1. Black Barrow
Main quest

Tanner Arch, a Savvas Cragheart, Sunday, an Orchid Spellweaver and Lotus Enen, a Human Scoundrel, mercenaries looking for work, meet at the Sleeping Lion. They are approached by Jekserah, a Valrath woman, who is willing to pay them 10 gold coins to track down a thief an retrieve her stolen goods/documents.
On their way to the Black Barrow, where the thief is supposed to be,, they join a wood gathering expedition as guards, and end up saving the workers from Vermlings, without any major incidents (+10 experience each). The human even saves a puppy from certain death and brings the animal to the Black Barrow with her (+1 reputation).

Entering the Black Barrow the mercenaries find it filled with bandits and undead, but cannot find the target. They manage to vanquish the enemies (Party Achievement: First Steps) and decide to return to the city to rest before daring the Catacombs below. The human finds a map containing some old writings before leaving (Side Scenario Arcane Library 67).

Avoiding the Sleeping Lion, they head to the Brown Door. After drinking a little, they are still able to handle cultists dealing with blood vials to the city authorities (+2 reputation).

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.
