This post is part of a series of posts in the D&D 40th Anniversary Blog Hop Challenge. The information in many of these posts is related to events that occurred primarily in the1980’s. Since it is now 2014, I can not guarantee complete accuracy with such a large passage of time but I will present the events and information as best as I can recall.
Day 9: First campaign setting (published or homebrew) you played in.
When we first started playing A/D&D we did not really use any campaign world information outside of the scant information included in the modules or hinted at in various spots in the rule books. We just sort of acknowledged it in the background and winged the details from there. No one in our group ever bought any of the campaign settings for use in our games. The best answer I can give is that defaulted to the information given on Greyhawk in our AD&D gaming and to the Known World in the B/X games. We did not focus on or even go into great detail on the campaign world until we moved onto other games.
The first game world that really struck a chord with us was Palladium Fantasy. The world was different from the standard fantasy offerings from TSR at the time. We became very interested in exploring it after the core book and would pick up others. The other game world that really stood out was Talislanta.
