Arkham, 1926

Spare the Rod (part 1)

Arkham, 23rd august 1926

Miss Kawalska are visited by Mr Cassidy, a lawyer employed by the well-known author Eric Adams.
He wants Miss Kawalska to do some research regarding some alleged haunts in Arkham.
Together with Miss Quinn she started the investigations.

First stop was the Historical Society where they talked to the curator Mr Peabody and he helped them to find the legend about the satanic school teacher Seaton.

Next day the leads led them through Town Hall to the Superintendent Manton who showed them the things that was left of Seatons old school.
They also learned that an old body had been found here last week. The body is now at the Miskatonic University for examination.

That night they went to the [[Old Wooded Graveyard/Hangman’s Hill | old wooded graveyard]] where they heard that the old witch Goody Fowler was said to be haunting the place.
At the graveyard they found some strange dog-creature who chased them out of the graveyard. Outside the graveyard they run into (yes, RUN into) Miss Magnolia who was out for a nightly walk. The creature attacked her before returning to the darkness.

The trio returned home to Emericke and Harleen to look at the wounded Magnolia.

Wednesday, they decided to look for Goody Fowlers old cottage outside of Arkham.
They found the cottage. And inside the haunted cottage they found Fowler’s Grimoire.
After that they quickly returned home before it got dark.

Mr Corbitt

Arkham, 5th june 1926

Miss Quinn and Miss Kawalska realized the their neighbor Mr Corbitt collected body parts in his home.
Investigations made sure that the reason was to bring up the child-thing he had in his basement. After they had read his diary and an old book in Sanskrit (The Key and the Gate) they realized he worshiped a demon/god named Ramasekva.

Since they realized they couldn’t let the child-thing grow up, they burned his house to the ground (together with the child).
Mr Corbitt was devastated and was taken to Arkham Asylum.

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.
