Dungeons in Dragons

Session 3
The one where Adrieth flips off a child.

When Nissa and Adrieth wandered back into camp the party decided to spend the night with the villagers. Nissa and Bubbles are very popular, however Korvar scared a child into the woods. Nissa attempted to convince a hawk to carry a message, but was unsuccessful. (Due to Adrieth scaring the poor thing away.)

When Adrieth followed, she was cornered by a fiend, but luckily Pyromath and Korvar came to the rescue. Especially Korvar, who skewered it with a javelin. After an uneventful night’s watch, the party awake to find formerly old woman Ethel was now very young and doesn’t seem to remember the past 40 years. Not sure if it was the tea Nissa made, Eldath’s power or the Vuldorf Spring – our adventures took off in a defensive formation to leave the forest.

Nissa successfully found and sent off a pigeon with a message to warn Ezan of their arrival, but they were held up when Pyromath sensed some very territorial vegetables. Oblivious, Korvar left to pee in the woods. Little did he know that his orcish bits would offend the Vegepygmes so much that they decided to attack.

After a gruesome battle that ended in Korvar getting poisoned and subsequently healed, they made their way back to the villagers who were a little worse for wear. Leading the villagers out they sensed a large creature following them. After meeting with Ezan and receiving more supplies, they quickly explained the situation and headed back into the forest to find the Lord Kwenthrith’s son, bidding farewell to the villagers.

Bob, Steve, and Nissa had a lovely excursion. Stevette lovingly offered to help Nissa steal supplied from Adrieth but the fire lady has good perception.

Stalked by a large tiger, but protected by druidic magic, the party made their way to the Duskwood Dell. Nissa gave Pyra a lovely haircut with her Great Axe. When they reached the ruins, They entered a chamber with 8 statues of the First Order of druids. (This is where Adrieth gave a 10 year old the bird). Korvar tried to deface the statues.

After making their way into the next chamber the party battled a fearsome beast. Korvar and Adrieth soon learned that steel was of little value. Nissa and Pyromath used their magic to defeat the watery monster, revealing a door in the statue of Eldath.

After passing through a dormitory, library and agricultural room, they knocked on a wooden door. They were greeted by Malara – leader of the druids of Eldath who occupied this ruin.

Malara spun a sorry tale, 5 years ago a mysterious creature killed the Lord’s son and his barons, leaving him the only survivor. Alive, but cursed, the Lord is gripped by fits of madness. The curse is vampirism, and upon his death he will rise to reign terror over his desecrated lands, she explained. However Jamila (his apothacery) and Malara had a plan to stop it and our adventures were just the help she needed.

The Lycanthrope that had stalked them was named Theo, he was a were-tiger that lost his parents in the orcish raid. He was only a child, but his Lycan venom could be used in a ritual to slay the Lord Kwentrith and save the land.

Malara goes on to explain that the ritual usually calls for a Paladin of the Raven Queen, but Adrieth will have to do. Nissa asks what would happen if Adrieth died (for real this time) and they learned that her death would mean the failure of this plan.

Nissa and Pyromath went out to lure the boy inside. Nissa used her gnomish charm and adorable squirrel friend, and Pyromath used his suprisingly tender heart to reassure the boy.

Korvar soon took a liking to him as well, wrestling with the giant tiger and sharing his precious ale. The scary emo fire lady talked to her scary emo God in the library. Surprised by Pyromath’s kindness towards the boy, allowed him to butcher the chicken promised to Theo and invited the party to rest for the night.

Session 2
Where Katy nearly kills herself

Our adventurers, after fighting a particularly pesky swarm of bats and learning the meaning of ‘friendly fire’, soon continued on their quest. They noticed however that the desecration of the town had spread to the forest and was most certainly changing the behaviour of the creatures within. Indeed, even with her forest heritage Nissa was unable to get anything from the bats other than “EAT EVERYTHING.”

Guided by Nissa’s new snake friends, they made their way through the forest to a stream and luckily spotted 2 orcs lollygagging by the main road. Upon capturing, questioning and killing both of the orcs they left with a new Great Axe for Nissa, a beautiful orc head necklace for Korvar and a fancy magic stick for Pyromath.

Adrieth, sick of being hurt by her companion, told Pyromath about her feelings with her fist.
Korvar hilariously commented to his orc prisoner that perhaps this is how elves mate. Nissa, terrifying in her snake wearing, underdark spouting state (nat 20 wat wat) scared the shit out of the orc. The camaraderie of Korvar and the orc was short lived when he decapitated the orc for saying his favourite colour was blue.

After scouting the camp, 3 orcs were drawn into a cleverly laid trap of Korvar’s devising and quickly slaughtered with magical stick, sword, great axe and Nissa’s creepy sniper hand (with no friendly fire, yay!). Adrieth managed to extract a little more information this time, including the welfare of 10 human prisoners and the whereabouts of the 3 remaining orcs.

The party encircled the camp and attacked, separating the orcs into two groups. Nissa and Adrieth fought the viscous female orc, while Pyromath and Korvar made quick work of the remaining two males. (Except for that one bit where Pyromath failed and it was hilarious.)
Nissa again used her newly found Great Axe, dropping it with her mage hand on the unsuspecting orcs.

However, just as the battle seemed won for sure, a misguided attack by Adrieth led to her being knocked unconscious and nearly dying, whispering “I’ll see you soon, brother”. Adrieth held on by a thread (and Korvar’s inspiration) until Nissa rushed over to heal her, still wearing her “snakeskin” boots.

The prisoners were freed, fires lit and heads laid down for a well earned rest.
Upon waking our brave companions learned that the prisoner Theo had escaped, while the Lord Kwenthrith’s son, Sambra, had been sold as a slave. It seems the boy was sold to Elven and Half elven figures in hooded cloaks, all bearing a beautiful but unfamiliar waterfall brooch. Most interestingly, the figures had promised the remaining villagers that rescue was on its way.

Adrieth and Pyromath got pissy at each other again, she failed a command spell, then returned to the fire to quietly recite the oath of Sheverash and polish her shield. Nissa gained more information from the villagers, and Korvar begrudgingly gave his spare great axes to some of the stronger looking individuals.

The campsite provided some exciting loot including a potion of invincibility, a potion of Frost Giant Strength, powerful crossbow bolts for Nissa, 7 gems and more silver for Korvar’s already jingling loincloth.

The party have promised to see the villagers to the edge of the forest before continuing on their quest to rescue Lord Kwenthrith’s son, Sambra.

Next session, our newly minted Level 2 heroes continue their quest…

Session 1

Four adventurers, for whatever reason, heed the call of a duke in need. If the party is able to hunt down the band of orcs responsible for raiding one of the region’s outlying villages and retrieve the missing villagers, one of them being the lord’s sole heir, they will receive 500 gold pieces to share in reward.

Ezan, the captain of the offers to lead the party to the edge of the forest and offers supplies for their journey. Mid conversation, her stoic demeanor is broken by a small squirrel clambering up her leg to nest atop her head.

The terms settled upon, the party leaves the premises but not before the lord’s physician shoves a small bundle into the paladin’s hands giving no explanation except, “give this to Theo.” Before returning to aid the lord.

The party gets off to a rocky start, especially between Ezan and Pyromath and Pyromath, Adrieth.
Nissa chills with the wild life, adopting all the come into her care and Korvar awaits his next tavern crawl with eager anticipation.

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.
