Path of the Burning Sky

The Indomitable Fire Forest of Innenotdar

The heroes have escaped from the city of Gate
Pass with vital military intelligence as the Ragesian
army’s assault came down upon it, and have set off
toward the town of Seaquen and the mage school
of Lyceum. The heroes, the sea-cleric
Torrent, and the haunted seer Crystin) have arrived at the
edge of the Fire Forest of Innenotdar.

Forty years ago, Innenotdar was home to an
elvish people who wanted to remain neutral in the
conflict between Ragesia and Shahalesti. One day
refugees began to flee from the forest, claiming it
had been put to the torch, though no one could
agree on who had been responsible or why. While
the refugees settled into a walled ghetto in Gate
Pass, they were shocked to learn that the fires that
had driven them from their homeland were not
dying. For forty years, Innenotdar has burned
relentlessly, with no signs that the flames will ever
either abate or burn out.

The heroes have chosen to brave this dangerous
pass because it is too hazardous for Ragesians to
pursue them therein, and because, whereas it
would take weeks to travel through the snowed
in mountain passes, with the proper magic
(potions of stand the heat, of which they possess
many), they should be able to cross the fire forest
in less than two days, taking the old Elfroad from
the Otdar mountains to the northern border of
Dassen, beyond the reach of the Ragesian army.

But the forest is still a home to some, and
Ragesia will not give up pursuit simply because
there is danger.

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.
