NEXUS

Beginings
I was just minding my own business...

It was a day like any other at a NYC mall. The food court was bustling, a small stage was being set up in the entryway, and shoppers meandered the boutiques. Suddenly there was a loud crash and screams. The stage and surrounding props had been ravaged and security was rushing to the aid of injured victims of an unknown adversary. Panic ignited as crowds realized the attack and a stampeding riot broke out. A few brave souls gravitated towards the activity and witnessed a creature made of shadow wreaking havoc. They quickly began to assist by ushering civilians toward emergency exits and finding weapons to defend with. With the locals cleared, they faced the beast alone armed with whatever they could collect from the downed security guards and makeshift aerosol flamethrowers. The beast was fierce and incredibly violent and gaining the upper hand. When the fighters thought they were nearly done for, a shining portal appeared and a figure in full armor with a glowing blade stepped out to engage the monster. With their combined efforts, the creature was finally slain. Unfortunately their savior was knocked unconscious and the group was left with many questions.

Afterwards, another portal appeared and a professionally dressed gentleman emerged. He began to congratulate them on their resourcefulness and fearlessness, and then offered them a job. He introduced them to Nexus, the interdimentional task force aimed at fighting off "anomalies" that threatened the lives of those across the multiverse. Their eyes had been opened to such a vast new reality, not one of them declined.

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.
