On the Horizon

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.

Session 3
Late-night Vermin spotting, Book Reading, and a Funeral

Returned to Temple in Town, found infirmary full of insects and rats, only patient was the first mate.

Pulled first mate out into main room. Tried to wake up Sister Clara, but door locked and no response.

[Bard] and [Barbarian] looked at sarcophagus in crypt, old paladin with sword and shield.

After waiting for dawn to arrive, we saw that the insects and rats turned into patients in the infirmary – including the dead corpse Billy.

After talking to Sister Clara about this, went back to Inn to sleep for a few hours, then [Sorc] and [Barbarian] stayed in common area of Inn. [Sorc] combed over the Ritual Book found in the mines to figure out the spells being used. [The Bard] journeyed to Billy’s Funeral.

The spell was found, it involves casting a spell on a small insect and then giving it a target. Once the insect burrows into the target it lays a spell causing him/her to turn into a swarm. This swarm can then bite other humans causing them to turn into swarms after the next New Moon who can infect others, after that all infected turn every night from 3AM – DAWN.

A reversal spell was discovered between Sister Clara and [Sorc] which included an “arcane containment” ritual and a holy cure ritual to be cast at the same time. However, this would require an amulet assumed to be with the original caster – Gruul.

Session 2
Orcs, Fire, and Portal Stones - O My!

Clara set up teleport back to town. (Left with drunk miner back to town)

Found Orc Barracks/Sleeping quarters. Fought, killed orc and minions. Found various potions / oils in sleeping quarters along with a ritual book and a letter for ‘Gruul’.

Found old stone portal:: [Sorc] able to activate.

Visited following locations:

  1. desert boulder
  2. orc lord compound (killed orc caster and minion there – took bodies back to desert)
  3. back to mine cave

Noticed different locations gave a different “color” to portal. Took teleport circle back to town temple.

Ended back in temple in town, hear “skittering” outside

Party Theorized:
Orcs using portals to infiltrate mine, Gruul is being tasked to “transform” the villagers in town. Evidence of polymorphism rituals and other dark rituals in area.

Possible that “Gruul” the orc shaman is still at large.
