The Cragmaw Conundrum
They barely made it there.

About halfway through the your trip to Phandalin, you were ambushed by some goblins who you quickly dismantled. After realizing the goblins had seemingly kidnapped your employer(Gundren Rockseeker), you followed the trail to a cave.

Through some bullshit uses of disguise kits you swindled the goblins out of all their money, then murdered them all. In that order. Then the big bossgoblin fell off a bridge while attempting to blow that popsicle stand and broke his skull, dying hard. 

Mysteriously, all the stolen loot seemed to burst into flames of its own accord after Randall left the room.

After reviving the man who had been tied up in the cave you studiously ignored his exposition monologue. He told you that Gundren Rockseeker had been taken to a place called Cragmaw Castle by the order of someone called the Black Spider. You then spent the night in a cave full of corpses and realized that you had leveled up.

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.
