Session 1

Note: Players met and built characters.

MISSION BRIEF: Someone has been intercepting, deciphering, and communicating back to Homeline and asking for asylum. They asked for a 1 Terabyte USB-C external drive for their data, and for asylum. Go in, get him and his data, and get out.

  • Lucifer-12, a post-nuclear-apocalyptic world.
  • Locals are wary, though friendly.
  • Hired a guide and helpers, who led us in a back door to what appears to be NORAD at Cheyenne Mountain.
  • Gained access to secured room and discovered S.A.R.A., an AI that claimed to be responsible for the communications, and is seeking asylum. We plug in two of the portable drives and SARA makes two encrypted backups, with individual encryption keys, then self-destructs.
  • During the backup process, opposing forces attack. with the help of SARA, the forces are neutralized, except for their balaclava-wearing leader, who attempts to neutralize his captured forces by remotely-triggering thermite bombs on each of them.
  • One technician is captured and the thermite bomb removed before detonation. He is searched and returned to a secured location for questioning.

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.
