The Tales of Tai-Rel

Intro and initial research

Didn’t learn much besides what’s in the wiki in intro. Fo Thumb acquired a DireWolf pelt.

After breaking into the Adventurer’s Guild archive, we learned that the dungeons are distributed accordingly among the adventurers hired by Frisia:

Fighter desert
Cleric ocean
Wizard mountains
Rogue forest

We decided to go for the forest temple first, since it is traditional.

Adventure Log Expectations

Iteration Number: NULL

Log message:

I’m expecting the party to keep this log up to date. This doesn’t need to be every session, but it does need to be every iteration through the loop. These entries can be short.

  • Did anything get accomplished? If so what?
  • What (if anything) did you learn about the world?
  • Did anything interesting happen with NPCs? Who were they, what happened, what was memorable?
  • Were there world events? What made them happen?

Doing this will make keeping track of things easier for the party and will let Kylie know what the party thinks is important and make more of that content as the game goes on. Realistically, it shouldn’t be hard, it’s a few hundred words at most every couple of weeks divided among the party.

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.
