Re-running my campaign!

I talked to The Boyfriend and another friend of ours last night about finally playing an RPG.  It's been a while since any of us were in consistent campaigns.  I've been filling the void with bioware games, which works to some degree but it's still not the same.

I have told some of you guys about the D&D game I ran in college, but you all only got the tale end of it since I only put in the last semester I ran it--which happened to be my last semester at college.  I told you about the fantastic characters I got to play with and how they ended the campaign.

But at the same time, I love have alternate endings to books.  And what if different heros were in the same world?  I mean, my players were in it for justice considering their backstories, and maintained fairly good "business" and political relationships.  Hell, one even fell in love with the Queen he was serving!  I know the people that will be playing will have very different views and very different motivations.  The Boyfriend is more into setting, and our other friend who wants to play is more into characters but won't be doing the same stuff my college friends did.

I'm definitely someone who's willing to see something go in a different direction.  I want to see where this will lead.  And at this point, considering I think I will have some time free up soon (I'm switching around my 5 jobs essentially) this is actually feasible.

And I'll be sure to update what happens in my campaign on this blog!  Hooray!


  1. If you are short on time, D&D may not be the best system. Savage Worlds, for example, is a lot easier to prep for than D&D.

  2. It wouldn't be saving me time to learn a system unfortunately. Also, half of the stuff i have has already been made, so I think prep time won't be so time consuming. But thanks for the tip!

  3. sounds exciting! The great thing about D&D is that you can pick something up from decades before and continue as if nothing's changed. And it's nice to see familiar PCs in a campaign, maybe have old characters turn up as NPCs along the way.

    My husband and bro-in-law both DM in our group and both have homebrew worlds, it's nice that they've managed to overlap the two slightly (both spelljammer based) so there's a degree of continuity.

    I look forward to reading about your games :D
