OP Needs You!
Convention season is right around the corner, and we’re excited to get out to all the cons and spread the word about Obsidian Portal. Luckily we have a steadfast group of folks we like to call Emissaries who help us spread the word when they go to cons that we don’t get to. The problem is, we need more of them!
Just in case you didn’t know, the Emissary program has been going strong since 2010, bringing light to the savages and showing them the ways of proper campaign management with Obsidian Portal!
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.
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.
The State of the Reforge
Greetings Portallers! It’s time for a big update regarding the Reforged stretch goals and what we’ve been doing behind the curtains for so long. We’ve been hard at work behind the scenes crafting our stretch goals and making iterations on the site.
Below you’ll find a list of the current development items we’re working on. We’re excited to be bringing these new bells and whistles to the site and we can’t wait to see how everyone will put them to use.
We’re Gettin’ Old!
That’s right, we’ve been around for 8 solid years creating tools to make people’s campaigns better, more fun, and more efficient! In the spirit of our birthday this year we’d like to give away some presents to you guys in the form of a small contest.
All you have to do is create/celebrate any kind of holiday in your game, and then tell us about it!
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!
