Misdeeds & Murderous Habits

As the Crow Dies
A Prelude to Possibility

Our story begins in the bustling city of Guarn, a trade center for the magical continent of Knosis. There, deep in the bowels of the City hid an Old Crow who brought together a misfit band of ruffians to do his bidding.  In the past the Crow had been the leader of a prominent crime gang known as the Crimson Callers, though they had long withered into obscurity. Outnumbered and outmatched by the likes of the Jackals and the Burning Witches, the Old Crow grew resentful until at long last he decided to act. With his new "recruits" he sought to cast his old enemies into conflict and emerge like a carrion bird and feed off of the ensuing carnage.  

His plan worked, but for a moment. Within a few days the Burning Witches were already hunting down Jackals at their dens, and his new hires were close to scoring a crate full of precious jewels that he could surely use to fund his operations in the future. But when the group framed the Black Tongues for the extermination of some thugs, the Old Crow's days became numbered. 

On the day that the jewels were to be claimed, the Old Crow received an unexpected yet familiar visitor.  The masked figure hurt him. 

The masked figure killed him.

And yet, his death would do little to affect the terrible chain of events that had already been set in motion…

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.
