Baker's World of Greyhawk

Sept 1 Session - Cancellation

OK, I know you guys will get sick of this but I need to cancel this weeks attempted play date. I’m working through a tough time in the family as my Mom has been diagnosed with a nasty, quick acting, and very terminal cancer. For the most part, I’m finding it hard at the moment to concentrate on making this experience a good one for you guys and just need maybe another week or two to get my shit together.

I know it sucks, but honestly, I just need some time to come to grips with this and arrange some things family-wise. I’ll be in touch and don’t expect this hiatus to last long (another week? Tops?)

In advance, thanks for understanding and I really do want to make this work – the timing is just really bad. :(

Any questions, please let me know.

Updates For Tuesday, July 28
Get yer goods before the getting gets good.

Remember to add your EXP for last week and do any leveling up before we start this week.

On the Eve of Adventure
A Gathering of Motley Fooles - or Something

Still looking around at this Obsidian Portal thing, trying to get to know everything so I can use it for everyone’s benefit. I’m still trying to figure out if Player Characters can create their own profiles or if I have to enter them.

Would be nice to let players add/edit their own. Would be nice to have an individual “Players Notes” type page that they could either share with everyone or mark certain things private so they can always access notes online as well.

You may see a number of different players/characters show up in the listing for this campaign as I need to create fake ones so I can see what it looks like from the PC/nonDM point of view since I see everything while logged in as the administrator.

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.
