    The conclusion to the hero's foray into eastern supernatural society and the Jade Court concludes as our "postgame is up":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/dfd/wikis/episodes and a new character joins the regular "cast":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/dfd/wikis/erica .... now i gotta see about what I did with my source file for the opening credits movie. :)

    Hey Wolfhound, I added a link to your CSS tutorials to Chainsaw's Tips page (in the spillover section). Thanks for contributing, it really helps the community.

    Cheers,

    Wolfhound, I still absolutely love your campaign. I love how each player gives descriptions of how they feel about the team- do each of your pcs do that, or do you do it for them?
    Keep up the awesomeness!!

    @Arsheesh THANK YOU! I totally dropped the ball there, thank you for doing that.

    @killervp - My players actually do those. Sometimes I help them edit the CSS but that's it. Those are their opinions and thoughts.

    I recently had something of a writing flurry and in the past 2 days have thrown up 4 of Conor's webisodes. 1 more to go before our next big story arc.

    I like the "Hello Kitty Latte" in the last adventure log! I bet the team deserved one of them after their mission.
    (I couldn't find a place to comment on the adventure log itself)

    You're right! What a horrible oversight. I have added the ability to add comments (now to make them pretty).

    One of my players came up with the idea (and challenge for the rest of us) to come up with a "sound track" for the main characters of the campaign.

    Two are up, at least two more should be up in a day or two.
    "Jaime":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/dfd/wikis/jaime-webisode-8
    "Conor":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/dfd/wikis/conor-soundtrack

    I've also discovered that my "hack" that re-enabled comments for my campaign ... now allows me to put a comments feature on just about any page. I'm gonna have to explore this idea. :)

    Out of curiosity, how do you put comments on just about any page?

    Remember this is a hack. It's clunky, but it's dirt simple and it works.

    Functional Steps:
    1) Create a generic adventure log post. Format it however you like (I have one for each character, one for the season 1 of our campaign). Less text is better so that more comments are visible underneath.
    2) At the bottom of each wiki page where you want to "enable comments" - just link to that "containing" adventure log post.

    Beautification/Obfuscation Steps:
    1) Replace the link to the adventure log post with a graphic (in my case one that says "Leave a Comment")
    2) Attach your graphic link to your wiki formatting by sticking it in whatever DIVs you're going with.

    "example 1":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/dfd/wikis/adventure-postgame-12

    3) Use DIV formatting to make your "container" adventure log post link back to your site (i.e. reintegrate it) - I stuck these at the bottom after my intro text box

    Had to share the fact that this last weekend I ate at a Texas BBQ place in Chinatown (D.C.) with a sign written in Chinese (D.C.), playing beach rock music, during the Japanese Cherry blossom festival. The mesh of all the different things just reminded me of Dresden Files Dallas for some reason.

    Also I am having my players do soundtracks/theme songs for their characters using Grooveshark. Still playing the code on that one though.

    and once again wolfhound teaches me something new. The comments trick looks like it will work just fine and now KillerVP's wish has come true.

    Had to brag on two of my players for just a bit.

    They worked together and did a collaborative postgame. Each is from their own character's point of view. So the same scene, but they feel totally different. Kinda cool.

    "Elena's POV":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/dfd/wikis/elena-webisode-11
    "Matthew's POV":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/dfd/wikis/matthew-webisode-11

    For those that don't regularly follow, Elena is the supernatural vigilante - a Tejana with a supernatural patron of the Tigua/Pueblo indians of west Texas. Matthew is a broke street-preacher with strange faith magics and a relative "newbie" to the supernatural world of the Dresdenverse.

    ps - BBQ for lunch was awesome

    For last night's game, there was much _anticipation_ ...

    So I have added the postgame, as is _tradition_ ...

    I also added some _annotation_ ...

    Following the events of "Outlaw":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/dfd/wikis/adventure-postgame-13 last week (mid season finale) the City of Dallas will be going through a slight shakeup. As the players post their "webisode postgames":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/dfd/wikis/episodes and whatnot, stay tuned for changes to the "City Wiki":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/dfd/wikis/main-page itself as the ripples start to take hold in our little "pond."

    It's been a while, but since our Midseason Finale (Outlaw) we've had every single player turn in a postgame. Interestingly, every single one of them takes place in the minutes shortly after the events of the game itself.

    "Dresden Files Dallas: Midseason Finale - Episode #13 - Outlaw":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/dfd/wikis/episodes

    I even wrote a postgame from the point of view of one of our more prominent NPCs just for the fun of it.

    Each is written by a different person (well except for Conor and the NPC) so they're at times wildly different in tone and style. Quite an interesting dynamic I think.

    We had one last little leftover thing to do after the conclusion of outlaw... that was finished up last night. Next session I get to play (woohoo! GM Rahal once again steps up to bat.

    So ... busy ... at ... work ...

    BUT updates added. Thanks to my player's and CO-GM's Rahal and Stagelucas for GMing while I've been out of it working on software deadlines.

    It may seem like we've fallen off the planet, but no! We're still around. Just completed phase one of a pretty massive overhaul to incorporate the new stylesheet feature OP implemented.

    Looks similar, but slightly different. The redo of the wiki itself is still a work in progress, but the Adventure Log is back up to date including some of our most recent shenanigans.

    Hey Wolfhound!

    Dresden lookin' good!
    -I'm not sure the dark red font on black background works so well (right nav bars)- but otherwise very snazzy, and as ever, adventure logs packed with useful pics and info!

    NB: Sorry, I just noticed the way it lights up when you hover over it with the cursor! I take my previous statement back and commend you on a very cool idea!

    Hey Twiggy, thanks for the feedback, I went ahead and experimented with some lighter text that still fit with my overall color palette, got time to take a look? :) Kept the hover/underline.
