Effective campaigns are all about managing expectations. In the upcoming Big Sky RPG West Marches campaign, understanding exactly what type of campaign it is, will be essential. Here is what a West Marches sandbox campaign entails.
A West Marches Campaign is launching in Billings!
Miles and miles to the west lies untamed plains, dark forests, and merciless deserts until travelers meet with the edge of civilization. If they survive the final stretch beyond that edge, they find Fendor's Gate, a town of ill repute. While most men and women of the realm are content to spend their lives within the walls of their villages, enclaves, and holds, a very few feel the call of the wilds beyond.
By tradition, Fendor's Gate is where these men and women gather to venture forth. Bold or quiet- selfish or generous- discontent or curious- you have come here to leave the civilized lands behind and forge a new destiny for yourself, by choice or by necessity.Welcome to West Marches.
This is a way to play in a persistent world that you and a group of players explore and change with every adventure. What adventures are available? That is up to you to find. Anyone can play and anyone can DM the sessions in this sandbox.
