Obsidian Portal Campaign of the Month August 2019 – Into the Gathering Dark

Darkspawn stir while the land’s nobles scheme for profit. Meanwhile innocent folk are left largely to their own devices. Even foreign mercenaries seem more honorable in recent days. Perhaps it’s all for the best; who better than mercenaries to venture Into the Gathering Dark – August’s Campaign of the Month! Now hurry! There’s no time to waste if the Blight is to be stopped. We must get to GM Pytheas with all haste.

Describe Your Death For Us

When a character fails miserably at something during a game, who describes the failure? Is it the GM’s duty – NAYpleasure to chronicle the crunch of bones, the explosion of electronics, or the graceless fall from a great height? Are we figuratively rubbing our player’s faces in their own flubs? It’s fun for a storyteller to portray pratfalls, but shouldn’t we share that fun with the player who must suffer the slings and arrows of unkind dice?

Low-Cost Costume Props

Did you see this year’s lineup of cosplayers and clever costumes at GenCon? Impressive stuff, but cosplay like this often requires hours of work, stacks of money, and actual skills to pull off (no wait… to put on? Pull on? Nevermind). But imagine if you could bring just a bit of that kind of fun to your game table without breaking the bank or burning up all of your game-prep time sewing custom outfits for all thirty-five of your NPC’s. You can have props and costumes. You just have to put on your +3 Goggles of Frugality (they’re made out of cardboard) and look at common objects with the cosplayer’s eye.
