The Realms of Oosular

The Dungeon of the Black Swords
Fizwo spitting out lore...

Freeing Fizwro in the dungeon where his dog Neeko lead them, the party finds out a few tidbit of lore:

A little over 1000 years ago, the lands that include Korub and Kul Nos were ruled but a supposed "god-king" named Zaa who had originally come from the far West.  He ruled the lands for around a century, before being defeated by an alliance between the "Snakemen" (Akkas), a large cult who had ruled the land before he did, and the Black Swords who where an order of knights sworn to kill Zaa once and for all.  After their victory over Zaa however, the Black Swords were betrayed by Akkas and slaughtered.  A few of the survivors apparently were tortured and buried alive in their own dungeon/crypt.  

The Akkas defeated the knights, but they themselves mysteriously disappeared, leaving the lands in a tribal feudalism and war for the next 600 or so years, when people from the East across the Winding Sea, came to this area and carved out Kul Nos in the name of the Tor, their religion.  That was almost 300 years ago.

Who were the good guys?  The Black Swords, Zaa, or the Akkas?  The party is not sure yet, they found some books indicating that Zaa's reign was apparently one of prosperity and that the knights were on a "dark crusade".  But whether that was truth or propaganda is unknown…

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.
