My FLGS Spirit Games runs a yearly convention at our local town hall called Beer & Pretzels, it’s quite informal with plenty of board games and the like to be borrowed from the games library that can be played over the day, it has a cool relaxed atmosphere, both myself and my wife Hannah have been going for a number of years.
This year, since I’ve been enjoying my 3Brothers D&D 5E campaign that I’m running online so much, I decided to run a one-shot set in a different area of the campaign world, getting the players to help further define a different area of the world. I’ve put out a call to people that I know and will hopefully have my wife, a long-time friend of ours and a couple of my regular 3Brothers players coming down for the weekend and joining in with this one-shot.
After canvassing their opinion we’ve landed on the idea of a desert kingdom ruled by a dynasty of elemental-blooded Pharoahs, drawing inspiration heavily from Ancient Egypt; below is a map of where this kingdom (that I have called Al Mamlakah) fits into my world map of Talamh.
I’m planning to get the players to help me define this desert kingdom more when they get down here but I’ve drafted out a rough framework and some character generation options (drawing on the Elemental Evil Players Handbook and some other resources I found on the internet) in a handout:
I hope to post a written report of the session after it has taken place, I’ll also add the report as an adventure log to my obsidian portal site.
