Ballad of the Claymores

Dust and Shadows
The Widow's Mansion

The party was investigating a report of small draconic creatures destroying the crops and livestock of a local farmstead in Creston. To their surprise, the real menace was something much different. When they arrived, it was the Dragons that were scared. Upon investigating the Wilde mansion, the party discovered strange mannequin creatures that moved like real people, but were reluctant to move when viewed.

The mansion was filled with all manner of strange magical devices and secret alcoves and cryptic messages. The Claymores discovered the following artifacts in their investigation

♦ Strange, Ornate, magical sword
♦ Bizarre red gem

♦ Note
♦ Mysterious Black Book

♦ Weird necromantic dagger

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.
