    Birthright is a great setting. but most gamers do also play alternative campaign settings. since birthright-players are a very special bunch it might me interesting to know which campaigns they like in addition to cerilia.

    Personally I prefer Kalamar and Dragonlance. Kalamar is very close to the birthright-setting and dragonlance is fantastic epic-fantasy.

    My Favourite campaign (other than Birthright) is Dragonlance because of its very good literature.. The most I dislike are the Forgotten Realms! (You play a [for you] very high level caracter [10.th level or so]and you are still nothing...)

    If we're not playing BR, than we're playing in homegrown worlds. But my favorite RPG, even though it isn't D&D, and I haven't played it in years, is Runequest. IMHO it is has the best game mechanic system there is, it just had the same problem BR did, poor advertising.

    Alternative Campaign? How could you play another campaign after being infected with the Birthright bug?

    When not playing Birthright, I play Magic.

    Although my favorite campaign has always been Birthright, I also occasionally DM a Lankhmar campaign modified to fit the 3E rules. I have both the 1E and the 2E editions of the scenario. I like the medieval urban feel to the setting, although some of the rules were a pain to implement properly.
    To sig or not to sig. That is my signature!

    Other than Birthright!?!

    Is there such a thing?
    One law, One court, One allied people, One coin, and one tax, is what I shall bring to Cerilia.

    I've always liked Dragonlance as well. Especially as a GM. D&D was always too involved in keeping track of numbers and rules and such. I really like the impromptu challange ranking style of Dragonlance. Lets me focus on developing the storyline and bringing it to life. But as a Player... Nothing but Birthright!!

    See now I found that the storyline was way too controlling in Dragonlance and didn't like it at all!
