Session 1
Dragons don't mix well with boats.

The party engaged in some light-hearted troublemaking aboard the Breaking Wind (yes, there were puns) before progressing with their evening. Disaster struck and they were forced to fend off a hand full of what appeared to be pirates. Their defense was successful when they broke the boat tethers and eliminated the boarders. Not quite content with simply limping away from a fight, the party and crew of the now de-masted Breaking Wind decided to take the fight to them, boarded one of the attacking ships, and slew a leader of the pirate band. The leader was only identified as having a connection to the Southern Break bandits, and their not-quite-sane gnome prisoner shared no helpful insight. Towards the latter half of the fight, the unnamed prisoner and her two guards evacuated the Breaking Wind only to be thrust once more into the water when two Stewards (dragons) collided with their ships during a legendary battle.

Waking up nearly a day later and over 100 miles from where they last have memory, the party immediately sought shelter and rest. In a turn of events that may or may not have happened, Silverfrond managed to persuade a hungry owlbear to eat something other than his companions. A few days and a pack of wolf spiders later, the party found themselves amongst a settlement of somewhat racist halflings and have enlisted their services to Lordling Tiddle, the local regent, in dealing with a wurm problem. Meanwhile, Stein began training at a brothel, Doru Von Brandt made a habit of bullying the local bullies, and (Whittle won’t give me his character name) made a friend.

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.
