From the Giants Keep

The land of Caldenbrooke
A world ravaged by war

The land of Caldenbrooke is a large one, taking a full year to travel from coast to coast in good conditions. It's most northern reaches are occupied by the Frostfire mountain range, known as the Crown Jewels of Pelor due to its ice caps reflecting the light of the sun at midday. To the south is a great desert that no one has ever successfully explored. This land is surrounded by the Great Abyss, a body of water inhabited by great sea beasts of every shape and size, with flesh as hard as steel and teeth as sharp as swords. Traveling too far off the coast often results in the total death and destruction of those who attempt it, so most people only travel via the coast or in land via the rivers or paths that connect the cities of this land. 

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.
