The dark ones

I sometimes forget what it is like to be around my own people and everytime I have contact I remember why I’m not working a river barge back home. To be honest, the dark ones are not my people but they have some similar qualities that make me cringe.
The reason we are working with them is that they seem to be plagued by lack of water. the rive has dried up and any that go to investigate do not return. Guess what we are going to do? Investigate!

Hopefully, we can solve the issue without too much trouble…and gargoyles will fly out of my bum.

The power of tattoo


The bat is the night hunter, the whisper that sees in darkness and spies on us all. I got the tattoo in Brest, France from a gypsy woman. I asked for a connection…a key to other places. I did not ask for a bat but that is where we wound up. The incense was heavy and and the night was a blur but I felt the bat before it was on my arm. This is control….this is power…and it wasn’t the french gypsy; It was the permanence, the sacrifice. It was my first and I had no guide when I made the ‘connection’. I think that first time that I was lucky.

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.
