We’ve just released the sixth free Treasure Tables PDF, Evil Overlords: Faction Players in Your Campaign.
This PDF collects World Powers and Big-Picture Plotlines, my post introducing the evil overlord concept, and The Care and Feeding of Evil Overlords, Tom Bisbee’s post detailing how he implemented that concept in his current campaign (with his permission — thanks, Tom!).
Heres the short version: If your campaign features power groups and events in the background, and those elements have an impact on the PCs (the foreground), why not recruit a few gamers to play the factions and world powers via email?
Combined with our Evil Overlord Recruitment Bureau forum, this PDF gives you everything you need to try out faction players in your own campaign — I hope you’ll give it a shot!
