    Fantastic interview and congratulations to Bortas and Crew for winning CotM July 2018!  It was great to get the stories of the other players as to how they had come into the world of Table Top roleplaying, and the insights of Bortas throughout were inspiritational, as were the pictures.  A well deserved win for a campaign overlooked for far too long.  

    I would like to add that the live graphics on this site have grown with age and are now some of the most exciting I have seen on almost any OP site.  The spinning circlet around the enlarging picture disc on the player characters is amazing.  Check it out!

    The regular prize sponsorship from Modiphius Entertainment is a huge accomplishment and takes Obsidian Portal another rung up the ladder.  Well done Kallak and many thanks to Modiphius!

    Congratulations Bortas!  Hard to believe Morwindl hasn't won COTM until now...so many good campaigns, so little time I guess.

    What a site and what a campaign.  Love the use of minis and dioramas.  My favorite character is Sparklegem...how can one not love a forest gnome warlock?

    Hey gang,

    In case you missed it, it's August, which means it's time for the next Campaign of the month! So, help me congratulate our newest winner, Ancellus and the crew of The Praise of Old Men! Stop by the blog and check out the interview for all the details. As always, thanks to our friends at Modiphius Entertainment for their continued support of the CotM program.

    Nomination takes place here on the forums in the nominations thread. The voting is conducted by the CotM Selection Committee on private campaign devoted for it. The CotY voting is handled via public survey (generally surveymonkey) and links to it are added to the blog when the time comes.

    All the best,
    - Kallak

    Congratulations to pencilneckgeek and team for winning CotM from one historic red box devotee to another.  I have had my eye on this site for a few months and am glad it finally "pulled" the award.

    I stand on the rift, on the bridge over two continents, surveying the exciting land below!

    To be fair, I live in a pretty small town. However, our Campaign has been ongoing now for five years. After receiving COTM this past June, my local paper actually featured our Campaign and Obsidian Portal in the local paper!

    God how time runs away from you if you let it...

    So, obviously this CotM announcement and posting is way late. That's entirely my fault, and I'll be giving some details as to what's been going on in update 27 (which I'll be getting up promptly). That said, I don't want that to diminish the announcement in any way, so please help me congratulate this month's winning campaign.

    Our CotM for October 2018 goes to sirlarkins and the players of A Matter of France! The interview is now posted to the blog, so stop on by and read more about this thoroughly enjoyable campaign.

    All the best,
