The Ivory Sea

Rocky Landing Doesn't Even Cover It

In the home stretch of a low-risk smuggling assignment to The Woodrun Isles, the crew of The Snow Wren run afoul of a starving Sickle Tail pursuing a flock of avian prey. The beleaguered beast was handily dispatched by the three crewmen, but in it's death throes the Sickle Tail severed a vital piece of rigging, causing The Master Of Tops to act quickly, stabilizing the pitching hull, but sending some vital amounts of cargo tumbling overboard and into the cloudscape.

Butchering the fallen creature in an attempt to recoup their losses, the crew was nevertheless in steep debt to one Edmund Oxsley, who's cargo they'd lost the majority of. The proprietor of The Knotted Plank was kind enough to allow Ursa and her crew to work off the debt on-island with only the exchange of her Port Papers as collateral. Having being pointed in the direction of the Nature's Nectar Bar, the local watering hole.

After navigating tumultuous social waters with a ("""""somewhat embellished""""") retelling of their encounter with the sickletail, Olly managed to secure an informant job for a young native by the name of Spruce against the Azure Crest Trading Company while Ursa negotiated a position of employment with the ACTC themselves. After putting on a show of feigned belligerence to keep themselves in the good graces of the locals, The Crew retired to their ship to rest (and sober up, in Alex's case) for the coming day.

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.
