Aquitrine Nights

A Murder most foul
Or why we don't drink anything Ian gives us.
In Need of Security
Or why you never trust a bug with glasses

The story began with the characters aboard a ship coming up from the Port City to Aquitrine with supplies for the Monolith in tow. Ian was in the Crow’s nest keeping an eye out. Nate was on the deck with two of his followers keeping an eye on the supplies that were part of his project to build the monolith. Travis and Nidsa were traveling to aquitrine. Dresden was below the decks.

The boat was ambushed by a pack of marauders and their pet river squid. The boat shuddered to a halt as the squid climbed up the front of the boat and attacked travis. Meanwhile, on ropes, ambushers piled onto the boat and began attacking the passengers. Nidsa engaged with the leader of the ambushers taking a serious gut wound but dispatching the leader. Dresden summoned interplanar cat but was unable to control it and it attacked Jake who fought it off. The rest of the ambushers were dispatched and the river squid driven off.

On arrival in the city, Travis put on an exhibition of the martial skills of his warrior-monks. This gathered a large crowd who was impressed and spread the fame of the monastery. Meanwhile Ian stole jewelry from awed townsfolk.

Nate discovered that there was a serious lack of security on the monolith construction site and so pulled everyone together to travel to stone-hedge in search of additional help and money. The group began the journey to stone-hedge without complication until they arrived in the dark forest. The dark forest was known for man-eating trees that only moved at night and so the group found a circle of stones to sleep in. While on patrol a giant beatle wearing jeans and sunglasses approached the group and warned them that sleeping in such an area was an invitation to other bugs to eat them. The group thanked him and the beatle requested from Jake a coin that he had had in his possession for at least a week as reward. Without warning Travis shot the bug twice in the eyes killing it instantly. The group moved on quickly.

Arriving at the crystal lake where only stone floats, the group contracted the services of Biff the stone dwarf to assist them in crossing. Upon arrival in the city, word had already spread of nates arrival. Nate, Travis, and Ian went to speak to the city council where the acquired additional help and money. Meanwhile, Nidsa, Jake and Dresden went to a local bar. While at the bar some local stone dwarf thugs harassed them which escalated into a full brawl. Through disastrous luck the bar was completely destroyed in a fire by jake.

The group than left the city of stone-hedge. As they crossed the crystal lake, a rain of ashe settled over the lake. An ominous omen for the future.

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.
