Seasons, Episodes, and Themes

Our campaign will be comprised of three main story arcs, which we will call “seasons”. Each arc is made of (notionally) five sessions, dubbed “episodes”. This is flexible, however, as player progress through an episode might take longer than a single session (I’m aiming for one session each, but…)
