Return of the Lost Lord

Campaign Introduction

As you make your way through the city square heading toward the main entrance you are having to weave through crowds of panicked citizens who are frantically hurrying to their homes for shelter. The Vassal has called for all gates to be barred and all draftees to report to their commanding officers. Words pass by quickly as you slip through the mobs but you are able to gather that a scout has finally made it back, but hardly with his life. People mention frozen blight and death heading toward Lannereth. You begin to realize that you are no longer fighting the masses but it hasn’t become any easier to move forward. It feels as though there is an unseen force pressing firmly on your chest. As you make your way up the steps the weight of your legs seem unbearable. From the bastion you can make out the fear, like the rustling of Autumn leaves in the wind. In the distance you catch a cool blue glow sauntering slowly over the bluff. As the formation makes it’s way over the open farmland, you begin to make out bulky figures swaying melodically. Many of the fledglings have begun to shirk their responsibilities and crawl back into the corners. It is now apparent that tragedy is about to strike hard into the land of Amadar, and you seem to have found yourself in the epicenter.

Roleplaying Example
I don't think I'll be able to live up to this.

Hey guys, check this out. Great example of some D&D action going down. And for those that didn’t know, Vin Diesel is a HUGE fan of the game. He says that he wouldn’t have become an actor if he wasn’t introduced to D&D.

10/15 Character Creation

Nothing formal about this session. We’re just meeting together to talk about character creation and work together to come up with a concept of the hero that each player is envisioning. I (The DM) will be asking some questions about races covered in Chapter 2 of the Player’s Handbook (PHB) so please don’t forget to read it before coming. There are only 10 pages so it won’t take long. For those that don’t have a physical copy of the PHB, you can view a PDF version at

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.
