Word of Wizards - Excerpts: Campaign Arcs
Open Grave Excerpts: Campaign Arcs
Today's excerpt gives you an idea on how to turn the theme of the undead into a whole campaign. The excerpt here gives an outline for an entire campaign set in a kingdom ruled by vampires.
It breaks down the stages and adventures that players can participate during the course of the campaign into each of the tiers of play. Starting from the Heroic tier, the PCs are just beginning their careers as freedom fighters against the ruling yoke of the undead in villages to towns and it gradually builds up from there to the epic showdown with Orcus.
There are also a couple of minor campaign arcs that can be used to build mini-campaigns around them to make the best of the book when it is released in January.
