You arrive with Lord Tyrion at the capital, once you arrive you find yourselves in the colourful court of King Robert. Unfortunately Lord Alias sees a rather nice cat and he chases it out of the great hall and around the castle, losing Becca who saw him leave and chased him and almost losing the cat. He finds the cat has retreated to its owner, prince Tommen who is breifly more excited by mister whiskers and Alias’ interruption than his studies.

Scene four:

You arrange to meet with the Thornes and Alias’ mother outside the great sept, Becca goes first to scout the area out, and on her way back is warned by a fellow servant to stay away from the king and his family. Lady Bryeana tests how much her son knows about the faith, which as it turns out isn’t alot before asking Alias to come and visit his sisters but Rochefort refuses the invite.

Alzahalabal: 2 glory
Glalev: 2 glory

Scene five:

You go to a feast that the king wanted to hold in Alias’ honor but it seems he forgot about that at some point and it became just a feast for the sake of having one. Rochefort sits with Lord Prestan Thorne from whom he learns that the lord would be willing to force his aunt and cousins to rejoin the Lannys if they somehow get house Thornes ancestral lands released from the crown.

Meanwhile lord Alias feels quite ill at the feast and is forced to retire, if not for Becca’s timely intervention he would have become quite lost and might have had a accident of some sort.

Reilock: 4xp for Alias
Alzahalabal: 4xp for Rochefort
Glalev: 4xp for Becca

Scene six:

The next morning Alias is summoned by the King, it seems he stands accused of murdering mister whiskers by the crown prince. The small council make idle talk over whether or not Alias did it and what should be done with him if he did, it seems he might be made a ward of another lord.

Meanwhile Becca is waylaid and summoned by the master of whisperers who offers to save Alias if Becca becomes one of his spies, she refuses.

Reilock: 2 glory
Alzahalabal: 2 glory
Glalev: 2 glory

Scene seven:

You prepare for the trial and gather as much information and as many witnesses as possible with aim of proving the prince must be mistaken instead of lying. Unknown to the others Rochefort arranges a meeting with the master of coin who agrees to help get Alias off the hook in exchange for a rather horrific loan that might see Rochefort in debt for the rest of his life and the loss of his son Melial who is taken as ward by Lord Baelish to ensure Rochefort’s good intensions. After some shrewd negotiations the master of coin agrees to release the Thorne lands as well, killing two birds with one stone.

Reilock: 8xp for Alias
Alzahalabal: 8xp for Rochefort
Glalev: 8xp for Becca

Scene eight:

The trial occurs and Prince Joffrey makes a rather scathing accusation against Alias in particular attacking his character. The testimonies of Tyrion, Lord Melvan, Ser Aron and Alias himself seem pretty compelling but the trial ends when it appears the real culprit has been caught by a third party. The guilty boy is to be executed and the matter is forgotten. Lady Bryeana Lanny and her daughters, Lylian and Alenis are to be set free from the Thornes as well as Lord Prestan honours his side of the bargain.

Ahead you come across a herd of blind humans and you see that they are being kept and harvested by the likes of the ghoulish cannibals who attacked your camp. They reside in a fortified manor that guards the road along a narrow 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.
