City of the Giants

June 7th
Session Zero

Hey guys.

June 7th in the afternoon I’m planning to host a Session Zero so everyone who doesn’t have access to the 5e books can get at them and make a character, and so everyone can compare notes about their plans and backstories. Throw me a text when you know if you will be coming. I should be at home most of the day, but I don’t really expect things to get rolling until around 3ish.

The first actual session of play should be two weeks later on Sunday, June 21st at 3 or 4 pm. If you have issues with the schedule, now’s the time to tell me.

From your friendly neighborhood DM,

-Rob

All the information you need to make characters can be found here, plus some extra info you can use in backstories if you like.

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.
