I’m declaring November to be NaCaCrMo.
Sodium-Calcium-Chromium-Molybdenum for the win!
Oh, wait. No. With all the national month of this or that or the other thing in November, I thought I might turn my own attentions to creating a campaign setting in a month, both to see if I can do it, and to share my own process for doing so with you all. I’m calling it NAtional CAmpaign CReation MOnth. Because those sorts of semi-acronyms are all the rage nowadays, apparently. Maybe it’s not “national”, but I’ll give it a try anyway.
Starting on November 1st, I’ll go from a bare concept to (hopefully) a finished, ready-to-play campaign setting that could last many years of play.
My only self-imposed limitations:
- It’ll be written for some form of D&D or OSR game (or more than one)
- It’ll have at least one complete map and accompanying descriptive text
- It’ll be in final, playable (not necessarily publishable – formatting and layout is not required) form by November 30
- It’ll have at least one unique twist to set it apart from most other campaign settings
