Comments on 2020-06-21 Campaign End Talk

Sounds like a good campaign end to me. If you’ve still got enthusiasm for the same sandbox world, why not restart with new level 1 characters in an unexplored area of the map. Make the existing characters retire as heroes and become back story for the world.

Yeah, good point! I’ve been doing this for a few years, now. I ran the first campaign in this setting in 2008, using D&D 3.5 at the time. In 2012 I wrote a blog post about the persistent campaign setting where I refer to Rob Conley’s Sandbox Fantasy blog post in the same year:

So for me the most important points in running a Sandbox Fantasy are

  1. Players should be allowed to have a meaningful impact on the setting both large and small.
  2. The results of past campaigns serve as background for the current campaign.
  3. The focus on establishing their legacy solves many of the problems of high level play.

Good stuff. We’ll see.
