I ll use a Forgotten Realm setting but somewhere to the north. The councils of Silvermoon and the Dwarven citadels have decided to tame the land between them and the Shade enclaves (Formerly of the Netheril Empire).
They have asked adventurers to step forward from among their best and brightest. The Lords and Ladies of the council will help set up the first town once the heroes have made a survey of the area.
This untamed land is rife with savage wildlife and unruly clans of humanoids but for those who manage to make a foothold, it can become a very lucrative investment. Some will join to make a name for themselves, others to become rich. Some will do it to help the common folk find a safe place to live while others to search for forgotten lore and power. But all will need to work together to survive.
Does an individual have to play Kingmaker before signing up for this campaign? I have no problem reading the lore but unfortunately, I have never played this before. I love long written post and RP heavy games, I mostly just role fill for games but a somewhat laid back Paladin would be a nice change of pace. Undecided on race, probably tiefling to mix it up, thanks.
In a few hours I ll be sending replies. They won t invite but feedback to make sure we are on the same page concerning the campaign. Also I ll be making suggestions to the character backgrounds to add some flavor.
