Storm King's Thunder

Character Creation

You have plenty of time to think up your characters for this adventure, but in case you need some inspiration you might want to check out the recent Unearthed Arcana articles.  They have been running through all of the classes adding different paths and flavors. They have been running through the classes alphabetically and will pick back on the 9th with the Ranger.  Since we moved the start date back all of the classes will have their new playtest paths available to choose from before we start.  

Update: They threw us a curve ball and instead of releasing the Ranger it is an entirely new class today! So I don't know what all we will be seeing before Feb 12th.

All Unearthed Arcana Articles 

Upcoming Additions:

  • Jan. 9th- Artificer! 
  • Jan. 16th- Ranger and Rogue! (2 new ranger and 1 new rogue)
  • Jan. 23rd- nothing…
  • Jan. 30th- more nothing…
  • Feb. 6th- last chance for it to be the sorcerer before we start playing….


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.
