Planetorn: A Big, Hairy, Audacious Campaign

by Ken Newquist / June 7, 2007

A while back at My Play,  Gerald Cameron proposed the idea of the "BHAC" (Big, Hairy, Audacious Campaign), the sort of campaign that's earth-trembling huge its shear audacity and (I'm assuming) its variance from the norm. 

He throws out one example: normal D&D campaigns usually have a home town or city ... what happens if that city is build on the corpse of a tarrasque? It spawned a corresponding conversation over at Treasure Tables, with examples like a world overrun by vampires, a world in which everyone has superpowers, and one where giants rule over millions of humanoid slaves.

WISH 98: What's New?

by Ken Newquist / August 17, 2004

In WISH 98, Ginger asks:

What are three games or settings that you've bought or seen recently (in stores or previews) that you'd really like to try? What interests you about them and why?

Ebberon: At first, I wasn't sure if I was going to like this campaign setting, but it's grown on me as I've learned more about it. I like the steampunkish aspects of the game as well as the fact that the world is suffused with magic. It's significantly different from the standard D&D line (and my own relatively-low magic Greyhawk campaign) and that alone is enough to intrigue me.
