Today I’ll discuss some revisions I’m considering for Primordia as I begin preparations for my first campaign in the setting. I’ll also answer a few remaining listener questions about the setting. This is a great example of how worldbuilding is a process that never truly ends. Never be afraid to make necessary revisions to your setting, even when you already have campaigns up and running.

While I’m making these revisions to my setting, I’m trying to avoid creating any of the deus ex machina messes we see in the Realms.
I also discuss my new Storm King’s Thunder campaign, and I talk about some of what I like and don’t like about running adventures in the Forgotten Realms in fifth edition. I talk about the decision to run in a homebrew setting versus a published setting. I also talk about walking the middle road between your own setting and a published setting.
