The Worlds Ember

Session 1 31/1/2016
Entering the Crypt

Charged by the leader of The Slayers Ohama, 4 recruits head to the city Fallcrest to set up a base of operations.
Shortly after their arrival the party agrees to help Rohan Resh with some vandals that have been terrorizing the The Resht-Easy Inn. Rohan tells the group that he has witnessed the vandals coming and going from a crypt just south of the city.
In exchange for information about potential allies in their cause, as well as supplies and equipment, The party leave town by the southern exit until they arrive at an abandoned looking crypt just outside the city walls.
After inspecting some tracks suggesting recent activity they enter the crypt and quickly overpower the standing guards, but not until overhearing that they were paid by another to be there.
Wondering who this external benefactor could be, the group descends lower.
After an unfortunate incident involving a wayward arrow, and Tom’Allics back that Bayel absolutely insists had nothing to do with him. They encounter a group of cultists in the middle of some kind of dark ritual, the only clue is a symbol on the wall drawn in Blood, the symbol of the Ember.
Further within, the party encounters Ghouls, a tomb that looks like somebody tried real hard to get in – or perhaps get out, and a Zombie filled room with a schematic of a building that none recognize, as well as some messages between two correspondents: Alla’Tuk, and Jamang.

There is still more secrets yet to uncover in this dark place, but for now the party rests….

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.
