Adventures in Amaranthine

Hiding from the Storm
Session 1

Gurk, Lena, Maynard Peckham, Sir Mattias Erwin Hetz Solier and Sven were all resting in a cavern system where they were attacked by a cruel and malicious pack of Gnolls and Goblins led by the Hobgoblin Orzimhaz. The party defeated the Gnolls and Goblins and then met each other. After names were exchanged they encountered Orzimhaz who introduced himself as a general for the new Hobgoblin Amhal. He spoke of his mission to regain a hobgoblin artifact which would help the Amhal unite the Hobgoblins. Sir Mattias could not allow this and attacked Orzimhaz. The Hobgoblin with a single swing knocked Sir Mattias from his horse, the knight was on the ground bleeding out. Orzimhaz cleaned his blade on the knights tabbard and then force fed a potion of healing saying “One day we will fight again, and he will be at his best-” Sir Mattias woke up. “- And when that day comes i will kill you and it may mean something.”

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.
