The Fate of Tyr

Finding The People's Triumph

We start with a compel based on the problem I came up with during prep.

Because you have the aspect, “I will find the queen’s assassin by joining The People’s Triumph,” and “Position in Blacksmith Guild upset by assassination allegation” is an issue, and Zheena Blackfoot has the “opposes Lillianna” aspect, it implies that Zheena would be looking for any excuse to have you dismissed. Therefore, being discovered at the meeting for The People’s Triumph would probably be a big problem for you.

Backstory: Zheena calls Lillianna out in guild meeting for being sympathetic to The People’s Triumph, maybe a member, and implying that Lillianna is the assassin. Lillianna gets the meeting back on track. Later, she moves forward on her plans to meet with The People’s Triumph by traveling to Stonebrook for a few days to drum up a contact. She makes her way into the meeting when it’s interrupted by local law enforcement.

The meeting is taking place in a seedy bar’s basement. The room is crowded and dimly lit. Lillianna makes herself scarce by saying little and wearing a hood. The talk is largely propaganda-type speeches railing against the local government. Local law enforcement comes to break it up, and Lillianna takes one of the leaders with her out the window. The alleyway behind the tavern turns a corner and leads them straight into the arms of the town guards. They run for it, but are caught and taken to jail, where they share a cell.

In the jailhouse, Lillianna attempts to pass herself off as a leader of the movement in Ultiam to get Jerath to spill the beans on who the assassin is. Jerath divulges the information, but not without suspicion, and she will check with her contacts in Ultiam to confirm Lillianna’s identity. The assassin is Detri Alstone, former member of the Tyrwynn family court, and she’s currently hiding in Merrigny.

Lillianna is brought before Burtle Guster, the guard captain, for interrogation. After a heated debate, Lillianna gives up the names of her People’s Triumph’s contacts in Stonebrook for her freedom, with the condition that she never return to the town again.

Lillianna decides to bring this information to Roger and most of her background, looking to make a move to being Lakeville governor, and changes her credo to, “I will become governor of Lakeville by confiding in Roger.”

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.
