Season 2 Introduction: The Pale Sea

Wed, 15 Jun 2022 16:01:00 GMT

The Pale Sea is a sandbox, hex crawl, Wild West style adventure setting. Forget the “big damn quest” style of campaigns, this one is all about the players and the stories that their characters bring to the table!  The Pale Sea is the graveyard of an ancient empire, and it’s ruins are ripe for the picking! But you aren’t the only ones looking for treasure beneath the sand. Along with natives, nomads, and other salvaging groups, you will come across different factions that all seek what’s beneath the sand but all for very different reasons. Will you make alliances? Will you make enemies? It’s all up to you!  Between mapping, dungeon delving, faction quests, establishing outposts, or just exploring the desert to see what you can find, there’s a lot of things to do in the pale sea! And that’s not to mention your characters’ own motivations for being there!  Sand and secrets await you in the Pale Sea! --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/combatoptional/support
