The Training part 1
Let the Training Begin

We are given the first task of proving ourselves worthy in battle alone. I’m the first. I face off with a Wood Sprite. I cut it down into 3 pieces. As it fell, 3 more took its place. I scrape my Foehammer across the ground with such force, that the wooden floor sparked with flames, igniting the blade. As it sunk deep into the sprite, embers also were flung onto it. The other two fell to ash soon after the first did. Sirideán followed suit and used scorching ray against his Sprite test, and Elissar turned his into mulch.

Next task was for us to fight one another, one on one. Sirideán and I fought first. We were 80ft apart, he used his Transmogrifist powers to transform into a dragon! He took flight to scorch me from where he stood, but I dodged. He crashed and I used the opportunity to ground him with Earth’s Grip. I attacked his neck, but by doing so, Foehammer became lodged between his scales. After attacking his mid-section, the superiorly weighted dragon sat on me. After fighting my way free from his ginormous body, I start to climb using my battleaxes. He manages to free himself from my Earth’s Grip and begins to take flight to shake me off, but I hold on. He twists and tries to shake me, but I manage to maneuver my way over to my Foehammer and dislodge it. We both plummet and crash into the ground. With quick reflexes I quickly move to the spring board and leap into the air for the final blow.

Neither of our battles with Elissar weren’t nearly as epic as that battle. Most of our battle was me attacking Wolfie because he went invisible, that didn’t go over so well. Then Sirideán turned into a dragon again, but he was quickly subdued by Elissar’s bow.

Now that we’ve seen how we fought by ourselves, and how we would manage against one another, it was time for the final test.

Borin - The Quest
Adventure log 2

As I pass through the portal, I see the great tree. At the base of the tree, I saw an elf with an enormous wolf. Suddenly, another person bumped into me. The elf is Elissar and the mystery person Sirideán. After hearing the tales of how we each got to the tree, we searched around it for clues to what is next. We found three hand indentions on the tree, each with the symbol above it. We place our hands inside the indentions and the tree opened up to a staircase leading down into the tree. After being blinded by Siri and tumbling down the stairs, we came to a chamber with three doors, the middle door had the symbol above it, so we went through that one. We were met by an old man, known as Solomon, and he told us about our stones. I had the Stone of Calling – bound by duty. Eli was given the Stone of Chance – bound by morality. Siri was given the Stone of Choice – bound by circumstance. Solomon also told us that we were The Chosen – beings chosen by The Nine Spirits as their champions against an evil force known as The Betrayer and his underling The Servant. We can only defeat them with the help of one of the Nine as a Spirit Companion and their armor and weapon. I chose Raxis, Eli chose Meria, and chose Katia. But before we could set off to find these items, we had to prove ourselves worthy on the training room floor.

I lay resting in the lost forest with my wolf when a man I recognize runs by me. Chasing him is a giant serpent with legs tucked underneath him. I run to where the giant serpent has cornered the man. Having the high ground I jump on the serpent’s head and shoot two arrows in its skull. The man is a thief I used to know. He had a hit placed on him after steeling valuable items. He asked for my protection and I complied. He took me to his guild in the Thornflower clan. One of the items he had stolen was a rock with a symbol on it. After touching it the symbol appeared on my hand. I then vanquished 5 men attempting to assassinate my friend. So we killed them. I left with the stone it drawing me to the Blood Wood where I found the great tree I saw in my vision.

journey into the mountain

As I was forging a simple pipe from my beloved bloodstone, I felt a tug by the stone around me, urging me to go deeper into the mountain. I traveled for three days and have come to caverns that I’ve never been through. Underground river traveling upriver. There was a spout that led to some other room, so I molded myself a breathing apparatus from stone, and plunged into the spout. As I’m climbing through the spout, I found a stone ramp that led ashore. Bashing open the helmet, I saw what looked to be a large room with a glowing stone in the middle and an alter beside it. Upon examination of the stone, there was a rune place on top of it. As I grabbed for the stone, a burning pain shot up my arm. The rune began glow burn into my hand. The next thing I see is a dark figure coming towards me. Before I could clearly see it, a vision came before me. I was taken to the base of the largest tree I had ever seen, then whisked away to another vision; a woman weeping over a small body. Then a third vision of a man in a hood and covered in darkness. As the visions faded away, I saw a light far off. I moved toward it but was stopped by a voice that said to move to the light is to move towards my own death. The voice went on to say that I have been chosen; chosen to stop a darkness from taking over, to aid those who will help me. Then the room began to crumble, so I took the stone, shot back through the river and headed back to my forge to collect my gear. After consulting with my clan elders. I set off from The Black Mountains towards the elf-lands.

I met up with a caravan of traders in Stonelock and started towards Thalris. On the road, bugbears began attacking my company. I slaughtered all those who seeked to harm my fellow travelers. We made it to Lundara. I was heading to the tavern when I heard a woman shriek. I went to see what the commotion was, and I see a woman running towards me get hit with an arrow. I tried to protect her, but an arrow came from behind me and hit her in the heart. Seconds away from death, I heal her with my Earth’s Blood and get her to cover. Arrows sang by us and clanged on the building walls, curses spat by the shooters. All of the sudden I hear a blade sink into a person, and a body melded out of the shadows. Upon examination, a dagger had pierced this guys spinal cord, paralyzing and killing the man instantly. Arrows stopped flying and I went to the rooftops. I could see no men, but I could feel there were recent foot indention’s on the stones. 2 sets of footprints; the first climbed up to the rooftop, the second was just there. the second pair also made a lighter indention than the first; odd. Feeling puzzled I went to check on the woman, but she vanished, also the lighter footprints appear, but didn’t leave any tracks.

Feeling very tired, I went on to the tavern, talked with the bartender for a bit, and went to sleep dwarven style, and by that I mean with a large empty mug of ale in my hand. I woke up and went to talk with the local smith, and pressed on north. I had a very blunt conversation with an elven guard at the border of the Silver-leaf Clan. He told me where I could find mines for ore. I feel the stone pull at me just as I pass the Bloodwood border. I may not know much about Elven lands, but I know that no one comes out of Bloodwood alive. I trust the protection of my bloodstone, and venture forth into Bloodwood.

Just inside the treeline, a group of human sized stones stand in a curve along the border of the trees. Seeing that it was odd, I pressed forward coming to much larger stones in the same fashion. Magic was placed on these stones and I felt the stones “memories”. Bodies lay sprawled about the forest floor, a blood chilling howl, a blurred figure, then nothing. I move between the stones, seeing the very bodies from the vision. A howl rang through the trees, and a blurry figure came racing towards me. As it came in for a killing blow, the stone from the cave began to glow in my hand and shielded me from the creature. Eventually it gave up and went off. I pressed on, coming up to an ancient fortress. I climbed through a broken portion of a wall and walked to the center. I noticed that there was no gate and anytime I faced where a gate should have been the stone glowed again. I walked toward it and the wall became a silvery liquid. As it turned out it was a portal.

There before me was the biggest tree I have ever seen! It was so massive, even the dwarven structures pale in comparison! At the base of the tree there was a fire, and sitting at the fire was a man with a wolf.

On the way they fight a Bulette and Sirideán Silver-Leaf straight up murders its guts out. Then they find the temple and Sirideán Silver-Leaf discover a way in. He goes through each arch way to discover one hall is covered in runes that pushed him out using and magic. The center hall held a summon rune. The third was covered in writings, ancient writings. The old man informed him that this was the language of creation and closely linked to magic, as well as long since been lost. He went into the center hall and slayed a strange tentacle beast. On the other side of the hall he retrieved an amulet of Gravitas and and found some books in the room. One contained the language of creation. Then he used the amulet you walk through the wind hall on the left and found a scroll containing both common and the language of creation, but it appears incomplete.

Then he went into the Blood Wood and found the Old Fort. There he found the alter inside. Holding the stone against it he saw the alter as it was. The stone was carved into a lamb with the body of a lion and a strange symbol on it.

Borin's Calling
Borins journey begins.

Borin was at his forge when he felt a tug deep within himself. Curious, he delved deep into the mountains and discovered a stone with a symbol upon it. Upon touching it the symbol was burned into his hand and he had a vision. When he awoke, the chamber was collapsing. He rushed back to safety and his forge, feeling the tug once more. He felt lead to a forest he believed to be in the Elven lands. After telling the clan leaders of his departure he left. On the road he met a caravan of traders and agreed to travel with them. Along the way they were attacked by ten Bugbears. Borin attacked first, surrounded by four of the thieves. He swung his mighty axe, Foehammer, deep into the chest plate of its first victim, giving it the taste of blood. Spinning he jabbed with the spear point of the weapon, but only grazed one of them. Then the monsters returned in kind, Far more poorly however. Not one of them landed a blow on the deft dwarf as he dodged and parried. Thinking his enemies to be more stupid then he could have hoped, Borin taunted them. He was right. In their anger the foolish thieves hit each other, some killing their comrades. With a great war cry Borin was down to the last six. He swung low at the one before him, lopping off his legs and finishing the creature with a jab in the eye. Then One of the creatures attacked. He landed a blow upon Borins shoulder with his morning star. However, this proved unwise. Borin stood dangerously still and with a growl only a dwarf can give, turned. His battle axe hung in one hand as he glared up into the eyes of his new target. “Now i’m MAD” He cried, twisting around and slashing the morning star away he stabbed the BugBear in his center. Sensing Another behind him he ducked and slid around, staying low. The Bugbear cried out as his conrad stabbed through his heart instead of the dwarfs. Taking the opportunity, Borin slashed at the back of his new attackers legs, bringing him down, and lopped off his head. With two left, Borin attacked. The next victim raised his shield, but Foehammer slider though it, going deep into his arm. The last unharmed Bugbear ran for his life as his injured friend swung at Borin. The dwarf caught the swing and for the morning star away form his hand. Slowly he drew his battle axe, watching the fear in his enemies eyes, and cleaved his head in two.
So he continued his journey to Lundara. When there he was traveling through the streets when he hears a woman scream. Running to her aid, he found her just to see her get shot in the back with an arrow. He immediately went to protect her, but she took another arrow. Using his stone powers, he healed her and took her to cover. Another arrow was released, but it was blocked by something, causing it to clatter down the street with the sounds of wood and metal hitting stone. Then a body dropped from a nearby roof. Borin went to investigate, but did not find much. When he went back to help the woman, she was gone. So he slept for the night then continued on his journey, following the tug from the stone. He ended up in the Blood Wood, where he encountered the mysterious monster within, but the stone protected him. Deeper in the wood he found an ancient fort and a portal that lead to the Great Tree and an Elf in front of a fire.

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.
