Villains International League of Evil

Diary of a one T.H.Pipplin, esq.
Found buried underneath rubble, Munchkintown

Sol.14

Darling dearest Diary, fraptious news! During today’s pumpkin festival, a stranger did arrive! He was dressed in such armour and rode such a magnificent steed he must surely be a knight, from a story, on his way along the yellow brick road! Oh, we got all giddy when he asked for a place to stay the night, and Mayor Shineykind graciously offered the biggest barn in all munchkintown for him to sleep in! He slumbers even now, his lovely steed making its sweet, sweet snore, oh what japes!

Sol.17

Dearest Diary, the stranger came out of the barn today to examine our little patch of yellow brick road. He must still be very worn out from his journey, as his language was just a little rough and he must have been very upset to accidently knock over that fruit stall.

Sol.22

The stranger broke P.C.Plods nose today with a shovel he had borrowed from the barn. Mr Plod will be all right, says doctor Prune, but what on earth is he doing to the road?

Sol.24

Today the minstrels arrived! I am fond of the minstrels, for their jolly larks and tall tales make the whole town laugh, and why, when they play, we all burst into song! They played all the favourites, the song of Gindach, Luvon and Alzen Blackshadow, the ballad of the Divine Michael of Radiance, and even a ditty of the brilliant boy genius of Puddleduck Green and his trusty dog, of which the children do so enjoy. Unfortunately, the stranger seems to have taken a dislike to the “Great tale of Sir Galiant, Captain Fabulous and the Knights of Niceness”. The funeral is on tuesday, for all the bits we have left to bury.

Sol.26

The stranger has gone mad! Mr Plod finally awoke from his coma today to tell us dreadful news – he is trying to damage the yellow brick road! Mayor Shineykind has gathered us together and we’re going to have a town meeting to sort this all out with the stranger – I’m sure it’s just a misunderst-

_From here on out, the diary is illegible, as a large quanity of blood has seeped through and damaged the paper. It was unearthed a few weeks after the Emerald Authorities discovered the desolation of munchkintown, along with a large notice reading “Sod your road”, painstakingly constructed from many, many bricks of the yellow brick road. _

Octavian's Journal
A rather strange team

So after joining this V.I.L.E organisation I was expecting to meet a veritable group of other “villains” whom I was to work with and defeat the schemes of the so called “heroes”. However, much to my displeasure, I was met with a very different sight. A man and a dinosaur screaming at a barmaid and a door too small for the beast to get through. An insane doctor who was defeated by a child and his dog. Admittedly the gargoyle was reasonable. He rarely disagreed with me and was flattering. As well he should be. Although this visage is somewhat soured when we realised all he does is lie. Then the ifrit. A terrifying sorceress, and well she knows it. Thankfully myself, the doctor and her were able to have a civilised conversation only interrupted frequently by the yells of the so called captain.

Eventually we were called away to the headquarters of V.I.L.E well one of them anyway. We were brought along with another individual, a hag for lack of a better name. We were told by some rather arrogant (by my standards I might add) man that one of us weren’t villains. At which point the hag was promptly shot. Not one to miss an opportunity I began siphoning off blood from her. Who knows maybe she was of some value. But aside from that we were given our orders. Infiltrate a prison, release a prisoner with her joining the organisation. It seemed simple enough.

Well that was until… well we stated. Immediately the gargoyle attracted the attention of guards and fled into the distance being chased. The Captain charged in killing the guards in the gatehouse. Deciding this was an ample enough distraction I said to the remaining two that we should head round the back and sneak in. Scaling the wall with minimal issue,I saw the sorceress and doctor had the situation under control and wen into the prison itself.

It was here I discovered it was an all female prison. Why did it have to be an all female prison. Finding our charge I went into the lower levels in search of her. It went as well as could be expected. I did get the job done, but only with the tatters of my dignity intact. Everyone of them terrified me to my core. Especially the drow. My skin is not for clothing!

But I digress, I for lack of a better word fled the prison with an army of terrifying convicts behind and indeed in front of me. The doctor blew a hole in the wall to allow for their escape and as I described the escape to the sorceress she asked what I did about the two empty cells. I said they were irrelevant but she disagreed heading back in.

I made my report to Rumpelstiltskin and went after the sorceress. What she found was quite the marvel if utterly terrifying.

A Bill describing of a Most Malingerious man
Found plastered outside an inn

To all to whom it may ye concern, the Wanted Man knowne as “Captain Bastarde” is once again Writ at large. His crimes, being many and manifolde are described as thus : three hundred and fortie four counts of Petty Larceny; two hundred and nintie three of Wounding; fourtie and two of Brigandry; a hundred of Murder; seven hundred and nintie six of Blasmphemy and Befouling the Air; nintie of property damage; four of Cattle Theft; one of Arson in a Dockyard; and four hundred and fiftie of litering.

He stands 3 and a half cubits high, and wears armour brandished in a multiude of Foul Words in many language. His voice is course from his tulmoutous shouting, and is a Rough Unhewn man in many ways.

He rides the unforgiven beast known to him as Higby; it is a great lizard with teeth such as those of a thousands swords. It is guiltie of the crime of embezzlement.

Should either arrive in your localitie, approach them naught, for they are great harbingers of foulness and wrong. Your local constabulrie should send a message to either Captain Fabulous or Sir Galant and the Local Order of the Knights of Niceness

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.
