The Duke's Gambit

The Story So Far...

The party has met and gathered some allies these last few days at a military camp near the mages tower. They were originally commissioned by Duke Aelfred Bu’Kor. The party is consistent of Karsa Orlong the Half-Orc Barbarian, Grunther the Dwarven Cleric, Godrick Barandis the Human Ranger, Gally the Halfling Sorcerer, Niel the Dandyflan Gnomish Bard, Hyldor the Half-Elven Rogue, and Nodyrb Aehs the human fighter. They have contracted the help of Brother Jospeh Stiff from the Church of Ba’hatmut. They registered their adventurering band as “Notorious Beast Bashers”, though Niel seems to think it’s actually “Notorious Best Buddies”…no one has corrected him. They have cleared the first level of the tower but were stopped from seeking a treasure chest because of a barred gate which would not budge. They released a Nymph, who showed Niel some favour, but was attacked by a jealous Nordyrb.

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.
