First off, this would be my first time DMing a game on this site, just want to put that out there. I have played in quite a few games on this site and others and feel im ready to step up and try on the mantle of DM. If anyone would like to help and Co-DM that would be much appreciated. Pm me if interested.
So the campaign Idea goes like this. The players are members of the army of a nation that has been at war for a short time with a vast empire trying to swallow up all its neighbors. You have been assigned to a special task force dedicated to doing specialized missions to aid in the war effort(I.e weaken enemy forces before an assault, kill off important commanders/spellcasters, damage the infrastructure of the empire). This Empire is the classic evil empire with slave trade and ruled by a group of priests of a dark god. The missions will be strategic, and will require rudimentary tactics at a minimum.
Imagine a dragon flying over a military encampment and dropping 4 troops with feather fall cast, with the mission of killing the commander and then getting an airlift out(maybe teleporting out, depends on the level).
