Campaigns that are open (wide variety of choices) in green:

- Seafaring
- Large City (Port Springs, Rogues style)
- Single Race (Gnolls, Grean)
- Religion-based (Tyrogatore)
- Nation-based (Icefian, Mounted)
- Region-based (Great Forest, Palumbton)
- Villain-based (GOLK, dragons)
- Class-based (Wizards)

Within those, the level of open does vary, but if I had to divide, that is how I would.

Another question: Do we want to start in a new place (ex. Destroytian Republic) OR a place we've been before to see how its changed (ex. Yellowia)?

When you say open do you mean are currently being played or are our options?

How about the Lost Island where the God Stone is?  Could be a neat place to explore and a good setting for a GoLK campaign.

This is based off of Windblade's comment.  Open means the characters that can be played in these are open.  Others, such as religion-based campaign would be closed in that characters would be limited in class, race, alignment.

That's a fascinating idea.  I have never considered that one.  Any other interest out there?

That could be very interesting at some point but I would think it would be very limited in what race you can be. Correct?  However, I think it would be a cool thing to do at some point.

It would not fall into the open category.  Race would be limited, prestige classes limited as well.

Ultimately I think you should start with something that will best open the curtain on 4th Era. The Godstone idea is interesting but seems like it would be a very narrow option.

Yes, but it could potentially check off multiple categories at once.  GoLK campaign setting/religion, new races, we could even play as dragons/pseudo dragons/dragonkin.  It would be a new world, so it might make the transition to the new rules and changes easier to digest, kind of like the way we use the moon for 5th edition.  It's just a thought.

If I can be a ranger/huntsman with dinosaur animal companions, Iím all in.

I was hoping we could be Druids since it would tie in nicely with the lost world theme and would appropriately represent a "forgotten" character class that the GoLK would know, but the rest of Habololy wouldn't.

At no point, in no way, will there be druids.  Habastly exists on Forgotten Island.
