Take part in the creation of a whole new campaign setting! Make a difference, and get your names written among the stars!

I am creating a new campaign setting for D&D, called Dragonlord, and now I need You to assist me.

During the last five weeks I have written a 48-page skeleton for the whole campaign setting, to act as a guide for the real campaign setting. This full 320-page supplement for D&D will be finished in june 2008 as a project in my college. During the spring semester, 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, I will write on this massive project, and I need you on this forum to give response on the project. Give me your thoughts as you read the document, share your ideas on new stories, places, monsters, or anything that comes to mind. This can be a creation of the whole D&D community!

"So where can I read this skeleton of a masterpiece?" I hear you ask. You can download the pdf right here: http://hacktheplanet.se/clas....ng.pdf, and if you want to have a real printed version you gan get one here, at Lulu.com.

Help me with this project, and help create a whole new campaign setting, by the community, for the community.

Speaking of PDFs, did Adobe fix that exploit yet where a virus could be executed through opening a PDF file in Internet Explorer?


Links are borked for me.

My Spidey-bot sense is tingling....though it has been known to be wrong before.

I assure you I am no bot :rolleyes: . I just made it a little more dramatic to draw your eyes here. And would never put any viruses in my work, I would just be glad if anyone read them. And with the activity on this forum, with six replies just after one day, I think this can be where I can get the most response.
So please, if you are the least bit interested in a new campaign setting, and have the time, read it. Response is very hard to get byy nowadays.
Thank you for your time! :)

Here is a brief synopsis from the back of the book:
Unfold yor wings, and fly into a world ruled by the most powerful creatures in existence. Be a dragonborn and test your mettle againt the mighty half-red dragon fire giant that is rampaging in the village. Challange a spellscale for a mage-duel, and see if wizardry or sorcery is the supreme art. Or join in with the freedom fighters of the Free States, and fight the oppression of the Dragonlords.

In a world as infinite as the coins in Astilabor's hoard, you can be anything you can imagine.

I have fixed the links now, have at them. To answer your second question; I actually just Googled this site. I was looking for forums about D&D, and I currently has the document up on six different forums.

Mine eyes peruse the first couple paragraphs, and wonder why you do not have a a copy editor. =P

The general meat is actually pretty easy to swallow, but since it's a setting not a rule set, I don't really have much to say about it one way or another.
bah my forums is dead, so it is removed from my sig...

Btw, I'm making a game, it will be awesome, you will look forward to it.[/hype]

Actually, I tire of all these new books that Wizards spew out on a monthly basis. "New classes, new feats, new spells" they always say. This is not my intention with Dragonlord. Instead I plan to create a new world with a living history, culture and politics, and with plentiful opportunities for adventures. Therefore I would like to hear what you have to say about the feeling of the setting, and about its mood.

Editing is alot easier said than done Syn :)

We went through round after round with DHU, and stuff still is wrong.

Is it just you working on this? One of the things I was impressed with was the layout and style of the pages themselves, it "looks" nice :)

We did not manage quite so nice a look with our pages.

Yes, all the work (except for the map) is done by myself. I tried to get the layout as easy to read as possible, and as close to the "official" sourcebooks as possible.
