Brand New World

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.

Enter the Heroes
Cermony to the crypt

The small town of Kassen has flourished for over 400 years. In honor of their founder Kassen (in which the town is named) a ceremony every few years. The mayor gave a glorious speech and when the call for heroes was made, 5 your adventurers stepped forward. A cleric, a ranger, and a fighter born and raised in Kassen along with a rogue and paladin passing through town. The cleric took on the responsibility to carry the sacred lantern to hold the Flame of Kessen. After receiving gifts and supplies from the Mayor, the heroes set out on their journey.

The first encounter was 3 orcs that blocking the path. The paladin and ranger quickly realized that these orcs were merely illusions, and the ranger even caught a faint scent of some plant burning nearby. After a brutal final blow by the paladin, the heroes continued their journey.

The ranger’s map reading skills were a great resource, and kept everyone on track. As the sun set, the paladin located a sheltered place to make camp for the night. During the night though a pack of wolfs attacked. The ranger tried her best to befriend the wolves to avoid conflict, but these wolves were starving and wanted a easy kill. After a brutal battle, the ranger reluctantly ended the fight with her dagger.

At first light the heroes continued the journey to the crypt. They encountered a beautiful lake along the way. Taking in the scene a body was noticed on the shore. With improper assessment of the body’s condition the Cleric attempted mouth to mouth resuscitation on the corpse. He quickly realized his mistake and began to vomit. While everyone was distracted by the vomiting, the rogue looted the body.

Further down the path to the crypt the heroes came across a steep hill. in the process of climbing down the cleric, fighter, and ranger slipped off the rope. Luckily for everyone the ranger took her own rope down and is a quick thinker. She heroically swung over on her rope to catch the cleric and fighter before they fell too far.

Alas the heroes arrived to the crypt. To their surprise, they found horses slain at the opening. after further inspection an skeleton was found underneath a horse and supplies were taken from the saddlebags. The rogue attempted to decipher some ancient text on the outside of the tomb before moving onward.

Not knowing what is ahead, the heroes bravely entered the tomb to retrieve the flame of Kessan.
