Beanstalk

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.

Good News!
(and bad news.)

Subj: Great Event!

Corey,

Smashing good time at your kick-off event this evening! The mall cops were the perfect touch!

The good news is Gimpy stole your prototype! The bad news is he knows that the team works for me, and that I work for you. Guess it was inevitable, but was hoping to keep the operation under wraps for a bit longer.

No worries. Gimpy says he needs it for a month (guessing he doesn’t have an engineering A team), but I’ll be appropriately “worried” until we get it back.

Keep you posted.

Dennis

P.S. – I’ll have a word with Apollonia about her new Cheese Man. He comes highly regarded but I sampled everything on that spread after the corporate ninjas left, and it was all a bit off.

SuJ: Need for Cover Identity

Dennis,

You absolutely must set me up some kind of “cover” as I believe it is refered to. I need to get my latest paper “Lactose Intolerance in the Southern Brown Bandicoot” out to the Journal of Small Marupials (JSM) before that bastard Stevens at the University of New South Wales get’s his paper out. The man wouldn’t know a wallaby from a muskrat! I can’t publish under my own name anymore or that slimy piece of trash Murdoch III will track me down. I’d need a “cover” to have a degree from a decent school that justa bit off the beaten track. Any of the California schools would do (except UCLA – those ungrateful wretched refused me for tenure, something about “innapporpriate” treatment of animal test subjects!). They can take away my legs. They can take away my freedom. BUT I NEED TO BE PEER REVIEWED!

P.S. I have also attached my BRF (Bandicoot Replacement Form) # 134.

SuJ: Effects of Chlorine Fumes on Bandicoot Respiration

Dennis,

Great news! Scientific progress has been advanced! The bandicoot died!! Apparently the little bastards are very sensitive to chlorine fumes, triggering a fatal allegric reaction. I’ve attached a proposal to develop and market a Bandicoot Control Spray to deal with unwanted bandicoot infestations. Which reminds me, I was finally able to clean out the C-2 lab. Next time I’ll include an emergency stop button for the Bandicoot Cloning Device.

Subj: Suresh Patel

Corey,

On the way back from Mubai tonight, but here’s some important information on the recent tasking.

Sashi met with Patel last night. Seems he was quite cagey at first, but eventually opened up about some of his plans for WIS and the proposed maritime base for the beanstalk.

Meanwhile, the rest of our team accessed Patel’s secret se base lair (who has one of those?) that he calls Atlantis. Got access to a dolphin research vessel and used a spare Goh-Goh Kolah sub to get close. Pradeep piloted in while Inga, Seraphina, and Irwin’s bandicoot infiltrated the place.

Looks like Patel is keeping some interesting company these days. Gazprom’s Sergey Mikhailov was there, as was Emelio Borgia. Not sure what exactly they’re up to, but we’ll find out. Patel is seeing lots of them, though-in both Europe and Mumbai. Managed to get that info out of his secretary.

Most important is what Sashi found in the data they recovered. Looks like West Indian has incorporated some deep, secret elements in their plans that look an awful lot like structural sabotage. Recommend another option for base station.

Keep you posted.

Dennis

Greener Grass

Subj: Greener Grass

Corey,

Things evolved quickly after the Reaper attack. Team spotted Borgia just before everything went down. Later learned that he had assembled a squad of thugs in Italy, and they conveniently worked themselves into position on Sentosa just to witness the attack. Cute, huh? In the midst of the chaos, we “invited” Borgia back to Terpsichore for a nice dinner. (Fortunately, Goh-Goh Sec’s new AI assistant knew how to fly Borgia’s helo, since the thugs who weren’t invited and remained unconscious on the helipad, unable to fly it themselves.)

Over dinner and intense negotiations (that guy has a temper!) Borgia realized where the greener grass is, and agreed to divest from AfriTek and put his money behind Daedalus. Still don’t trust him at all, but figure we should keep friends close and enemies closer. Also hope that his investment will insulate Daedalus from the worst of his espionage. Probably have to get some extra bodyguards for myself, though.

Other important points team dug up during investigation:

Before getting to Sentosa, Borgia received a hand-off of some sort from Gimpy, who had a hand in outfitting the Reapers for this attack.

Also, Sachi recommends against pursing that new island deal further, but Du Zheng Zheng can get us a good deal on another location. Her shipping company was also involved in the attack, though not sure she’ complicit. All the more reason to keep a close eye on her.

Should be aware that likely organizer of the attack was Joey Gongalong. Will be a problem moving ahead. Will get on it.

Keep you posted.
Dennis
