Stolen Lands

That Time Tyler Stole Gold From Jeremy

Last week we saw our characters set out on their “Grand Adventure”, and probably their last. Some of them found out that you cant just assume a beaten cave, frog-like, creature isn’t going to bite you when you try to usher them away in shackles. Shackles that have been on His races hands and feat for ages. Sometimes a sick dog just has to be put down, and you did but with a nice chunk of your arm to pay. It all worked out, though. The Cleric of the group patched him right up. Your characters then made their way from the beach, up a hill, where they came to a fork in the road. Do we go to a conspicuous shack? Nope. As one character said “It looks upside down”. Reasoning all the same. Instead you found a party of Drow, out looking for more slaves. These might have been the same Drow that hurt the frog-man. Maybe they were part of a search party. Either way, you handled them with ease, except the one that got away. After the fight, sudden intuition steered you toward the shack where you found a sweet innocent girl who has lost both of her parents. After telling her story, she has agreed to come with this strange group and act as their tour guide to the village she is from.

Your characters landed on this beach with the mission of surveying the land. Do what you must to get it done. Or don’t and be hunted. You aren’t the only Cartographers in the Emperors Army.

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.
