Scourge of Pereth

Session 1: Kull Davos's journal
A matter of Honor

{{ Orderly columns of pictograms, drawn in a fine and practiced hand, grace this page. A translation has been provided. }}

I suspect I have outstayed my welcome at the wheat-farm village. Today, the King’s tax collectors came again, months early, demanding a second levy and killing a villager who dared bring dishonor upon himself by touching one of the soldiers.

I should mention my new companions; the deranged human Luthgern (whom I would call a Barbarian, if it was not a redundant descriptor that could apply to all of the people of this uncivilized land), the proud dwarf Torin (a paladin with some small skill as a metalsmith), Marlow the half-elven woman (very dedicated to the health of the land), and a strange elf Lengren, whom, it seems, can summon a dragon.

In the aftermath of the tax collection, we were confronted by the lawlessness and dishonor of some of the King’s troops, as they tried to force themselves on women of the village and became violent when rebuffed. Neither Torin nor I would stand for this behavior, thus we intervened. It was not my best fight, but we prevailed and preserved the honor of the women. Only one of the soldiers survived, but he will likely never fight again.

Curiously, the mayor seems upset that we saved his women.

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.
