Sands of Destruction

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.

A Strange Thing
Devon's recount

Today's venture to selling this unusually dragonshard took strange turn, but let me start from the beginning.  

I met with my usually buyer, Saldar down in the harbor district.  He was curious about the stone's strange color as I was. He wanted to call for a expert, but had recently run into trouble a 'new' group interfering with his members.   

He requested that I run an errand for him with some others, to ensure another group was still on his side.   The other two that tag along, seem useful enough to complete the task.   

While investigating an entrance to the 'Kingdom Below', walked into a sewer interested with a torch… No one was harmed, but I did find a receipt on a corpse. 

Visiting another entrance we were escorted by kobold that goes by the name of Flesk to visit Igor Ratski, leader of the 'Kingdom Below'.  We had a little trouble with a drunk troll. The female catfolk was a useful distraction, the strange cloak man just mostly stood there. I made the troll submit quickly. 

We spoke with Igor and discovered he was having a similar issue with his underlings going missing.  Again we were requested to investigate, then we would show is allegiance to Saldar. 

During our investigation we came across a trapped room, but I quickly disabled the roo, childs play really.  In the next room, we came across a strange fixture that teleported us into a storage room.  Nothing that could be lifted quickly, but there was a well persevered corpse in there.  

We did run into a small altercation outside the storage room, rabble that was barely worth the effort. The cloaked stranger Lex did something strange, he appeared to have absorbed one of the defeated men. I'll have to keep a close eye on him. 

Eventually we made our reports back to both Igor and Saldar.  As for the dragonshard, I came to the conclusion to hold onto it for the time being. There seems to be something else going on.

Day 2

Begin journal entry - 

Day 2 on my quest set for me. I have since encountered many people, few who interest me. As I am on my quest I am in need of supplies to better my equipment to help me. The people who I am "traveling" with are helpful in tagging people but they seem to need help with their personal life. I am still debating helping them when i am done with my quest. I will help them until my quest is completed and im able to return. They do seem suspicious of what im trying to do but they have not tried to stop me yet. So far i have tagged 3 people 1 who was much stronger than the rest and gave me a hard time. The more strong people we tag the closer i am to being done with this quest and returning. 

Souls tagged – 3

This concludes my progress report.

- End journal entry
