Shades of Wade

Session #1 - A Mysterious Introduction
Rumble w/ Bearspiders

The session began with the player characters entering the basement of an inn in Neverwinter. There they met the man that sent for them, named Telven. Telven says he knows of the character’s past and secrets, and says that they have been chosen to perform a special mission for him. But first, he wants the party to prove they are capable of such mission.

Telven tasked the group (Z, Salleek, Dijkstra, Seraphina, Phyrra and Lothar) to take care of a mad wizard located in Cragmaw Castle. The group agrees to the quest and sets off for the castle.

As the group makes their way through Neverwinter, they are stopped by a mysterious man that goes by the name of Xeos. Xeos warns the group that Telven should not be trusted. He tells the group that he will be staying at the Hammershield Inn in Neverwinter if we wish to learn more.

The party is a little confused by Xeos’s intentions and carry on with Telven’s mission. When the group reaches the outer gate of Neverwinter, they meet two ‘men’ by the names of Sildar Hallwinter and Salleek. The introduce themselves to the party and say the they are part of an organization called the Silver Swords. They say that they are in need of adventures to help regain their base of operations because it has been overrun by goblins and orcs. The party tells the two men that they are currently busy with Telven’s quest. Salleek makes a deal with the party. He says he will help the party kill the mad wizard if they help him with the goblins. The party agrees, and the 6 head off for Cragmaw Castle.

The group is 2 days walk from Cragmaw Castle when they are surprised by a group of 6 bearspiders. The group was able to kill the bearspiders with relative ease. Seraphina taking the worst of what the bearspiders had to offer.

The session ended with the group finishing the last leg of the journey to Cragmaw Castle.

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.
