im here to ask what u guys think a an idea for campain please be onest

it starts out with a meating of the leaders of the clans of the isle of exiles. they called this meeting to discuss ways in which to get off the penisula that they have been imprisined on. they conclude that the only way is to declare war on the country (please segest name) assigned to guard the entrance of the penisula. so the tribes gather their armies and head threw the mountains to the other side to satrt their war. meanwhile after being tiped off by spies the contry has amased an army to wait for their arival. after the army of exiles comes and finds the enemy waiting they quikly retreat to the mountains and set up camp and call upon an elit squad of soldiers (the players) to assault the supply routes to cut off suplies to the enemy so to weaken them before they attack. after successfully compleating this task the army of exiles successfuly destroyes theopposing army while taking heavy casulties themselves. so the the team of elits find themselves called on mnay times to weaken the defenses of various citys in the country before the army attacks. but in the capital the spuad is captured unable to compleate the mission the main body of the army is destroyed.

a day before their execution and number of vampire spawn and skeleton soldiers assault the jail and and rescue them. they were then taken to a necromancer (please sugest name) who says that he wants their help to help bring down the country and explains that because of their attacks their has never been a better time for his plans. he also explains that he is breaking out other prisoners of war to even ferther his quest. first he sends out his teames to capture supply wagons being sent out to the cities so that he may build a (proper) base of operations. after this is done he sends his armies forward to capture and convert cities/towns to his cause therfor expanding his empire. one day orders come from the necromancer saying that he calued their services so much that he was promoting them to generals and that a army was coming that they were to be put in command of and that they sould move on to sieze the next town as soon as possible. when the army arives they find some 400 vampire spawn 1000 skeleton warriors and 100 gasts being commanded by 10 junior necromancies.

im out of ideas right now ill get back later. ill take sugestions about what should happen next.

Haven't actually read it yet, but I took the liberty of running it through spell check for readability

it starts out with a meeting of the leaders of the clans of the isle of exiles. They called this meeting to discuss ways in which to get off the peninsula that they have been imprisoned on. They conclude that the only way is to declare war on the country (please suggest name) assigned to guard the entrance of the peninsula. so the tribes gather their armies and head threw the mountains to the other side to satrt their war. Meanwhile after being tipped off by spies the country has amassed an army to wait for their arrival. After the army of exiles comes and finds the enemy waiting they quickly retreat to the mountains and set up camp and call upon an elite squad of soldiers (the players) to assault the supply routes to cut off supplies to the enemy so to weaken them before they attack. after successfully completing this task the army of exiles successfully destroys the opposing army while taking heavy casualties themselves. so the the team of elites find themselves called on many times to weaken the defenses of various cities in the country before the army attacks. but in the capital the squad is captured unable to complete the mission the main body of the army is destroyed.

a day before their execution and number of vampire spawn and skeleton soldiers assault the jail and rescue them. they were then taken to a necromancer (please suggest name) who says that he wants their help to help bring down the country and explains that because of their attacks their has never been a better time for his plans. he also explains that he is breaking out other prisoners of war to even further his quest. first he sends out his teams to capture supply wagons being sent out to the cities so that he may build a (proper) base of operations. After this is done he sends his armies forward to capture and convert cities/towns to his cause therefore expanding his empire. one day orders come from the necromancer saying that he valued their services so much that he was promoting them to generals and that a army was coming that they were to be put in command of and that they should move on to seize the next town as soon as possible. When the army arrives they find some 400 vampire spawn 1000 skeleton warriors and 100 ghasts being commanded by 10 junior necromancies.

All right, as you ask, I'll be honest.

Sounds way too heavily railroaded. You have already decided, before the campaign starts, which missions the players will succeed on, which ones they will fail. When they do fail, they survive only because you send a bunch of allegedly badass NPCs to rescue them -- again, it seems like the action is largely out of their control -- and the most specific ideas you have for what happens next involve specifying exactly how many of which sort of NPC you will be running.

I would suggest that instead of specifying what actually happens in your campaign, you set up the conflicting sides, and draw up a timetable for what would have happened if the PCs had not intervened. Naturally, it should work out badly for the side they are supporting; otherwise the story would have no need for protagonists. Also detail the main personalities on every side of the conflict, and prepare to improvise one the players hit the ground and start changing things.

That would be making things worse. It is not up to you what happens next; it is up to the players.

i thought it was a bit obviouse if the they dont seceed in their first mission then when the exiles attack then their entire army is blown away end of story. if they cant take out caravans guarded by 5 level 5 warrior and 3 level 5 archers then they certaitly cant hanldel the cties that come next. as for when they try to weaken the cities if they were to faill to destroy a crushel part of the defense then the army would simply take more casulites (numbers yet to be determined). but the capture in the capital is non negotiable fi they were to somhow escape their ninja capters then they would still have to wait to be found by the necromancer (name sugested as Adrian Lim) and wheres the fun in that.

do u think they should get 5 or 10 minites to netralize the guards befor the army attacks?

and how do u change your title. i dont want ot be a pixi in the playground.
