I’ve started a new 5E campaign with some people I don’t know. They will soon either love me or hate me (as a GM. Possibly as a person).
Basically, I’m taking all my favorite modules I’ve read over the years, and combining them into a campaign setting. It will likely be pretty gonzo, considering I like Deep Carbon Observatory, Yoon-Suin, Scenic Dunnsmouth, Slumbering Ursine Dunes, a few Forgotten Realms locations/modules, and The Styes (from Dungeon #121). That’s just to start with. I’m pretty certain aboleths are going to be a major thing in the campaign, along with some weird shadow shit I’ve come up with that involves worlds phasing together.
We’ve done three adventures so far, just to get started, in a very heavily modded ‘Lost Mine of Phandelver (There are xvarts).’ Looking like PCs will end up on level 4, which means a perfect time to introduce them to Patrick Stuart’s DCO. I’ll write about that first session, should be fun.
