I enjoy world-building. I also enjoy having well fleshed out NPC's, locations and Villains. However due to the business of life, I don't always have the time to work on all of these campaign elements as much as I'd like. It occurred to me that there are probably many others here at the Portal in the same predicament. Perhaps all of us have fleshed out a few elements of our campaign really well, but have other elements that we haven't gotten to yet.
So where am I going with all of this? Well my idea is just this. Why not collaborate with each other to help fill out those aspect of our campaigns that we just haven't gotten to yet? We are all in need of new and interesting NPC's, villains, locales now then as our players venture out into the unexplored parts of our world. Wouldn't it be nice to have some well thought out, ready-made campaign elements at hand to throw into the game at a moments notice? Do you have some NPC or Villain that you are particularly proud of? Or perhaps a village that you created to launch your campaign? Why not share your creation with the OP community. In turn you might find some interesting elements in someone else's campaign that you want to use for your own. This thread could be used as a campaign resource wherein those participating would post one or two of what they consider to be the best elements of their campaign.
So here's how I propose that this project be carried out:
* _First:_ While I hope that people will submit their best work, please try to avoid spamming. Keep your entries brief. Perhaps give a couple of sentences, or up to a paragraph of explanation related to the NPC, Villain, Tavern, Village or what have you that succinctly describes that element.
* _Second:_ Post a link to the page where others can read more about that element if they so choose.
* _Third:_ If you use some one else's material, you should leave them a comment here or at their site, or perhaps send them a private message letting them know about it. We all appreciate being recognized for our work
Also, it should go without saying that if you submit material that you have created to this thread, you are thereby implicitly giving others permission to use your work in their own campaigns. That said, I have some ideas I feel are worth sharing, but before I do so, I want to know if there is actually any interest in this project? So, what do you all think about this proposal?
