|The Drunken Dragon|
A couple of days ago I found and dusted off my DVD copy of Gurren Lagann, and after rewatching some of that, on top of finding a very interesting animation on the internet, I've decided to run a big sweeping adventure campaign, the kind that will take my PCs all across the world in search of some fantastic treasure.
But before I begin, I wanted to scope out on the forums a little for some ideas. Basically, what I'm looking for is input from you guys: what in your mind comprises a great sweeping journey? Windy deserts? Heaven-piercing mountain ranges? Haunted, centuries-old forests? Fast and narrow urban sprawls? What? Gimme all your best ideas and experiences.
On top of that, if anyone has any recommendations for adventure pathes or modules that have a similar bent, or even inspiration from other media (movies, books, etc.) that deals with this topic, feel free to share that as well. I'm all ears folks. What do you think makes up a really epic quest?
