Age of Apocalypse: SafeZone

Session One: “Huddled Masses”

Human Refugees congregate in Maine, spending hours in line while Human High Council Agents, such as Nicolas Smythe, assess their personal information (name, size of family, any missing loved ones). Once processed, the refugees are then loaded into transport containers the general size and shape of subway cars.

Taua and Fu Xiang meet in line, befriend each other, and are questioned by Smythe (and his Clipboard of Doom). They will be the last two to board the containers, which angers the crowd behind them. Tempers escalate; Taua and Fu try to diffuse the situation. Combat Encounter develops.

Smythe gets word that the Transports are on their way. Large explosion sounds in the distance. Moments later, a fleet of Sentinels arrives, panicking the crowd, who didn’t know what shape the transports would take.

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.
