Journeying with the poor and stupid

Entry 1:
Quentis talks slowly. Such a bore. I’m ready to make some money. Our group consists of an idiot barbarian, a tiefling, and an elf. Hopefully the elf can provide some sort of semblance of high-brow conversation.


Entry 2:
How is it that the barbarian speaks Goblin? Ridiculous. Regardless, this dwarf problem should be easy to deal with. Time to set off. Adventure awaits!

Entry 3:
We’ve encountered some dwarves. They look suspicious. Also, the eavesdropped. I’m not being biased towards dwarves, I was suspicious of them before they eavesdropped.


Entry 4:
A troll stole a baby; such a filthy creature. I’m beginning to like the barbarian. He listens somewhat.


Entry 5:
We defeated the troll. Dok was pretty kickass and I was a whirling, sword-slinging machine. We rescued the baby too. No money reward, though.


Entry 6:
Hotboxed my helmet again.


Entry 7:
Troll came back. I did a sick flip, in full fucking armor!, and speared that bitch with two javelins. Then the others burnt it, which is apparently what we were supposed to be doing. Valil and I took care of the troll’s head. This is awesome. Adventuring is a blast!

Entry 8:

We’re making camp for the night.


Entry 9:

Woke up to a fire. Great. Wouldn’t have happened on my watch, lemme tell ya.


Entry 10:
Saved a flaming cart. Valil bought a straw doll. Pervert.


Entry 11:

I’m supposed to remember a shop called Tiny’s Wares.


Entry 12:

Went to sleep. For real this time. I took first watch and, as it should have been from the beginning, it was uneventful.


Entry 13:

Doc has a shoulder goblin.


Entry 14:

Came across an ogre guarding a bridge. I am not falling for this nonsense. Paid a gold and got across.


Entry 15:

Ogre’s name is Twowrote.


Entry 16:

We’ve been walking and chatting. Talking about our pasts. It’s chill. Valil’s a douche though. A peasant douche, no less.


Entry 17:

Vezryn tried to put a woman with a broken leg out of her misery. Wtf? And then Doc smashed her leg up even worse. It was nuts.


Entry 18:

Valil is the violent brute I expected him to be. He slapped me, but I refused to hit him back. Bet the fool thinks that means he won. Helios would respect my decision.


Entry 19:

Aw crap, we forgot about the dwarves.

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.
