A Doppled Echo

The Past Two Years
Or, how your lives got flip, turned upside down.

You all work for a company called Vaysa Recovery, a company focused on diving into The Drop and collecting Numenera for various clients and nobility. Up until recently, you dominated the field. People would come from all over just to hire one of your diving teams. You were one of the most respected companies in all of Vatsela, and there was often talk of the owners becoming Vosts of Medo, but no one ever stepped forward in that process.

Over time, however, business began to decline and you have had to downsize- from a fleet of twelve ships and forty people, down to a single ship and a single diving team, your company now consists of five people- the three of you, your boss Gayge, and his son “Frier” Tuck who is your mechanic.

As it is, you have been offered your first job in nearly five weeks, and Gayge has reminded you of its importance at least three dozen times.

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.
