It's a Wonderful Life

It is odd, at times, to live in a town so utterly divided on a topic. Especially a topic as divisive as slavery. Nary a day passes without some visiting adventurer attempting to incite revolt or free the poor captives. All this posturing and white knighting is rather cute. Meanwhile, it’s business as usual for Kobad and the others, only occasionally does anything actually happen. At those times the constabulary are quick to act, generally tossing the instigators in the stocks, or in some cases turning them into stock themselves.

At any rate, it’s been the same old story as of late, working for a wage that barely covers the cost of living, clawing and wheedling ever onward. It’s pathetic really. Adventurers wander through town on occasion, spending coin they took from some corpse somewhere. Most are thugs, hardly more than bandits themselves, and living rough has little appeal for me, so it has been easy to resist the lure of adventure.

Until now. Kaera, a councilwoman in this little town, blithely passed out a rather heavy purse to each of six folk, myself included, gathered in the Hungry Efreeti as a down payment of sorts on a task. The reward for completing the task is even greater. I am certain the task will be fraught with danger, but this could be the break I need to finally get somewhere.


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.
