Obsidian Tower

Just the tip of the Iceberg
10-19-14

The daily routine was disrupted by a small portion of obsidian jutting out of the earth and causing a small quake. Some looters, who were based in the abandoned part of the mines, took advantage of the pandemonium, but were aptly stopped by The Blue Serpent, Thoros Thunderspire, and Faya. Kyr pulled some people to safety and helped to rebuild.

The bandits were turned into the authorities and the heroes were awarded a small stipend of 10 gold each.

The party learned that this obsidian spire had been growing, and the dwarfs mining it had hoped to keep it from damaging the surface by mining it faster than it grew. Unfortunately, their calculations were off and this obsidian spire has now broken the surface in the middle of town.

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.
