I need some assistance on a city campaign
I'm going to dig through the posts here in just a few moments and probably in another section of the forums but for now I'm going to start this new thread cause I genuinely would love some help here and if it helps me I'm sure it'll help others.
I love DMing city campaigns and wilderness campaigns but really can only pull off dungeon campaigns to be the best sorts of games that I can manage. Perhaps that's sort of the average GM, but I want to graduate and I could really use some assistance.
Any tip and tricks that you all have regarding developing city campaigns would be an absolute treasure to me. I've got a city that I've been working on for a little while. It's a dwarves' stronghold, a very large one built into a mountain. It has a large wall surrounding a portion of the fertile lands around it which is close to a lake and some rivers in a valley and is well defended. The storyline of the city is steeped in a catastrophe involving an army of the living dead sweeping the countryside to pound on the gates with their siege weaponry, driving all manner of humanoids to hide behind the gates by making pacts with the dwarves in order to be allowed to stay and help fight off the invading force. They were successful in the end...
The request for assistance involves making a city campaign. How can I manage a city as a DM? What sorts of tips do you have for me and others when it comes to creating a city campaign and a city setting. Anything you can tell me would be a boon. Thank you.
Thank you very much for reading, posting and helping! <3
