The Character Decisions
Evil alignments and the woes of a DM

Kalkatak speaking, and boy am I looking forward to this campaign; my favourite setting from my favourite books, what could go wrong?
. . . Stupid question, shouldn’t have asked xD

So I don’t like to interfere much when players go to make their characters, just as long as they’re not going to be at each other’s throats anything is fine by me. So I give out some mocked up draft sheets and get the players to fill them out.

The result? Oh it’s beautiful; 3 evil-aligned characters, each wanting to be a monster race of course. Oh, and I’ll have to track Day / Night a bit better than I usually do, what with 2 players being Vampires (the proper kind!)
Well that was ok, mock up races are done (both Vampires, and Succubi) and I’m pretty sure I can mock up a new School for our violent Bard.

Then I saw their goals in life . . .
Char Brightling wishes to build an empire for him and his family to rule, Cleptengrath Vedneth aims to collect any and all historical texts in existence, and our wonderful Fighter (who’s yet to think of a name) simply wants to beat anything considered strong into the dirt.
Wonderful goals . . only they all involve some serious opposition to Gerald Tarrant, I should have known really.
Well I can see a TPK in the future, but who knows, maybe they’ll manage to take him down after all . . . if they manage to reach level 20+ at all XD

Anyway, the plot is calling for my attention, over and 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.
