Your guess is as good as mine.
The last campaign I ran ended in March. Since then, I’ve been running one(or two) shots and playing in one of my player’s one shots. However, I’ve been thinking about what kind of campaign I should run when the time comes.
For now, what I have decided is that it’s going to be D&D 5e and I will either run a published adventure or create a campaign in a published setting. That’s because when I will run the new campaign I will have either very little time or the need to let my brain rest. Thus, using published material, at least to some extent, will help me immensely.
Having run only Out of the Abyss out of all the adventures published by Wizards of the Coast, I have a lot of options. The only one I will probably not run as my next campaign is Curse of Strahd. That’s because one of my players asked for a less dark theme. And one place darker than a demon infested Underdark is Barovia.
I’ve already asked the awesome people of Twitter for suggestions and many have mentioned Storm King’s Thunder, Princes of the Apocalypse, and the two Tyranny of Dragons adventures (Hoard of the Dragon Queen and The Rise of Tiamat). All of them sound fine to me. I’ll have to talk to my players again to see which one interests them the most.
However, I’m also interested in the two upcoming adventures; Waterdeep: Dragon Heist and Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage. I’m a fan of urban campaigns and Dragon Heist promises exactly that. But I’m also fan of dungeon delves and going to the Undermountain is definitely intriguing.
All of the adventures above are placed in the Forgotten Realms. With the release of Eberron and the upcoming release of Ravnica as campaign settings, I will have the opportunity to do something with that. Running an Eberron campaign is something I’m really interested in doing. I love the setting and its lore and want to mess with it as much as I can.
Now that I think about it, I really want to run an Eberron campaign. Maybe have my players run around the world and unearth ancient artifacts and pieces oflost history. The possibilities are endless.
And that’s my answer for today’s question. I’d love to hear your thoughts on your next game as well as suggestions on what I should run.
Tomorrow’s question is “Describe the best compliment you’ve had gaming”. I really have to think about that.
So until then, have fun!
