The Blighted Rift

One thing we're doing with the current campaign is that everyone is encouraged to create wilderness mini-regions of their own, and anyone can propose an expedition into one of those regions. If it's one of my regions, I GM. If it's one of your regions, you GM and I play. 

The Blighted Rift is the first of what I expect will be many mini-regions from other members of my gaming circle. Credit goes to Andrew Devenney for this one. (He also has a column some folks might find interesting at Play the Past.) 

The Blighted Rift, once a dwarven homeland of great wealth, this rift valley is now overrun with poisonous blight gas and undead rotters. The few dwarves remaining fight a hopeless battle to reclaim their homeland from the shambling dead, grimin scavengers, and a new evil emerging in the Frostfells.


  1. That is a very kewl idea...must learn to let players have more input...THANKS!


  2. Glad you like it. You can't have Andrew, though. He's ours. :-)

    I'm looking forward to being able to do some rotating GM duties. There's certainly precedent -- my understanding is that the earliest days of the hobby had plenty of room for referees to not only run their own worlds but also visit those of others. Our approach just collapses "worlds" down into smaller regions and puts them all in one wilderness. I'll have a PC ready to put together an expedition to one of Andrew's regions in the near future.
