Gerard, adventure 2

we came back to the village mid morning, to find that the situation had deteriorated. There were far too many ill to be treated, and their care was getting poor. Near a cluster of houses, we found a group of children who had been sent to camp out by their parents. Clearly they were sent away so as to not catch the sickness. I gave them breakfast and sent them on a scavenger hunt for some herbs that might be helpful, and to prevent them from having to interact with the sick. We found their parents were very ill and all worked in different ways to help. My stomach could take contact with the ill, so I made them comfortable and changed sheets. The others worked on potions and poultices. We tried everything, and found that even holy water caused harm…

In time, we found ourselves near the hospital when we heard a commotion. Jaxon and I entered first, and couldn’t believe what we saw. The sick were attacking a healer…. They pushed her down and bit her to death… Soon others were attacking other healers. The sick had become delusional. We tried to stop them, but the madness had gripped them. The only thing could think of was to hold the hospital gate so they could hurt anyone else. Acolyte Kel Gultel, Order of the Throne declared them evil and killed some… We begged him to stop, that these people just needed healing that we didn’t know how to provide… Soon, a woods approached, and he said to hit them in her head. I elated this, but apparently he meant to kill them too… I couldn’t do it, it just didn’t feel right. Eventually we saw it as hopeless and fled. I told the others I would meet them by the hole in the cornfield after I brought the children…

Jaxon. Game 1

Dear Diary,
The past few days have been very up and down indeed. First, the highs…After having a good night with friends and companions, we were treated to a rousing game of Beat the Boar as our first act. I must’ve been a little rusty from not being able to practice my skill in so long. I needed more help than I would care to admin in the subduing of the beasts. But, after the victorious fight, I did my due diligence on the aspect of my more consistent job and made sure all wounds were healed before retiring to my room to meditate on my inconsistency in the previous arena battle before the upcoming round 2 the next day.

The next day was more fruitful I would say. I was able to successfully assist with taking down our opponents, albeit using less flurry attacks and sticking to the big guns. As with the previous day, all wounds were healed and I retired to my room for more meditation on how I should improve my battle prowess. The others seem to insist on degrading their bodies with wine and women(and men for some). On to the next day and the final act of our battles.

Day 3 was very eventful in the arena. The pit traps were quite the hassle but most made it through unscathed. The Acolyte Kel seemed to have great distress in getting stuck after biggifying himself to attempt to cause more damage and mayhem to our enemy combatants. I did have to skirt around and evade a few traps before landing close to an enemy to pummel him into submissions. Once again, we found victory and, once again, the others wanted to celebrate with body impurities and pleasures of the flesh. It seemed that Kel and Gerard partook of a little too much drink as they were both still hung over and partially drunk the next day when we were informed that we would be dining with the King. I was informed I was being a mean person in not correcting their ailment of hungoverness but nobody can learn a lesson if the lesson is avoided. Maybe they will learn this lesson.

Dining with the King went splendidly. The meal was superb, as expected. I did bring up to him some horrible rumors I had heard about a sickness that was being whispered around. He did confirm that there was indeed a sickness, a disease, that seemed to be happening in a smaller town a couple days away and we were “asked” to investigate, which we of course whole-heartedly accepted. I wouldn’t want any citizens of our fine Utopia to suffer in any way, shape or form that was through no fault of their own stupidity.

The next morning, we set off. An uneventful but peaceful trip, until we arrived at the small town. There were bodies everywhere. All sick people. Some more than others but the entire troupe sprung into action, all doing whatever we could to help the sick but it seemed no matter what we did, it was delaying whatever was happening but not stopping it or reversing it. So we decided to try and figure out who this started with an investigate that to possibly get to the source and stop it. We did find out the patient zero and where he was the day before so we set off for that area and found a large, dark pit that just seemed to be oozing darkness and evil magic. With no real way to counter this effect at this time, we did some searching around and found some footprints heading off in a different direction than the town we came from. We were able to track the individual down, though I fear others may have come in contact with him as this seems to spread through some sort of contact. he currently just feels fatigued but is attributing it to the long day. We were able to convince him to come back to the other town and have quarantined off his home and family but to be looked after to see if they too suffer any ailment. I only hope we were able to cut it of fin time to limit this sickness to the one small town…..

Gerard, Adventure 1

Ah, the life of a performer. Tis a sweet life. Going to the capital to compete in the games, the adulation of adoring fans, the drinks, the easy companionship. How could it get better?

My friends and I made our way to a nice inn, and prepared ourselves for the coming show. On the first day we fought some boars, and soundly knocked out the creatures. I do believe my archery was spectacularly on display then. That night I found some intimate companionship by showing how limber I am. Next day we faced a creature that had some kind of charming ability. Jaxon needed a tad bit of help focusing, so I discretely nudged him (wouldn’t want the crowd to get the wrong idea). In the end, we were victorious yet again. On the last day, we fought a group of other creatures in a trapped arena. Acolyte Kel Gultel, Order of the Throne had a littl bit of trouble with some pits, and my special attack backfired. So, even though victorious, Kel and I decided that drinking was a more likely celebration than men or women… I’m told that I beat Kel in a drinking contest, but by the next morning it seemed clear we had both lost… Jaxon, in one of his more heartless moments declined to help our obvious suffering..

We were then invited to dine with the king. Thankfully that was in the evening, so we had time to recover. And, bought a special outfit for the occasion to impress. I just tried to stay in the background since I’m not good with impressing royals. The king then sent us to investigate a “disease” we’d heard about. After arriving,we saw scene never before witnessed. People were laid out on beds as the healing Center was full.. We helped as best as we could, but the town was overwhelmed. Jaxon de died we need to keep people who weren’t feeling well isolated, while Kel and I said we should investigate the source. We found a hole that had no apparent bottom, and saw tracks. We followed the tracks to another village, and found more exposure to the unwell. We set up some communication and hygiene procedures, and took the first person back to the other village in the 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.
