Reign of Winter

Croupe's Journal 1

As I was poking around the newly liberated lodge it ocurred to me, all the great explorers had journals and who am I to deny to posterity my experience. As such this is the first of what is to be many posts on my current venture. It started swimingly with the addition of two new stalwart companions I met in the local tavern, I even got a lead on a potential backer, it seems a rich noble lady had gotten herself captured by bandits. If I could lead the rescue party to her surely that would prove my meddle and the grateful lady would become my patron. My newest sojourn started out fairly expediously with us making good time through the forest. I had heard rumours that the weather was getting unseasonably cold in the forest, but that wasn’t even close to the truth, there was actual snow mere days from the mid summer festival!


The forest itself was chalk full of danger, wern’t the rangers supposed to keep it moderatley safe? It was crawling with undead, giant frost breathing lizards, and swarms of murderous pixies. All this before we even got to the bandits holed up in the lodge


Needles to say I let nothing stop me from rescuing the fair damsel and rousting those foul brigands. Soon I’ll be leading the biggest expedition ever to pierce the mighty north!

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.
