The campaign maps have been needing a bit of an overhaul for a while, and I finally got a chance to make a few of the changes I’ve been wanting to do. Over the weekend, I whipped up a couple great additions to the maps, and I think you’ll like them.
General Purpose Markers
Up to now, the only markers you could add to your wiki were for wiki pages. The idea was that you would make a location in your wiki, then link to it from your map. However, as many of you have told us, that’s a little too restrictive. So, we’ve backed off that restriction and made the markers much more general purpose. You can put whatever wiki text you want in there and it will wiki-link to other pages, characters, items, you-name-it. Imagine each marker as a mini wiki page and you get the idea.
We’re going to be running a few panels this year at GenCon. We’ll be adding more information here as we get it, so please check back often. Make sure to get your tickets so you can come join us!
If you check out Obsidian Portal on your mobile device, you may get a bit of a shock. Instead of just being the regular site scrunched up onto the screen, you’ll see that it now fits nicely with no zooming and scrolling. We’ve heard your calls for a better mobile version and now we’re getting there.
Welcome to Haste!
Obsidian Portal is experimenting with running a podcast, and this is our first episode. We call it Haste because we know you are all busy people and don’t have time to listen to a group of podcasters drone on and on. The goal of the show is to get you some of the latest news in the RPG industry and get you on your way.
Outro: Black Electric– AFI
My day job has me travelling to San Francisco from 4/9 to 4/16. I looked on the big map, and there are plenty of campaigns listed in that area. I’ll have some free time in the evenings, and I’m wondering if there are any gamers in the area who would be willing to entertain a guest.
I’m willing to put myself to work, and I’d be happy to run a 1-shot. I love Dark Heresy, and I’ve got a 1-shot that I’m planning to run at GenCon. Otherwise, I’m happy to run a guest PC, an NPC, or even just sit and observe.
If you’re a gaming group in the San Francisco area and interested in having a guest, shoot me an email. I’d love to meetup and do some gaming!
