Heroes of Faerun

Hewnbrew Trading Co.
Episode 0

The Hewnbrew Trading Co., lead by Kurst Hewnbrew, arrived in Iriabor in the early spring to receive fresh shipments of ale and wine to sell in cities along the Trade Way. While in town Hewnbrew found a handful of travelers interested in joining him to the Sword Coast, figuring that safety in numbers would make for an easy trip on the lesser traveled Uldoon Trail.

While readying for travel with the caravan the warlock-merchant, Faust, and his companions Juniper and Jillian, met Atticus, an old barbarian from a tribe in the Sunset Mountain range north of Iriabor. Atticus, having left the solitude of the mountains following the massacre of his tribe and family by a green dragon, explained that he sought to meet up with his extended family who had left the mountains years prior. With a hearty laugh and tall tales to spare, Atticus quickly found companionship among the group.

With a small contingent in tow Hewnbrew set out for the trail, confident that his companions would be more than enough for any bandit parties that might be foolish enough to come upon them.

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.
