I'm starting a new 5e campaign tonight (in my defense, Shane Hensley himself said at Chupacabracon that it was important that gamers play different game systems as well as Savage Worlds). Since I'd like to make it a very player-centric open world, I realized I needed to create multiple plot hooks for the PCs to choose from.
So I ripped off the request board from the manga/anime Fairy Tail and put it in the Bright Blade Brandished...
On the Quest Board
- 1 Gold Piece per Orc Ear (And All the Treasure You Find!). Inquire with the Knights in Silver.
- Help Wanted. Alchemical shipment missing, presumed lost on the Rauvin somewhere after Nesme. Inquire with Vold Taman of the Lady’s College.

- NESME NEEDS TROLLHUNTERS. The town of Nesme is seeking adventurers of all persuasion (no questions asked) to drive back recent incursions from the Evermoors. Trolls have been attacking in larger numbers than have been seen in decades, and our resources are wearing thin. Brave adventurers should inquire with Comali Bazmit at the Golden Oak.
