Rumors of the Season
Things you would have heard, on your way to the harvest festival

Major Rumors of the Season:

- The Mantis Clan rumored to be recognizing the adopted Gaijin, Yoritomo Singh with his own family name, and will be taking in members of the Kshatriya warrior cast from the now defunct Ivory Kingdoms (E.G. The Colonies). These Kshatriya will be swearing fealty to Singh and his family, and being raised to the ranks of Ji-Samuria, and has caused no end of upset amongst the more traditionalist clans of the empire.

- Hoshiri’s Legion (a large ronin army), will be marching to the Lion lands to winter, and possibly be swearing fealty to the clan and its lords.

- Moto Noleash and the Mirumoto heir, Mirumoto Shikei are rumored to be married, come spring.

- There is serious political action being taken by all the great clans, to try and court the two eldest imperial heir’s to the Iweko Dynasty, as both are now of eligible age. The Crane in particular, are lobbying hard for the privilege of marrying into the Imperial line.

- Cane and Lion are rumored to possibly have boarder conflicts come spring as negotations and trade have slowly broken down after the destroyer war. Otomo are likely going to be sent to mediate the situation come spring.

Lessor Rumors of the Season:

- Bayushi Nitoshi (the Scorpion Clan Champion), has turned down another Doji Bride offer, earning significant ire from the Crane.

- Bandit Attacks in the Ki-Rin path have become more frequent, according to certain Unicorn Sources.

- The Crab will be hosting a 20-Goblin Winter.

- Shosuro Megumi, a lauded prodigy of the clan, currently serving as a yojimbo for the senior members of the Scorpion clan, is possibly being groomed to compete for the position of Emerald Magistrate, or even perhaps, one of the Jeweled Championships.

- Rumors are, the Phoenix may be abstaining for Imperial Winter Court this season.

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.
