D&D 5E 5e - Tales of the Old Margreve (Roll20) Campaign Recaps

Nebulous

This is the Kobold Press Midgard campaign setting, and in particular the adventure book focusing solely on the Margreve Forest. We started at 1st level and the campaign is still ongoing. There is no set end point, but probably won't go past 7th or 8th level. The adventure is being run in Roll20. It makes heavy use of the Tome of Beasts and Creature Codex, so a lot of foes are new and unknown to the players (who are a seasoned D&D group). Hope you enjoy. Comments are welcome.

Session #1 - Levoca

Has anyone else run this campaign? The scenarios are not really connected, it is more of a grab bag of interesting stuff and lots of lots of plot hooks for DMs to flesh out. I think I would have preferred it more linear, just to save some time. I'm having to thread a more coherent storyline through the campaign and weave in extra material.
 

Haven't run it. But do you NEED a coherent storyline? Could you just run a series of episodic scenarios and see what stories emerge organically? (Apologies if that's less than helpful.) Looking forward to these recaps!

That's what I've done :) A thread has emerged and that's the one I will generally weave through to the end.

The Margreve campaign book had some random encounters listed between Levoca and the final encounter in this scenario (aka the Boss Fight). I opted to incorporate those random encounters as planned set pieces instead and tie it into the "mad animal" storyline.

The first 9 sessions were the introductory arc of the campaign, got them to 3rd level, and now they will engage in other trials and tribulations the Margreve Forest has to offer.

that was a fun read! I am glad that I didn't notice this until today so I didn't get a cliffhanger
Did you read the first 9 sessions back to back? Yes, I guess that would be a cliffhanger. Our sessions aren't more than 2 hours apiece and sometimes shorter. On the OTHER hand, the many hours it takes to prep and then recap a session, two hours is fine with me.
