Savage Tidings

A Thread Pulled

“Istus is a cruel mistress.”
“Our Lady of Fate does love nothing more than to tug at a thread or two”
“A cut here, a stitch there. Redefining the lives of those she watches over”

“A bright port metropolis, still recovering from a violent rape thirty years distant”
“A man, darkened by his past. Looking for a home”
“A daughter, tear stained letter in her hands”
“A son, Idolizing his father”
“A vial with a loose stopper”
“An oil stained robin, it’s song haunting”
“A cross roads, branching in infinite directions”

“Most moments in life are preordained. Our Lady Istus protecting our souls, having the sailors sail, the farmers farm, the lords rule and all manner in between. But sometimes Our Lady of Fate needs champions, those who take to the world without her blessing, to do what she cannot. Cutting and tearing. Stitching and mending till their golden threads span the tapestry. Glowing strings crossing folds and seams. Reaching ever deeper towards the darkening heart of the pattern. Never knowing if the threads will survive the ordeal, but knowing for the sake of the loom itself they must. One such moment is upon us. Four glowing fibers have torn themselves loose of the pattern and converge on one another. For better or worse, Istus can only watch an pray”

“The sun stands high in the sky as small caravan works its way towards Sasserine by way of the highway from Cauldron. Four souls, four threads, find themselves at a crossroads…"

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.
