I am currently DMing a campaign in a world I have built from the outside-in over a four month period. I have spent a lot of time on the grand scheme rather than the minor details, and after the first two sessions I have realized that the area in which I started the PCs is not as fun or rewarding as I had hoped for 1st–2nd level characters.

I would like to smoothly transition my party from one area of the world to another by using some sort of story-driven motivation. I have brain stormed a few ideas but thought I would come to some of the experts for help!

The party began as slaves with no recollection of their past, so there is an open story to be brought to life there. Excited to hear from you all, thanks.

    \$\begingroup\$ Hi, welcome to the site. I suggest you take the Tour—we may be a little different from what you are used to. The format of the site is hyper-focused on answering specific questions authoritatively; this focus has left is rather poor at discussion and idea generation, and as such we do not host those things here. We would be happy to flesh out any ideas you come up with, to answer any questions about the details, but for actually hashing out an idea, you need a discussion forum. Luckily, we do recommend several of those. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Are you looking for ideas, or looking for methods? We can help with methods—in fact, that question would already have answers in How do I quickly get the PCs to a distant location for the next adventure? —but for idea-generation the site's non-discussion Q&A voting system is poorly suited (as KRyan aptly explains). \$\endgroup\$ Aug 22, 2016 at 17:41
  • \$\begingroup\$ @nitsua60 You’ll note that chat is the most-recommended discussion forum in the list I linked ;) Unfortunately, Caelan does not quite have enough rep for it. \$\endgroup\$
