TARUK TOSSED HIS GEAR LADEN SATCHEL onto the soft grass at the side of the dirt trail that they had been following all day and slumped down on a log beside it. The weather had not been kind to them on this day and his boots were soaked clean through. He swatted a mosquito away from his pale grey skin and looked up towards the roiling, clouded sky. They still had three more days on the road and only enough food to last for two of them if they really stretched it. Farsel handed over her waterskin from her waist and knelt down beside him, patting his shoulder with a smile. He took a hearty slug of the cool liquid and nodded to her. He rose, slinging the heavy sack back across his broad shoulders. Just three more days. 

- Twisy Gingerbread, What the Others Did

Campfire is an elegant travel system created for D&D Fifth Edition. It provides a middle-ground between simply montaging travel and rolling for encounters on a table. It focuses on interesting skill usage, roleplay, and meaningful windfalls and hardships that last after travel. The system can resolve any travel in 15 minutes if you choose, or it can be expanded with many roleplay opportunities along the way.

Our goal was to create a streamlined system that gives travel weight without bogging down the rest of the gameplay. We truly hope you enjoy it.

Features Include: 

  • Resolves any travel in 15 minutes, yet can be expanded greatly with roleplay
  • Easily slots into any setting or adventure including official modules 
  • Promotes creative skill usage amongst your party
  • Designed to be scalable to full continent travel or across cities
  • Meaningful Windfalls & Hardships that last after the travel is over giving travel some weight without getting in the way

In This Download You Get: 

  • A 9-page full color PDF with beautiful art by Fernando Dominguez
  • A 7-page printable PDF for use at the table
  • A form-fillable PDF worksheet to keep track of travel

What an elegant solution to many of the problems facing the exploration pillar of D&D! For a full review, head here: https://podofblunders.com/2021/09/24/campfire/


The physical games category is for tabletop rpgs, putting this in the games category makes it only appear in video game searches.


Awesome, thanks for that. It's been updated!
