Underdark - Dens of torture

Delve into the Underdark
Session 1

The beginning

After our party concluded that stein the Dwarven king’s soul was stolen by Torog for an unknown reason. Duergar had infiltrated Wundabar to help sabotage the Dwarves from the inside.

After our party had discovered the Duergar and the specifics of Stein’s demise the party delved into the Underdark in an attempt to retrieve Stein’s soul.

The Hunting Grounds

After 10 days of marching through darkness the party found themselves in the Underdark’s Hunting Grounds where the many different creatures of the Underark come to feed. Our party ran across a group of Illithids feasting on some Duergars. After some debate the party ambushed the Illithids but before the a winner was able to be decided the earth shook and a monstrous creature burst through the very floor of the Underdark. This creature was a giant beast that our party decided to avoid a direct confrontation with the beast. It was a smart plan as the beast tore the Illithids to bits without even trying.


After witnessing the destruction of the illithids the party decided to investigate where the creature came from. After 30 minutes of searching the Hunting grounds our party discovered a gaing hole in the ground that seemed to burst out from below. The party followed the tunnel created by the hole and went deeper and deeper until they stumbled up criss crossing tunnels and one particularly large tunnel that the ranger had identified as the King’s Highway.


After following the Kings Highway for a few miles they discoverd a room with a distinct glow. After some deliberation the party rouge and ranger suck into the room and discovered a large room with a large dark river running through the middle of the room. The river is 100 feet across and on the other side their was a large pile of precious gems. The party not trusting this mysterious dark water determined that they would rest here for the night and decide how to handle the water the next morning.


During the night our rouge Itch and our swordmage Thom noticed that the Dark water was starting to churn and move. Itch and Thom discussed whether or not to run or stay and fight. During the discussion the waters grew rough. Thom and Itch woke the party and were preparing to flee when a huge black dragon rose up from the water. This dragon was at least 60 ft long in the neck and could have swallowed a grown man with a single gulp.


The ancient dragon questioned the adventures why they had come to his realm. Thom spoke with the Dragon Tim for some time and eventually determined that the party could help the Dragon.


The party agreed to take a dragons vow and sealed their souls into a magical contract with Tim and in return gained some of his power.


The dragon then allowed the party to sleep in his cavern.

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.
