Raiders of the Raiders of the Lost Ark

Who is Ankh?

A time after the civil war begun, a mysterious figure cloaked in countless layers of cloaks. They drift to and from the city randomly, any time theyre persued, they disappear. They have only ever been communicated with by random acts of charity, or a suspect of a major crime suddenly is found tied with evidence in front of city hall.

Typically, they are near when a strange foreign bird is circling the city. They are wanted by authorities because rich houses are being looted of priceless treasures, with the only evidence left behind being a large sum of money. They reportedly are of darker skin, and having a stoic voice.


Merchants in Rell are tied to vast fortunes from their ancestors. There are three families, with effectively infinite resources. The Quarz, The Gemmesh, and The Flagrans. Each have an ancestral specialty and run an oligarchy through shops across the city, there are no independent businesses

Culture of Rell

The remnants that lay within Rell can tell you that even still, the inhabitants are deeply connected to their gods, which explains why the artifacts located there are so powerful. Stories of a mask that will show anyone who looks at the wearer their greatest fear, a flute which was said to have been used by the gods to create the wind, and so fourth.

It is hypothesised that these powerful relics came with a price, debilitating curses. Permanently losing vision, sacrificing a family member, forever smelling like a corpse. These relics likely attributed to the strength of the old kingdom, but the curses led to the empire’s downfall as well

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.
