Forgotten Realms

In the beginning

The agreeable scent of fried breakfasts greet you as you make your way into the common area of the inn.
The Hullybuck’s Gamble in Berdusk is a maze of corridors and passageways linking up a variety of former warehouses and tall houses, but you’ve had a pleasant enough night there. So you should because although it’s by no means luxurious, city prices and a juggling festival starting tomorrow have bumped the price and made a small hole in your coin bag.

Not to worry though, you have work! And work that pays well too!
It was only yesterday that you met Cade in the Lonelycoins tavern bemoaning your lack of funds over a pint. And luckily he was in the market for hiring.

He works for some wine merchant called Mr Pashar that’s going on a trip to Greenest about 4 days wagon ride away from here. Nothing to worry about, but he wants some protection for the journey just in case. 5gp a day for following a merchant around for a few days sounds like easy money!

Cade even put you up in the inn and breakfast’s included. Better hurry up, in half an hour Cade will be here with his boss to pick you up!

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.
