Just Another Night In Luskan

Friends Depart

Broxigar finds a few members of his order travelling through Luskan, and decides to accompany them to a close place of worship to debrief the order on his activates and the status of the artifact.

• Feeling more guilt upon learning of his friend’s death, Bibble Bop decides to accompany Broxigar to help protect him as he could not his brother.

Enter: Gabrielle

• Having already been paid, Gabrielle joins the troupe, to fight off the unknown assailants.

• Tito boy manages to take two alive, and they recover a letter from the band’s leader before hastily leaving through the back door.

Gabrielle takes the group to an unassuming door down a dark alley. Upon being let it they are greeted by Otique, who seems to be the leader of a group called the Clan of Measure in Luskan known for information gathering.

Otique explains that Gabrielle was sent to retrieve the group, as his intelligence network had led him to believe they possessed an authentic mitrhal coin.

• He promises the group shelter, a safe haven from those trying to kill them, and to help heal up Orion, who was badly wounded in the fight at The Porky. He wishes to examine the coin as all others have been fakes, and sudden closure of Mithral Hall has led to the economic crippling of Luskan.

• The next morning the companions are introduced to Maramak Fizzlewizzle, a gnome alchemist in Otique’s employ who believes he has a way of testing the coin’s authenticity.

• With Orion’s consent the short procedure proves the coin to be authentic, it visibly changing to its true form, displaying the foaming mug standard of clan Battlehammer. They believe that Bruenor, the king of Mithral Hall, and companion of the famed Drizzt Do’urden likely minted the coin.

Tori reveals the letter recovered from the band’s leader, and they decipher it to mean that the group that attacked them likely has one of the Companions of the Hall captive.

• They gather information from the surviving assailants and one confirms they have captured a Halfling and are keeping him in their hideout around the corner from The Cutlass. He tells the troupe to ask to see Ruthgar, the code name that will allow them safe entry.

Fall Of The Mighty

Gabrielle disguises the group and Otique gives Orion an ornate spiked chain that they recovered from a pirate vessel some time ago in exchange for the greatsword recovered from the mercenary band’s leader.

• Upon their arrival, the Gabrielle feints being a band of new recruits, but the disguises, particularly on Tito Boy, are not good enough and they are attacked by the occupants of the underground lair.

• A battle ensues in which a few of the dwarven assailants escape, and Tito Boy is left bleeding and unconscious, close to death.

Tori stabilizes Tito, and they hide him beneath the body of fallen dwarves and continue to another room, finding a gagged and bound halfling.

• After releasing the Halfling who introduces himself as Regis, the heroes depart, only to find all the bodies, including Tito’s missing. They quickly leave the premises and regroup at the Clan of Measure’s hideout.

Epilogue/Prologue ?
You Decide.

3 Years Ago…..

A group of adventures were tasked with finding the mayor’s two missing children. The group consisted of :

Orion, a Human Fighter who favored a chain whip as his weapon of choice.
Krausus the Half-Elf Cleric who has always strived to uphold laws of his god.
The Half-Orc Tito Boy who’s hand to hand prowess only matched his lack of patience.
The sly and devilishly witty Human Rogue Cade, who is often heard telling his faithful servant Vincent to “Write this down”.
Lastly the diminutive Gnome Ranger BibbleBop who’s skill with his homemade short bow could use some work to say the least.

The Adventurer’s journey brought them to a underground compound, that was only referred to as the “Sunless Citadel”

The companions fought their way through animated skeletons, goblins and even made the acquaintance of a kobold queen. Bypassing countless traps and even obtaining magical sap sticks (or so they thought) that they used to club a baby dragon into unconsciousness.

Through all their trials and TitoBoy’s numerous attempts to place the gnome in his satchel. The companions were only able to recover two rings that were believed to belong to the mayor’s missing children. With supplies almost exhausted and morale quickly diminishing, the companions decided to leave the “Sunless Citadel” and make their way back to town.

After returning to town and relaying the bad news to the mayor the mayor although stricken with grief, still compensated the Companions and thanked them for their help. Now that she knew the truth she could try to move on.

The companions lingered in town a while and then one by one each companion took a different path. Most of the companions went on gaining renown in Faerun, while others names have been all but forgotten. Orion and his men never fully knowing if they would see each other again.

Until today,

3 years later…

Krausus the Cleric is sitting in his study. Dripping blue wax over folded parchment, he steadily stamps the wax with a seal depicting a single silver gauntlet, the symbol of Torm. Hoping that all 3 of his letters reach his old companions in time.

Praying for guidance or a sign, he is unsure if he wants to write this last letter. His eyes are closed, and the medallion of Torm held tightly in his hand. He is about to say another prayer when he hears the sound of something falling to the ground. He smiles and offers thanks to Torm as he picks up the “magical” wooden sap stick and places it back on his mantle. Krausus sits back down and starts to write this last letter.

Honorable Cade,
I hope this letter reaches you in time…..

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.
