I've got the mother of split parties in Thursday's session of my ASE/Denethix campaign. 3/4ths of the party are in Shadowbrook Manor, which I situated on the second bluff near Tarryfield. On the way, alerted by the crossing of the invisible 'bubble' around the manor are two ASE style wizards, The Toymaker, and one of my own called Axpra, Mistress of Saurians, with a vast train of Chasmosaurs and Pterosaurs. The remaining member of the party, a 3rd level Elementalist (via Theorems and Thaumaturgy) jumped down the well in Shadowbrook and ended up in.....Carcosa. She's about to be intercepted by a horde of lizard-riding Yellow Men and their imprisoned Blue Men sacrifices.

Interesting situation! How are you going to run it, back and forth at the table, or two sessions?

That remains to be seen whether the rest of the party jumps down the well after their most powerful (and impulsive) spellcaster. I don't mind doing split party narratives for one session or so (and if I flatter myself, I find it surprisingly easy), but I've never attempted it for longer than that. What are your thoughts?

I'd be worried that people get tired or bored if the split narrative lasts for too long. An idea would be to do two separate sessions, asking the players whose characters aren't there to play an NPC or fun throwaway character.
