From the campaign:
The Twilight Dream is a 100+ page original campaign setting and adventure guide for fifth edition Dungeons & Dragons. This illustrated PDF takes players on an epic adventure inspired by the rich fantasies of the British Isles. You play as a group of high school students at Camelot University who, after discovering their extraordinary magical powers, are thrust headfirst into a battle to save two worlds from the mad ambitions of the Night King. The Twilight Dream is a secret world of magic and monsters, sky islands and scheming elven queens. Europa meanwhile is a land in the midst of great change as new technologies rapidly transform life for her people. Railways, ice cream, electricity and motion pictures exist side-by-side with kings and castles. It is an exciting time, full of interesting characters and new opportunities, and most of all – adventure!
The world of The Twilight Dream was inspired by the rich stories of Gaelic, Celtic and Brythonic folklore and mythology. It also borrows from Norse, north German, and later Christian traditions. The story is set in a time period roughly equivalent to the late American Wild West, a time of great societal change as technology brought humanity into the modern era. It was my intention when making this setting to capture the spirit of the source material in a way that was respectful to the original cultures and traditions, while not being strictly defined by their history. Lovers of history and mythology will find many nods to familiar characters and stories reimagined for our fantastical world.
