The Rise of Tiamat

2016.12.02 - The First Council of Waterdeep

Our heroes have once again been called together. A mysterious letter from Barry and Leosin request their help in Waterdeep. On arrival, they find that the various forces of good have gathered together – the cult is inflicting misery on the enter world and it is time to act boldly.

Though these groups don’t see eye to eye, they do agree on one thing – the adventurers have dealt some major blows to the cult, and can be trusted and looked up to in the fight against the cult. The adventurers have been bestowed with a special writ allowing them access to resources across the factions as they work to stop the cult.

Meanwhile, the cult is working to further its goals. The wyrmspeakers are planning a ritual to summon Tiamat, and their preparations are causing disturbances in the earth itself. The mighty Draakhorn is sounding, calling dragons to its side. Dala Silmerhelve has knowledge about the issue, but is not very forthcoming about her sources when confronted. Our heroes will go in seek of the horn to limit the cult’s ability to recruit chromatic dragons, and perhaps establish a relationship with metallic ones in the process.

The draakhorn reminds Percy of some symbolic carvings in the ruins under Castle Naerytar. It occurs to him that although they slew the black wyrmspeaker, they never found the black mask. Annie and Martinez prepare to return to the Mere to see if they can discover anything.

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.
