Exodus Campaign Kickoff
Now that I’m out from under Children of the Revolution (but still working on Hunters Hunted 2, Anarchs Unbound, and a fiction project… oh, and my day job of AAA video game development), I’m firing up a new Pathfinder campaign set in the Wilderlands of High Fantasy. You know, because I don’t have enough on my plate.
It’s an exploration campaign, turning the players loose on the world and letting them do what they want with it. Pathfinder is a little bit dense for this sort of thing — will no one deliver me from the perfidy of skill lists? — but it’s excellent for realizing distinct characters and niche protection. I want the players to have those distinctions when they charge into the unknown and either stake their claims or take up personal crusades.
In preparation for the kickoff, I bashed together a trailer-style introduction to the campaign. It’s light on details — those are the players’ province to flesh out — but good with mood and theme.
The trailer includes the art of E.M. Gist, Kris Kuksi, Fenghua Zhong, Ming Fan, Zheng Ma, Levi Hopkins, Yun Ling, James Paick, Jaime Jones, Mitchell Mohrhauser, Khang-Le, Jaemin Kim, Jeff Simpson, Thom Tenery, Seryl, Mathieu Lauffray, and Annis Naeem (all plucked from CGHub). The music is “La Douce” by Corvus Corax.
