Initial Story - What brought your character here
Sent to Auchendale

Your characters are en route to the town of Auchendale. You are travelling along the river (or on the river if you feel your character would have taken a small ship. There are trade vessels up and down this river.

An NPC in your “world” has sent you to the city to have an audience with the mayor. He is troubled and has put out a request for help. the reasons seem vague but the town is having some troubles and you have been sent to check it out.

The person that sent you should be a patron of some sort. Perhaps your lord or lady… perhaps a druid of your order with a higher rank. It should be someone with either the position, or relationship influence with you to send you to this town.

What you know of Auchendale
If you feel that your character would know this… here are a couple pieces of information:

If you dont feel that your character would know some or all of these things… play it like you dont know!

You know that it is upstream on the main river in the area, days past the forest line.
There are rumors of there being a really amazing wine that is produced here
The letter that was sent to your patron would have had a crude map included that leads to auchendale. (not a comprehensive map of the area, more like… “we are here.” Your character could have this on thier person if you feel that they would.

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.
