inspired by post: https://campaign-community.com/inde...lot-stories-or-dungeon-crawlers.747/post-5358

I read up on station53, critical hits 5x5 and attempted to incorporate this mindset into logger entries.

So i have an Organisation ^Cult Of Oztt, their campaign entry will be the "faction pyramid/overview"
Then i create a campaign entry with the minus tag for a FRONT and tag the organisation in that entry and in this campaign entry i basically copy station53's blog post.

I also decided to use + tag for 5rd rooms, so maybe i'll put those as tags inside the table... like so:

and then i have a campaign entry for the loopy point *infected H....

I just added a list of information reveals, seeds for "how can you reveal whats going on as information gathering/discovery", clues you might say. Information that is not in itself an encounter but reveals the presence of the front and/or organisation.

and added tags to the clues

i still personally have to adjust to all 3 ways of thinking though :)
I still havent created a full 5rd yet, i always stumble on the twist and have trouble coming up with ideas for "next" clues in room 5. but thats for another thread somewhere :D

This 5x5 approach with different fronts involved rocks for me!
It increases the density of the story for me and creates a more vibrant world.
I am eager to test my prepared stuff in the next session.

I havent had time to continue my experiment yet, prep for todays session and worldbuild to underline it has taken priority.
But i'd love to see your prep work with this, maybe a separate CL file we can download like that 5rd example with the menagerie:)

You will get a CL file! I wanted to make all my prep work and scenarios for my Borderland campaign publicly available anyway.

This format generates a complex adventure, suitable for 3 to 4 sessions. It is not suited for my current gaming format, the West Marches-style Play, as I want to do one mission in one session.

I havent even gotten around to actually use it yet, im still working on incorporating 5RD in my prep :D But i thought this would be good for a more overarcing story, something that can be sprinkled throughout other stuff. Like it could inform you of clues they could find in that one session mission that was related to the 5x5 ?

As soon as I know how we will handle the "end" of the adventure, I will post my CL prep entry here and will be looking forward to your feedback.
