Last Time on Axeus Part 6

The Vanguard’s scouts located what they believed to be one of the Shards and sent word to the heroes. Upon arriving the heroes saw that the camp had been attacked and quickly went into action. They dispatched the attackers, who were Black Hand, and attempted to salvage the camp. One survivor, Nizar, let them know what happened. They came through rifts and had some kind of astral plague on them. He informed them that the Black Hand had gone into the vault and were also here for the Shard. He also requested that they find his wife Elaine as she was part of the team of Mage Knight’s that went into the vault.

Upon entering the Vault the heroes were met by minions of the Black Hand. A Spectator and a few lackeys stood no chance against the might of the heroes. However, in another room a Fire Elemental made short work of Talon, but Zazriel quickly summoned a tidal wave and vanquished the Fire elemental. Deeper into the Vault the heroes faced a vile monster known as the Oni. The Oni hinted at knowing Zazriel, perhaps in his past lives. Before the final blow was struck the Oni was able to get away. Nearing the end of the Vault an Iron Maiden was found with a person still alive inside of it. He offered to tell the heroes where one of the Shards were if they freed him, but they decided against it.

In the final room of the vault is where the heroes finally saw what they were after, one of the Shards. However, the Black Hand was already in the process of trying to take it. Acting quickly the heroes attempted to stop them. When all seemed lost Oluwakanyinsola made a dash for the Shard and upon grabbing a hold of it he shut down.

Will the heroes obtain in the Shard, or is it too late?

After learning that the Black Hand have put a bounty on their heads, the heroes decided to try and track them down. The note they found said the meeting for payment would be in Markarth. Unfortunately their plan was spoiled as some of the heroes stood out like sore thumbs in a town full of criminals. They learned that the “Lord of Shadows” was the master of the Black Hand, but they didn’t manage to keep anyone alive to question them further. Oluwakanyinsola and Lothwyn set out on a side mission to recover some belongings from a home, but accidentally let loose an evil spirit that was trapped inside a warded chest.

Back in Amestris, Eremorn grew tired of waiting for the book that the heroes were sent to retrieve. However, the heroes grew weary of Eremorn, and decided to give the book to Maric instead. This caused Eremorn to become furious and he ordered his mages to march on the castle and retrieve the book. He requested an audience with Maric, but he had since disappeared. Lothwyn convinced the party that the book was only safe in their hands, so they set out to get the book back. Upon arriving they saw the army of Mage Knights waiting outside the castle walls. Upon entering the Throne room a furious Eremorn was demanding to see Maric, who appeared briefly after the heroes. Upon request he gave the book back to the heroes. With Eremorn now threatening to wage war with the Warden, Zazriel stepped in and told them of the great evil that was coming. He revealed who and what he was, and it was enough to make the Warden finally believe that something indeed was coming. Zazriel was able to unite the Mages and the Kingdom once again with his speech. The Warden then formed the Vanguard. A group who will be in charge of deciphering the book, and stopping this great evil. He put the heroes in charge of the Vanguard and left fate in their hands.

Back in Amestris Eremorn aided the heroes in unlocking some of their past. He informs them that someone may be trying to awaken an ancient evil that slumbers in Axeus. He believes there is 9 shards, known as keys, that may make up some kind of artifact that would allow these people to bring this ancient evil back into our world.

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.
