In The Days of King Lionheart

I put EVERYONE to sleep (well not the skeleton)

Felix looked nervous. He always has so far. Partyon looked as if he wanted to comfort Felix but could not due to the circle. Loopy looked slightly shocked at all the blood and I swear I heard her mutter vampires a few times. Gene has a scarf so I can’t read his expressions ever.And I? I was annoyed. Here we were having come back, gone above and beyond the call of duty (stupid Orcs) and it didn’t seem as if our customer would be able to recover his wits to tell us how to get paid. Luckily Partyon began reassuring him while at the same time terrifying him. I must ask him if he does this on purpose.
While Loopy went downstairs to get the letter, Felix informed us that men in brown robes had broken into his house and murdered his butler. While I felt for the guy I maintained it was best for us to go back and get paid. Partyon disagreed. Something about “blah blah keep Felix safe blah blah not safe blah blah honor of the dragon born” At least I think it was like that. I zoned out after a bit. Luckily I convinced him that we should head back although we also had to convince Loopy not to cut through the market. I’m not sure why she’s always looking at the market maybe it’s a gnome thing .
We returned to the taskers guild hall around 6 where I made a new friend! I don’t know his name or really remember his face but he did say good morning to me! People don’t always do that I wonder why that is. We then walked into Elzor’s study. He had water everywhere. I deduced they were not chamber pots and rather were for some kind of ritual which Elzor backed up. He offered to teach me some divination but I’m not sure if I’ll take him up on it. I’ve never been able to grasp how wizards have so many spells. I just work with what I have.
We told Elzor the whole story (leaving out killing those guys in the sewers) and he directed us to the cult of Kalameet. Luckily I remembered a few of the Orcs on the ship worshipped Kalameet so I was able to enlighten my party members. He sent us after Ingwad (I think that was his name) but he be dead now so no bounty and no nothing. Before we left he gave me guild rates on a diamond so I can finally cast Chaotic Orb again!
After a lovely nap we set off for the slums. Well all of us but Gene who apparently was feeling sick. Maybe hes always sick and thats why he wears that scarf. Loopy and I consistently examined the wares but Partyon kept strolling along, though he did stop once to admire a lovely pretzel cart outside the church. Loopy even bought one for a fellow customer! What a kind gnome. The church was tall with very heavy doors and a stained glass window, tempted as I was to break it we all ended up wandering inside.
We were greeted by a man in a mask, well Partyon and I were. Loopy wandered off to sit between worshipers for some reason. Perhaps she secretly worships Kalameet. Masked guy made a big deal about Partyon but had no information about Ingwad despite my silver tongue. (SPOILER ALERT! he was Ingwad) But before that we got in a big fight and once again it was because Partyon began speaking to someone.
I saw him go over to someone on a bench, they began whispering and all of a sudden Partyon was getting a dagger in his dragon chest. Luckily I had been inching towards my components pouch and was able to react almost instinctively. It’s also a good thing that the dreams came again last night. I am in a field the wind roars and screams around me and as it begins to die I hear whispers of power. I had the feeling it had something to do with being asleep which it turned out it literally was! Over the course of about 30 seconds I took out their entire little cult mob! I am amazing and everyone else was kind of useful as it took attention away from me.

We then began walking around knocking people out. I wanted to just kill them all but again Partyon was all “No honor in killing people who are asleep blah blah punch blah” So I had to use my spear. I hate using it, I only have it because it makes me look cool. One time I failed to knock the guy out but luckily I fire bolted his face instantly. Been a while since I’ve done that and it felt pretty good.

Once all the little brown robes were knocked out we went over to Masked guy. I made the executive decision to take his mask off but I wish I had not. He was ugly as sin. Probably a burn victim but knowing this stupid cult it was self inflicted. Partyon then decided to take advantage of being a scary fellow. He took him to the altar and started threatening him with his own dagger (it was then we found out he was Ingwad) Ingwad said something about how we were too late and the city was doomed. I wanted to take him to the guards for our reward but Partyon and Loopy wanted to see the locked room. I suggested throwing Ingwad inside which I instantly regretted but they both liked the idea so that may be a new strategy for our little group.

Partyon threw him inside and maybe disrupted a big summoning ritual. He also vaporized Ingwad so no money their but since I may shortly be dead due to the fucking skeletal Minotaur that arose that may be the least of my concerns. At least I got to cast a few spells today. I also saw Partyon shoot lightning out of his mouth again. I wonder if he can change it’s element, also do all dragonborn’s breath match their color? All these and more might be answered if I am not shortly to die.

Everything is shit
My first party

I had been hanging around the Taskers guildhouse, looking for some marks, when this old beardy guy called out my name and ushered me inside, along with three other very large individuals. One of them was a lizard named Partyon. Another was a half elf named Raen and… something named Gene. I don’t know what Gene is cause he never took off his hood. I think the beard guys name was Enzor or Enzon or something. I tried to pick his pocket but all I found was my ring in there. It’s cool though, myself and Enzod are buddies.

He sent us to this posh house in the administration district. I wanted to go through the marketplace to see if i could steal lunch but nooOOOoo everyone wanted to go straight there. as a result, i didn’t get to eat all day, so I am starving. Maybe lizards and half elves and whatever Gene is don’t need food, but I do. I’ll have to remember to steer the party in a more food oriented direction tomorrow.

We ended up cutting straight through the administration district to get to this house. Some guy named Felix lives there. He is an appraiser with a dwarf butler. The dwarf has two hands, so no worries there, but the dwarf is also dead so now I’m really not concerned with him.

The dwarf brought us up to the attic and instructed us not to attempt to touch Felix. When we got up there, we saw Felix sitting next to a table with a red circle around him. The red circle prevented anything from getting in and out. This did not extend to sound, but judging from the dark patch on the floor Felix was trying to conceal from us it did extend to smell. Felix had fallen victim to a very literal cartoon Djinn, and he tasked us with retrieving it. I tried to throw a rock at him but it didn’t work. Then I tried to climb on Partyon’s shoulders but he threw me off. Then we set off to the sewers. I don’t know why we did that, but it has to do with a language Raen speaks. Raen’s the kind of guy that speaks 40 different languages but doesn’t know how to properly tie his shoes.

We get to a big metal disc that Partyon tosses aside with ease. I then get thrown headfirst into a river of fecal matter while Partyon gently lowers himself and the rest of the party to the ground. I am still livid about this. Raen mocked me, so I conjured the image of an ugly horse face around his face. I clearly won that particular interaction.

We walked down the smelly chasm until Gene heard some noises and spotted an orc and a trio of goblins coming at us. The Orc sounded like an old, heavily tobaccod, Jason Statham. We let Gene and Partyon do the talking. In the future, Gene and Partyon should only do the talking if the talking will be followed immediately by punching. This is exactly what transpired.

The goblins got the jump on us, dashing forward before they’d even seen me and slashing at Gene and Partyon. Partyon seemed ok but Gene took a pretty deep cut to the midsection. I tried to conjure a roar at the Orc, who still hadn’t seen me, but I failed miserably. Raen tried to blast the goblins with magic. I’m not sure if he connected, but I do know that he followed up his spell casting by scampering behind me. This is confusing, since Raen is 6 feet tall and I am four feet tall, but I imagine he had his reasons. Partyon and Gene had far more success, battering goblins into unconsciousness threw sheer size differences. The Orc dashed at Gene, but just missed with his ax. The I, the fearless hero of all stories, dove in elegant fashion past Partyon and hacked at the Orcs legs, cutting right through the tendons and leaving him crippled and useless. I wanted to interrogate him, since I was a bit confused about what he was doing there, something to do with a Rat King, but Partyon wanted to punch a cripple, and who am I to reason with a lizard’s fists.

I got a key, a sword, and some gold.

Instead of opening the heavy metal doors with the key, we took a right and found a wooden door that had music playing on the other side of it. We got in to see a giant blue creature dancing as a melody echoed from a strange metallic contraption in the corner of the room. The Blue Creature went over to the object, combed its hair, and hit it with its elbow, causing the music to stop. It turned out that this was the Genie we had been sent to find, his name is Tim. He told us he would only come if we fought his minions, but we were delayed by a strange coughing fit from Raen. Tim’s “Minions” turned out to be a bunch of chickens, which Partyon fried with Lighting Breath. Come to think of it, this would have been a good time to eat something.

We got Tim and walked back to Felix’s only to find the door ajar. We raced upstairs and saw the dwarf bloody in a corner with Felix pressed up against the circle white with fright. I am willing to bet the 4 gold i got off that orc that its vampires. Or I would be willing to bet that but i’m the only one with any money.

Take that Raen, you’re poor.

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.
