Obsidian Portal Campaign of the Month July 2018 – Morwindl Rising Tide

‘Tis a strange and awful thing to try and forget. To go about your life and hope that memories fade. The quiet, emptiness of night is the worst. When the chores of the day have gone, and you lie in bed with nothing but your thoughts. It’s difficult not to have Vecna come to mind, and what nearly was. Such is our hardship here, in the kingdom of Morwindl | Rising Tide – July’s Campaign of the Month! Though the darkness has fallen, other dangers loom. Gather your courage now friends, for we travel forth in search of Bortas, the GameMaster of this epic campaign!

But first a quick announcement!

Obsidian Portal is proud to announce that our Campaign of the Month program is now sponsored by Modiphius Entertainment, publisher of such fine products as Star Trek Adventures, Robert E.
