Just Around the Corner

Adventure 1: Walter Corbitt and the Obsidian Silhouette

To: A-Cell
From: Ms. Green-4, Gamma Cell
Observation Report

The local feds picked up my next target. I spotted them snooping around the Chapel of Contemplation. They were looking into the kidnapping of Deborah Rhymes. I have to say, these kids got a lot farther than I would have with their experience level. I guess there’s strength in numbers. I’m going to keep an eye on them. If five people with heavy armaments can’t survive a single madman, I’ll help them, but forget about them. But if they do, well, I’m supposed to have partners in Gamma Cell, right?

The newbies had a run-in with a cultist. The last one from the Chapel’s golden days. He’s dangerous, but I think Hammer Cell and I managed to whittle his bag of tricks down considerably. I cornered him into his little hiding spot; I knew that I wouldn’t be able to take him out in a well of concentrated craziness. But the kids stumbled in and flushed him out. The moron followed them home. They were very heavily armed and they slept in shifts; they tore right through his wards and sent him running. I finished the job.

Too bad about their car, though. Maybe I can pull some strings. I mean, the parts are all there, he just deconstructed it. On that note, any orders, or am I still up to my own discretion?


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.
