New Campaign Backgrounds

Fresh Backgrounds For You!

A while back you may recall that we were looking to hire a background designer, and we are happy to announce that that role has been filled! Today we are rolling some out as we speak! You should see more backgrounds as time goes on on a pretty regular basis, each time I’ll give you guys an update here on the blog talking about each one a little bit. Remember that each background also comes with a complimentary color scheme for you campaign so that you can just plug it in and go get back to the important stuff!

Looking for New Emissaries, Introducing the Emissary Program 2.0

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.

Job Posting – Background Image Designer

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.

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.
