The Goodman Gang Campaign (D&D 4e)
Adventure #1 WOTC DCC53 Sellswords of Fallcrest (Level 1)
Between sessions we had a little bit of a chat, mostly via e-mail, I wanted to get some idea about what the players were thinking, vis- as the title says- “What the heck is going on here?”
These are, in summary, the guy’s replies-
1) The Beggar King has hired a load of mercenaries in- no idea why but it’s sure to be something bad.
2) The Beggar King is dead, or else something has happened to him- probably something bad. It usually is.
3) There’s something going on. Probably bad.
It’s not a great set of answers but, from my perspective, more or less exactly where I wanted them to be. Although the enemies, for the most part, are human- or at least humanoid, the guys have not been able to take many prisoners; and even when they have they’ve not learned anything of significance. It seems the bad guys they’ve come up against so far are also in the dark- they don’t know what’s going on exactly.
It has to be said I’d like to have done more roleplay and made a bigger thing about the mystery, that said the guys seem to be getting it- something bad has happened here…
I’m happy to report the players were keen to find out what?
