Rose's rambling rambled thoughts #3
Crazy mansion time?

Things have really been strange. I had this dream that I thought was real. Maybe it was real but I don’t understand how it could be at all. We were at this mansion and there were these ghost servants? and this guy who was obsessed with his wife who died and tried to bring her back to life. But after every fail attempt, he got more desperate. We searched the house for clues and an explanation of where we were at but all we found were his failed attempts, all looking the same except for a small difference and some notes scattered around the house. We found clones of Pepe too and later on, we found clones of ourselves. To say in the least, it was a disturbing dream.

We ended up “waking up” after meeting the real master of the mansion and discovering who “Riley” was. Was it really a dream, and how do I even know if I’m really awake right now? It seems as though things are going to just get harder.

I guess it’s time for me to get serious about this adventure…

Before Ascension I: Eric Eral - A Hellish Encounter (Backstory)
The life of a farm boy isn't want you expect from a hero. Erm.. Adventurer?

15 Years before present day.

Here we have Eric, 11 years old, he runs holding a basket full of wheat and carries it inside his home. “Hey ma! I’ve finished my chores for today, can I go out and play now?”

“Of course darling, but make sure to find your brother when you come back home. He seems to have escaped your father again.” His mother, Mistel, takes the basket of wheat from him and kisses his forehead just before he darts away to play outdoors.

Half an hour passes, Eric enjoys what’s left of his day playing out in the fields, but sunset will soon arrive and he begins to look for his brother. “Matt! Where are you Matt? Matt, it’s time to go home!” Eric continues to call for his brother until he sees a tall figure on the fields which he recognizes. “Dad! Hey dad!” Eric runs towards his father as happy as he can be.

“No son stop!” Eric stops.

Right between him and his father is something he has never seen before. A Hellhound. The creature managed to corner Eric’s father and brother, but it now turns its attention towards the young Eirc.

Eric freezes, he is scared of this creature.

Having noticed the easier prey, the creature lunges towards Eric before he can even react. To Eric’s father’s horror it looks like he’s about to lose his oldest son, but at the moment a shield come flying from far away landing on the Hellhhound and knocking it down mid sprint. Eric’s father takes notice of the opportunity to carry his sons to safety before the creature has time to get up.

Just as the Hellhound begins to recover from the blow, a hail of javelins come down upon it and end its life. This is followed by about a dozen mounted knights ready to take action if the beast managed to survive.

“The creature is dead!”

“No! I think it’s still moving!”

“Where the hell did it come from?”

“I’m sure it’s dead.”

“Quick, one of you check if the farmers are okay. The rest of use will dispose of the body and await Baron Roywood.”

As most of the knights clean up after themselves , one of them goes towards Eric’s father who managed to run a long distance and asks how he and his boys are doing.

Eric’s father, out of breath, manages to say “Little Matt fainted and Eric is pretty shaken up.”

“Not to worry, we’ve finally managed to take care of the creature. Here, I’ll get off my horse and we can take your sons to a healer just to make sure they’re okay.”

Just as the knight dismounts, the leader of this small brigade comes with his horse by his side. A towering figure, he could almost eclipse both the knight and Eric’s father.

“I could smell the creature from far away, I made sure we came here as fast as we could.”

“Thank you Baron Roywood. Thank you for saving my sons.”

“I’m glad to help, but I’m sure you were capable enough to save them by yourself Sir Durant.”

“Sir Durant? I believe you must have me mistaken for someone else Baron Roywood, I am no knight.”

“A squire at the age of 14, brilliant young man knighted at 21, served Baron Artwaltz under the 3rd Guard for three years, exiled after the Night of Blood. Trust me Sir Durant, I know who you are.”

Eric’s father remains silent for a moment.

“Please, just let me live in peace.”

“I am not here to inconvenience you Sir Durant. There have been a number of reports of hellhounds here in the Ructor estate. I am here simply to get rid of these creatures before they can come to mine. It is only coincidence that our path have crossed.”

“Then, why bring up my past?”

“I wanted to see if you still considered yourself a knight, disgraced or not. I think you might also want to know the state of the Order. The House of Ructor is low on men, not enough to have a strong enough standing army to stand up to other Barons or even bold group of adventurers. I am surprised you haven’t been called to service by Baron Ructor.”

Durant turns to Eric and looks to him “I try to keep to myself and my family. We don’t really leave the farm much, my children haven’t even gone to school yet.”

“Humph. Very well then Durant.” Baron Roywood turns to the knight who came to help Durant earlier. “You are not to tell anyone of who this man truly is. He is a simple farmer who tried to protect his two sons. Now, you go lead the others and see if you can find any more of these infernal creatures, I will personally escort the farmers to their home.”

“By your command Baron Roywood.” The knight leaves.

Baron Roywood turns to Durant. “Now, let’s get your boys home so they can recover from this ordeal.”

“Thank you again, Baron Roywood.”

To be continued.

Sven & Rose BFF and ever~ <3><3><3

If I die, I want all my things to go to him!

That includes my gold and my body~

Also I want him to be in charge of setting Stargoyle free and making sure he is safe and sound!

Rose's rambling rambled thoughts #1

Nobody ever lets me do what I want. I just want to feed stargoyle EVERYTHING! I get this bad ass dragon looking dude, and everybody just keeps killing my vibe.

Everyone I’m with is boring. We got an average joe, a strict dude who doesn’t like to run into battle, some money obsessed guy and some asshole who keeps calling me a girl!

Overall though, they’re pretty fun to piss off.

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.
