7th blog entry - Campaign introduction idea, No.1

Heya, and thanks for taking interest in my blog! Today, I give you a suggestion on how to start the first session of your new campaign, as the "After a long trip, you guys finally make it to a small village..." beginning is now officially being over-over-overused.  So, here's an example:

After the battle of Hareigh, the forces of both the elven kingdom and the orkish hordes have been reduced to mere nothingness. Still, elven determination to defend the holy tree of Leleigh remains strong, and the orkish warlord's hate for the light is still deeply cut into his mind. For the last three months, there have been no real military action on both sides. Everything now comes down to sending skirmishing units into the no-man's land, hoping they catch enemy's party off-guard. On one cold and rainy september morning, the group of orks ambushed and killed most of general Lohilem's unit which has been ordered to scout a small hilly portion of the northern front. The few who managed to save their lives (characters) have found shelter from the rain in a small and hidden cave. Considering the circumstances, they realize that no rescue party is likely to be dispatched, and the enemy unit might just be hiding around the next hill. With the night slowly creeping around the corners, food almost gone, bleeding cuts and painful bruises from the fight, and the rain which is only getting heavier, the survivors will have to use all their skills to survive and get back to a friendly fort. 

More to come! :)
