So the countdown the to new AD&D campaign is started. All the players have their concepts, Rob created his so I am waiting on Brian and Rusty to finish theirs. Rusty is thinking of doing a cleric or cleric/magic-user. I finished the pantheon over the weekend, I think it ended up being 13 gods, two of which are dead and one that in a catatonic state.
When I finished the pantheon I decided not to use alignments. I just feel they won't fit in with the world I'm building. I want players to have the freedom to slide a little up and down the good, evil or neutral scale. A cleric will of course need to play within the philosophy of their god to have their spells granted.
A paladin is just a title for one god's champions. Each god will have their version of a champion that will have special abilities as long as they adhere to their god's will. I have most of those figured out.
Working on the background now and a map. I wish I knew how to use those mapping programs, but I'll be drawing this one by hand. Which I like, but i have a lousy scanner and sometimes it doesn't come out. Anyway, it's Tuesday (blah), lunch is over and I'm looking forward to doing more work on the campaign when I get home.
