Reflecting on 2022 and Looking Ahead to 2023

Yesterday marked the 13th anniversary of this blog, and so I thought I should write something to mark the occasion. What is more, there have been some developments in my gaming life during the past year that are steering my present and future activities. Here are some highlights.

  • Probably the biggest development this year was the release of the Spelljammer campaign setting for D&D 5e, back in August. I read it, loved it, and decided to run Light of Xaryxis as my campaign for this school year. Happily, my players agreed to it.

  • As a result, I also backed a Kickstarter for an adventure anthology called Graveyard of the Gods. The premise of that has the heroes exploring the corpses of various deceased deities, starting at about 3rd level, and providing the foundation for an interesting campaign.

  • I also picked up a scenario from Kobold Press called Rise of the Mimic Moon, which I've already previewed. That, combined with the City of Freeport, seems like a great way to launch the campaign that would lead into Graveyard.

  • For that reason, I'm planning to write a series of posts called “Revisiting Freeport,” in which I look back at the material for that setting and plan a future campaign.

  • I'll also continue writing short supplements for use with Spelljammer and D&D 5e, which I call Captain Quin's Logbook, the first three of which are already available on the DMs Guild website.

  • Finally, 2023 should see the conclusion of the Apotheosis Campaign, the (working) title for the series of scenarios for use with Treasure Hunter Adventures and the Savage Worlds RPG. Once it's finished, that campaign is intended to take a party of Novice characters all the way to Legendary status, and hopefully it tells a fun and engaging story along the way.
