|I still love this cover!|
So, here's the problem. As is my nature I am overthinking this. When it comes to drawing the map and populating it I go into analysis paralysis in a couple of different forms. I haven't created a "formal" campaign since I was a kid. I want to do it right. As is also my nature I research. There are lots of good articles and posts about setting up campaigns. So I get lost in the research. Then, some of the articles have contradictory advice. Which do I follow? How should I do this? Then, throw in my Gamer ADD and I have a real mess. I just read a post about using central Asia and the Silk Road as the inspiration for a campaign. Cool! Maybe I should chuck my initial idea and do this! Then I read something else and want to add or subtract or otherwise modify what I am doing
You can see my problem, right? I've taken what is a relatively simple task and overthought it and over complicated it. Why the hell do I do this to myself?
