Legends of Creation

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.

Storm Warning
Pilot Episode

In the Gilded Nightingale, a teahouse near the docks of Champoor, five strangers were relaxing after Calibration. Then a panicked fisherman burst in, ranting about a massive behemoth wrapped in a storm, which was on its way to Neveh.
Jayanti quickly gathered her troops and went to find a galley in order to warn the people of Neveh. Triumphant Architect of Auspicious Glory quickly convinced Kataiyida Ariel Euphalia, Sky’s Reflection Upon the Lake and Kallikrates to accompany him on the same quest.

During the four day journey to Neveh Triumphant Architect of Auspicious Glory was attacked by an assassin-priest, hired by a person or persons unknown.

On reaching Neveh, Queen Ammetu quickly recruited the heroes in defence of her city. Triumphant Architect of Auspicious Glory quickly set to work constructing a massive breakwater to shield the harbour, a massive ballista to pierce behemoth hide and reinforcing the low lying parts of the city against floods. While doing so, his blatant superhuman powers revealed him as one of the Solar Exalted.
Meanwhile Jayanti worked to improve the city’s defences, Kallikrates “convinced” various crimebosses to help out, Kataiyida Ariel Euphalia shamed the rich and powerful into contributing more and Sky’s Reflection Upon the Lake helped to convince stubborn villagers to relocate.

Four days later the behemoth-storm reached the city. Although the flood defences reduced the damage from the weather, rain-sharks swam through the rain to attack the defenders. While fighting off the sharks they were informed that the behemoth was probably heading towards the Tomb of the Storm Breaker, where the body of a Shogunate hero lies.
Fighting off the behemoths swarming spawn they reached the tomb, with less than an hour before the behemoth itself would reach the city. Unfortunately, soon after breaching the tomb Triumphant Architect of Auspicious Glory fell victim to a series of traps and was badly injured.

To Be Continued…

Eye of the Storm
Pilot Episode (part 2)

The circle continued into the Tomb of The Storm Breaker, slowly losing strength to the tombs deadly traps.
The final guardian of the tomb was a Blood Ape, a fearsome demon of the first circle and a pair of shogunate tomb-golems. During the ferocious battle Sky’s Reflection Upon the Lake had her left arm torn off by the demon, nearly killing her.
After finally defeating the demon and golems, they carried the egg of the behemoth (and Sky’s unconscious body) and lauched it back towards its mother with a catapult. Thankfully causing the behemoth to leave the half flooded city.

After the circle had some time to recover Queen Ammetu politely suggested that the circle leave the city, as they have drawn the attention of the Wyld Hunt. Having decided they probably had at least a week, the Circle decided to rest up and resupply before heading into the Northern jungle in pursuit of Triumphant Architect of Auspicious Glory’s missing sister and then eventually onto Haven.

Near the location of the ruined manse they found signs of a battle and continued on to the ruins of the Thorned Manse. There they found that the manse was inhabited by dozens of hobgoblins and a pair of raksha, the catraphract Seven Sorrows Swordsman and the lorelei Beauteous Princess of Ruin as well as their many, many mortal slaves. Among the slaves was the scavenger lord Unknowable Falchion, who had been luring expeditions to their doom.

The circle narrowly escaped the lorelei’s clutches, but discovered that Kly had exalted in a white light while fighting the Seven Sorrows Swordsman.

Love, Honour and Justice
Season 1, Episode 2

The Triumphant Architect of Auspicious Glory is reunited with hissister, when she suddenly appears and slays the Seven Sorrows Swordman. She then proceeds to destroy the other fair folk within The Thorned Manse.
The circle and Kly are unable to come to a decision on what to do about the newly freed prisoners in the ruined manse, as moving them through the jungle in their current state would be too dangerous and they were concerned about a possible attack by dragon-blooded on their return to civilisation. Kly left to see if another lunar exalt would be able to help.

Two days later, before Kly’s return a small force of dragon-blooded launched a precision assassination on Sky’s Reflection Upon the Lake. Her mother and sisters powerful evocations quickly slew her, they retrieved her body and escaped through sorcery before the circle could recover or launch any sort of counter attack.

Within a large, opulently decorated wagon an autumn haired woman reclines in a lavish gown. Visible only to her, a sparkling six-winged cherub flies in and speaks in a voice only she can hear,

The woman laughs and gestures for her slaves to bring more wine.

Unfortunately the box contained a siren assassin, who had been sent to kill Triumphant Architect of Auspicious Glory.

While the circle discussed what to do (and Kallikrates brooded), Kly of the Iron Tresses returned, giving the circle the option of leaving her to oversee things in Y’danna temporarily.
