Pay-Per-View Chaos!
A Funny Thing Happened At The Arena...

It was nearly time for the main event of the Supers Wrestling Federation's pay-per-view event for November, "Super Carnage!"  It was to feature the SWF women's champion, Miss Fortune, versus the newcomer and number one contender, Volcano Bey.  But before that was a four-on-four tag team match, Mr. Clean, Mom's Knowing Look, Pitbull, and Bullfrog versus Mr. Beautiful, The Clown, The Mannequin, and The School Bully.  Craig Anderson was on the mic for play-by-play, while SWF Legend Dick 'Captain Luscious' Manly was filling in as the color announcer.

About halfway through the match, men's champion Mr. Beautiful, not wanting to face off one-on-one against the number one contender Mr. Clean, stretched his way out of Mr. Clean's reach and over the retaining wall into the audience.  Mr. Clean leapt directly from the top rope into the audience in hot pursuit.  But once they were surrounded in the middle of the crowd, the pair began attacking the patrons of the event!  Furthermore, the other SWF Superstars likewise climbed over the wall and proceeded to attack the audience.

Security charged out, led by SWF Security Chief Victor Weisman, to try to subdue the chaos.  The announce team of Craig Anderson and Dick 'Captain Luscious' Manly likewise jumped in, and backstage interviewer Cate McConnell charged out from the back to lend a hand.

By this time, the audience had panicked, and tried to escape through the heavy steel exit doors at the back of the many ramps around the old Glenn Armory used by the SWF as their primary facility.  They quickly discovered that the doors had been manacled from the outside!  Screaming could be heard, and patrons were trampled as they attempted to find a way out of the building.

A Series Of Unfortunate Events
Breakfast At Tiffany's (Diner)

Several employees of the Supers Wrestling Federation were having breakfast at the Riceville Station Diner.  Ring announcer Craig Anderson, talent interviewer Cate O'Malley, retired 'legacy' wrestler Captain Luscious (a.k.a. Richard "Dick" Manley), and the owner, Christoper Alan Thompson the Fifth, were holding the traditional show day breakfast when a pair of desperate young adults tried to hold up the diner.

The SWF employees in attendance quickly defused the scenario, but then discovered a group of thugs chasing a young woman across the street.  They pursued, and after rescuing her, the young woman told them several of the friends were being held hostage on the other side of the street!

Again, the wrestling company charged into danger and rescued the women from a group of Equalists.  By this time, the Glenn P.D. had arrived, and our heroes met Detective Lieutenant Murphy of the Augmented Victims Unit, who warned the wrestlers about using Gifts illegally, but let them off because they were defending the lives of others.

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.
