Age of Awakening

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.

Grippli Preservation Project - Entry Six

Entry Six

It’s ready. After weeks of preparation, the habitat is complete. Days of collecting samples of flora and fauna finally over. Do you have any idea how difficult it is to trap enough giant insects for a project this size? I opted for the nasty things to die in the cold, but my assistant insists they’re necessary to their ecosystem.

The first wave of Grippli have arrived. Thanks to our confederate, this former chief of theirs, we are well on our way to a sustainable breeding population. I’m still not sure exactly how Saria managed to trap them all within the span of a single night, but either way they seem oblivious to their new home.

Saria was able to make contact today, a bit too early if you ask me. The soft-hearted girl thought the poor creatures were in peril when faced with a dragonfly the size of a horse. The goal of this project is not to coddle the Grippli, but to elevate them! If they are ever to grow as a people, they’ll need to muster the courage to stand up against bigger foes than just some giant pest. At least she was met with kindness instead of poisoned spears.

I’ll continue to monitor their progress as we seek out more of their kin. Our time is running short, though. It grows colder by the day and the remaining Grippli won’t survive the coming weeks. My people may have doomed their existence, but at least I can give them a chance to live on…
