New Year, New You… New Campaign? Whether you’re rolling up a fresh character or reviving an old favorite, the start of a campaign has a certain magic to it! And with this month’s Adventure Seeds I aim to give DMs a jump start on how to start off that sometimes awkward first session.
I thoroughly enjoyed coming up with these Adventure Seeds- my only problem now is I want to run them all! Some of them focus on a story element that could translate into a larger story arc, while others provide easy ways to suddenly make the group work together!
Only assumptions this time around is that it’s Session 1 (or 0!) at your table and you want to kick things off with a bang! Also, in some of the seeds it may refer to people in general, such as survivors of a shipwreck. It’s up to you if that is just the players or if any NPCs are along for the ride as well. And as an added tip, I found it sometimes helps to tell players while they’re creating their characters what the initial hook is. Saying that they already agreed to help the merchant may be a little railroad-y, but it gives them time and agency to decide why they would help. It’s worked well for me in my recent campaigns!
And lastly, if you enjoy our Adventure Seeds, why not upgrade from 25 to 30? Starting this month and every month going forward, when we post our monthly Adventure Seeds article we’ll post an additional 5 seeds over at our Patreon as a small way of saying thanks to those who support us!
