Upstate Adventurers League

Ah, the great outdoors
A goblin roasts, a halfblood ogre is brought to tears

A recently gathered group leaves the shelter of Red Larch for the high wilderness of Dessarin Valley. In high spirits, the party finds an unlikely pair of bandits arguing a point. The small, smelly one cooks from the inside. The larger, smellier one loses his sole friend and laments his fate.

Our adventurers debate what exactly that fate will be …

Adventure awaits
There's never a good time for bagpipes

Ancient evil awakens beneath the Sumber Hills. The town of Red Larch affords weary travelers respite from the road and serves as the confluence of the paths of six wanderers. A shady lightfoot seeks a safe place to lie low. A young wizard searches for the pieces of a pyromaniacal puzzle. A mysterious minstrel on a mission to share the glory of bagpipes, two shattered eardrums at a time. A sailing ship’s chaplain finds the words to the eulogies for her shipmates. A tall man has an ax to grind with his former compatriots. A Waterdhavian noble quests to return a lost sheep to her fold.

Will this motley group take up the mantle of true adventurers or will they end up another shallow grave or pile of bones bleaching in Dessarin Valley?

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.
