Within the Ashes of Chicago

The Census

Stalwart Kindred of My Domain,

All Kindred within the environs of Chicago are to attend tomorrow’s Elysia on 36th floor of the Tribune Tower. Long has it been since the last reckoning occurred and feeding rights may be adjusted. Grievances shall be resolved under the purview of the Council of Primogen and myself. Additionally, it has come to my attention that Sheriff Edward Nelly, my childer, has gone missing. Foul play is suspected. Sheriff Nelly or his remains are to be found, along with those who committed this transgression against the domain. May all the perpetrators be defiled, and put down for the deprived waste of unlife they are. The Primogen Council shall begin looking for a replacement, permanent or temporary for the position of Sheriff.

Court shall be held an hour after sunset,

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.
