An Overdue Apology
Dear Obsidian Portal Community,
I know that over the past few months a good number of you have really been wondering what is going on behind the curtains over here. There’s been a lot of silence, and for that I sincerely apologize. There are very few times when I feel as if words completely elude me, anyone who listens to Haste knows this already, yet they have for some time now. That being said, also know that I’m intimately aware that silence can do more harm than even the worst of words.
Better Late Than Never!
We know the post is a little bit overdue but we’re getting things back on track here and what better way than to get a big announcement out of the way. There were a ton of great campaigns in 2014 and running this every year it seems to get harder and harder to pick just one campaign to root for!
Today we’re joined by Sean Patrick Fannon to talk to him about his epic fantasy world of Shaintar. Shaintar is a campaign setting and standalone game that uses the Savage Worlds ruleset.
We’ve been meaning to pick Sean’s brain for quite some time now and since we’re so long overdue we’ve got a bigger than normal review split up into two parts. Herein is the first part. Sit back and enjoy, and be sure to go and check out Shaintar when you’re done reading!
Fresh Backgrounds For You!
A while back you may recall that we were looking to hire a background designer, and we are happy to announce that that role has been filled! Today we are rolling some out as we speak! You should see more backgrounds as time goes on on a pretty regular basis, each time I’ll give you guys an update here on the blog talking about each one a little bit. Remember that each background also comes with a complimentary color scheme for you campaign so that you can just plug it in and go get back to the important stuff!
Sorting Things Out
Greetings everyone! We’re here with a quick feature update. We’re glad that everyone is enjoying the new and improved use of tagging within Obsidian Portal and we’ve been wanting to do more with it. So, beyond just tags, we’ve added a few new filtering options.
Greetings portallers, it’s that time of year again! The time when we come together to vote on our most prestigious award, Campaign of the Year! Below is a complete list of all the games nominated throughout the year for your judging pleasure. Just hit the voting link when you’re ready and be sure to stick around after you submit your ballot – you’ll be rewarded with some DriveThruRPG coupons for your efforts!
So, which one of these was the very best of 2011? You tell us, and remember no hitting below the belt, one vote only once per person. Good luck to all those in the running, and may the best campaign win!
