The Adventure Begins
The Morbid And Drear

The town of Ratabaal is a quaint little hamlet that people come from. Most of the town is unremarkable and this is why you have found yourselves inside a tavern called, The Morbid And Drear. The flagstones underfoot are uneven, the the bar is wears the scars of thousands of tankards and the pervasive musk is both rich and tangy. It is, in short, a well loved and fantastic dive. Being early int he day there is only one other patron. A troll, hunkered on a creaking, old stool with a drink sitting in front of him. The barmen is wiping down the bar when you enter but upon seeing you grabs a tankard and starts to clean it. Slightly too quickly, he rattles it back in its place and then checks the taps on the barrels. In only a few seconds he is satisfied and starts to wipe down the bar again.

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.
