Since a couple people requested it yesterday, so I've gathered my notes and I'm posting a summary from a campaign I ran a while ago called World Eater. It was a large arc in an ongoing campaign in a worldgen of my own design, and it took about a full year to play through. Granted, this is largely because we play entirely online and admittedly, things go much more slowly than in person. Further, because we don't all live in the same time zone, sometimes just finding the time to play was difficult, and there would be long stretches with no progression.
For as long as this campaign arc is, I'll try to trim it down as much as possible while still maintaining all the details that made it worth playing.
Though this campaign took place in a unique worldgen, it could easily be adapted to a traditional D&D-style setting, or any other world, as needed. I'm sure the proper analogs are all there.
I'll do my best to address the wishes and questions of anyone interested.
