Session 1
Welcome to wherever you are.

The party found themselves in a strange city, with no knowledge of where they were. 

A flyer led the way to Backsliders Bar, where the barkeep, Lonn, asked for some help with a Rat infestation. 

Sadiq was mind controlled by the rats, who evidently, had been planning a bank heist. 


The party was led on a tour of the local area, by a "tout", Trillby. 

In the night market, Sadiq saw a vision of thorny vines attempting to devour a small boy, when an assassin attacked. 

The assassin cut up Abe, Sadiq and Edias, before a showdown on top of the building, where the Assassin fled. 


Trillby helped the party back to Backsliders.

Session 0
Why are we in the desert?

The party found themselves waking up in the desert, not knowing where they were, or their companions. 


They met a friendly chap, called Harrin, who taught them how to survive on Athas. 


Harrin led them to a ruin, killed a woman, stole her amulet and ran. 


There were visions of demons taking over the planet, and other planets, and as <Sam> reached the temple, he got there just in time to see Harrin escaping through the portal, after dropping the amulet. 


After the party joined back up, they grabbed the amulet, and followed through the portal. 


When they emerged on the other side, while there was no sign of Harrin, they were greeted by a strange city street, filled with strange beings, curving inception-like above them. 


A flyer advertised Backsliders, what looked to be a bar in the area.  

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.
