Storm King's Thunder

The call from Nightstone

Ever since the giants started attacking the lands of small folk there has been an increase in the call for adventurers. Since the small folk are spread thin to deal with the giants, more and more raids on town's and villages have occurred. Word has spread to Waterdeep that Nightstone is in need of such adventurers, for goblin raids have been frequent. As a popular retreat for wealthy nobles they aren't equipped to deal with this threat. Lady Velrosa Nandar, the High Steward of Nightstone has reportedly been offering a reward to anyone willing and able to deal with the goblin threat. Nightstone lies east of Waterdeep and just south of Ardeep forest.

How your party came together is not my story to tell, but I know where I can begin. It all starts with a group ready to begin their first adventure. The party's motives, may it be for fame, fortune, glory or something else are as yet unknown to the world, but sight has been set on Nightstone. The party wake up to a warm morning with but a few small clouds to the sky. Prepared and well rested after a good night's rest they set off for Nightstone …

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.
