Arabian Adventures

A Close Shave

Bartleby Sneed told Peter Paladin and Kaibosh Follensby to get Nargle “The Sharp”, a half-dwarf barber and a member/informant for the Order of the Silver Harp out of the city of Al’adim before the guards caught him. The guards were on a manhunt for all suspicious persons after a member of the Sultan’s court was show to be a spy.

Bartleby polymorphed Peter into a beautiful young girl, and Kaibosh into a small dog. They had 4 hours before they turned back.

Kaibosh squeezed through the bars on the river grate in the far side of the Sultan’s palace. He encountered a lion in the managerie, which he befriended with Animal Friendship, and asked the lion to create a distraction so he could escape into town unmolested.

Peter ran around the city, to a side entrance that was exclusive to gravediggers and farmers. Nearly molested by a gravedigger, he managed to fight off the gravedigger and push him into an open grave.

Reaching the side gate, Thomas the guard was informed of the attack and gave Peter 2 cp and told him to meet his sister Aliyah in the Bazaar for some new clothes. Thomas gathered the guards to bring the gravedigger to justice. Later, his head is found on a pike.

Kaibosh found Nargle “The Sharp” in the Bazaar telling stories and entertaining while shaving people. Kaibosh cast create water and drenched Nargle. He made the sign of the Silver Harp (2 hands crossed over the heart) as a dog and wrote in the sand to communicate.

Peter found his way into town and found Nargle just as the guards surrounded them. Nargle cut the shade cloth down while Kaibosh cast Entangle and created enough distraction to escape.

They tried to go back to Nargle’s house to gather some very important secret documents, but The Jackal was waiting with two guards. Peter created a distraction by pretending to be a whore while Nargle climbed the wall to the second floor.

As Peter was trying to seduce The Jackal, he suddenly transformed back into a human. The ensuing combat ended in The Jackal imbibing an invisibility potion, but Peter grabbed him into an armlock to the point of passing out.

The guards returned en masse just as he passed out, and they left the unconscious invisible body in the road for the guards to trip over as they ran away into the night.

They reached the hideout of The Silver Harp and it was revealed that the secret documents were maps to The Cave of Wonders, Jazir’s slave camp, and proof that the Sultan is under the thrall of Jazir.

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.

Unexpected Friends

The sealed letter that the vizier wrote was conclusive proof that he planned on marrying the Sultan’s daughter and killing the Sultan after obtaining “the treasure” from the Cave of Wonders.

The group decided to set out for the cave in 3 days, but in that time they would try to disrupt the Vizier’s plan. They left the safety of the cave, seeking transportation to take them to the Slave Camp. Finding a wheat field, they talked to the farmer to try to secure transportation. As they were talking, a contingent of royal guards, 2 elephant soldiers, archers, the Vizier, and The Jackal was approaching.

The group hid in the fields, but they were going to discover the minotaur. Kaibosh Follensby cast a COMMAND spell on the elephant, making him charge into the Vizier’s sedan chair. In the resulting chaos, the group escaped, but the elephant and the rider were executed.

Half the retinue returned to the palace, with Jazir the Vizier and The Jackal. Kaibosh Follensby sent a grasshopper to convince the other elephant that he wasn’t safe in such a murderous crew, causing yet another ruccus. As the remaining soldiers attached the rampant elephant, the group charged, casting ENTANGLE.

The minotaur cut one of the remaining soldiers in two, causing the soldiers that weren’t trapped in plant roots to flee.

They tied up the last of the soldiers and Peter Paladin the paladin cast LAY ON HANDS on the elephant. The elephant asked Kaibosh Follensby to resurrect his friend.

Nargle “The Sharp” went back into the city to get The Deacon of the local church to resurrect the elephant. The other elephant took them to a cave that served as an elephant graveyard.

More soldiers returned, searching the fields for the group. The Deacon asked for a distraction so they could save the elephant. The group lit the wheat fields on fire, causing the army to retreat.

The minotaur, seeing the farmer and his children passed out from the smoke, charged into the burning field to save them.

The Deacon raised the elephant from the dead, healed the farmer’s family, and the minotaur. He returned to the city, his deal with Nargle complete.

The elephants decided to leave the city, returning to their natural habitat on the trail of tears, the path the elephants take to the graveyard to pass on.

The group decides to follow…
