Within the Wicked Wilds is Quelmar’s 4th community D&D campaign. Based in central PA, Wicked Wilds follows behind Into the Greedy Green but picks up 66 years forward into the future, in 893 PR, and shifts from Isonhound to the continent of Amusa.
Wicked Wilds began in April 2023 and is expected to run for approximately 2 years (based on previous community campaigns)
About[edit | edit source]
In the year 877 PR, airships filled the skies, the accomplishment of Tolme Pendergras spreading to all points in the realm. As the need for airships in the war against Tiamat is satisfied, private and commercial construction begins.
Now 15 years later in 893 PR on the continent of Amusa, in The City of Galik, one particular company by the name of Tempest Brothers Expeditionary Company has been the most recent recipient of two aged airships. They are earnestly looking for eager adventurers to join them and use this new technology and venture deeper into the heart of Amusa than was ever possible before.

House Rules[edit | edit source]
- All directions of movement, including diagonals, are 5 feet.
- Taking a critical hit while making death saving throws is 1 automatic fail, not 2.
- Ammunition and Carrying Capacity are not tracked. Though it may be determined on a case by case basis if you are carrying too much of something.
- It's assumed players are supplied basic components for spells at camp between sessions. Very expensive components (like diamonds) are still tracked and necessary.
- An inspiration point can be used to "De-Inspire" an enemy's check, save, or attack.
- Allies and Enemies in a line of fire do not provide half-cover (unless they actively choose to provide cover for someone else)
- The Flanking variant rule is in play, allowing players to get advantage if they attack an enemy from two opposing sides.
- Players can cast 2 spells on their turn as long as one is a bonus action, and is not limited to Cantrip actions only.
- Spell Scrolls:
- Any character can use a spell scroll. If a player uses a spell scroll for a spell that is not from their class's spell list, they must make a DC 10 plus the level of the spell Arcana check. On a success the spell is cast as normal, but on a failure the player's action is used up while the spell scroll remains.
- Critical Hit Variant Rule:
- When a critical attack is rolled, gather the entire dice pool as per the standard rule.
- Remove one of the dice representing the weapons base damage and set it aside with its highest value facing up.
- Roll the rest of the dice pool.
- Total the rolled dice pool and then add the highest value of the die that was set aside.
- Then add any relevant modifiers.
