The End of Man

First Blood: Part 1
First raid into human lands

With two weeks until the annual cleansing of the goblin tribes, a few strong hobgoblins gather in the foothills of the vile mountains. Their backgrounds differ, but their goal is singular; retribution. These four are Aurok, Grakk, Oktar, and Torung.

The quest begins with Oktar sending Ophelia, his herald, out to treat with the nearby clans, and judge their strength. While she does so, the rest head out to begin prodding the human borders for weakness. Grakk scouted ahead and became violently ill upon eating a raw chicken. Once the party surrounded the outpost, the bloodshed commenced. Notable moments include Grakk’s bowstring exploding upon his first attempt to fire an arrow. With the battle nearly won, Grakk fled, while Torung and Aurok attempted to save the ale from burning within the tavern. Several souls were absorbed by Oktar.

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.
