The beginning

Our adventurers shipwrecked on a deserted island, well, it was not deserted but looked like it. They were visited by undead, and Pixies, and happy dancing trees.
Little did they know that acquiring a ship on the island was easy, but who they liberated it from and then burnt it in the harbor, made someone more upset than a two headed snake.
Hooknose the Pirate Lorde vowed to find this band or miscreants and make them pay for the ship and a hold full of silver ore, resting at the bottom of the harbor docks.

The band has traveled up the road to the north to a new city. They they have set up an adventuring company and enlisted a paying job from the steward of the city. Renting the entire third level of the inn, they have set up a good repore with the city of 10,000 people and the local tradesmen.
An paying quest has led them to a cave in the hills just off the path inland about 3 miles. In it they have found a bunch of bandits and unknown to them, an undead. The undead paid them a little head, but was not intentionally worried, and let his brigade die, and escape to fight another day.

Welcome to your campaign!
A blog for your campaign

Wondering how to get started? Here are a few tips:

1. Invite your players

Invite them with either their email address or their Obsidian Portal username.

2. Edit your home page

Make a few changes to the home page and give people an idea of what your campaign is about. That will let people know you’re serious and not just playing with the system.

3. Choose a theme

If you want to set a specific mood for your campaign, we have several backgrounds to choose from. Accentuate it by creating a top banner image.

4. Create some NPCs

Characters form the core of every campaign, so take a few minutes to list out the major NPCs in your campaign.

A quick tip: The “+” icon in the top right of every section is how to add a new item, whether it’s a new character or adventure log post, or anything else.

5. Write your first Adventure Log post

The adventure log is where you list the sessions and adventures your party has been on, but for now, we suggest doing a very light “story so far” post. Just give a brief overview of what the party has done up to this point. After each future session, create a new post detailing that night’s adventures.

One final tip: Don’t stress about making your Obsidian Portal campaign look perfect. Instead, just make it work for you and your group. If everyone is having fun, then you’re using Obsidian Portal exactly as it was designed, even if your adventure log isn’t always up to date or your characters don’t all have portrait pictures.

That’s it! The rest is up to your and your players.
