Mad World

Mad World.

Mad World.

It’s getting bad out there, chummer. It’s always been bad, don’t get me wrong. But, it’s getting worse. At least it feels that way, ya know? People are still dying by the minute. That hasn’t been a problem to people for years, of course. But, it seems like less people are even trying to stop it. I don’t know why it feels like that, it just does.

I even hear Doc Wagon has been looking to “review their expense profiles.” Which means they’ll be responding slower, with less ammo, and less of the good stuff that keeps your clock borrowing time. Of course their motto is still something to the effect of, “Someone made you holey? We’ll keep you human,” or something like that. They’ll still be standing by your contract. That’s the only way to keep your business. But, well… A contract’s only as good as the living meatbag still paying the premium on it. They’ve been pushing the limit on who doesn’t make it, “despite severe and immediate response.” All I’m saying is, if you’re not platinum to them, well… Watch your back, chummers. And kneecaps, cranium, and every other spillage reducing piece of flesh you have.

Yeah, mates, it’s getting pretty bad. You don’t have to take my word for it; you’ll watch a few of your own go down as well, I’d wager. But, keep your wired reflexes synced up, and your chambers cleaned and oiled. Keep your spirits bound, and your commlinks overclocked, or whatever keeps your pants out of the fire. And old Jack will keep bringing you the good word. Watch your back, shoot straight, conserve ammo, and well… who knows, maybe it’s time to start cutting deals with dragons. It’s all going to hell anyway, right?

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.
