We know it’s been a while since we’ve had an update blog post so I think it’s about time we come up for some air and talk about the new hotness of Obsidian Portal and things to come. As you all know, on October 28th of this year we unveiled the newly reforged Obsidian Portal and have been working on further improving it ever since. We’ve gathered a lot of feedback from everyone and we’re happy to be such a big part of so many people’s gaming lives!
Haste! w/ guest host Shane Tyree. The Writhing Dark, Dungeon White Space, D&D Rules Elegance, and more!| Episode 97 |
Tonight we’re joined by Shane Tyree to talk to him about his Kickstarter, The Writhing Dark. Jump in and join us as we discuss Cthulhu, Dungeon White Space, and “that thing Mike Mearls said this week”. We have no formal announcements this week, so on with the show!
We’re back, sorry for podfading! We’ve got a regular recording schedule now so rest assured you’ll be hearing from us on the weekly again. There’s still some time to caption the d20Monkey comic too, so get to it before it’s too late! Now, on with the show!
Update: We’ve gotten quite a few responses, so I’m closing this down for now. After we’ve interviewed some candidates, if we are still looking for someone, I’ll re-open this.
We’ve grown to a size now where every day we get a lot of questions about some of the basics of the site, plus people having trouble logging in or figuring out how to reset their password. We want to provide the best possible customer service experience that we can, but we all have day jobs and other responsibilities that keep us busy, and we’re slowly getting buried.
We need someone to help us answer support tickets, review user feedback, and just generally help Obsidian Portal users who have questions and issues. Can you help us out?

Call To Arms: Vanguards
We know that the changes coming to Obsidian Portal are going to throw some people’s campaigns through loops. We’ve done our best to not bust up too many things, but unfortunately it’s a reality of the situation. Those who heavily utilize custom CSS are going to have the canvas of their beautiful paintings shifted around a bit.
Because of this we have set a program into place to help assist our community, an elite task force of OP community pros who will stop at nothing to help everyone get their campaigns back into tip-top shape. We’re calling these folks Vanguards, and we’re looking to start recruiting them now! Are you up for the task of being considered one of the “the big guns” when it comes to squashing post-reforging CSS issues?
The Vanguard program is coming, full blog post explaining the details soon. There’s a Halloween caption contest that you should all be rushing to get funny on, and finally – the Reforging launch will be this Monday, October 28th!
