I've stated exactly that. Several times now. Anyway, to make it clear :

Too Fast : Where characters at the end of a reasonable campaign can eat Harrek for breakfast, and are thinking seriously of going after Orlanth.

Problem : see 'Too Fast'.

Characters after eighteen months pushing W3. Character after five years pushing what? W5? 6? 7 doesn't seem impossible.

Oh, and I've been playing weekly for eighteen months, running demos and tests since the synopsis appeared on
