GM of Pyren
Why? Because he was so enthralled with my brother's campaign that he'd come early to soak up all the details. Who the major nobles were, rumors of distant wars, court intrigue... you name it.
And these world details were often relevant to the adventure we were on.
While crawling through a dungeon, we'd come across a coat-of-arms. Sean would know which noble family it belonged to.
If we came across a shrine, he'd know which goddess it honored. And when we were in town and needed help, he'd know exactly which NPC to see.
So what was it about my brother's campaign that made it come alive for Sean and the rest of our group? The details and sense of history played a role, of course.
But what made it feel like a real world was how everything was interconnected: rivalries between NPC's, who the leaders of each city and baronry were, who created the major magic items, etc.
With Scabard's connections feature, you can capture this interconnectedness and make your world feel real. And turn your players into the type that cares about your world - not just leveling up.
Oh, and unlike Sean, they won't need to come an hour early to soak in all the details. Because in between sessions, your players are automatically updated on changes you've made to your campaign (except secrets, of course!)
