Last chance to caption the D20Monkey comic is today! We’ve also hired a background image designer so you’ll be seeing some new campaign backgrounds on OP in the near future!
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.
Today we’re joined by GM Witchcraft to talk to him about his game: Ladies In Hades & The Dyval Wears Prada, a truly unique RIFTS campaign. Sit down and tune in to a group who sound like they are having absolutely too much fun!
During a prior discussion on haste regarding racial slurs, we forgot about humans! Thanks for the reminder Reddit! Congratulations to GM Ashtmw on being one of our 3 winners for our Birthday contest with his holiday Year’s Dawning. It’s simple, and chock full of adventure hooks. He’s won a year of Ascendant membership, some OP schwag, and $25 to spend at DriveThruRPG! Tune in next week to hear about our second winner!
Don’t forget that the d20 Monkey contest is going on and that you’ve still got a little bit of time left to submit to our April’s fool contest! Also, be sure to check out part 2 of our interview with Rob Schwalb.
Also – we’re hiring a Background Image Designer!

Help Beautify Obsidian Portal
One of my favorite parts of the Reforge redesign is the ability to choose a nice high-resolution background image for your campaign. You can change the tone of your game from high fantasy to space opera to gritty urban streets just by selecting an image.
However, we need more images! Our current background image library is too small and we need help expanding it to add more images and give people a variety to choose from. To that end, we need someone with an eye for imagery and color and the ability to put together an image / color scheme combo that will make peoples’ campaigns look awesome.
