Verdeel & Its Surrounds

01: Let's Start This Train Wreck

A summary only – please hit [edit] if you want to expand on anything, or click through to the links!

  • Isau the lonesome avenger, Krawk the drug-squire & Latitude the tinkerer were on the Blink Train, heading from the Western Desert towards Verdeel
  • As they passed through Portal 93, the train failed to teleport, leading to a violent derailment
  • Isau helped to organise the passengers away from the Blink Train
  • Krawk stole the Blink Train Capacitator, hid it, then found enough Cold Iron Weapons to kit out over 200 people
  • Latitude, ignoring the pleas for help, tried to find out what happened, noting the lost Blink Train Capacitator and the Cold Iron Weapons, but dismissed both as not being powerful enough
  • Krawk helped a wounded, Lady Gaglial, who was dressed in plain clothes and promised Krawk Backstage Tickets
  • With a Cold Iron Weapon in hand, the trio lead the passengers to a nearby Lightning Farm known locally the Testacl-oil
  • Latitude used the Sending Stones there to contact the Blink Train HQ and inform of the derailment. He was told to protect the train & begin to make his analysis of repairs
  • Due to the danger Latitude took Isau & Krawk along
  • A group of half-giants revealed themselves to be the contractors taking the weapons from point A to B, and wanted to protect their cargo
  • At the Blink Train the trio defended the train, in the process killing 1 merchant, threw another onto a grenade, with the final 2 taken into custody by the Blink Train HQ soldiers
  • Krawk was seriously molested by one of the merchants
  • Captain was leading the Blink Train HQ soldiers & repairers due to the unusual nature of the incident
  • Poop Hoops were in demand by the passengers

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.
