The Lap of Luxury and Horror

The case of the Thrice dead Man who still breaths...

Mehmet Makryat has died, three times. Inspector Dupond and Charles are investigating the strange case. The facts are as follows

  • Three men were slain, by knife to the heart it is believed, in their hotel rooms
  • All three men bare an uncanny near identical appearance to one another.
  • All three men had passports identifying them as Mehmet Makryat.
  • All three men have the same fingerprints.
  • All three men have the same personal effects.
  • All local shopkeepers and known associates of Mister Makryat don’t recognise the three men who were slain.
  • The hotel staff know Mister Makryat but not the three men.
  • Both Inspector Dupond and Charles saw Mister Makryat last night talking to a strangely foreign man.
  • Chelsea Arms Hotel has even number rooms on one side and odd on the other.
  • Chelsea Arms rooms have a small window, 3’ by 10’ near the bathroom.
  • Rooms were 3, 5 and 7 of the Chelsea Arms Hotel were where the three bodies were discovered.
  • All three rooms have odd blood splatter on the bed and sheets.
  • Rooms 3,5, and 7 all have strange sigils on the wall just above the bed at chest height.
  • This Sigil is more like a greasy stain on the wall.
  • Room 2 has a sigil in the same place as the other three rooms however, it is a different.
  • Room 2 has a mark on the back of the door similar to rooms 3, 5, and 7 however it almost looks more like a branding into the door.
  • Room two has more or less been on hold for Mehmet Makryat who frequents the hotel often doing business in the surrounding area.
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.
