So you've been playing Jack the Adventurer for a long time. Maybe months, maybe more than a year, maybe several. Who knows exactly? But it's been one hell of a campaign and things are escalating. The climax is coming up next session. If Jack is your character, how many of you are expecting Jack to be fighting a BBEG for his final challenge?
What I'm curious to see is how many people have actually finished a campaign with a heist? Or by overseeing delicate, high tension, peace talks at a summit? Or by making a discovery so great that it takes the world into a new age? Or by making a full scale siege on a fortress? Or anything other than just fighting a BBEG?
Now to be clear, I'm not talking about campaigns that end by TPK or end prematurely for whatever reason. I'm just curious to see how many people have had a climax to a campaign that did not involve a fight with a BBEG. If you have, what was it? Was it as satisfying for you as killing a big scary evil guy? And was it just the one time or does your DM do a good job of mixing things up?
