23: You Are Not In A Tavern

March 1, 2015

This week we focus on how to successfully start a campaign.  It is fun and all to start in a tavern, but at times that start can become...well...stale like the left over bread in the cellar. As much fun as over sized mutated rats can be or the town hobo who babbles about tales of ages past, consider starting your campaign a different way this time around. Listen closely to the ideas and consider implementing some of your own.  If you do so let us know! We would love to hear them.
