The Guild of Mysterious Order

Red Light District Curiosities

 [Object] – While walking about, trying to understand the world by taking in the sights of the red light district, you notice a woman talking to another woman (whom by her purple dress and silver chain belt, you have come to know indicates an employee of the nearby brothel).

You watch their interaction closely, which seems to be a standard transaction. However, you randomly choose to scan the area at that moment. In doing so, you notice a figure that wasn't there before, an outline of a person that seems to not be fully corporeal. The figure looks up at you, shocked for a moment, and then smiles and puts its one finger to its lip (as a "shhhh" motion). The figure winks then steps inside the woman speaking to the brothel mistress. There is a slight twitch on the woman's face, and then the interaction proceeds as normal. The woman in purple takes the other's hand, and begins leading her back to the establishment.

Genly's Crafting Query

[Beartka] – While ordering at the bar in the Guild of Mysterious Order, the barkeep Genly approaches you with more than a drink. He looks bashful, and kind of nervous, which is out of the character you've seen him as.

"So, eh, I heard ye make things? Was wondering if ye had any interest in making something for me. It's an idea I've had for a long time, but I'm not very, eh, crafty."

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.
