Fresh Princes of the Apocalypse

Trouble in Red Larch
a bad moon is on the rise

The band of nascent heroes attend a funeral for the farmers, where Winnie meets an old acquaintance who promises to provide her with some ancient lore, but then decides to join in for some bandit-hunting.

After investigating a few likely sites and dispatching a small band of marauding gnolls, the adventurers came upon a hidden encampment. Several bandits were lounging around, while an emaciated bear was held in a barred wagon. After a pitched battle the raiders were dispatched, the bear wandered off, and our heroes claimed the spoils of victory.

The next day, the adventurers headed off to Lance Rock to check out rumors of evil doings. Ignoring several signs warning of plague, they entered a cavern, where they encountered several undead and a few traps.

The Beginning

A bookish nerd, an antisocial fisherman, a scheming conniver, and an outcast from the depths of the Underdark. Some might call them weirdos, but in Red Larch, they just might be the only hope of salvation.

From an early encounter with drunken bugbears, to a pitched battle against strange cultists, to a daring raid on an ancient tomb, the fledgling adventurers have proven their mettle time and again, but their greatest challenges still lie ahead.

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.
