A few words about the campaign...

We will be playing Hot Springs Island.

This material was not written by Wizards of the Coast. It looks and feels very different. This campaign emphasizes combat as war (see below for explanation). Some of the encounters are not balanced at all. This is a closed sandbox, with a limited number of possible "You die" situations. I am going to replace death with temporary injuries. There is mature content and themes in the campaign (nudity, drug use). It is not toilet humor, but it is definitely there. There is complex ecology.

Treasuring hunting
Wilderness, nature, jungle, volcanoes
Elementals (particularly Fire and Water)
Elves, ogres, lizardfolk
Ancient ruins
Drugs, sex, alcohol, sin, corruption, overindulgence
Planes, planar travel

What will really work well:
Information-gathering abilities
Communication skills
Exploration skills
The ability to move quickly, and to escape from monsters

What will not work well:
A character who can fight well and that is it
Armor, other than light armor (you are in a hot jungle)
A lack of patience, and hastily jumping to conclusions
An unwillingness to figure out what is really going on (sometimes the bad guys are good)

Combat as Sport (a typical 5e encounter)
* fights between two (at least roughly) evenly matched sides
* values combat tactics that could be used to overcome the enemy and fair rules adhered to by both sides
* terrain and the specific situation should provide spice to the combat but never turn it into a turkey shoot
* the fight should have roughly equal sides and in which no greater strategic issues impinge on the fight or unbalance it

Combat as War
* you know who was going to win before the fight even starts
* a lot of the fun comes from using strategy and logistics to ensure that the playing field is heavily unbalanced in your favor
* when the party gets into trouble, I roll for consequences and we role paly it out
