Beginning adventures
You all met. How you want this to have played out is open to me but I shall assume you all had some taste for adventure and decided to follow all those stories you hear about Adventuring Parties. After meeting you have found your adventures so far to be lackluster. After the last task of searching for the lost goat you thought maybe going back to your former careers. Relaxing in a small town tavern drinking the watered beer and eating roast goat, when a Dwarf rambles up and introduces himself as Ivan Orlov of the Silver Anvil mercenaries. he buys you all a bottle of the good stuff and some cheese and bread to go with the goat meat. He tells ow the company is currently up North fighting the Orc Lord and his horde. How they need good men for fighting and good adventurers to take on those hard to do tasks. He hands them a silver token bearing the symbol of a forge. Take this to Axis and head to the barracks district. There you can show this coin and gain admittance. He tells of the benefits, the pay, the Dwarven made weapons and armor. He gives you a small pouch of gold to see you on the way to Axis, which is 3 days north of your current position. So begins your adventure.
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.
