Streets of Rikavinne

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.

Since the coup, Gardenia and the surrounding areas of Yuvalte have been plagued with violence including from the new local population of short extremists. General Beirt sought help from the Dwarven Militia to pacify the area.  The Northern district of Klegtown continues to receive refugees from Gardenia.

Following the increasing violence in the providence of Gardenia, The Township of Sorin with the greater agreement from outer Meruve, that all travel to and from Yuvaulte shall cease until the conflict is resolved. The Church of Basille in Yuvaulte continues to declare that Yuvaulte is not a hostile land despite Dwarven reinforcements from Rikavinne coming into the country every day. Gardenia proves to be a problem for local leaders as the province staged a very short coup on surrounding villages including the village of Solenia outside Sandowine. The village having no mayor fell to the forces of Gardenia that now stand in a major chokepoint of the country.  

The Undead Threat Claims its 20th Victim 

Sadness today hangs heavy in the air as the 20th person has gone missing to what locals have called a death monster that has been sighted to stalk to the surrounding lands at night. The local guard has proved to be resistant to dispatch of the enemy leaving Sorin's citizens to fear for their safety.  The local sage was quoted as saying, "its one of those big death monsters," before flying away on his giant bird to his mountain retreat. The beast has left no bodies or traces of any of its victims behind.
