Outro: “Prelude: Signal Return” ~ Tiger Army
It’s been officially confirmed that Dave Chalker will be joining us for our wiki panel at GenCon this year. Also I (Jerry) will be attending Origins on the 23 & 24th this year so if you’re going be sure to find me and we’ll talk wiki’s and you might even walk away with some nice Obsidian Portal schwag!
Obsidian Portal Mobile Site
No, we’re not building an smartphone app, but we are launching our mobile friendly version of the site! Micah talks about building the mobile site and what you can expect, should be launched right around the time you hear this podcast. The mobile site is for all OP users, Ascendant and non!
RPG Chatrooms & Twitter Discussion
Twitter, Facebook, Forums, Blogs. If you don’t have enough ways to chat with people about RPG’s, D&D and other tabletop geekery as is – we’re going to give you some more! We discuss the new “4eDnD” irc chat channel run by Gamefiend of the At-Will blog, as well as the #RPGchat hashtag on twitter.
Lost City Release
Logan Bonner has just released the Lost City adventure via Kobold Quarterly’s open design model. Micah and I discuss the open design patronage model briefly, only after Micah explains that the first time he met Logan they had to sleep in the same bed together! The Lost City adventure is a paragon tier sandbox adventure for 4th edition Dungeons & Dragons that runs about $10, definitely check it out if you get a chance!
@RenaissanceDork asks: “When world-building, do you build first and fit the characters in, or build a world around the characters as you go?”
