An alchemist's pathway.

Why hello, yes, we remember you, you were the ones who… yes.

Oh. no there wasn’t anyone who came back from that, that we’re aware of. Though I really don’t understand what they were going to do there anyway. Was it war? As I say. it makes no real sense as to what an armed column was doing going out that way.

Lights in the sky and what? Oh no, that never happened. I really don’t know what you’re talking about. Look, we don’t know what you’re referring to, no need to be like that.

Well it’s ok, but that never happened. I’m sure we’d remember if it did.

The only other information we’ve heard is that there seems to be increased hostilities from Our neighbour to the South, but I never did trust the empire, anyone who could dictate behaviour to it’s peoples is not something that exactly inspires trust.

A beginning...

Many bright lights were observed to be in the sky, some said they were bad spirits, others claimed they were stars that came to life, others came up with their own theories about the gods or other things, but one thing we could all agree upon, the strangest thing was happening in the heavens above our home, and above the home of possibly every living being on our world.

Every night they would dance and shine with the occasional flash of star light. Some times we’d see them go racing off in a straight line as if bearing some divine message with a hurried speed beyond any mortal may ever attain. It felt magical and wondrous to some, others painted signs on the outsides of their window shutters and doors during the day light, to ward off the evil that was heralding the end of the world.

Then it happened on the third night, a great flash lit the horizon as if the sun were rising, for a full span of heartbeats it remained like that. I remember being able to see my grandfather’s face as clearly as if it were day. As I tell you stranger, that’s when it all stopped. The dance of the gods servants came to an end in that one glorious moment.

Many of us went to bed that night with expectation heavily upon our breaths and in our breasts, I wanted to dance in the heavens with them. Many also breathed a sigh of relief, and in the following days came upon their ease of life as they had known it before that all began.

Now you stand before me asking about such as that which happened and everything thereafter, and all I might wish to add for your search is that a troop of republic knights with a witch finder passed through a day or so later, on their way towards where the sun lit the night, who can say why or if they will return this way, for that was over a week after the mystical display in the sky.

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.
