Shadow of the Elves

Session 0

THANDOS the half (wood) elf, Lazy GOOBER the high elf and the dark elf Pelail'ro NERYS are called to the court of the elves in the wood elf city to be given their first assignment as Binders, an ancient position of honor but also one of heavy duty, as it requires the individuals to live beyond the serene and perfect homes of the elves. High councillor TELARA of the wood elves informed the Binders that they would bring half of an ancient agreement to the nearby village of HOMMLET and have it joined with the other half in the possession of the humans there, renewing the pact of non aggression between the wood elves and the human kingdom. Councillor SELANE, distant cousin to THANDOS warned him of the danger of his task. NERYS' soon to be sister in law chastised her in front of Nerys' brother. GOOBER was provided a scroll to summon a horse after she demanded one from the council, but it was not as it seemed. BARAVIUS, her jilted ex fiancee, arranged for her to receive a faulty scroll.

A wood elf LETHALIN, guarding the waystone, entrance to the elves magical roads allowing near instant transport between stones, flirted with NERYS. He told her of Lord TOLBEN of HOMMLET.

The binders arrived to a quiet wood, followed by a loud roar and fought fleeing wolves. 

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.
