The Great Bounty Hunt

A New Adventure

After brief introductions at the city gate, three adventurers Servaes, Kruphix, and Tomoe Gozen have decided to meet the Duke together to find out what help is needed. They head straight to the Duke’s castle in town where they are greeted by a nervous looking steward in the grand hall and meet the man himself after a short wait. Duke Bavmorda scoffs at the party at first glance and claims that the party is probably only good for cleaning his basement of cobwebs.

After some convincing, the three adventurers hear of three tasks the Duke needs carried out.

- A three headed “demon beast” was reported and claimed to have taken out several farms not far from the city. Bavmorda needs the beast killed and some specific body parts brought back.

- A large green monster with no other description was seen kidnapping farmers near a village out to the east. As with the other beast, the Duke needs the best killed and body parts returned to him.

- There is also a goblin raiding party that the Duke needs taken care of. He does not give any more details about this task.

This is all the information the Duke gives at this point since he is still not convinced the group will return alive. His advice is to tackle the green monster first, and the party quickly heads out east in pursuit of this beast.

After about a half day of travel, the group spots a path leading into a dense forest and proceeds inward. After making some decision on which direction to follow, they come across a small clearing. Tomoe deftly sprawls clear of a nasty pit trap at the start of the clearing immediately before an arrow shoots from the trees in the other side and lodges into Kruphix’s shoulder. The party quickly regains their wits and is able to spot a dark figure hiding in the trees thanks to an expertly thrown light source by Servaes. The three adventurers quickly dispose of what they realize to be a half-orc monster hunter (and his three large pet spiders). Appearances here seem to indicate that he was trying to lure something out of a nearby cave entrance that they now see leads underground from the clearing.

Onward through the entrance, the group proceeds down a steep decline to find a large sprawling cavern with several short offshooting corridors. At the end of one, Kurphix’s trusty wolf-steed, Horse, spots a very large and grotesque-looking green figure feeding on something. The monster spots the party and the battle is on. The group quickly realizes this is a nasty and powerful extraplanar creature with some powerful spells. But they endure. After nearly losing Kruphix’s steed, the beast is killed. They cut up the body parts requested by Bavmorda and are now prepared to move on.

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.
