That Phandalin Campaign

Run in with Hell Hounds
Melifus is dead!

Conditions IRL: Jason couldn’t play this night so I killed off his character.

Events from the session:

After taking refuge in front of Barthen’s dilapidated house in Irv’s version of Phandalin, the adventurers awoke in the middle of the night to the sound of teeth on bones and growling. The strange sounds were coming from the tall grass. Longshaft is the first to approach the grass. He sneaks directly in to it and lays eyes on to the tall, fire breathing dog like creatures. There were two of them. He knocks an arrow, lets it loose but the shot was premature. It flies directly in to a tree about 20ft away from the dogs. They hear this and go to investigate. Kithri and Grah sneak closer around the edge of the tall grass. Longshaft gets closer and examines the body. It is indeed an elf wearing the same clothing that Melifus was wearing earlier in the night.

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.
