First Game

Well we finally got started. I felt the first game went pretty well. We had a couple issues with the combat. I think I did a bad job providing a couple details, but everything else went well.

The game started out with roll playing the group decided that they needed to hold a meeting to decide weather or not they were going to take the land routed to the Ahriac Empire or the sea route. Oddly enough they chose the land route.

About three days into the adventure they were attacked by a band of six assassins who had disguised themselves as elves. This battle was a little one sided, but a good feeler to see what it is going to take to make a challenge for the PC’s.

Through some creative interrogation they determined that the assassins were a part of a larger group that was some two days ride away. They continued on and at last came to a large guard tower. The place was deserted aside from corpses that had been burned recently in a terrible fire. The tower was investigated and a crown was discovered.

There was quite a bit more traipsing through the mountains. The group encountered a very sleepy dragon, and went past it quite handlely.

Wrapped up the first adventure with the group coming out of the mountains into the Ahriac Empire.

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.
