The Sundering Worlds

Friends and Foes
Session 1

In the vibrant city of Neverwinter, two strangers chanced upon one another in the Nomad’s Inn. Amidst a rowdy scene, Corvus Cade, an exiled Elf Ranger, found a fast friend in Pekeporo, an Elf Druid on his namequest. After introductions, Gundren Rockseeker announced to the entire bar that he was looking for a squad of adventurers to escort supplies to Phandalin. Hungry for adventure, Pekeporo and Corvus immediately volunteered for the perilous mission.

The next morning, the pair departed along with K’otquchuq, Pekeporo’s direwolf companion. Lulled into a false sense of security by the uneventful journey, Pekeporo was taken by surprise when four goblins stealthily launched an ambush from the surrounding woods. Fortunately, Corvus and K’ot were prepared for the attack and launched their own offensive. Corvus unleashed a volley of expertly aimed arrows, giving his companions a first glimpse of a childhood spent honing his martial prowess. Pekeporo was left to wonder what had made his young companion such a fierce warrior.

But this was no time for rumination. Pekeporo attempted to assist his companions, but failed to illuminate their foes with Faerie Fire. This was his first taste of battle, and his inexperience was showing. Fortunately, K’ot was already in the forest ripping out a goblin’s throat with her teeth. Corvus’ aim was true and another arrow sunk directly into a goblin’s forehead. Eager to contribute, Pekeporo transformed into a direwolf, leapt into the forest and mauled another goblin. Feeling a sense of relief, the troupe pressed on, only to find the eerily abandoned haul of Gundren and Sildar Hallwinter.

After returning to his elf form, a process always slightly disappointing for K’ot, Pekeporo told K’ot to guard the wagon. With a combined sense of adventure and fidelity to their employer, the pair trekked up the nearby hill, following the muddy tracks left by the raiding party. Again impressing Pekeporo with his world-proficiency, Corvus anticipated and navigated all the traps set for them by their foes. They arrived at the mouth of a cave, where four watchgoblins were posted. Due to their stealthiness, Corvus and Pekeporo took the goblins by surprise. With Corvus as his guide, Pekeporo cut his teeth and was able to draw on the years of training provided by his Uncle T’allius. Before dealing the final death blow, the pair questioned the final goblin about the contents of the cave. The goblin’s tale was dire. A cavefull of goblins ready for a fight awaited.

Will our heroes survive the cave? Will they find their employers? Will they say, “Fuck this shit,” and go find some lady-elves? Tune in next time to find out!

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.
