New Campaign World

So I’ve recently read the guide to instant DMing from http://www.dungeonmastering.com/.  I have to say I really enjoyed it, and while I sometimes feel sort of lost after reading something with few concrete examples, I think I’m onto something here.  So, I guess the first thing that I’ve got to do is work to further develop my new world that I’ve been building….

I’ve got a few things down so far:

-The world is called Trillia

-During an ancient war the rotation of the world was brought to a halt

-It doesn’t rotate, so there’s a frozen always night side, and a scorching always day side.  Between these two extremes there’s a twilight area where most life exists.

-There are ancient elemental dragons who guard the apex of each environment in the world (ice waste, desert, ocean, terrestrial environments).

-Populations are highly segregated, with a few select races inhabiting any particular area.

-Dragonborn, goblins, lizardfolk and kobolds make up the main societies of the our starting area.

-Seafaring travel is rare, so contact between races is limited.

-Within the starting area there are interests in starting the planetary motion again.

-There are goblin groups who explore ancient ruins, and evidence of different races in past society.

-The Ultimate Campaign Goal:  If the characters can restore rotation to the world, they will be able to enjoy it’s diversity!

  2. Thats a pretty good outline! I would work on details of the starting town/area and NPCs of note. Cool world concept, tho!

  3. Thanks both of you, I’ve set the campaign in motion with my players, and decided the town has stables, a general store, inn/tavern, temple and a military academy. One of the PCs trained at the academy, so I’ve introduced a couple NPCs from there, and the players will just be returning to town headed for the temple next session, so I’ll have a chance to elaborate on that location.
