A lovely rainy day greets me today as I sit down to muse. Today like many other gamers out there I am undertaking preparations to run Storm Kings Thunder. The newest adventure line in D&D 5Es lineup. Fitting to muse about Storm Kings Thunder while it’s storming outside.
My first thoughts on the product are that this is an excellent sandbox for my players to play in. My second thought is… Oh my, where am I going to stick this in my personal world! The adventure itself is set in the Forgotten Realms. But I run a homebrew world so placement will be important for my personal game.
The thought of this is very exciting for me and at the same time fill me with a bit of anxiety. As many of you know this is the first time that my players will have the opportunity to leave my homebrews “Motherland” so to speak. As well as with Storm Kings Thunder being a large sandbox story with plenty of options for the players to travel great distances in their effort to complete the story. The likelihood that this will be the first game campaign that will spend at least part of its time outside of the region of my world where my games have been taking place for nearly 20 years is strong. Hence my anxiety.
But I go into this knowing that I am very pleased with the new regions of the world that I have developed. Even if I do have some anxiety I know it is only natural and I look forward to reintroducing my players to the world of Primordia.
With growth comes change I guess.
