Star Wars: Edge of the Empire

Private Log Entry 1, Sarisa Caruso - The Shuuta Star: 03:48hrs

“Cad Bane – one of the most feared mercs during the Clone Wars. Cad Bane, the Duro who stole a holicron from under the noses of the Jedi at the Jedi Temple in the last days of the Republic. Cad Bane, ruthless, fearsome, fast and our new employer…”

“There’s being stupid, and then there’s playing with fire. There’s dancing with the devil and then there’s making a contract with Cad Bane to ghost a bunch of stragglers on Kashyyyk. It’s 3am and we’re leaving in two days – the ship’s getting some new Ion engines fitted which I hope will give us an edge in moving out of harms way but she’s still just a YT-1300 light cargo ship – not something high on the list of ships I’d rather be on when heading to a hotbed of guerilla activity, Republic remnants, Rebels and Imperial overloads – and those forests…heard a lot about them, supposed to have some of the biggest trees anywhere.”

“Cad’s been kinda vague about what resistance to expect so I’m expecting the worst. What I still don’t get is how Dr. Renny Wyne is involved and why he’s playing his hand close to his chest…been busy all day overseeing to team fixing up the new engines so had no time to ask. Now it’s just me, an empty cockpit and what’s left of a bottle of Corellian brandy – the second best Corellian thing on this ship…after me of course. Caruso out”

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.
