Rick Riordan Spin-off Campaign

Traveling is HARD

Why is it never the case that a demigod learns of their true identity and take a leisurely stroll to camp? They always have to disbelieve and almost die! What a hassle?! At the hotel, Alex decided to answer the newbies questions. Little did he know that the Stymphalian Birds were gathering. When they attacked, it was chaos. Teressa stayed in the room and fought while everyone else ran away except Berk who had stupidly jumped out of a window. While Teressa valiantly slayed some of the bigger birds. Patrick and Brian stumbled down the stairs to get out of the building which led to Patrick discovering that he could do magic like he read in his books. Maybe he is a child of Hecate? In the meantime Berk got the car running and pulled it around front so that everyone had a nice exit.
The journey went on without a hitch until the party needed to stop for gas and to use the bathroom. There they encountered two meph… I mean angry nature spirits. The battle was going extremely well until one of them summoned 3 more. During the battle everyone took significant damage and Pat passed out from blood loss. Luckly the party did finish of the spirits and were able to heal up and get out of the gas station. Now the party is within reach of camp halfblood but will they find when they arrive?

Uniting the characters
Adventures at Chocolate World

Everyone came to Chocolate World for a different reason. The seasoned demigod, Alex, was taking a break before heading back to camp after a successful concert at State choir. The newbies were also there for various competitions. Patrick was attending state track; Berk, a Hockey tournament; and Brian an Art Competition. Teressa was the only one that knew that danger was present. When she had gotten there Alex had already been attacked by three skeletons and couldn’t help the others. A skeleton snuck up on Brian while the group was still unorganized and did some solid damage. When Teressa found the monster, she quickly dispatched it. She then continued looking for the group. The group met together quite on accident in the chocolate store. It was then that the skeletal mount reared its ugly head. The only person who had a weapon was Teressa. She did the brunt of the labor but Berk also managed to get a few good punches in. Alex, on the other hand, completely devoid of options, decided to distract the monster by jumping on top of it. This was a huge mistake because the mount was then able to buck him off like a bronco. Alex fell to the ground out like a light. The others were able to finish the mount and wake Alex. Alex quickly called for a retreat and with Teressa explained that the greek Pantheon is active on earth. The newbies, didn’t believe but the agreed to follow him for the time being, to his hotel to get weapons.

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.
