When you play in a homebrew campaign, what do YOU want in the campaign gazetteer?
I'm working on one now for my homebrew Steampunk/Dying Earth campaign, and I'm using the 2nd Edition Planescape Campaign Setting as a template.
But how much is too much? What are the bare bones you want for your campaign gazetteer? How much is too little?
I'm currently focusing on the hometown (a big city) and the basic cosmology and geography (gods and continents and empires), and some homebrew races. I want to keep the "main" continent a little vague so they can explore it.
Anything else I should consider adding?
I'm also going to have a few house rules (this is for 5th Edition), but they're relatively minor (swapping out some weapon proficiencies for firearms, magic item attunement, inspiration, and the number of spells you can concentrate on tied to your proficiency bonus (or half your PB for concentration)).
