The Chronicle of Dirty Paw

Session 2

After arriving at camp, Dirty Paw checks on the condition of Corporal Fred and Persephone. Dirty Paw fills the troops in on the King’s Mission and the events of the night previous.

Hector sings songs to mess with Ree-Ree, Dirty Paw takes offence and gags and hedgehog ties Hector. Corporal tries to convince Dirty Paw to ungag the boy. Dirty Paw instead unties one arm and instructs the boy to write in the dirt. The boy tries to explain that he was trying to knock out Ree-Ree to make him sleep and feel better. The crew discusses what to do with Hector. They settle on having Corporal talk to him while Ree-Ree stands guard in case something happens. As they are starting to talk to they hear yelling and barking dogs from a distance. They start running away and Dirty Paw sees two moles popping up out of the ground. Frederick runs to his bedroll to grab his bow.  Hector charges forward.  Ree-Ree matches his maneuver.  The first mole takes an uppercut swing with his club but misses.  The second mole takes a pot shot with this crossbow at Frederick but misses wide. Dirty Paw throws her dagger and misses.  The gems on her helmet glow and she enters the rage state. Persephone runs towards the red mist that has surrounded Dirty Paw.  She throws a metal dart at and hits a mole in the leg.  Hector sings to a mole and dazes him. Ree-Ree makes solid contact with a mole’s jaw with his battle axe. He counters but misses.  Dirty Paw screams like a banshee a splits the other mole in half from head to groin. Persephone sidesteps Hector for a spear jab but misses. Hector sings a creepy song for no effect. Ree-Ree hits the same mole again from the other side of the head, hitting him in the eye ball knocking brains out of him.  As he follows through, Ree-Ree and Frederick are terrified at a bright light being emitted from the mole’s head.  The mole’s head, alit like a beacon, has alerted dogs and angry shouting in the distance.

Session 1

Hector (“But my parents call me ‘Shit’”), the hedgehog is tending his pig flock with his pet dragon-fly, when he and the flock are attacked on the edge of the woods by giant bees, and rats. The dragon-fly panics and runs away, and Hector follows (“‘Cause he’s my best friend”). He’s captured by the rats and dragged away towards the tree-line. While dragging the rat’s mention that “this one should fetch a good price.” Hector starts singing. It really pisses off the rat’s and bee’s so they knock him out.

 

Hector wakes up in a dark room, strapped to a chair with a rat. The rat starts sizing Hector up for sale, it’s clear that they’ll be selling the little hedgehog into slavery. The rat calls for pliers, another rat comes and they start pulling out Hector’s quills. Hector struggles and knocks his chair over. The door to the room is bust down and what appears to be a huge horned demon.

 

Dirty Paw and Ree-Ree enter the room, with Dirty Paw in the lead. Ree-Ree makes for one of the rats, Dirty Paw slashes rat #1 with her long sword across the back. Ree-Ree is attacked by the rat #2, who is holding pliers with a bloody quill attached. Rat #1 attempts to flee and DP cuts him down (nearly in half). Hector stops screaming. Rat #2 swipes at Ree-Ree and Ree-Ree attacks with a battle ax and hits R2 in the arm. Dirty Paw stabs at R2 with her dagger. R2 drops the pliers and attempts to shoulder through Ree-Ree and he stops as if hitting a wall. Ree-Ree grabs R2 by the throat and yells “WHAT YOU DO? YOU USELESS” and throws it against the ground. Hector says “They pulled my quill out and frightened my pigs!”

 

Dirty Paw introduces herself and Ree-Ree as the Kingsmen, and before they can explain further Hector screams—drawing the attention of other rats coming to check out the torture. Ree-Ree pretends to be interrogating Hector, the rats aren’t fooled and send for the boss. Two rats step inside, Dirty Paw slices the first rat’s head off. Ree-Ree throws his spiked club, he misses and hits the wall. Dirty Paw tells Hector to do something, Hector says he can sing, DP “SO SING!” Dirty Paw stabs the second rat in the throat, the rat dies pitifully.

 

The battle is over and Hector starts to sing. As he sings, he gives off bright shocking light. Ree-Ree and DP are shocked by this blatant display of magic. Hector grabs some weapons from the ground, Dirty Paw insists that Hector should come with them and join them as the Shadow Talons will have great need for his magic.

 

Upon exiting the room, a gas cannister rolls between all three of them. Ree-Ree is the only one that isn’t coughing.  RR tries to attack, but a mole hits him upside the head, stunning him. DP misses an attack on the first mole and gets in the way of the second.  The second mole hits DP, also upside the head for subdural damage. Hector swings into the smoke and makes contact with the first mole underneath the jaw.  RR swings his axe with both hands and nearly decapitates the first mole. First mole misses an attack on the coughing and nearly lifeless body of DP, just catching her chain mail. Hector slashes wildly and misses the remaining mole. RR misses wide left. Dirty Paw gets up off the ground but is still coughing.  Same with Hector.  Ree-Ree is breathing normally and ready to attack. DP misses an attack while still on the ground. Hector grazes the mole. RR catches the mole in the chest with his axe and kills him.

 

The smoke dissipates, but the group sees a huge rat approach with a sickle and cannonball attached to a chain, wrapped upon his forearm. Beyond the incoming rat and moles, we can see cages jammed full of animals being ready to be sold.  There is a mass grave full of woodland creatures nearby the cages. The party runs away towards their camp to the south.  The rat wants his minions to give chase and bring him our heads.  Ree-Ree and Hector go back to camp while Dirty Paw plans to scope out the enemy camp’s operation.  DP climbs a medium sized tree and see some rats venture into the forest, but they quickly lose interest and the prospect on encountering the group in the dark.  They turn around, unsuccessful in their search, so DP climbs down and catches up with RR and Hector.

 

They get to camp.  DP orders RR to pin Hector to a tree to sleep because he’s being whiny about the sleeping situation.  RR takes damage as Hector quickly curls into a ball.

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.
