I want to try to publish my own RPG, Old School type adventure, supplement, whatever. Mostly to see if I can rise to the challenge, partly because I think it’ll be fun, and also because, well, why not. In this DIY Self-Publishing POD era, more people should give it a go.
So I’ve come up with an idea for, sort of, an Old School Adventure Path/Campaign/Sandbox adventure. The spark of inspiration came when watching Camelot, reading the Deed of Paksenarrion, and thinking about my own game. Then I remembered the Kingmaker adventure path that was out not so long ago.
I am going to give it a try. It’ll be something with an initial hook, a large sandbox region to play in, monthly ‘events’ and geared towards taking characters from Level 1 to Name Level (9, thereabouts). There’ll be plenty of room for DMs to put what they want in it, areas to expand, empty places to fill with their own adventures and locales, but also plenty already there. A mix of lairs and bandit camps, dungeons and ancient temples. They sort of thing.
It’s going to be a lot of work, but I like a challenge. I’ll post my ‘design notes’ as I go along, in case anyone is interested. And feel free to chip in with comments, for good or ill.
