It has been a few weeks since the last post but I am getting away from campaign details in this post to talk about an important piece of every D&D game: preparation.
First off, you obviously need to prep your adventure and what will actually happen in the game session. I will not go into details on adventure creation here but there are a few things you need to be sure to have. Have a basic outline of the storyline as a minimum. Chris Perkins provides a fantastic example in his article here.
I use Obsidian Portal to organize my campaign and outline sheets like the one above. Wizard's Community also has an excellent wiki to organize and save data like this.
Next up, you need your monsters. Have the stat cards on hand ...

Hey everyone! Quick update. My party has recently split into 2 groups for a few reasons. Firstly, we were at 7 PCs with another wanting to play. Too many for an epic tier adventure. Secondly, the group was wanting to go in different directions storywise. Lastly (along with a growing tension between a few players) it worked better based on where everyone lived and how far they had to commute to play.
The first group I refer to as the Seekers (Lomian the vryloka warlock, Gauthak the goliath barbarian, Jinroy the changeling bard, and Astrid the half-elf battlemind) because they went off seeking other things. The second group is the Chosen (Three the warforged cleric, Shadow the human hybrid, Aetius the eladrin bladesinger, and Stelian the vryloka...

The players finally made their way to the end of the tomb on Pluton. After a vicious fight with a fey in the feywild crossover, the characters end up in a room with a large skull on the floor. While attempting to return the magical gems to their spots on the skull, an aspect of the dead god Nerull attacks. A second appears and the fight is really on! Lomian, the vryloka warlock was the first to fall. Shortly after, Three, the warforged cleric, died and that is when the party began to freak. With some good rolls, good tactics, and strong wills the three remaining party members were able to defeat the aspects and move on to...

Our campaign is run in a semi-created world known as, "The Fold." The 4th Edition D&D campaign known as “Quest for Starfire” takes place in a world that includes some of the published D&D world. You can find remnants of Bael Turath as well as the Nentir Vale in the southeastern region of our world. The special portion of our map is of a region known as “Aestonia.” This is place, originally created by me but expanded upon by our gaming group. Most of the campaign takes place on this massive continent. I’ve created a map of one coast of Aestonia for reference:
The map shown here is the main region of Aestonia. Most of the events occur near this area. Keep in mind that this map shows no...
