RPGaDAY 2020 Day 11: Stack


My Campaigns always begin with a sheet of paper detailing the names and important facts of the Player's Characters, the name of Prominent NPCs, and broad stokes about where they are and where they are going. I generally outline the direction I'd like to go with the story while also knowing that I'm going to prioritize a PC's goals over my story.

This means that as the Campaign grows I add more pages to the Stack with notes, more NPCs, maps, and magic items.

I've run two DnD Campaigns to Level 20 and my Stack of notes ended up being 30 to 50 pages. I'd like to tell you they were all neatly fit into a binder or all in a notebook of some kind, but generally they are simply blank printer paper that gets filled on both sides with bullet points I think are important.

It's an imperfect system, but it works for me.
