Champions of Bhumant

and bugs

Well our planned ambush went fairly well considering we were out numbered by several, then once we got to the treasure cave we encountered scorpions, man they bugged us.. Takeshi kept getting knocked down and then healed enough to rise again, after a long fight the group finished the bugs off, I got to look at numerous ways that traps were effective as we went further toward the treasure. we found more treasure than we could carry out in a year. I found a few items that felt right for me and more money than I had ever dreamed of.

now if we can live to be able to spend it…

Bean's Journal Entry #2
The Case of the Murdered Man

After making short work of the Robber Baron (Le’Douche) Drayfus, we set out for a location that Swen Wall know’s about and no matter the questions he does not divulge the information requested…He just said that it is IMPORTANT that we go there. Know him to be at least a decent man (after all he did put his life on the line for the people of Skelside) I followed along. We had some difficulty crossing the River Elb at the bridge at Tauber as a recent flood had collapsed it. So we headed down towards Trier the large city at the delta of the Elb as we agreed there would be a higher chance of finding a bridge. As we journeyed down we met a ferryman who was just finishing up for the day and was going across to his home so he gave us a discounted rate. We had a short encounter with some wolves who I was able to keep out of the way, one particularly nasty one was able to take Thorn down and nearly sever his nads. Thankfully for the quick intervention of Content Not Found: null and Mori Takeshi they were able to save at least the appearance of them. As we were heading south-east into Forland we came across a man who had just appeared out of a depression in the local plains and headed away from us. To my great shame I saw Sven raise his long rifle and shot the man though the head for no reason but to do it (the man didn’t even see us). Takeshi quickly dealt a knock-out blow from the back of his exotic blade and laid low the man we had trusted to lead us to his mysterious location (I am beginning to like this foreigner). We looked into where the man came out of and found a small chest with a few hundred Florins (his meager life’s savings), we decided to take his body back to the nearest town with the money and find if he had a family. We found he had a wife and an unbelievable 10 kids, we gave her her husbands money and our condolences this caught the sheriff off guard as he did not interrogate us thoroughly. We continued onward and found out that our friend the murderer is also wanted by the Forlandi Military for an unknown (to me) reason, we were confronted by an armed Knight and his unit who came to arrest Sven, (I’m beginning to see a pattern here) Sven shot at the Knight with no prior provocation then “Halt, you are under arrest.” We were able to stay alive by some luck at alot of skill (this group is quite handy with their blades and guns (and bow’s) ). As some archer’s were firing from horseback and I can say is inspiration came over me as I ran and jumped between them whist slicing their throats before they had time to react (am I a monster? Or is this real life?). After the battle the Comte persuaded a man to join our group one Sgt. Andreas Schultz. When pressed Sven divulged why we are going further into Forland to plunder a cave of treasure…Shall I trust him or kill him? Time will tell.

Takeshi's Journal -2nd Entry

We have now freed those poor peasants from the grip of the tyrant baron, mostly by cutting him down. We decided to travel further into Forland, at the behest of the somewhat non- forthcoming Swen Wall. I have discerned that this band has the air of fate about them. I’m intrigued. I’ll follow along for now, as I can see greatness will follow us. We were attacked in the middle of the night by a ravenous pack of wolves, led by the largest wolf I have ever seen. I dispatched two of the creatures, while the rest were either slain or driven off. We had two casualties…a pair of short, fat, hairy fellows. They were…torn away badly, and though I was able to stabilize poor Thorn,I fear that his, essence of manliness may not make a full recovery. We proceeded through the countryside, and came upon a peasant, whom Swen promptly shot in the head! Fury boiled like molten metal through my veins. Cold blooded murder. This is the way of the assassin, not the warrior, and even they have some sense of honor, such as it is. I pulled my blade to strike Swen down, but reversed my grip, slashing his head with the backside of my sword. He collapsed. I immediately regretted my passion, as this is one of my companions, and I brought him to harm. Someday, I shall overcome this youthful zeal. I cannot bring myself to apologize, but I later patched his head up by way of apology. We continued on our way, only to be confronted by mounted knights. They demanded Swen surrender himself to their custody, to be taken to some general. Naturally, Swen insisted that they eat his hot lead. As the rifle boomed, and the knights charged, the spirit of the warrior came upon me. This is the first legitimate open battle that I have encountered since entering these lands, and my heart grew fierce within me in anticipation of testing my mettle against battle hardened warriors. After it was over, I had to change my opinion of them. They fell far to easily for men of war. Likely they were nothing more than well armed, but ill trained peasants. I hamstrung one war horse, sidestepping the lance and horse as they charged, and laying open the mount’s flank. Surprisingly, the man landed on his feet. Not that he lasted long enough to feel the cold steel of my katana. Others dispatched him with relative ease. Another knight came to try to run me down with his horse. The deluded fool actually thought that he would succeed where his fellow failed. I vaulted his horse, turned a somersault in the air, and decapitated him. With that, the battle was all but won, and the rest fell with no more trouble than the first had given us. We learned why we were coming this way afterward:To finish plundering the cave Swen had started his own adventure at, and receive a king’s ransom of treasure!

(Comte) That bite hurt MY marbles!!
how to kill Forlandian peasants....

I woke from a well deserved nap to find that a battle had concluded in which 8 wolves and a Dire wolf had been dispatched by my compatriots. Unfortunately the Dire Wolf managed to, how shall I delicately put this, Ripped off Thorn’s Sack!!! Well, I wasn’t about to touch that, so I enlisted the assistance of of Takeshi, who actually HAS some medical knowledge, to re-attach the boys. Fortunately Thorn was passed out when I injected him with a dose of my patented healing remedy (a needle to the groin must have HURT even if he was passed out!)!

We proceded to parts unknown under the guidance of the Prussian Swen Wall. On the way we saw a local emerging from a hole in the ground. Without provocation Swen shot the man in the head with a .50 calibre rifle!! Now I personally don’t care if Forlandian’s kill themselves down to the last man, but this did seem a bit callous. Well Thorn went into the hill and found the poor man’s life savings. In the meantime Takeshi decided it was dishonorable to kill the man in cold blood (what an odd notion, I mean it wasn’t as if it was one of us or one of his OWN countrymen or bonded servants after all……) He approached Swen and, in spite of my attempts to educate the foreigner in how to politely deliver insult by use of the gauntlet, smashed Swen upside the head laying him low for several hours! In the meantime, to appease Takeshi and Bean we packed the body on the mule deciding to turn in the money to the man’s family if he had any. Thorn complained about loss of profit so I looted the corpse finding 70 coins which I gave to him as recompense.

Upon entering town I bought us rooms at the inn using funds from the man’s chest and then convinced the man’s family, friends, and the local constable that we simply found him robbed 8 miles up the road but did recover the chest with 450 coins in it.

Leaving town we moved SE into Forland on this mysterious errand when we were accosted by a group of 8 Forlandian troops who recognized Swen and demanded he surrender. I, in turn, demanded they cease their idle prattle as I was a Ken noble and would be forced to have our group thrash them. typically they did not believe me and we proceeded to thrash them. One archer, Andreas by name, saw the wisdom of becoming my man-at-arms rather than dying a pointless death or leaving and being hung as a traitor for surrendering (another odd notion, every good Kenish knows enough to surrender as then you may escape and thrash them later (you can’t thrash them if you’re dead!)) Andreas informed me of why Swen was wanted by a Forlandian general and Swen came clean about a cave filled with riches!! It was nice of the Forlandian army to provide us with 4 war horses and 4 riding horses with which to transport more loot from the cave, as well as arms and armor from the deceased knights and men at arms. We proceeded to the cave aware that we were being followed by a large group and determined to set an ambush for them. These will probably be more Forlandish troops so I suggest we use LARGE rocks to drop on their heads as their heads will undoubtedly be difficult to damage………

Wolf Bites
Pain for Thorn

After some trekking and collecting several pelts, the camp was attacked by wolves and a dire wolf, the wolves were not too bad of a problem, however the dire wolf found me and munched on my family jewels for my attempting to shoot it… it brutally tugged on my family jewels making me pass out, when I woke I was so very sore, there were needle marks on my jewels and I had a hard time walking or riding as a result of what ever I had incurred. I think I blocked out some of what happened, later we found a man that was shot through the head, we found his treasure stash and gave it to his family. found a group of soldiers that was wanting to kill Swen, we dealt with them, later we discovered we had been being tracked by someone… hope they don’t want to play with my jewels…

Bean's Journal
Finding Heroes!!!

I was traveling with the raiding band of the Skelside Rebels when we came across a wagon train with prisoners headed to the Baron Dreyfus’ castle. We set an ambush and executed it perfectly, I am proud of the group I came to love! After the battle we sorted out that the prisoners were nothing more than at the wrong place at the wrong time, They were captured because the soldiers thought they were with the rebels.

We convinced Comte Armand De’Monet, Swen Wall, Thorn and Takeshi Mori to take up the cause to bring down the robber baron. I joined with them to show the way and to make sure they wouldn’t betray us in the end.

As we made our way to the castle Comte Armand De’Monet talked us into an audience with the Baron Drayfus, after we assuaged his concerns the Comte seduced the Baron’s wife and learned of the plight of the villagers. He then roused them to overthrow the tyrant and we won the day.

Champions of Bhumant
Chapter 1

Rejected. Despised. Loathed. I have never been in a lower place in my life. My honor is lost. My life is meaningless. I have no purpose. Nothing left to try in my home country. They don’t want me there any more, and I don’t blame them. I have found myself captured, bound, and unnecessarily restrained by soldiers who captured myself and three others for no better reason than we were in the wrong place at the wrong time. These fools. I will not be treated like an animal, tossed in the back of a cart. I am not going to go silently, nor am I going to sit idly by while the only thing left to be in this world, my katana, is taken from me and given to some honorless peasant or lord. As soon as I get the chance, heads will roll.

(Comte) Regaining Consciousness

I slowly awoke to the rocking of a wagon. Trying to stretch proved impossible as my hands were bound behind my back. I looked around cautiously and saw others in a similar situation. One, a (insert french country name here) trapper that I knew from some clandestine dealings and two others that I had never met. Before I could ask any questions a guard walking beside the wagon clutched his throat as an arrow appeared in it!! One of my fellow prisoners was stabbed at but instead the soldiers sword was buried in the wagon. I seized the opportunity to cut my bonds and lept into the second wagon to retrieve my gear. the archers and my new friends quickly dispatched the guards. I patched up a wound taken by one of my new friends.

For some reason the local villagers must have thought we were big god damned heroes as they asked us to forcibly depose the local Baron. Obviously I was drunk as I agreed to the insane plan. Incredibly it worked! I even managed to kill a soldier myself as did Cheval, my superbly trained warhorse.

So, I suppose we ARE big god damned heroes…… You know, I rather like the sound of that!


I was minding my business when I was captured by a group of soldiers, stripped of my gear. after a time of riding in the wagon a group of archers removed most of the guards, I then figured that it was prudent to help save those that were in the same situation I was so I jumped one of the guards and kept him occupied for a time until he finally knocked me to the side and swatted me with his short sword.. I now own his short sword.
We were asked by the group if we could assist in removing the Baron of Skelside Stronghold as he was cruel to the peoples of the area.
I felt akin to those people as I once was abused by people and finally headed out on my own a good 13 years ago if my reckoning is correct.
Well we finally went in with a mob at our backs and aided in taking down the Baron and his guards. I was able to earn some money for my pelts. looking forward to see what other luck I have.
I find the Comte interesting, I am curious about his device he has seemed to aid a couple of the others with, but I am also not wanting to have it used on me, it looks like it hurts.

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.
