Dragon Cult

The past that lead the party on the path
In the beginning

Rollin Rollin Rollin

Five strangers met outside the stable of ‘Anytown’, having answered an ad to act as guards for a supply wagon bound for the town of Greenest.

Cast of Characters:
Olivia – a wood elf Barbarian
Inika – a moon elf Wizard
Brog – a half orc Ranger
Ramas – a human Monk
Caterine – a drow Paladin (joins the party at a later date)
Bree – a ghostwise Cleric

With brief introductions the group heads out with the wagon. A short time later their skills are put to the test when they are ambushed by goblins. A few things were quickly learned:
1. The drunk monk had some serious moves
2. Even acting last and taking an error, a raging wood elf barbarian turns goblins to past quickly
3. The princess wizard enjoys ‘lighting’ them up. The stink of crispy goblin filled the air
4. The clerics healing cantrip quickly becomes “cure wounds” every round

With the goblins dispatched the troupe continued onto Greenest to discover it in flames and under attack. They decide that if they hope to get paid, they need to step in to make sure that their paymaster survives….

Lessons learned:
1. Stealth doesn’t work if you are walking down the middle of the street, in full day light.
2. Yelling or screaming tends to bring more bad guy’s

Fighting through town, taking down each successive group of bad guys, they make their way to the Keep and are confronted with their biggest foe yet. A dragonborn fighter. Challenged to fight Olivia steps forward and takes the challenge on behalf of the town.

Then miracles of miracles… (IE CR2 vs player lvl 2) .. she kicks his ass… (DM skills kick in and quickly ‘fix’ the story-line). They get chills as they spot a dragon flying away. A blue dragon.

So the group with several battles under their belt pick up a new member. Brog, a half-orc ranger. Given a new mission they set out to find the Dragon Cult base camp.

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.
