Campaign of the Month For JULY - SHADOWS OVER NEW YORK

edited April 2013 in Campaign Submissions
Now that June has come and COTM has been awarded to Kettle's Rise of the Dead, I would like to submit Keryth987's wonderful "Shadows Over New York":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaigns/shadows-over-new-york campaign for June's Campaign Of The Month.

This campaign has everything - Graphics, videos, logs, etc.

But most importantly, it contains a TON of information, wonderful characters, and an interesting storyline.

The site itself is fairly easy to follow, with a clear, concise, unified, and attractive design. The Characters include a ton of details provided by the campaigns players (I assume). The NPC's are interesting and well fleshed out. The locations are many and all include interesting facts and tidbits. The synopsis of each 'Episode' are full of little things it makes one feel almost like they are in the game themselves.

What I think really makes this campaign stand out however, is that it is not your standard Dresden Files Campaign. The standard Dresden Files Universe has wonderfully been meshed with Highlander, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Percy Jackson, and others, into a wonderful tapestry with something for everyone.

Also, as of today, it has reached 75 Favorites, which demonstrates that many people here share my enthusiasm for this wonderful campaign.

So, I happily submit "Shadows Over New York":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaigns/shadows-over-new-york for June's Campaign of the Month

    "Shadows Over New York":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaigns/shadows-over-new-york is an excellent campaign worthy of COTM. If you haven't looked through it, I highly recommend you do. Keryth987 has done an amazing job with this campaign.

    I want to thank everyone for their support.

    Also, the latest updates are now up. All characters, except one, have posted their views on Episode 2 and Episode 3 is now in full swing.

    Well, figured I'd use this for the update to those following Shadows, but a large information dump occurred during the last session, as the group found perhaps the most cowardly summoner of demons ever, and acquired the Journal of The Necromancer they are confronting. The contents of the Journal have been posted to the site and are linked within the summary of the last session

    This weeks session involved ALOT of role playing, as the group decided what their next move would be, as well as some intense discussions regarding the information obtained in the previous session

    At the suggestion of KillerVP, all Episode Session Synopsis have been moved to the Adventure Log format, so, now everyone can comment on the individual sessions.

    So, comment away everyone!

    I remember when DFDallas did that exact same move (from wiki page back to adventure log)... that was painful. :)

    And now I give you...MAPS!

    Each borough (Manhattan, Queens, Bronx, Brooklyn, and Staten Island) now has a map detailing the borough and showing exactly where each location in that borough is.

    All Map links have been corrected, and all links to the Episode Session Synopsis are corrected and functioning.

    We even had one of you comment on multiple sessions already, which my players found pretty awesome.
