Joud's Journal Entry #1
Mundane Occurances and Strange Happenings
  • Hello there my dear journal,
  • Misery and woe today I’m afraid. This Lord Burgess character I have been tracking down seems to be a dead end. After infiltrating his mansion in the guise of a distressed merchant, I was unable to procure any information about his connection with Port Maw, other than “I’ve been there once.” The man was a complete buffoon, and more than a little ego centric, and I’m quite convinced he has nothing to offer me further.
  • Unfortunately, I got a little too caught up in my merchant role, and managed to convince that swine herder to give me reinforcements to handle an orc problem in the country side that I heard about downstairs in the Grey Griffon. Sadly, I have little interest in the affair of farmers and it will be more of a burden than anything, throwing me yet again off schedule. I was all set to board a ship out of this accursed place after hearing rumors about a Port Maw patrol guard arriving here, but I was intercepted by that blasted guard captain, Gray Filtch… Fitz… Flitzinhiem… Hell I don’t know his blasted name. He’s as dull witted as the rest of them in this town, but a good man as well I suppose.
  • Currently I am in my room, prepared to face the world as Joud again and perform for my nightly lodging. With luck I will go un-noticed by the guard and it will be a relatively mundane night.
  • Goodnight Journal, you old sod.
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.
