Dark Corners of Mystara: LOTFP Edition
Karameikos has always struck me as a great place for a darker, weirder kind of campaign -- far from the luxuries and excesses of the Empires. It's on the frontier, where an imperial force has invaded and taken over lands from clannish natives who reside in the wilderness. Humanity in Karameikos has yet to tame itself; how can it expect to tame the monstrous inhabitants of its dark forests or the malevolent spirits and entities that lurk in its mountains?
I hope to revisit Karameikos with the Lamentations of the Flame Princess ruleset for several reasons:
a) it's my go-to setting for D&D;
b) the classes line up nicely;
c) i like the ruleset.
But the weird vibe of LOTFP seems to resonate with the setting as well. I hope to place a bunch of the modules I picked up into the larger Mystaran realm. Let's see where it takes us.
First stop: that delightfully politically correct history of Traldar and Halav... and the monsters.
