Return to Chipkugan

Dear Mom and Dad
A letter home, from Shosuro Kano

Today was a strange, strange day. I am sending this with a curious colored glass mirror I purchased from a Unicorn, they are a strange people with strange ways. One of my fellow new Magistrates is a Unicorn, she has a giant horse. She is quiet, but seems as if she means well enough and looks like a fearsome fighter. I saw her fight a Shiba to a standstill, which should tell you a thing or two. My other companion, or former companion now, I guess, was a Mantis who seemed to be somewhat of a disagreeable fellow. A little better than an animal, maybe, although Unicorn-san’s horse never spit on me so perhaps he was worse. He seems to have stolen some scrolls from an Isawa, but ran off before he could be asked how he got them. So strange. I remember the seeking and hiding games when we were little and I was still back home, and the storytelling games.

I do not think this Mantis would have been good at them.

Not at all.

Still, it was good to see the world. Such a curious place. I also enclose a butterfly I found, they are so pretty. Maybe I will return one day to visit you in person, it has been so many years.


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.
