When we last left our heroes, they were sleeping at Frothgar the Blue’s house. Late in the night the Kender gets up to quench her thirst, when she is grabbed from behind and a dagger is held to her throat. To this day she still recalls the chilling words:

" Come with us and your death will be a swift one"

Instinctively, the kender breaks free of the grasp, and knocks over a bag of flour to create a smokescreen, and then yells for help. Nathaniel, Frothgar, and Rufus are soon up in arms. The battle begins!

There are four tall, thin figures they are dressed in black, and are carrying longswords:

Frothgar unleashes a lightning bolt but it arcs around one of the figures, he deduces that they have magic resistance. Next, Rufus jumps down on one of them from the stairs. A one-sided fight occurs with the only injury being Nathaniel taking 2 points of damage, where as the invaders are all dead.

The kill count: Frothgar: 1 kill, Rufus: 2 kills, Nathaniel: 1 kill, Bruna: 1 failed sneak attack.

Frothgar tells them (using his psychic powers ) that these men are assassins hired by the king of Olympia ( Again, the city not the mystic realm) to kill them. He tells them that they are no longer safe here, and to flee. Before they leave, Frothgar shakes down the Kender and finds several of his potions, his magical apparatus, and a scroll of light. He takes no offense, as he knows the Kender are kleptomaniacs. As they leave he tells them getting caught by the king might not be so bad…

Druid, Dog, and Thief press on into the night, growing ever more tired. Almost immediately before the sun starts to rise, they are ambushed by Olympian rangers.

The party does not put up a fight, because:

1. they are outnumbered 3 to 18.
2. They are exhausted.

As they prepare to be questioned, Bruna slips her bag of stolen jewels into Nathaniel’s pack before it is searched. The interrogator tricks them into revealing the incident with the Asassians. When the interrogator yells at the Kender, she swears at him, as he gets up to beat her, Nathaniel punches him in the face. So now they are charged with:

Nathaniel: Arson, Murder, Theft ( the jewels), Fleeing punishment, assaulting an officer. Sentence: Death.

Bruna: Theft, murder accesory, verbally assaulting an officer, fleeing punishment.
Sentence: 40 years.

Rufus: Murder .
Sentence: Death and then eaten ( animals have no rights)

They are loaded onto a prison ship, and the Kender is beaten bloody for trying to stab a guard. A friendly guard named Gedlin Farseer makes conversation with them, tells them the next stop is to pick up a Dwarven Heretic….

Bruna and Nathaniel

Our story begins with Bruna Half-Wine running from some guards images.jpg

She is tired and sweating, for she is not accustomed to running long distances, she is only ahead due to the fact that she is fleet of foot. (for full info and back-story visit her wiki)

She was breathing in and out, “this game of chase is becoming tiring!” the kender thought, she didn’t know if she would hold out much longer. Just then she rounded a corner and scurried up a tree within seconds like a squirrel, the guards round the corner ( of a ruin in the forest) and they lose her and move on to continue to look for her. She is finally able to inhale and rests for several minutes.

Unbeknownst to the kender, someone else is nearby, enter Nathaniel Moonsilver Aragorn_Aragorn__________.jpg

For more info on him read his wiki.

BARK” “BARK” ( horrible onomatopoeia, i know) Rufus continued to bark at the tree, " shush Rufus! We are being hunted!" Nathaniel said piercingly. The St.Bernard continued to growl aggressively at the tree. “Who’s there?” came a small voice from the tree. Instinctively Nathaniel drew his scimitar and pointed it at the direction where the voice came from. To his suprise a small kender clambered down. “Hi !” she said in a chipper voice, " My name is Bruna!"

The two decide to travel together, when they learn they are both being hunted. They walk for a couple of hours and Rufus takes a liking to Bruna, licking her and suchSt_Bernard_Dog_001.jpg

It is growing late, and Nathaniel and Bruna take rest under a nearby tree. Whilst they are making camp an old man appears. He introduces himself as Frothgar the Blue, and invites them to stay at his house in forest. The Kender is feeling high-Strung and tries to bite the old man’s finger off, luckily Nathaniel restrains the kender. Nathaniel follows the old man back to his house, whilst they have contained Bruna in a sack. After a lengthy discussion with the wizard (Frothgar), he agrees to let Bruna out of the bag. Over a meal, Frothgar revals that he is Psion / Wizard and knows their condition. He offers them a place to sleep for the night. The heroes accept. In the middle of the night, Bruna awakens to get a drink when a hand is clasped over her mouth and a dagger to her throat.

“Come with us and you will not be harmed” A voice says. Acting on instinct Bruna knocks over a bag of flour creating a distraction (she is in the kitchen) “HELP!!” The kender cries… To be continued…

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.
