Undead Campaign? 
24th-Nov-2004 11:50 am
I bought Libris Mortis last week and am beginning to develop some ideas for an undead campaign I plan to run early next year. Still debating on whether to set the PCs up as the good guys or the bad guys, though. Anyone here ever run, or play in, an undead campaign? What worked? What didn't?

Sure. Its just an option I was mentioning. Something to be aware of (the change in balance between the classes). I just worry that the cleric will short-circuit a bunch of encounters every day if they're undead.

'Oh look, 10 Zombies, I turn them and the archers slaughter them. Next encounter.'

If they are zombies, and you cleric can turn them all without though, either the party is too high level to be encountering zombies or the challenge level was wrong. A 25th level cleric couldn't manage to turn my 21st ECL vampire fighter. They are just to powerful to listen. And with things like desecrate and unhallow, the effect is even greater. Put an evil cleric with them to bolster their resolve, and you have a real problem.

Kill the cleric first right? Well that's a tried and true party tactic, and the enemies will certainly try to do it as well.

Properly run, the cleric should run out of turn attempts and spells rapidly.
