The Northern Realms

The Road to Still Fall

Our intrepid adventurers—Spencer, Phranx, Dudmund, Nurok, and Thedoran—have been on the road for several fortnights with the merchant caravan of the prickly Master Goft. All have been hired on as bodyguards, healers, or other helpful positions. After sharing a comforting pot of tea, the caravan came under attack by a group of unusually aggressive bandits. After the bulk of them were defeated, three bandits retreated to tell the tale of the battle. As the caravan moved from the pass where they were attacked, Liffi noticed that shadows came out of the mountainside and dragged the bodies away. At a tavern in Still Fall, the party spoke to Master Goft and the arl of Still Fall, agreeing to look into the bandit situation at first light.

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.
