Lift your eyes to the sky… and tremble, for we are not alone. The invasion is underway, and they are among us. The fate of humanity hangs in the balance, and the world will never be the same again. In this time of conflict, we need X-Com: Defiance – November’s Campaign of the Month! Prepare yourself, then join me as I discuss the state of affairs with cgregory, one of the GameMasters behind this classic.
Welcome to Luskan old friend, known as the “City of Sails”. If you’ll just follow me I’ll take you straight to my ship. Wouldn’t want anyone to get a good look at you. The Captains don’t know your face yet, and trust me when I say you want to keep it that way. Oh don’t worry, you’re safe enough – as long as you don’t have any enemies that you didn’t tell me about. Last thing I need is to find out you’ve got some sort of Archnemesis – October’s Campaign of the Month! Now, climb aboard and we’ll get underway. Once we’ve left port I’ll introduce you to whozyourdm, the GameMaster for this fine vessel of a campaign.
An era of exploration! A place of adventure! Follow along as a troupe of intrepid survivors muster their courage for the dangers ahead!

Seven times she will call our line. Seven times we will answer. So you’d best remain true and faithful young one, for your bloodline is pledged to the Stone. Before he died… again, your late father swore the Oath of Crows – August’s Campaign of the Month! In the name of the Lady and all her Crows, I bid you journey with me to Logres, where we’ll speak with ikabodo, the GameMaster of this monumental campaign.
Greetings Obsidian Portal Community,
I’ll have to ask your forgiveness for this temporary interruption to our regularly scheduled lineup (and for the unexpected delay in getting it out to you), but it is my hope that you’ll indulge me a bit – and that you’ll find the following site and technical updates to be something that you’re also interested in reading about. It has been right about six months since our last technical update, so I think it’s fair to say we’re due.
Over the course of this week, I had the opportunity to find out what’s been going on behind the scenes, learn more about where things sit with the site right now, and get a sense of what’s coming down the proverbial pipe as time moves on.
At some point in their career, every GM will inevitably run a mass combat. Maybe it’s all part of the campaign’s grand design – ‘the war to end all wars’; Maybe the battling hordes were supposed to be merely background description for the PCs’ mission and a few bad dice rolls put them in the middle of the jackpot; Maybe the Party kicked the proverbial hornet’s nest and was forced to “call the banners”. Whatever the case, refereeing both the Party’s combat, and the overall battle as a whole can be quite difficult to pull off smoothly.
