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.


Last session was our group’s first session.

Archibald woke to find himself captured in a cave by a group of kobolds, with Morgan in the adjacent cell. After breaking out they proceeded to fight their way through the cave of kobolds, almost dying a few times.

Eventually they made their way to the end boss of the cave, a larger kobold giving all the orders. They fight and eventually kill all of the kobold minions, Morgan was knocked out by the large one by this time. Once all of his minions are defeated the larger kobold transformed into a small doppelganger and tried to talk his way out of the situation he was in while screaming about how his “army of dragons” has been defeated. Archie wanted nothing to do with it and whipped the creature across the face. Upon being struck again and close to death the doppel ran as fast as he could out of the cave.

After beating the kobolds the group then proceeded to the nearby small village of Thrall’s Point. Archie immediately B-lined it to the tavern, and started putting alcohol back like it was nothing. Eventually he gets into a barfight with 3 other prize fighters and wins, gaining the group quite a bit of cash and catching the attention of a monk named Victor. Victor tells Archie about how he should go to a monk stronghold towards the north and train there to better hone his skills.

And that is where we stopped for the night.
