The Tomb of Lord Talcet
First Adventure Ravanor Campaign

—The PCs began in Skyhaven, a small, enclosed hamlet near a tributary of the Falkin River and surrounded by boreal forests. Their hamlet had recently, within the last three weeks, been occupied by elements of a hobgoblin army which had overthrown the kingdom, possibly with infernal assistance.

Adventure Summary:

Jasper, the owner of Skyhaven’s only supply shop, had agreed to sell the PCs equipment in violation of the hobgoblin commander’s order. He was subsequently arrested by hobgoblins for illegally arming the populace and fomenting dissent. Under duress, he identified the PCs.
--A long-time friend of the PCs-,- Lexi, a half-elf ranger—-who inexplicably was working for the hobgoblin commander in administration at the command post, warned the PCs that the hobgoblins were coming to search their residence for illegal weapons (if found, they would be arrested or worse). Fortunately, she was able to take the equipment herself to Overlook Cavern (which overlooks Skyhaven) through a secret tunnel that goes under the wall surrounding the hamlet, and agreed to meet the PCs there after their residence was searched.
—By the time the PCs made it through the tunnel to the cavern, there was no sign of Lexi but they did find their equipment. After searching the caverns, they discovered drag marks and it appears Lexi was accosted and dragged through a small tunnel into a corridor of what appeared to be the rumored Tomb of Lord Talcet.
—The PCs explored the tomb encountering and defeating a giant water spider, various undead, hobgoblin forces and also discovered and talked their way out of a confrontation with a Drow scouting party. They did discover Lord Talcet is a wight and was in service to the vile Headless Lord and ultimately defeated him as well as a hobgoblin captain and his death dog. Finally, the successfully rescued Lexi from a cell and acquired a magic sword.

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.
