The Grand Evergold Art Gallery Finally Opens!

               Twenty-five long years ago, a project began in our humble city of Redcove. A plot of land was bought, for what purpose, you may ask? To build a grand art gallery, the first of its kind!              

               And now, that art gallery will finally open, on Saturday, June 3rd, in just two weeks!

               The Biela Art Gallery is named after the talented artist, Biela Evergold. Five years ago, Biela Evergold unfortunately passed away, due to an apparently unknown illness. To make this tragedy worse, she had no living family, though she was known to have had seven adopted children at one point in time. However, this was not all bad news. Due to having no heirs for inheritance of her belongings, she generously donated all of her works to the gallery, as stated in her will.

               She gave the gallery all of riches, as well. This valuanle donation was crucial to the development of the gallery, which making the projected time go from fifteen more years to a mere five!

               The owner, Raven Blackguard, decided the gallery would be named after the late Ms. Chartene. He also promises that visitors will not be disappointed. There will also be an assortment of pieces from other talented artists, such as the famous artistic pair Ibell Crimson and Garrold Mauve. There are even rumors that a Bronze Dragon assisted the gallery in creating a replica dragon skeleton, made completely from bronze (we are told Bronze Dragons have an awful sense of humor) and enchanted to move.

               We asked him for his thoughts on the opening, and these were his words.

               “Everyone is excited about our upcoming opening. But rest assured, there is something for everyone here! We have countless works, from a variety of artists, not just the marvelous Ms. Evergold! We hope to start the trend for many more galleries, so that art can be seen by the whole world, not just the wealthy!”

               However, not all went smoothly during the art gallery’s construction. During the construction of the gallery, some workers were reported missing, upwards of forty different employees if not more. In addition, several works have been reported missing, though luckily, none of Ms. Evergold’s works were stolen. The local guard was contacted after multiple works were stolen, and have worked with the gallery to prevent anymore thefts.

               Mr. Blackguard had this to say when we approached him about the claims of missing workers, “Some couldn't handle how long this project took, and many of my employees complained about their pay being ‘too low for such a long term investment’, even though every outside source we have gone to agreed that 120 gold a week was quite generous. Many workers also managed to go ‘missing’ immediately after a statue or painting went missing as well! I have no doubts that most of the workers are merely living somewhere else with their ill-gotten wealth.”

               Nonetheless, surely the opening of Evergold’s Art Gallery this coming Monday will draw quite a crowd, and we’ll be there to report on how it goes!

What IThe Most Eternal Thing…?

               In the year 876, the races of the world live in peace with one another. Draconians and Gnomes can be seen working together, and Tieflings and Aasimar interacting with no animosity between them (or at least, as little animosity as two races descended from angels and demons can have between them), Dragonborn and Humans walk side-by-side, and generally, peace has been apparent through the world.

               It has been 65 years since the end of the Blood War, between the now combined Cygnus and Leo Kingdoms. Now known as the Orion Kingdom, the new rulers have been critical in rebuilding the world. People are recovering, and moving on from what was before. From the death and destruction.

               Art has recently begun to spring back to life. Paintings and statues, stories both fiction and not, dances and songs. Whether you work with food, wood, metal, cloth, paper, glass, clay, words, your voice, your feet or magic, art related professions are a highly respectable occupation now.

               Exploration is common, and explorers and adventurers are even more common than before. Now that the war is over, people are eager to see new places in this now peaceful world.

               In the town of Redcove, famous for the way the entire sky and sea go red at sunset, there is a new art gallery opening – the first art gallery in the world. The construction has been long, taking 25 years to build the giant gallery itself, and to collect the art, but it will be finally opening on Saturday, June 3rd.

               You are the member of a group of adventurers who have been hired to be undercover guards at the Gallery’s grand opening. The owner of the Gallery, and your employer, Raven Blackguard, thinks that it’s better to err on the side of caution, despite robberies and crime being relatively rare in Redcove. He has encouraged you all to enjoy the gallery, but to keep an eye out, just in case.

               After all, it’s just an art gallery’s opening.

               What could possibly go wrong?

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.
