Plagued by disease these creatures become extremely dangerous, allies and foes alike mutating into them after death if bitten. Not wanting to jump to conclusions the group waits until symptoms occur by distracting the remaining suspects. Both Elis and Ebba were redirected while the rest of the group sniffed around their abodes. ( However a fight did occur with Ebba, but was skillfully handled by Maggie. ) Other than a trap mechanism resembling half a wand of acid arrow, nothing worth noting of the quest was found. ( Other than useful potions and an heirloom recurve bow stolen for a hefty profit. ) Angel grew symptoms of infection shortly after, her companions drowning her in anti plague. All of the symptoms ceased fortunately, and in celebration the group takes on yet again disguises to bail themselves out of trouble. Slaying three gnoll look-alikes and a stryx interloper for the bounty job, clearing their names yet again.

During this they swept the schools again to protect the children, get more dough, and obtain new info. With a successful ambush they gained a G.N.O.L.L hostage, a carriage containing tomtoes, and mechanical work dogs.

Not-so-humble Beginnings
Daemon Seed's Hell of a Drug

Our hero’s adventure begins In a mom and pop tattoo parlor. Word has spread around the streets that children have been under the effects of drugs during school hours. Specifically schools sponsored by the Boria Brigade. Every party member was unanimously bent on stopping this drug fiasco. The party gathered that the drug was Daemon seed. Known to cause deafness, blindness, and strain on the body. In addition to an increase in a particular skill, which explains children learning how to swim or unlock the mystic and vast secrets of the arcane at a very young age. Konoko was able to gather more information posing as a Boria Health Inspector. Pinpointing the company Gno Bad Foods , supplying four schools with fresh tomatoes which were spiked with the drug, confirmed by Tami. Her exact words were: "These Tomatoes are gewwwwd. " Later that evening the femme fatales skillfully steal all of the school’s supply of tomatoes. Suki was very uneasy having all of the stash at her parlor, so the group sought another way to get rid of the heat. An Orc with payment on hand took a majority of the doses. A contact of Angel pointed a lead to an Alchemist who could take care of the rest. Negotiating with him one moment, finding out only one third of the batches were spiked the other, and we have ourselves a whacked orc. Spread across three floors in a nearby hotel. Now that the group was in a load of trouble, They procure a very fine room to spend the night and cool off the flame from their names. Who knew a five star pillow fight arena only costs 50 gold? All good things must come to an end sadly, as the group was attacked by two Hit men later that evening in the lobby. Slaying one of them, a Mr. Marigold, his other peer was left alive for questioning.

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.
