Obsidian Portal Campaign of the Month May 2016 – Mysteria

Shhh Shh Sh! Can you hear it? It’s very feint when you’re first listening for it – but it is ever present, lingering in the air – or perhaps the heart. Yes… that; now you hear it. Indeed, the music is stirring – as well it should be – for that is the sound of knowledge and adventure. They call it the Song of Midgard, but I like to think of it as the song of Mysteria – May’s Campaign of the Month! So settle in as we spend a little quality time with twiggyleaf, the GameMaster of this gem.

Site and Tech Updates (May 2016)

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 meet with John Hudak via Skype. For any who may not be aware, John is the CTO for Kaleidoscope Global, and oversees Obsidian Portal, as well as nearly 350 other websites. My goal was straightforward, 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.

Thursday Feature – Tracking Mass Combat: CCG Style

Author: Kallak

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.
