The Tales of Brightstar

The Legendary History of Brightstar

A long time ago the world was much bigger, with large spans of land, seas and oceans. But then one fateful day the world cracked. Some say it was because of the great legendary mountain of Ashenwauld that erupted and subsequently broken the world into pieces. Some say a star from the heavens fell from the sky and split up the world. While others say a large company of giants danced a synchronised version of a polka that went horribly wrong. No one truly knows why the world cracked, but everyone can agree that it happened and all that remained was the town of Brightstar and its surrounds.

The town of Brightstar and its surrounds would have surely perished if weren’t for the quick thinking of a group of wizards. First they created the standing stones that surround the edges of the land. Next they rebuilt the town of the Brightstar, and the two small villages of Sunham and Moonlake. Then they nurtured the land so it would help trees grow and flourish. From the on these wizards became the saviours and protectors of the land.

It was only natural that these wizards became the rulers this new world. It would seem impossible that they are able to run this land smoothly. But the people believe that these wizards are no ordinary wizards, as rumour has it that can control the sun, stars and moon themselves.

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.
