Giantslayer Test

9-8-17 Session Recap
Footprints in the Mud

Some quick notes about last session:

  • Recovered much treasure from the Vault of Thorns
  • Followed a trail of dwarf-sized footprints through the swamp
  • The footprints ended in a trampled area and did not exit, but orc/giant tracks did
  • Fought a shambling mound and some crocodiles while trekking back to the Chelish Devil
  • Got good and drunk with the ship's crew, with Bodgins and Halrex forming an unlikely bond and Raag renewing his friendship with Scarlett
  • The party has arrived at the dropoff point, spending the journey poring over an old map of the fort provided by Calrienne Blix and forming entry plans
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.
