Episode 1
Attack on Northill


  • The heroes each wander into the small frontier town of Northill.
  • A force made up of goblinoids and reptilians, led by a hobgoblin, surround and attack the community.
  • A defending force is assembled, and the heroes join the fight.
  • Once the rest of the enemies are engaged in battle, the hobgoblin vanishes.
  • A lizardfolk deemed “Charface” by the heroes causes a mass of shadows to envelope Town Hall and escapes.
  • After the battle, the hobgoblin is found dead in Town Hall seemingly having run himself through with his own sword.
  • Each hero is presented with a letter requesting their presence at a meeting to discuss a vital mission…
Tarkus Hill, a young scout on loan to Northill from the Dascordiin military, was out hunting when he noticed one of the local farmers running towards town at full speed. As he ran, the farmer yelled, “They’re coming! They’re coming!” Pausing only briefly as he reached Tarkus, the farmer informed him that a large force of goblinoids and reptilians had approached his farm, heading for the town. He took off again, and Tarkus followed, as quickly as he could, all the way to Town Hall.
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.
