Silent War for Thronehouse

Informed Mechanics
Arach Looms

We begin with Sengar in Servant Larin’s apartment where he just found a servant’s sash. He also notices that next to large portrait of Larin is a framed letter that seems to be a 30th birthday card from her mother dated two years ago. There is a childhood picture of Larin and her siblings in a village Sengar recognizes: Pramlet.

The echo collective comes in with the following info: “There’s a strung-out soma-head in the tenement quarter of Prantis, swears he was a cryptoadmin for the Arachs about ten years ago. Refuses to say anything about them, but I bet he’d do anything for some pure soma.””

Seranious Armada decides to pursue this lead, taking Mystniss along with her. They enter a soma tent in an alleyway within the tenement district. There they convince a junkie to escort them through the tent to find the cryptoadmin. After a short tussle over soma, Seranious gives the junkie half her soma in exchange for his leaving.

Seranious mind writes the junkie with a ferocious intensity, rendering him essentially at his will by convincing him absolutely that he has been a long-standing member of the squad. He tells them many secrets of the Arach crytosecurity system.

Manwhile, Sengar and Rafe Rundlestaff plan to ambush Servant Larin in her home. When she arrives, she kicks Rafe to the ground instantly and restrains Sengar with a bear hug. He claims to work for Uric Arach, showing her compromised status by revealing a portion of her passphrase and the sash he found. He convinces her to join them.

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.
