Thread: Working on a 1st time campaign

    Post Working on a 1st time campaign

    Hey everyone, awesome site and amazing maps I've seen posted. I'm making my first original campaign from the ground up and plan to post my progress, and share the maps and campaign info. I've never run a game before, but I have a good feel on how it should be done.

    Here's just a little low level kobold hideout encounter with the kobolds' cave headquarters for their trade route raids.

    PCs enter a cave and find a narrow (squeeze) passageway [1] that leads into a proper dungeon hallway. After a trap at the entrance slows them up, a barrage of arrows starts towards them as the Kobolds have an arrow slit [4] built in the wall facing down this entryway. Once the PCs enter and start dispatching the now scrambling Kobolds, they can explore this hideout. There is a dining/cooking area [6] with some prison bars [7], and a large training room [8] with a freshwater fountain [9]. PCs can find the leader's room [5] and when the eventually kill the leader and find the secret trigger, they can access the secret passageway to the treasury of all the raids.

    And thanks for adding a map in your first post. It has a nice, classy D&D look and feel to it. Have some rep!

    Good stuff, looks nice. Hope you do some more. Oh, and welcome.

    Great use of Torstans's tiles, looking forward to seeing more of your ideas coming to light.
