Alvenmar Champion

To Alvenmar
How my story began

He was old and wrinkly, but Escott’s memory was clear. The stories sounded fantastic, but of their truth, I was sure. Escott sold my father his first goods: 3 iron pots. And here stood I, maybe 30 or 40 years later, telling Escott of my plans to become a traveling merchant. Escott smiled bleakly, he knew as well as I that I couldn’t persuade anyone of anything, let alone to buy goods from me.

“Wait here a moment.” Escott croaked. He soon returned with an old bag and a few items under his arm.

“Your father sold me this bag. Charged much too much. There is some metal inside. It won’t be much after you’ve bought your supplies, but it should help you get started. Ah, and here, a couple of things your mother sold me. A grappling hook to help you get out of sticky situations, and a bedroll to keep you warm at night. It’s not much, but it should help you on your way.”

“Go to Alvenmar. There are a few craftsmen there you can get your first goods from. Be brave, but be wary. Your father’s bravery and your mother’s careful nature saved them many times.”

I nodded my head, I had heard stories of them from Escott many times. I smiled with joy as I walked out. I felt close to them in a way I never had before. I was now a traveler, and though I could not remember them, I got to see what they had once seen, and feel what they had once felt. Every step I took was a step they had once taken. I squared my shoulders. To Alvenmar then.

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.
