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!
Call To Arms: Vanguards
We know that the changes coming to Obsidian Portal are going to throw some people’s campaigns through loops. We’ve done our best to not bust up too many things, but unfortunately it’s a reality of the situation. Those who heavily utilize custom CSS are going to have the canvas of their beautiful paintings shifted around a bit.
Because of this we have set a program into place to help assist our community, an elite task force of OP community pros who will stop at nothing to help everyone get their campaigns back into tip-top shape. We’re calling these folks Vanguards, and we’re looking to start recruiting them now! Are you up for the task of being considered one of the “the big guns” when it comes to squashing post-reforging CSS issues?
ENnies voting is over, Gencon hotels are booked, and we’re looking forward to the con. Be sure to stop by our Kickstarter backer party if you’ve got time Friday night, we’d love to meet as many of you as we can in person. Also, be sure to check out our post full of what we’ve got going on at Gencon too, hopefully you can make it to our panel!
