The Lucid Theory


1459 DR

Twenty-three years have passed since the end of the War of the Dragons, and the catastrophes inflicted to Toril have not been forgotten. Ruined cities, cremated bodies, incinerated forests… are some of the scars, left to remind us of the war. People will never forget… the land will never forget… the loss and suffering of those four endless years. The War of the Dragons scarred the land so deep, with fire and brimstone, that these burning wounds brought haunting memories of the great spellplague to the world of Toril again. Misery and despair found shelter in the hearts of people once more…

Even though two terrible disasters have hit the world of Toril, the land is being healed and the people are rebuilding their homes and hopes. The last twenty-three years have been peaceful, yet painful to others. But amidst the resting, something stirs in the corners of Toril, something that will change things forever in the near future….

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.
