Champions of Callidyrr

Welcome to Horsa

-Backstory

Horsa_ArtMap.jpg
The city of Horsa sits on the banks of the Swanmay River, which runs from Blackstone and the foothills of the Fairheight mountain range, through the majority of the Dernal Forest, and out to the eastern shore of Alaron. Its position at the crossroads of the Swanmay and the High King’s Road makes it a natural trading hub, and a potentially advantageous garrison point for troops.
The city is split into two areas by a sheer cliff; the upper and lower quays, and has two waterfalls. Any trade passing through by river must be transported to either side of the falls by the local porters guild. The city is surrounded by several farms and has strong stone walls on the north, east and south sides. The northeastern end of the city boasts a massive hill or butte surrounded by a small wooded area. On this butte sits Moonstone Keep, the seat of power for the Lord Warden of Horsa. The position of Lord Warden was bestowed upon Farrous Markelhay by the High King, one hundred years ago. Today, his great-grandson, Lord Farren Markelhay, upholds the honor of his station and is well loved by his subjects.
Though the city sits on the fringes of the Dernal Forest it has suffered over a long siege against the unseelie fey of the feydark and Nachtur. The goblin armies of the Great Gark have taken their toll on the city, whose walls are crumbling and citizens are on the brink of starvation. The PCs arrive in Horsa, through their various means, and explore the embattled town, its inhabitants, and its perils.

-Cast of Characters

-Important NPCs


Huedyn- The spiritual leader for Horsa, and representative for the druidic order on Alaron, Huedyn is an eccentric and reclusive person. The PCs discovered, however, that the half-elf druid was acting as a spy for the goblin armies and was actively trying serve Horsa to the Great Gark on a platter. He was defeated in the Tomb Wood, but was later reincarnated as an Unseelie Wendigo by his lover and parter in espionage, Envy.

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.
