Just finished my first D&D campaign 30 minutes ago.
We started in November of 2011 and ended tonight. Yesterday, we started at 6:30pm and didn’t end until 4:30am this morning. The campaign spanned a variant of the “Against the Giants,” and “The Spider Queen” modules, eventually leading to our party aiding in the destruction the drow spider goddess, Loth.
My first real character, Raesa, started as a rogue/wizard, reborn into a spellthief who eventually the epic levels and has divine rank 0 (hero-god status—each party member received this, along with several other titles). Each of my respective party members went their separate ways.
One taking up the banner of the fallen god of the downtrodden. Another took one of the NPC party members as a wife (really cute story there), one decided to travel the world with her level 4 dwarven mail-carrier companion (given to her by a deck of many things, affectionately nick-named Derpy).
Our druid decided to forgo his chance at immortality and decided to spend his remaining time exploring the world and all it’s nature. Our fighter presumably left to join the ranks of the god of war in an eternal struggle against good and evil. Our dragon priest left to find his dragon companion on the dragon isles (presumably to find himself some hot metallic dragon booty).
While each character pursues greatness and discovery in the prime world, or acquires divinity and knowledge—Raesa will go elsewhere. Though a consort of the god of thieves, she will use her hero-god status to gain entrance to the city of doors: Sigil. Her story will continue to expand for me, if not in game.
Raesa, her story and her struggle will always be a part of me. I’ll never forget this adventure or the things I experienced with my friends in the world of Taladas.
I hope those of you who play dungeons and dragons get the opportunity to see an epic campaign like this to the end. It was truly something remarkable.
