The Sethat Era

Sethat, one of the princes of the nymph kingdom, wakes up in his bed. He heads out into the palace to enjoy yet another day of the wonder and beauty of his luxurious lifestyle, but instead he finds members of the Cormyr court waiting for him. It is Blacklock, and Sethat is told some dire news: he is the son of Seath, one of the most powerful wizards in the world; he is destined to find the Crystal Staff, buried in the middle of a mountain; worst, there are men coming to kill him and find the Staff for themselves.

I can’t remember a whole lot of exactly what happened in this campaign, but I do remember it was a very good one. By this point the world was fairly well established; although it was years after the Seath campaign, I could still bring in well-known NPCs, and familiar settings. The campaign ran shorter than usual (certainly not the year length of the Power Orbs narrative, or the, what, four years the whole Carcer thing went on for?) and managed to have a fairly tight formula - Sethat and Tara-Lyrra’s daughter, who had a name like Tara-Lara or something - had to reach the Crystal Staff before the bad guys did. It resulted in some pretty intense rping, and, best of all, really fleshed out the world. PCs having children who become PCs basically weaves the characters into the mythological fabric of the world.
