Let's Play 5e with Friends

Night one
The adventure begins

Just the rough, I’m on an ipad and I’m drunk.

The adventurers meet as part of a merchant convoy led by Roger Pennyweather. All came in sight of the town of Greenest when it became clear that the town that was a destination for so many of you was under attack by some force that included a dragon.

The 4 originals Eliad, Hawkwind, Mara and Torvald dissolved your relationship with the caravan and moved towards Greenest to see what y’all could do. Also Mara bought a horse.

As you approached town, you saw that the dragon was blue, and was attacking the main keep, and that there we’re raiders pillaging the town.

The party decided to take the creek into town, and they did fine until they rounded a corner and were confronted by 6 cultists admiring their work on the farm they’d just looted. The team did ok, though Torvald took some knocks.

The team crossed the river where they fought off a group of 8 kobolds who were pursuing a family. Torvald really ate it here, but everyone made it out alive.

The party decided to see the family they’d just saved to the keep in the center if town, and the alost made it without a hitch, but another group of kobolds attacked. The party fought them off with only minimal damage to Torvald and then they made the keep just as the guards we’re deciding they’d raise the drawbridge as no more towns folk would be joining them.

The plot thickens.

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.
