The Rift's Rogues

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.

The Knight of Newts
Castle Kraal Expedition 3

Bullzeye finished off the giant crocodile, after others (mostly Oromis Oleadr) had also wounded it extensively. It’s not know if the paralytic arrows (treated with juices from the carrion crawlers) had anything to do with the giant beast’s defeat. Bullzeye, at one point, climbed onto the belly of the floating body of the beast, and made sure it was dead by cutting its neck with his sword. Before he was able to do that (after crawling onto its body), he attacked another crocodile (this was the fourth normal crocodile they’ve seen now) that had nearly killed Oromis from one bloody attack. This fourth attacker quickly disappeared back into the murky depths of the water of the large assembly hall the adventurers had been spending a lot of time in, in the castle.
After the large beast was killed, everyone took a breather. Malachizer was still horribly sick, so had to continually just rest, try not to get in the way, and be watched by the others. At this point, the halfling Id d’no was very hurt, too, since his run-in with and subsequent escape from the giant crocodile; he was just tending to his wounds (trying to make sure he was getting worse).
Soon, another plan was hatched. They sent Quick Wind out on the floating bed, into the waters of the assembly hall. Another crocodile attacked; Quick Wind was very hurt from the animal’s bite (in his midsection), and fell unconscious. At first, A-bom Great Moon was guarding, but now went to attack the crocodile; at the same time, Fangorn dragged Quick Wind’s limp body off of the bed and away from the crocodile. The crocodile was quickly dispatched by Fangorn’s next attack upon it’s back (with A-bom fighting at his side); the brother’s threw up a yell of triumph. And the rest of the group that heard them would have also yelled in victory; at least those that had enough strength to would have— at this point, this was just Shin-ou that was close enough to see and hear this melee.
Quick Wind aided three of them with his knowledge of field medicine; this benefited Oromis, Quick Wind, and I d’no.
Another harrowing three-day harrowing trip back, through the marshes, to Melinir. There were no battles or contentions along the way, fortunately.
– Melechizar was half-speed, for another eighteen or so hours….
Pickman regaled them with the details of the history of this region in southeastern Thunder Rift and Castle Kraal.
The adventure goes on, and the final secrets that the castle might yield still have not been uncovered.
