Running Mini Campaigns

Back in 2008, Phil "The Chatty DM" Menard wrote the article Afterschool Tropes Special: The Campaign as a British TV Series that changed how I run D&D. A long campaign can fizzle out for many reasons. DM fatigue, bored players, or a change in scheduling can break up even the best campaign. Instead of waiting until a campaign fizzles out, why not rescope your campaign into one designed to fit into the limitations of our time and energy.
