Fear Itself

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.

Grave Business
The Cravendale Chronicle

Crime:
Pinkerton Wilson Sharpe was ambushed on the road from Wichita. He and his fellow Pinkertons were on their way to Little Rock when they were attacked and robbed in the Coyote Confederation territory. The Dinwiddie Gang rigged an explosion to take them out. Only Sharpe survived the attack. He met a Choctaw native, Aia Nita, who doctored him up and the two made their way to Cravendale for safety.

Local:
Sharpe and Aia Nita helped Marshall Amos defeat an abomination created by Doc Lacey. He had sewn together body parts to re-animate his dead son, murdered by the Dinwiddie Gang. The monster had kidnapped a woman and put up a darn good fight.

Local man, known associate of the Dinwiddie Gang has gone missing. The last persons to speak with him were Wilson Sharpe and Aia Nita.

Be on the Lookout:
It was reported that the Dinwiddie Gang were attacked in the night and abandoned their hideout. The gang is at large.

Crime
About mid-day on Saturday, there was a rumble in the alley. A Chinaman cut off the arms of two local herders. The suspect, Shiro Toyotami, is at large and the Marshall issued a reward for bringing him in.

Business
Clayton Morroway and his wife, Mrs. Morroway, who have been visiting our humble town whilst overseeing the completion of the railway, left abruptly last night after an explosion at the bridge that would have connected to the Coyote Confederation lands. The setback likely cost the Black River Railroad Company a fortune and is suspected to be sabotage by the bandits who have been raiding the supply route. No word yet on if the company will give in, as this project has had a lot of bad luck and many unfortunate delays.

Town News
Little Tommy went missing. He was the fifth child in five months to disappear. An out of town Indian woman, goes by the way of Aia Nita, found him in the woods. The boy was seriously wounded and claimed Mrs. Morroway stabbed him and the Indian woman rescued him. Tommy is in good condition, but doc will see to his hysterics. We wish him a speedy recovery.

Old Nugget Mine Collapses
Yesterday afternoon there were reports of a cave-in at the Old Nugget Mine. Virgil Earp, Morgan Earp, and Doc Holliday confirmed that a section collapsed. No one was inside the mine at the time and therefore, no one was hurt or killed. The mine had been a long-time property of Archibald Francis (deceased) and is now likely public domain.
