CotY 2019 Results!

It’s been a long time coming, but at last we have a bit of closure for the tabletop gaming world. Yes friends, the results for our 2019 Campaign of the Year vote are in! Dark forces out in the universe tried really hard to keep us from our proverbial “appointed rounds”, but they could not stop our diligent Selection Committee, or your vote. The best that they could achieve, was to slow us down but a little (maybe a tad more than “a little”, but hey, we’re being optimistic here!).

So let’s not permit another moment to slip by! Onward, to the results!

Vote for Campaign of the Year – 2019!

Make Your Voice Heard

It’s the beginning of a new year, so you know what that means! That’s right, it’s time to take a long, nostalgic look back at all of the featured campaigns that came before, and pick our collective favorite! “But wait” I hear you say, “Isn’t this 2021? Why are we looking at the campaigns for 2019 when we should be looking at those for 2020?”.

While we could make a joke (or two, or a thousand) about how rough of a year 2020 was, the truth is that we need to set right a certain wrong before we can get to 2020’s featured campaigns. You might not have noticed (and frankly, who could blame you), but we never got to crown our 2019 Campaign of the Year – and that’s just not right! This being the case, the Selection Committee has decided that the best way to give 2019’s contenders their due recognition is to give them the distinct CotY vote they should have received (instead of a ‘double header’ style vote like we did the last time we got behind). Having said all of that, let’s take a moment to look back at 2019’s featured campaigns!

Update Post – January 19, 2021

Hello Obsidian Portal!

I ended up skipping a post in the roughly 3-months (ish) cycle for updates, so I hope you are ready for some news on what has been going on behind the scenes here on OP! I’ve changed the format for these posts slightly, in an effort to make them a more friendly read (the last format came off slightly patch notes-y. This has made the post a tad longer, but offers up some more insights and readability.

And now, on to the updates!

Obsidian Portal Campaign of the Month January 2021 – Gaxim Plague

It began with the coastal cities, but it wasn’t long before it spread – moving inland at a rate that the scholars said was ‘prodigious’. They should have said terrifying. The disease is so virulent and rapidly spread that the clerics cannot keep up with the demand for cleansing. Rumors swirl that many within the faith have succumbed themselves… I shudder at the very possibility of that being true. A solution must be found, Amn must endure this Gaxim Plague – January’s Campaign of the Month! Now, muster your courage, say a prayer and come with me, as we enter the lands of the Forgotten Realms with the GM of this month’s featured campaign, Frak_Lou_Elmo!

Obsidian Portal Campaign of the Month November 2020 – Hazard Pay

Long ago, there was an age of enlightenment and civility. Today, the universe lies in ruins, split into broken sectors and ruled with iron fists by the conquering Overlords. They have established control over every aspect of life in their sectors. Only the farthest reaches of the galaxy have escaped their domination. Those who dare to face the lost and unknown do so in the hopes of vast rewards, known to some as Hazard Pay – November’s Campaign of the Month! Strap in for danger and exploration as we sift through the remnants of the lost past with Dropbeartots, GM of this far out campaign!

Award Winning!
