Portal Tip: Getting Your Players To Use The Tools

Dungeon Masters on Obsidian Portal are often faced with the problem of how to motivate their players to use the online tools available. Today I’d like to share some ideas and approaches that will hopefully help in that regard.

Add in factors like day jobs, lack of time between games, and other real world concerns and it can be hard to get them to take the time.
