Curse Of The Crimson Throne Pathfinder

Another Sunday evening.
Who can I trust?

It is another Sunday evening. More of the regulars shuffle in. I have served here at 'Jeggy's Jug' for two months. At least it is better than 'The Tilted Elbow'.  Sixteen years it has been since I lost my Papa at the hand of Lamm. Living on the streets has taught me self reliance. Jonn, an  acquaintance in the Cerulean Society helped me get this job. Barmaid! What would Papa think of me. Papa taught me how to make locks and keys. But no-one trusts a girl that can fix locks. I am stuck waitressing and pulling ales.  Maybe than tall Halfling will come back and show me how to mix that brew we shared the other night…….

For those that lose their way, go back to the source

[Sitting at a wooden table inside the church of Sarenrae, with several opened holy tomes spread out from the golden robed pilgrim eagerly studying a text titled "The Cleansing fires of the faithful"]

Bamil discretely shifts his eyes to glance at anyone that may be watching him in this holy place. It has been more than a month of futile effort trying to locate the crime lord Gaedren Lamm by himself. Feeling his frustration growing, he has taken the advice of his family mentor and friend to seek answers in study so that the path will become clear. He reminded Bamil not to waste time that could be better spent understanding the ways of necromancy and how undead are controlled instead of watching the markets from sunrise to sunset each day.

Reading the tome again his interest peaks. He thinks that the cleansing fire aspect of the dawnflowers faithful could be applied in his magic with a bit more research and is a worthwhile use of time until he has a lead on Lamm. Today is the first time he has actually relaxed, probably due to the presence of a library filled with books, and the familiar golden robes of the clergy that take him back to his time in Osirion and of the order.

Reaching into his pocket and breaking off a bread crust to feed a small brown water rat that is nestled beneath the pilgrim robes. Nobody seems to notice this or the fact that the golden robes and black oiled hair seem to ripple like a small heatwave, briefly showing scruffy golden hair and faded red wizard robes before going back to normal.

While the rat chews the morsel Bamil thinks of how to draw on this "cleansing fire" from the dawnflower, and goes back to reading.

On the trail of a crimelord
Listening is the most efficient way to find someone

Sitting in what is becoming my 'usual' place in Jeggy's Jug, slowly drinking my mug of Baslwief Brown ale, from my own mug of course. I have been asking people for days now where I can find Gaedren, but no one seems to know or care about what he is doing to the children.

Some of the merchants I have spoken to have told me about some others also looking for Gaedren, and some of them looked quite rough. I should take care if I come to the attention of any of these others.

Looking across the room I can see and hear much of the gossip so I might as well finish this depressing Sunday with a good ale and warmth of the fire. Stopping by for the usual small service at the ruined temple of Aroden today I was informed by the clerics that the city is trying to have it all knocked down. It is always a great shame to destroy any part of our history, especially that which looked after its citizens.

Glancing down at my mug and picking it up. "Anyway, to Cayden, do good, enjoy life and stand up for what you believe in." Tomorrow is another chance to find Gaedren.

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.
