The Divine Silence

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.

Adventure Log #1
Prison Break

Way back at some point in 2014, we ran our first session, which included Nick, Zach, and Ted (whose characters I will link when they are added to the campaign page). Each character ended up in a mining labor camp, after being captured by cloaked figures in Blackmount. After some quick witted actions by Wrench, the camp exploded into a fit of chaos, which saw Zach’s character (whose name escapes me) flee into the northern forest with most of the goblins in pursuit.

The general assumption is that this character was the sacrificial lamb, which now allows the party to continue unabated toward their next goal. We left as the numerous prison workers were freed from the chains holding them to their work tents. As such, the party will find three other characters (Nick, Trevor, and Zach’s new character), who are seeking to avenge their capture and reclaim their lost items.
