Party Upset and a new direction

Well, an unfortunate encounter with 8 wandering minotaurs resulted in the death of the last original character...

but... he ended up being reincarnated, for the low, low price of pledging his services to Aziil, one of the Lords of Chaos. On impulse, half the party pledged their allegiance to Aziil and were spirited away.

So.... now we have pretty much an entirely new party of characters.

From here, the campaign will likely be going in a new direction. The characters could end up returning to their original campaign world, or perhaps to another world or another time. Players have different ideas about what to do next.

An interesting thing... the slain character's future self was previously encountered. Now that he has been revived (sort of) he may yet fulfill that destiny, but not necessarily as a party member.

I'm going to continue running my campaign, but I think the next session might take place a year or more later, and under different circumstances.

Some options I've bandied about:

-Oriental Adventures
-Al-Qadim
-A different era
-A different setting altogether
-The original setting.

I have also decided on the fate of the original three characters whose fate was left undecided. They survived the disintegration of Radamant's tower (though more than  a year has passed "back home") and, assuming their friends were forever lost, cut their losses and struck out on their own.

Thus, the original party is turned over, and their fates are thus:
*Quorry Tarmikos, human magic-user- slain in the Citadel of Chaos, only to be reincarnated and pledge his loyalty to Aziil, Lord of Chaos. Current whereabouts unknown.
*Keldrond, elf fighter/thief- slain by a Lurker Above in the caves above Radamant's Tower
*Kitor-human cleric-turned medic/technician slain my blowgun-wielding mutants in the abandoned nuclear facility in the Red Wastes on Tarraxian
*Tylon the Bladesinger, human fighter- separated from the party after Radamant's Tower disintegrated, he struck out to seek his fortune with...
*Agnomar of the White Eye, human barbarian and
*Muyule, half-elf thief. The three of them are presumably adventuring on their own in the kingdom of Avengard.

Other characters who have come and gone:
*Daspian, elf fighter/druid- Killed by laser-wielding mutant raccoons in the nuclear facility on Tarraxian.
*Rantz, mutant fighter- Killed by Ant Horrors in the nuclear facility on Tarraxian.
*Draxix- mutant fighter- Killed by a mutant plant in the Citadel of Chaos
*Axin, human ranger- Swore his loyalty to Aziil. Current whereabouts unknown.

and finally, the new party members:
*"Stilden, human fighter" (Actually an elf assassin of unknown name)- rescued by the party in the Citadel of Chaos.
*Georges, human bard- rescued by the party in the Citadel of Chaos
*Rosco Arkam, halfling thief- rescued by the party in the Citadel of Chaos. He pledged his loyalty to Aziil, but was rejected and, after a bit of torture, was returned to the party.

*New characters to be rolled up by Kurt and Anthony. (A monk and a cleric, as I understand it.)

  2. "*Kitor- slain my blowgun-wielding mutants in the abandoned nuclear facility in the Red Wastes on Tarraxian"

    Yes! Freaking awesome!

    I also love that the elf druid was slain by raccoons...raccoons that are packing energy weapon heat!
