The Order of Shiro Macht: Legend of the Trees

Ruid Pass-Through

Following their encounter with the winter wolves near the southern boarder of the Winde Forest, the group spent the rest of the night resting-up and healing their wounds. Vera was the last to recover due the severity of her wounds.

Early in the morning, Kaitlyn had a vision(s). The first scene showed a battle between a small group of adventurers and a large red dragon. The adventurers barely survived the encounter and found themselves in a large underground forest of grey/black trees that looked distinctly like the tree found in the ancient Fataua temple. The second scene was of a courtyard that closely resembled the courtyard in the Fataua temple which contained the two trees (Pirozium and the grey/black one). Except, both of the trees appeared dead. Kaitlyn and Vera expressed concern as well as a desire to find both of these places.

In Ruid the group decided to stay the night in an inn that was recommended by Caide. They were greeted by an odd silence from the other tavern guests. Shortly after aquireing lodging for the night, a strange cloaked figure appeared and demanded something from the manager of the inn. After taking the “parcel” from the manager the stranger took about 3 steps before disappearing without a trace.

Within a few minutes the crowd returned to normal and expressed no other odd behavior. At about the time the crowd settled down, an odd man came through the front door and inquired after the previous stranger. He had the appearance of an over-dressed ranger; In contrast to his clothing, his dirty-blonde hair had a tousled appearance as if he had no care for his personal grooming. He spoke in a knowing manner and displayed knowledge of the groups members. In spite of persistent questioning by the group, he remained aloof. All that was really learned is that his name is Janos and he clearly believes the cloaked figure is out of their league.

After stocking-up on supplies, the group retired for the night in their comfortable beds. The following morning revealed another encounter with the strange cloaked figure (this time one of the patrons was accosted by the strange cloaked figure). Before the encounter finished, Janos engaged in a short, but ferocious fight with the cloaked figure which ended when it disappeared.

The group continued traveling toward the pass of Orad in search of Cenwig and his captors. near the mouth of the pass, Shydra, spied a dark figure scrambling up the side of the pass near the southern cliff. She and Thraben investigated and found a “hidden” path that seems to parallel the one that runs through the pass.

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.
