Tiny bauble

Distant Impressions
Thought resonance

Aberu slowly sips a pungent beverage while perusing the decorative manuscript; its cover calligraphically adorned with the rich Royal Purple lettering "Temporal Studies". Quietly reciting the phrase: "Point/Source can be perceived as an expression of juncture with attachments/concepts untethered prior to joining; like the creation of a fine harness, sleek and well-fitted with joints crafted to maximize movement, there are multiple types of articulation."

(Collective thought emanations experienced during source-point suggestion.)

Spangenhelm of Kesis
Societal depictions

Intention is the driving force behind technology Aberu thought, admiring the broad cross-sectioning of the spangen helm, recovered from a recent dig. A design crafted by riveting together many iron strips forming a helmet bowl. Notice the artist's expression… the reinforcement of platonic form; "it's imbued with passion… creativity" had it not been designed out of such primitive necessity. 

(Our inventions have the potential to flower into the ages, inspiring with their kindness and utility or stand as a cornerstone of perversion.)

Beckoning Bauble of Babylon
It's kinda buzzing...

"It's kinda buzzing… Aberu thought to himself" as he tinkered with the small oblong disk; which seemed a crossed between a pancake and egg. He ran his fingers along its porous surface; extremely aggravating… is it defective; Aberu considered the notion. What should I expect, probably laid in the dust for a thousand years.

(The beckoning bauble of Babylon, research of a rogue scholar intrigued by the intricacies of temporal phenomenology.)


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.
