Non-urgent Adventures and Campaigns?

This thread got me thinking. I’ve been reading too many published adventures lately that all have a timer of some sort. Some big bad Thing is going down, and the adventurers need to stop it. What kind of adventure/campaign can be constructed where taking a week-long rest doesn’t result in towns destroyed, kidnapped princesses sacrifced, or the BBEG inching closer to his plan?

What are some plot hooks that allow for downtime?

  • Artifact search. Nothing bad happens if they don’t find it, it’s just a cool thing to discover. Perhaps a rival treasure-seeker to racket up the tension when needed.
  • Survive. There might be a clock, but the goal is to run it out. Fight off monsters on the island until rescued. Find your way to the portal out of the Feywild.

What are some other ones?

Talislanta Incognita

Over on Facebook and Kickstarter Steve Sechi has posted a few preview pages of the upcoming Talislanta: The Savage Land book being prepared for printing this year. It looks gorgeous. The book is full-cover, with splendid interior design, painted illustrations and new typography, finally giving Talislanta a professional look that’s been absent for a long time.

The game will support “Classic Talislanta” (meaning a modified 2nd edition, it seems), Open d6 and “5th Edition” (Dungeons & Dragons) rulesets, but because of low demand will not publish the promised Savage Worlds or Pathfinder conversions.

Some minor notes: the stat blocks seem to show that variable damage (using dice rather than fixed values) is back. Fixed values were introduced in 4th edition and carried over into 5th, so this change definitely harkens back to earlier editions, something I can fully support. A few of the archetypes are marked as “NPC Only”, meaning…
