Vault of the gods

Campaign Start
On a boat

The party:
Garviel Torgaddon – Dwarven Fighter
Fabius Roghax – Human Cleric
Pebbler Finbliss – Halfling Rogue
Flaeris Redling- Fire Genasi Wizard
Sir Arthur – Human Sorcerer

As the story opens, the party finds themselves coming to and chained to barrels below deck on a boat. As the boat docks and most of the crew leave, the party manages to free themselves, and scare off the remaining crew member left to watch them and the boat.

They steal the boat, and take the boat out of the dock. As they start to leave the pier, the fleeing crew member alerts the captain and the rest of the crew that were still proceeding into town. Running back to their ship they are unable to re-board before the boat leaves.

The party heads out of the bay, but are unable to navigate the rock formations protecting way into and out of the bay. After crashing the boat, they make their way back to the port town of Denneren, or loosely known as the Den Of Thieves (A haven town for pirates, smugglers, and marauders). The sole town on Viper Island.

After carefully treading through the town, they hear that the boat they stole and wrecked belonged to a man known as Captain Ridley. He is now the laughing stock of Denneren and seeking revenge against the party.

Obtaining information that Stockwell Dryden who runs a ship yard on the west side of the bay, may be able to help them find passage off the island, they head toward the shipyard.

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.
