The Beginning...
first session

Scott Dunn wakes up in an airplane with no idea how he got there. He is the only person on the plane, and he’s in his camos. He watches as other passengers begin to board. He takes note of young man with dark hair, and the young girl who he is with. They look related.

As Ricardo Herrera boards his AmericAir flight 229 from LA to Houston, he passes an older black man looking at him strangely. Then an even older black man gives him a squinty look. He wonders if they recognize him, but doesn’t dwell on it and clutches his bag and finds his seat.

Detective Landon Brance sits in the airport waiting while he watches other people board his flight. He notices a small Mexican man with a nervous look to him. He also watches an unassuming young man board, and can’t help but get a weird feeling about him. When it finally his turn to board, Det. Brance helps up an old black man named Isaac Wiggins who ends up sitting next to him on the plane, across the aisle.

The plane flight is normal until…

The plane drops.

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.
