I updated my D&D 4 campaign blog yesterday, discussing the town I've selected as our starting point in the game. It took a while to come up with, but I found an interesting town in Lebanon that looks to be ideal for the first adventure. I'll be running Keep on the Shadowfell, and this town actually has a keep. Historically, I've mushed all this towns history together to come up with some re-mythologized D&D stuff that works for us. If you're a player, you can let your imagination run a bit wild now when thinking up your character background.
