Episode One
News Report

Mayor addresses the recent “domestic terrorism” and says he believes that the bombings are most likely to be the “actions of religious extremists.” These recent terrors that have been plaguing our city don’t seem to be coming to an end any time soon. Law enforcement has not revealed any leads or persons of interest as of yet.
Also, there has been no new information that has come to light about the recent murders that don’t seem to be connected to the bombings, but there are rumors that it is the action of a serial killer’s presence in our beloved Central City. Authorities are cautioning people to stay inside at night and keep a look out for suspicious people and report anything strange to the police.
Be careful and stay safe Central City.

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.
