from Milbrook to Rhye-on-Sow and beyond.
Midsummer's Eve
Our adventure begins

Midsummer’s Eve was aways celebrated in the town of Ferricworth but this year was going to be special. Something was found in the mines that was going to be unveiled to interested nobles and help put the town back on the map.

The morning of Midsummer’s Eve two strangers walked into town, Captain Fiona Brightstone and Content Not Found: null, to come see the artifact. They joined up with the party and made friends. The artifact was a sword weilded by an knight from the previous age. Another artifact was found that day which was a staff weilde by that same knight.

That evening the town was attacked by zombies with an unliving knight with them. Most of the town was slaughtered but the unliving but the party escaped with the survivers and fled to Millbrook. Henry exhausted himself to create the tunnel for people to escape and Fiona used all her ammo fendng off as many of the zombies as she could.

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.
