HOW DOES IT WORK?
In a typical campaign, it’s possible for the characters to start at 1st level, dive into an epic story, and reach 10th level and beyond in a short amount of time. While that pace works fine for many campaigns, some DMs prefer a campaign with pauses built into it—times when adventurers do things other than go on adventures. By introducing downtime activities that take weeks, months, or even years of effort, you can give your campaign a longer timeline that allows events in the world to play out over the course of years.
Don’t you want to play D&D during the times when you’re not around the table? What if you dedicated 5 minutes of your time every day to checking in on your character, like your RPG version of a Tamagotchi pet? Instead of playing whatever casual game, you can have your Dwarf create “The Crusher”, a custom war hammer, and keep tabs on the status with your DM. When it’s finished crafting, you could coordinate with the Tiefling wizard in your party to enchant it, sharing the costs and time requirements, so that when the downtime session is over and you’re all gathered together for the next adventure you’ve kept the party working together and have some cool rewards to show for it.
