Thorps Journal Day 569
So long to frogdom

Oh Crap! Being a frog was kinda cool. But frogs aren’t really tough and it seems like people really want to attack frogs. It got squished and spiked and was really dead, we found a glass vase though and a little buzzy blob that Phil says is mostly useless.

After one of the caravan wagons broke down and we volunteered to stay with it for a couple weeks while some kinda part was obtained and returned with. It actually seems like and interesting place on this wide open roadway. We saw some strangely dressed humanoids. I think they may have been ancients. We found an old makeshift dwelling with the previously mentioned glass vase and an egg with holes that buzzes. Then we got attacked by some stinky badgermen. They are the ones that killed my froggy host.

A Change of Venue

It isn’t easy being green, or really anything that doesn’t look like a genetically pure human. When the world around you is a mostly brainless mutated savage mess, you tend to take an attitude of ’don’t know, don’t care." Even though the great cluster of mammals that is Nugene, are advanced in their technical wonders, they are often really dumb.

Sure I look like a frog, I am after all inhabiting the body of one. But does that mean I don’t have a powerful mind? Of course it doesn’t, I as smart as the next seaweed, and probably a lot smarter than most of the pure humans who stumble from bar to bar and use running water.

So what job does a smart frog merit in this ‘enlightened’ society? Greeter in a bar? OK fine, I sat at the bar and watched people. At first I learned to read their moods, then I learned to glean their secrets, then I found out I could actually read their minds. You wanna know where society is going to return to the ways of the ancients, well it doesn’t seem like Nugene, the people there have a lot of sick secrets.

It has been over a year and the police still refuse to listen to my advice. I have learned a lot from the thoughts of the officials who have come into the bar. One could say I have an advanced degree in policing and criminal investigation. but do they take me seriously, nope.

So here I sit on the end of the bar wowing the slack jawed yokels by saying hello and engaging in conversation over local events. I guess I know the goings on in this town as well as anyone, and still I get no respect.

So when a representative of the Crimson Blood Trading Company (ya I know how sounds like an uninspired biker gang) came to ask for help with a run I volunteered. Along with another mutant who seems to resemble a dog named Spot, a Human looking woman names Zoiekees, and a human looking man named Phil we were hired for the next day.

We started with a quick stop to an old lady with some supplies. We were almost interrupted by some vicious mutantist hobos but we dealt with it, probably no casualties. though the one who I mind blasted might not live as his body might shut down without help.

After we returned to the caravan, the caravan master (a human looking guy named Trenton McKaid) got us headed out. A talked to a fellow plant dude who had some delicious strawberries. lat in the afternoon we came upon a place where people gathered to live. Not sure of the name. I will pick up next time I have time to write.

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.
