Welcome to the Campaign Builders' Guild.

The core purpose of the guild and its membership is to offer a free and friendly community where anyone can take part in the discussion, review, and creation of homebrewed roleplay worlds and the campaigns that take place within them. We offer a welcoming atmosphere where constructive criticism and open feedback is encouraged in the hope that we might inspire each other to become better and more creative world builders. The roleplay gaming market has been flooded over time with numerous settings of all manner of theme and quality. There are times where such pre-designed games are ideal for you and your friends. We're here for all the other times. Creating a new world to call your own can be exciting, but it can also be daunting. The Campaign Builders' Guild is here to help. The membership is full of experienced roleplay gamers eager to guide you towards the goal of a polished campaign world that your players will look forward to taking part in. So what are you waiting for? There's an entire group of people waiting to meet you, all you have to do is take the plunge.


Last 20 Shouts:

Necromancy was used as a synonym for black magic due to conflation with "negromancy" which literally means black magic. If you want to talk about this more, a thread wouldn't hurt.
In D&D I'd say death magic only because plenty of spells affect bodies (like a lot of Transmutation or Abjuration spells for example); in real history it was often used as a synonym for any and all "black magic."


Let's say DnD compared to the real world.
Depends if we're talking about D&D, some other system of magic, or the real world.


I have a serious question. Does necromancy pertain to death magic exclusively, or is all magic that involves the body "Necromancy"?


For the record, I came up with my Clockpunk Rats before I found out about the Skaven... It's impossible to be original.
That's such a Steerpike thesis. Congrats!
(In reply to LoA)
My thesis was about weird fiction, the paradoxical aesthetics of disgust, and metaphysics.
Uber-congratulations, Steerpike! Or should I say Dr. Steerpike?
Way to go, SP!


What was your thesis about?
Shameless bragging: I successfully defended my PhD today.
Tell me more (perhaps in a thread, lest we tempt the combined wrath of sparkling horses!)
Guys, Veins of the Earth is really, really good. One of the best roleplaying supplement I've ever seen.
