Duuuude. I'd write this stuff for a living if I could!

What kind of scale are you looking for? I have a number of 'verses lying around, waiting to be adapted.

I know what you mean! I love writing for games. As for scale since I don't have a regular group I was thinking I would do a sort of Colville style West Marches game with a central start point city and then a large scale hex map. Each hex would represent an area with some kind of encounter ranging from a small discovery (item, shrine, person) to massive dungeons that might interlink hexes.

I figure that way I'd be able to have players that don't have to be regular. They could just form a party from the starting city and then explore hexes. I'd reveal hexes as adventurers explored to become "city knowledge".

It also lets me pull fun stuff from every where and adapt it to the game.

Are you running the campaing in Forgotten Realms?

Merlin  ·  135 days ago  ·  link  ·  

It will be loosely based on the forgotten realms but most geography and societies will be altered. I'll also probably pull from Dark Sun and Eberron and then some homebrew. The beauty of the hex explore system is the land can change pretty dramatically over distances.

So, clear, classic fantasy?

Merlin  ·  135 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Oh yes, classic fantasy gaming. I've been thinking I might incorporate gunpowder technology with Matt Mercer's Gunslinger class and a few items. That would be it though.

Alright. What kind of ideas are you looking for?
