The Living Death Campaign was a living campaign promoted through an organized play program of the RPGA. It ran from 1996 through 2007.
Living Death was set in Masque of the Red Death; the initial scenarios were created for Advanced Dungeons & Dragons (2nd Edition) - the campaign then transitioned through Dungeons & Dragons (3rd Edition) to Dungeons & Dragons (3.5 Edition) during 2000-03.
News and supporting articles for Living Death formed the primary theme of Polyhedron (Issue 112 - Vol. 15, No. 10), including a character sheet.
The campaign was played in seasons assigned to specific campaign years, from 1890 (1996) through 1899 (2007).
Characters who participated in Living Death scenarios often earned a "Cert", or Certificate. This physical certificate noted specific treasure, items, in-game notoriety, and experience gained by the participant character during play. A sample page of "Certs" can be seen in the image gallery of Pawprint 10: Sands of Time.
