Goblin Caves
Messengers Delayed

Here is an (extremely) succint description of what happened last time we left off.

You, the party, were traveling from a hamlet that is part of Clan Orion to the clan council in Prinde. All of you were born into the clan, and have family and friends within it. You were carrying a message from the leader of the hamlet to the council regarding the recent aggression by a previously unencountered clan, with an unusual emblem (I will add an illustration of this emblem as soon as I may draw one up.)

On the first night of your journey, you were rudely awakened by a horde of goblins, tied up, and carried as a group to their caves, where you were knocked unconcious.

On awakening, you found yourself in a small prison, guarded by 2 goblins. Syvwlch, in order to alleviate the dim lighting cast Light on himself, which subsequently frightened the goblins, one of whom was dispatched to find the jailer. Upon the jailer’s entry, the party unleashed themselves. Within minutes, there lived no goblins in that room. With that, the party left, looting the daggers owned by the goblins.

Down the hall, they reached a room which contained a multitude of assorted clothes and equipment. Here they also found their own weapons. It was at this point that Codwallader transformed himself into a wolf, and the party continued. It was in the next room that the party met another 6 goblins, recuperating in the Guard Lounge. Here, after one death, the remaining 5 goblins reconvened on the other side of the room, luring Codwallader into a trap, which injured him as well as trappedhim in a large spike pit. However, this served only to delay their fate. After finishing the goblins, they entered the throne room. Finding the king gorging himself on a personal feast, the party took the opportunity to surprise him, and quickly defeated him without a hitch.

During the following investigation of the room, the party discovered a letter detailing their description and orders to detain them. This was signed with the same rune of the aggressing clan.

Upon exiting the caves, you saw you were in an abandoned barrow off the road. Indeed, you saw a company of horseriders heading down the road just ahead of your position. They appear to be flying your clan’s banner.

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.
