A New Begining
Night 1

Having just decided to quit the wandering circus and join up with some like-minded adventurers, Foos asked a favour of V and Lily. If they could go to Upbourne and meet Gundren Rockseeker, he should have a job for them.

The group decides that money is needed to fund their grand adventure and head to Upbourne and meet with Gundren the dwarf. He explains to the party that he found ‘something big’ and he need the party to escort a load of mining goods to the frontier town of Carmel. He will pay them 10gp each for this service. When the party agreed Gundren left Jesserton with Sildar Hallwinter, a Peacekeeper, a day ahead of the party.

The party had left Upbourne on the High Road and their trip was largely uneventful until they turned onto the Triboar trail. After about half a day on the trail they came across the dead horses belonging to Gundren and Sildar. The horses were killed by goblin arrows. Possibly from the same bows that sprang an ambush on the party! The group was able to kill the ambushers without letting any escape. Once that was done they searched the dead horses only to find empty saddle bags and an empty leather map case.

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.
