skies above and an army of mutant, four-armed white apes surrounds a regiment of holy warrior nuns engaged in a last-ditch and desperate defensive action on the slopes below, Jeff Rients, James Raggi, and the freakin' ghosts of Gygax and Arneson will all personally show up at my home and kick my ass.

That's not how you use a volcano The Raggi Way.

You have the adventure in the caverns underneath the bubbling, fiery cauldron.

Give the players a Dig scroll or something and let them discover that the treasure/MacGuffin is in the ceiling somewhere.

I approve of your end-game! :D

Yeah cool. But the real challenge is to start a campaign medias res, that scene and move on from there ;)

Sounds like Dragonlance to me...
