Entry one - The town of Evergree

I wasn’t sure what to expect when we got our orders. The mission was simple: go out, check on established outposts, search for other rangers that may need help, and generally do good.
So far, this trip has been interesting. I never imagined that Bell’s little adventure with my book would have brought Erin Tarn to see us off with a breakfast fit for a king. It’s a memory I will never forget. And that was before we even left.
On a side note, Mrs. Tarn is as humble as she is talented. I hope to someday be half the woman she is.
Our first two days on the trail were somewhat uninteresting. I’m told we saw a minor lay line storm pass along one of the lines during the night. Thankfully, we didn’t see much activity from it while we were traveling. Just some strange fog and light rain.
When we arrive at Evergreen, we were met by the most interesting cyborg I have ever met. Ix seems like an amazing person, but I’ve never seen a centaur with so many cybernetic implants.
Humbolt Humperdink gave us a wonderful welcome to Evergreen. It was a peasant experience until the lay line storm and fog brought in a batch of broadkil. Thankfully, we were able to dispatch them fairly quickly.
I know I’ve been training with my squad, but their abilities still amaze me. Bell in general was awe inspiring. She may be simple in many aspects, but she is a formidable foe. I’m glad she is my friend.
Unfortunately, the town lost nine people, one of which was a child.
The remains of the broadkil were shredded and buried in the cemetery outside of town. Not a pleasant task, but necessary.
I’m worried about what else that storm brought, but I guess we will find out further down the line, but that a thought for later.
As to the town, Hammerfist has done a fine job. The wall seem sound and the fields beyond have plenty of defensive places to hide should the people experience a surprise attach while they are out. The only thing Hammerfist has requested is an assistant, but more help is always wanted out on the front. I will add his request to my report when we return. Now it’s time for bed. We’ll be heading out early tomorrow morning.

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.
