Round-robin Campaign

Private Journal of Sir Cormac of the Black Rock

Once again we have been forced to retreat from the dark corridors of the abandoned temple. Tough we faced but a handful of cowardly goblins, they proved most difficult to dispatch, for they kept running away. Bravely I took the lead in following them, taking several arrow wounds in the process, but they were truly nothing but minor scratches. What was more worrisome is when the floor of the tunnel gave way beneath my feet. Luckily I was able to keep from being buried in the rubble, and free to continue my pursuit of the goblins.

After the last of the enemy was killed, and little Shamrock restored me to fighting strength, we decided to investigate the doorway we had seen earlier. We did not get very far, for just a few feet inside was an intersection. Odin investigated one passage, that ended shortly in a storage room, while I took the other way, and found a well. As I was leaving the well, to my surprise a spider the size of a wolf leapt at me from within. I called for my companions, and we face the monstrosity together. Odin received a bite which we soon learned was poisonous. Shamrock lit the spider ablaze, and it was soon thereafter destroyed. We espied something glittering at the bottom of the well amid the carcasses of the spider’s previous meals, and Shamrock displayed unexpected courage for one of such small stature, and volunteered to go retrieve it. Unfortunately, in doing so she became deathly ill, and necessitated our retreat back to Owen and the camp. We stayed in the woods for a day or two while our little one nursed herself back to health with the help of our tagalong herbalist.

On another note, two elves have joined our party, one vacant and stinking of wildlife, the other at least is brave enough to scout ahead and fearless join me and Odin on the front lines of combat.

Tomorrow we plan to go back into the tunnels, to see if there are stairs down to the level I discovered when the floor fell. I am going to leave the bowl with Owen this time, as the damned howling is quite annoying.

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.
