I’m in Greyhawk City! It’s even bigger than I thought it would be and so much more busy! Not to mention noisy. There are people everywhere and every type you told me about and some I couldn’t even identify. This is so exciting!
I saw some dwarves when I first came into the city. They were so cool and wore really beautiful armor. And I finally got to see a gnome! She didn’t seem to like me much, but that was probably my fault. I must have stared a bit, so she glared at me. When I tried to go over and introduce myself, she practically ran away. I was a bit sad since I really wanted to meet a gnome, but I’ll try not to stare next time.
There were so many places to go, I couldn’t figure out what to do first. So I decided to wander around a bit and get my bearings. This was a bad idea, though, since this place is so huge I got lost almost immediately! I ended up in the part of town they call “Little Ket,” though I didn’t know it then. I met some very nice Baklunish people as a result. They were selling food from a cart, and I stopped to ask if they could tell me where I was. They were so polite and friendly and not scared of me at all! The father offered to give me a map if I bought some food, and the meat smelled so good anyway it seemed like a great idea. But I remembered you telling me I shouldn’t take the first price someone tells me, so I haggled. I was afraid they would think I was really rude after they were so helpful, but the man seemed really happy. I don’t think I’m good at haggling, though, since the daughter had to help me. In the end I got a map of the city and some really tasty meat on a stick for a good price.

Every campaign gets an Adventure Log, a blog for your adventures!
While the wiki is great for organizing your campaign world, it’s not the best way to chronicle your adventures. For that purpose, you need a blog!
The Adventure Log will allow you to chronologically order the happenings of your campaign. It serves as the record of what has passed. After each gaming session, come to the Adventure Log and write up what happened. In time, it will grow into a great story!
Best of all, each Adventure Log post is also a wiki page! You can link back and forth with your wiki, characters, and so forth as you wish.
One final tip: Before you jump in and try to write up the entire history for your campaign, take a deep breath. Rather than spending days writing and getting exhausted, I would suggest writing a quick “Story So Far” with only a summary. Then, get back to gaming! Grow your Adventure Log over time, rather than all at once.
