Working for the Baron

Ramas' Adventure Log, Session 1

O mighty Tharizdun, I pray that you hear this humble mortal’s words.

All goes well! Today the baron gave me an assignment: killing goblins. I think they kidnapped somebody important, and there was something about a catapult. Anyway, the important thing is I met a group of wonderful people, blinded by the high elves but ripe for conversion. Soon your worshippers will swell in number again – someday we may even have ten or twenty.

My power grows daily thanks to you, great Tharizdun. The other warriors are a skillful bunch, but I know I impressed them with my endless blasts of eldritch energy, for which I thank you every day. No goblin, nor the fierce spiders they have captured as mounts, dared to touch me – but there are many more to be killed, and whosoever lands the first blow against me shall be struck down in your name! My blood tingles at the thought. Not only this, but I have used the goblins’ own magic to call a being from another realm to slay them. The killing to come will be swift and beautiful.

Tharizdun, my master, I must end this communion and return to my companions. All praises be to you, and I seek the day you will be freed at last.

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.
