New Content Director, New Contest! Seeking High-Res Backgrounds, User Feedback, Long Walks on Beach.
A new year brings a lot of room for fresh ideas, new goals, added features and of course growing the ever-expanding library of awesome content that gets poured into Obsidian Portal on a daily basis. Rolling the calendar over another year also means new opportunities and more specifically in this case, a new Content Director! My name is Jerry LeNeave and I just happen to be that new guy, I hope you’ll bear with me as I shimmy myself into this fine suit of armor Dan has left behind.
We wanted to open 2011 with a bang, so Ryan and I worked hard over the holiday break to get these two features ready to go. They’re both in need of a little polish, but that’s never stopped us from launching something before.
Congrats, Duskreign! To celebrate your victory, we’ll be mailing you a GOLDEN TROPHY CHALICE full of dice, glory, and praise! Huzzah!
We’re a little behind in our fundraising efforts for Childs Play, so we’re going to go all-in. For the last day of 2010, we are offering free Ascendant time on Obsidian Portal for your charitable donations. All you have to do is open your wallet and help provide toys and games for sick kids stuck in hospitals around the world.
Update: It’s been a great day, and we’ve met our goal and then some. Thanks for all your help and generosity. If you’re still interested in an Ascendant subscription, check out our subscriptions page.
Dan, our beloved Content Director for the past year, is moving on and we need someone to step in and carry the torch. If you have a knack for writing and a passion for RPGs, you’re a great fit.

Child’s Play, the annual charity brain-spawn of 2 of our beloved geeks Mike ‘Gabe’ Krahulik and Jerry ‘Tycho’ Holkins, has raised over a million dollars this year for bored sick children across the globe. Last year, we participated by creating the +1 Obsidian Portal Chest of Wonders, and it was GLORIOUS. It was also a huge trunk literally heaving with swag that I had to carry up a flight of stairs.
