So I'm starting a new group with my kids. I played a long running campaign with friends for nearly two decades called The Shields of the North...and now my kids and some of their friends are wanting to play too.
We are starting in Phlan in the Ruins of Adventure; with the following things "in the future" for them:
Against the Slavers: will be "in the area" by having Darkshelf Quarry actually be one of the early adventures. Replacing the Village of Darkshelf with the city of Phlan who will be using the Quarry to bring stone for rebuilding. I'm pushing the other segments of the module to the Pirate Isles though. Slavers come into the Moonsea to buy slaves and to take them as well. Details are sketchy right now; but the essence is there.
Against the Giants: After the city of Phlan is "saved" giants will start raiding outlying settlements. Hill Giant Chief will be in the foothills of the Dragonspines...then the others in the Dragonspine Mountains.
Temple of Elemental Evil: will be in Sullaspryn. No village of Hommlet. Going to convert Sullaspryn to a pirate haven (a version of Nulb).
I have several smaller adventures planned too; but for the most part I'm only going to place things "in their way" and let them go from there.
Current party is:
Oynstein: LG human male Paladin of the Triad.
Din of the Dragonspine Mts.: CG dwarf male Barbarian (Battlerager).
Caelcormac: CN elf male Fighter/Magic-User
Krage: N human male Druid
Ahleena: N elf female Magic-user/Thief
?: NG elf female Cleric/Magic-User (daughter hasn't decided a name)
More to come...
AD&D for me!
