With Skyrim Special Edition coming out last week I decided to make an opening adventure for DW that mirrors the opening of that game, which I spent SSOO much time playing (400+ hours on my PS3 and at about 25 since I picked up my PS4 copy on Friday).
The idea is that the party, along with a high profile NPC have been captured and are taken to the gallows. Something crashes in, killing several guards and others, and in the confusion the characters make their escape.
The players get to tell me where there are, why they’ve been captured, who the High Profile NPC is, and why he’s there, what it is that crashes in, plus some more goodies.
I plan to start a new campaign this weekend with this start, and can’t wait to see what kind of world my players and I build. My biggest challenge: Playing to see what happens instead of trying to recreate Skyrim.
Has anyone else ripped something straight out of a video game or other source to start their campaign? If so, has it been difficult to divorce the sources fiction from your own?
