Dragons and Dungeons

First campaign (Reed Windfollows)
Encounter in Stoneport

So a couple of sailor types wandered into the tavern I was drinking at and gloated of some such treasure across the sea. I had been distracted by the bloody dragon patron and a little gnome donned in bear furs upon their entry, but even the faintest chance of coin was enough to at least pique my curiosity. Besides, too much competition in Stoneport, and my blades are getting rusty. So, along with a group of… merry fellows, I decided to accompany the sailor folk and left for their galleon docked at the pier.

Apparently the planets had aligned in such a way that we were ambushed from the sea by a damned octopus, while at the same time, the little bear gnome angered the fiercest and most belligerent of creatures! The shrubbery!

Jokes aside, I must say, that shrub did a number on the old gnome and me. Though in my defense, I was only a few drinks in. I left the tentacles to that dragon’s fire and helped the gnome take down the shrub. And wouldn’t you know it? The octopus wasn’t slayed by the dragon. Nor the elves who had came along with us. But by the gnome! It seems the lad is more than just a jester in bear furs.

Hopefully the same can be said about the others when the time comes. The world is a dangerous place for halflings with an itch the thieves’ itch!

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.
