Still new to gaming (6 months), I'm totally addicted to D&D and would love to start running a Dragonlance campaign. I have the campaign books and am reading the tradebooks, but I'm a little stuck on where to start. Since this is my first campaign, I'd like it to be something that I don't have to know every since detail of Dragonlance history, and something that won't threaten to change the history of Dragonlance itself. Something minor and inconsequential, but within the cultural boundaries of the world.
So, how do you guys decide on campaign topics? What kind of ideas can you give me for a starting hero plot? I'm a writer, so I'd like to have a plot of some kind. Can you suggest some 'plots' that would be fun for the adventurers but not disrupt the world too much? Where do I start? Help!
