Shadow Squad

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.

Adventure 1: Listening Post Assault
"Miffing the Moff"

A trio of Rebel Alliance operatives are tasked with a covert assignment. Within the Imperial Outer Rim, Moff Tarkin (the Younger) has established a listening post to eavesdrop on his political rivals. The Rebels want this post for their own ends, so the operatives are smuggled onto the planet’s tiny spaceport.

Trekking through the woods, the group began to methodically sabotage Imperial vehicles and eliminate base security before an unexpected group of Imperial Army personnel arrived as an unexpected reinforcement. However, these soldiers proved unable to stop the three rebels from destroying them. The survivors included a captured Imperial Intelligence agent, an Imperial Officer, with the Rebels only moderately injured.

This being the first time the group has worked together, the Rebels still have to learn to fully utilize their various talents. Yet their success indicates their potential to further the cause of the Rebel Alliance in the galaxy.

Wilk: Personal Log 1
Here's an example of a Personal Log

Being involved with the Rebels feels good, which might not be a good thing. Not that I think they are bad, but the Imperials offer way too many targets that need… slaying. Rahm always cautioned me to avoid a war with the Empire, for personal reasons or political reasons. I believe he said, “When Jedi became generals in the war, few were ever taught how mentally and morally deal with the death and destruction that war is.”

A Jedi in the Empire has to survive before anything else, and can only to help those who would never receive it otherwise. The galaxy rejected what the Jedi had become in the last age, so I have to be a Jedi that Rahm says “the galaxy needs.” So joining a group of Rebels who openly fight for a return of the Old Republic’s values… kinda isn’t the low-key righteousness Rahm wants.

Rahm taught me to eliminate threats quickly, efficiently, and without emotion. I guess… I have to be a sword… used moderately to avoid being twisted or damaged by the amount of times it is used. That’s the best metaphor I could come up with. Kaya’s on the trail of Imperials who she (and the Rebels) believe are behind those terrorist attacks. Between making sure she doesn’t become as bad as the Imperials are, and trying to show due mercy to Imperials who will see that as a sign of weakness… I may be a well-used sword in no time.
