Lands of Astoria

Session 1: The Mines of Keep

The party were hired by Lord Darrington to covertly enter Mine-E and discover why the miners had not reported in. The party spoke to Holt Burgess, the Chief Foreman of the miners' guild in Keep and learned that the mines had recently been visited by a guest from the Efrian mines in Pirn, and fellow high ranking official in the miners' guild, Frederik von Pirn (member of the Von Pirn family to whom George has sworn enmity against). Upon entering the mine the party found it filled with Kobolds, an Umber Hulk and a fledgling Dragon Wyrmling. They also found evidence that Frederik von Pirn had manipulated the miners into mining into old passages which he knew led to the Wyrmling and Kobold warrens. The party fought the Wyrmling but if fled before it could be slain. Upon returning to Holt Burgess and Lord Darrington, it was discovered that Frederik von Pirn had fled the town, having slain two guards in doing so. Frederik was declared an enemy of Keep and the party were named friends of the town, paid and given lodging in Darrington's personal keep. The party have been told that they will be called upon again once Darrington has figured out what to do.

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.
