Lorthyne's Dark Sun
I've taken it upon myself to run a game set in the Dark Sun setting with some friends in the area. I'm considering posting events and problems here on Gamegrene, in the spirit of Zipdrive's campaign forums.
Is anybody actually interested enough to read this and give feedback, or should I not waste my time?
Our first session will be tomorrow, assuming I can assmble the ranks effectively.
This is my first time running a dedicated campaign, and my first exposure to DMing with 3.5 rules.
Miscellaneous mechanical info about my campaign is as follows:
I'm using the converted ruleset as provided by athas.org
I've got 4 players, 1 that is very new, 2 that are slightly less new, and 1 that is a very experienced player and DM. He's actually the one who introduced me to modern DnD rules, and he knows them a lot better than I do.
PC's are beginnning with 4th-level characters. The setting usually calls for players to begin at 3rd level, but a few of the available PC races have a +3 level adjustment for experience gaining purposes, and I thought that starting play with 0 class levels was lame.
PC's are starting as slaves in the city-state of Draj. Once they've accomplished freedom the campaign will mostly consist of urban adventures and the like.
I'm always open for adventure ideas and seeds. I plan on tying the introductory escape from slavery into the Whispers of the Storm module (also found for free at athas.org) somehow. Updates on the first session will follow shortly, along with more specific details on my PCs.
