The Jade Circus

Out of the Swamp

Having destroyed the Licktoad Goblin tribe and burned the old fort they had taken over, the unlikely group has made it’s way home to Sandpoint to lick their wounds, check in with friends and family, and claim the reward for the ears they collected along with the bounty on Chief Gutwad’s head. While incredibly startled at the sheer volume of goblins slain by the party, Sheriff Hemlock has gratefully paid, though he rather wishes their methods had not included unsupervised arson and is mounting a patrol to check that the blaze has not spread. Aching and exhausted, Ameiko has opened her manor to anyone who needs a place to stay. Requesting that the group reconvene the next night at her tavern, The Rusty Dragon, she has since since limped to the local fortuneteller’s house to request healing from an old friend, accompanied by Zork and with Maya in tow. Demyan went on the hunt for the owner of a wedding ring found on a goblin’s thumb, while the rest of the group has scattered to spend their newfound wealth and rest.

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.
