"Make Ready You Fools!"
Chapter 1

You are in the midst of your daily life.

A voice startles you in midst of your actions, “Prepare yourself”, it says firmly. “Stop what you are doing, and make ready you fool.”

A flash of pain overcomes you, like the wrong end of a mace colliding with your skull. Your eyes are forced shut. There is silence for only a moment. The sound around you returns, only you do not recognize the tone of your surroundings.

The air in the room is thick and warm. You feel an audible low hum, but are not yet certain it’s coming from outside of your head.

“Open your eyes”, the voice says.

Hesitantly, you open your eyes to find yourself transported. Strange. Only a moment has passed, but somehow you find yourself in a foreign room. Scanning the room, you see the faces of 4 strangers, but cannot quite make out any details of your environment.

All of whom appear to be equally as shocked as yourself.

“Who are these people? Who or what was that voice? How, in no time at all, did you come to be here in this strange place?”, you ask yourself.

One of the strangers, a Genasi of some creed, moves to speak.

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.
