Island Paradise

Adventure Recap #1

Concerning adventure 1 from 5/22/14

The players encountered Varl, knight commander of Kolm and signed up as the next group to travel to the island to investigate it’s sudden and mysterious appearance. Also of note, the towns people seem to be fed up with the steady flood of adventuring folk passing through their lands.

The last group of adventurers to leave the mainland had only left that morning and the knight commander is giving each and every group a one week window in which to gain as much information as possible and return. Since a group had just left that same morning, the party has been asked to ascertain information about a certain small band of adventurers which have gone missing one month prior. This comes as a more personal request from Varl, as it is his wife’s cousins family.

The group traveled to Oakhurst to find and rescue (if need be) the would-be group of spelunkers. Just one days ride from Oakhurst the party found an old and much abandoned town once called Chapple Hill, built by a once flourishing monastery dedicated to Ashdarlon, Ancient Dragon of old. Thus our faithful party sets out to investigate the old ruins of this once proud town and learn its fate.

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.
