What is a campaign achievement?
It is a predefined goal that the players must achieve in game. In video games for instance, a player may earn them just playing thru the game, but some can only be earned with very specific circumstances, thus giving the player some sort of self satisfaction, or a way to impress other gamers with their “gamer score”
Today we will discuss how achievements can be constructed to be added to a D&D game by being enticing, meaningful for players. Often times, achievements are used to convince players to go out of their way to do things they wouldn’t normally do. This is a great way to figure out what is important to each player.
The goal is to increase player loyalty, motivations and interest in the campaign in addition to adding a new layer to their fun. I love when players come up with extremely creative solutions to problems, or come up with a unique solution, or just go out of their way to have a “cool” moment. Achievements can encourage that sort of behavior.
