Everybody loves a chance at free stuff!


Weekly Status Update – Sept. 11

Checking in for another week of updates to keep everyone here in the loop of everything that has been going on over the course of the week.  We have a couple of items that we need to touch on so we are going to get right to it.


Contest and Tech Updates

Hey there everybody, we have some more news for you today that I wanted to roll out.  We have our winners for the T-Shirt Contest and some more news on the tech details.  I also wanted to address some of our efforts in getting issues sorted out.  With that said, we will get right to the details!


T-Shirt Contest Voting!

It’s That Time!

The final submissions are in and its time for everyone to choose their favorite design!  The deadline for voting is August 31, 2015.


Design the Next Obsidian Portal T-Shirt!

Time For A New Set of Armor

For a long time, we’ve always gotten great feedback on our shirts. We’re really happy that our community members have been a huge fan of the “My Other Shirt is Chainmail” design for quite some time now.

It’s time for something new though, but this time we’re going to let you, our community, design them! These are going to be the shirts we send to fans, give away as prizes, wear at conventions, and for the general purpose of showing our Obsidian Portal spirit.


Vote For 2014’s Campaign of the Year!

Another Great Year of Gaming!

It’s that time again! Start casting your votes for who should win the title of Campaign of the Year for 2014. Our winner will not only receive the prestige of the title itself, but a gilded trophy filled with dice!


Summer of Flames D&D Contest

It Burns!

It’s August and Gencon is just around the corner, the temperatures are rising and so is everyone’s anticipation for the next edition of D&D. We’ve been covering a lot of news regarding 5e on the Haste Podcast and Jerry has been talking about it a lot on his blog.

Obviously, we’re pretty excited ourselves and so we’d like to give everyone a chance at winning some awesome 5e schwag, whether you’re going to gencon or not this year! What better goodies to give away than some 5e D&D Starter Sets, and maybe even a Player’s Handbook! The contest is simple, but you’ve only got until the end of Gencon to enter, here’s how:

In one line: Tell us the best way to beat the heat! Whether you’re avoiding fireballs, surviving a red dragon’s breath, or simply not shriveling up under the Dark Sun.

Some examples:

“I cast any remaining ice spells inside my house before I go to sleep and re-memorize everything, just so I have some A/C while I sleep”

“Huddle behind my my shield and hope all this ‘dwarven craftsmanship’ pays off when the dragon starts spewing fire”

“Stow my canteen of water in the last place anyone would look – inside the severed orc head that dangles from my belt.”


Also available in a Ladies fitted T-shirt sizes.

Contest Specifics

How to enter:

  • In one sentence or less, and in a D&D (or at least “fantasy”) themed response, tell us how you or your character is beating the heat this summer. Get creative!
  • Submit it as a comment below, no more than 3 entries per person, one entry per comment

On August 17th, at midnight, the contest will close. Afterward, 4 winners will be randomly chosen to win a D&D 5e Starter Set, and one additional hand-picked winner of our choice will receive a d20Monkey “Whining is Coming” T-shirt along with a D&D 5e Player’s Handbook, and a Starter Set as well.
