View Full Version : Epic level campaigns?(3.5)

2010-10-03, 06:38 AM
So, I have been DM'ing for a good portion of the year currently. In that time, the characters managed to get from level 1, up to level 15 currently. I don't really have the motivation, and even more, the time necessary to write my own adventures, so for the most part we relied on the official material, be it from WotC or some other publishing houses.

I have some material left which should be enough to bring the characters to level 19, maybe 20 before I'm out of stuff. While they are not opposed to starting over with different characters from the start, I was wondering if anyone has any good high level campaigns to recommend in case the players want to revisit these characters. I understand that from the official standpoint there are none, or if there are, there are those that take you from level 1 upward, but perhaps someone did a good homebrewed high level campaign or knows of a place where such things can be found? Or rewrote a good campaign from a different setting or edition to 3.5 that they would like to share?

I had a vague idea for an epic level campaign but it would only work if you can justify Asmodeus sending a dozen pit fiends and a greater aspect at them at level 21. They then get blindsided by the entire Hebdomad.

That's my way of saying "Welcome to Epic" :biggrin:

I don't know about campaigns, but monsters, I know these can be found on this forum:

Hisromam Angels. (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showpost.php?p=4982178&postcount=2) Nothing says epic like "Gods hate you!"

Outer Golems. (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=70137) Killer machines trying to kill all civilizations in the universe = Awesome!

Moiraiuts Inevitables. (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=144714) Keepers of fate and destiny.

Atroxosaurus. (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showpost.php?p=9331787&postcount=6) Making positive energy-imbued creatures a menace for once.

Or, you can always throw Pun-Pun at them. :smallamused:
Welcome to Epic! :smallbiggrin:

Heh, thanks, if I ever get around to writing my own campaign, I'll certainly take those creations under consideration ;). In fact, if I ever did make an epic level campaign it would probably be something with the heroes trying to take on the lords of the nine hells or something(going from weakest to the main man himself), but like I said, that takes time. And effort, and most of all research.

Until then, I was thinking of maybe even turning some of the second edition campaigns that I wiki'ed into third edition. There are a few high level ones there...

Also, Athas.org has rules for an epic-level Dark Sun campaign.

I might recommend looking up the Immortal's Handbook by UpperKrust. Awesome stuff for going well beyond Epic. And word of advice; try to focus on roleplaying and storytelling here. As a DM, most things in the Epic range have stat-blocks that are pure walls of text. And welcome to Epic! :smallsmile:
