    As someone who started playing Gamma World the week it was released (the first edition) I must applaud this worthy and spirited work! Kudos Fivegears! May your weapons be of duralloy and the Ancients guide you!

    I get a warm fuzzy when a campaign I already favorited gets the CotM nod.

    You guys are awesome. You know that. And Gamma World simply called to me, in regards to my campaign-style. I couldn't help myself.

    The main problem I have is that I tend to go all tangental when it comes to campaigns. I have one idea then another. Is there an OP page for "campaign ideas"? If not, should we throw one together, a place where we can collectively throw our ideas that we haven't gotten a chance to use ourselves, or perhaps ones we've used and want others to potentially make use of?

    This particular post about tangental content is a bit of a tangent in and of itself, and it's getting particularly meta. I suppose, without beating around the bush is, I used to run a site called druidwrestling.com - I suppose calling it a blog would be the best description. I don't really have any dedicated online work besides my stuff here on OP.

    TL;DR - should I make some kind of gaming blog? Would people (in time) read it, you think?

    Thanks for the plug KVP! I'd be more than willing to dedicate a page to campaign ideas, Five. Feel free to shoot me some and I -- or we -- can figure out a format most befitting the idea.

    I just realised I didn't add my congratulations to this page. I enjoyed the interview, as I enjoy all Game of the Month interviews. I always find inspiration in hearing from the heart of other DMs. Did anyone say those DRAMA CARDS were amazing???

    I believe myself and a few others did, twigs.

    On that subject, my players freaking love those things (except one guy, but he's a jackass). I set up rewards focusing mainly on OP contributions and it's definitely helped on that end, which, in turn, validates the work that I put in on here. Even if they don't read it I at least know they're contributing their own stuff.

    So that's on your head, gears! You made my nerds like my site!

    I set up OP based rewards as well and my guys have suddenly started joining in. It is great incentive to offer something that only the OP contributors get.

    By what criteria are these selected? More specifically, I'd like to recommend one for you and wonder what the process is and who I submit it to. Thanks,

    Hi there Friendlypickle, well here are the "criteria":http://forums.obsidianportal.com/comments.php?DiscussionID=955&page=1#Item_1 suggested by the previous Content Director. However I'm not sure whether or not this is still the criteria being used by the new content director or not. My guess is that it is. Here is another helpful thread that discusses the criteria forum users generally use when deciding whether or not to "Become a Fan":http://forums.obsidianportal.com/comments.php?DiscussionID=2081&page=1#Item_19 of a particular site. I imagine that that Jerry (our current Content Director) probably has a similar set of criteria for selecting the Campaign of the Month. However, if you really like a campaign, it never hurts to submit it for the CoTM.

    Cheers,

    TolsimirWolfblood deserves the COTM for an incredible campaign. It is one of the few I actually look at almost every day. Congrats dude. I look forward to following your campaign for a long time.

    Thank you all! I know i can speak for myself and my players when i say we are greatly honored, and i could never have done it, or wanted to do it for that matter, without the support of all of you amazing OP community members who inspired me to continually do better with all of your own amazing campaigns :)
