Session Synopsis:

The party began play in the Karrnathi city of Korth during the Festival of the Twelve, a trade expo for researchers at the tower of the Twelve in the heart of the city. Toward the closing of the exposition several PC’s noticed the odd behavior of two cloaked men near the bar cart and proceeded to investigate. In the ensuing interaction Rianna observed one of the cloaked men lift a envelop bearing a Dragonmark seal from an human man who appeared to have stumbled. Rianna attempted to steal the documents only to be caught and drawn into combat with the individual despite the attempts of Kim to diffuse the situation.

Meanwhile, utilizing the distraction, Cairn lifted some tips from the local barmaid who soon began to frantically wave two handcrossbows at her patrons. Cairn attempted to stop her be tossing a sword her direction, an action which attracted the fool attention of the local patrol and allowed one of the cloaked men to escape.

Locked in combat the second man, whom Wildhorse identified as a Shifter, was unable to escape due to the joint efforts of Wildhorse and Rianna. Cairn attempted to escape the guard only to be knocked out by the sergeant.

Despite their help in defeating one assailant, and the Sergeant’s fascination with Kim, the guards ordered everyone to surrender their weapons and the party now stands in danger of arrest.

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.
