Hello, fellow friends and gamers.

While I am definitely new to the magic that is Obsidian Portal, I have been sporadically playing RPG's for the past thirteen years. The majority of the aforementioned has been focused on Dungeons and Dragons 3.5.

That being said, I figured this as good a time as any to plug my ongoing campaign, "The Road to Devastation". Unfortunately, I am unfamiliar with how to properly go about doing so. So there you go. Join at your own risk! Oooooohhhhh...

:)

    Not to hijack Defiled Cross's thread, but is there a setting for a signature line or have you been manually adding it on all of your posts killervp?

    Hey Rykros

    Always willing to say HI to a GM of Oerth. I had a large section based under Greyhawk in my SHIMRING campaign.
    I like your comments about awarding roleplaying subtly in-game. Always a good thing.
    I see you have had quite a few sessions already. You may want to add some colour (i.e. pictures, etc) to the campaign as a whole and elaborate a wee bit more on the story but I think you are doing the right thing by keeping your session notes short. Too many people write too much on these things (myself included) but, as long as your players are happy, that is the main thing.
    All in all a good wee platform to build on.

    Thanks for the compliments, twiggyleaf. My entire campaign page is actually still under construction. In fact, call it drastic renovations at the guiding hand of Basileus. There are many plans to change the page including an intro video! That's going to be fun!

    I used to play the old rewards-after-a-fight style. But since my campaign is so fast, I like to just keep the game rolling and award people in various ad hoc ways. I have "chapters" in my story so to speak. At the end of each chapter, they gain a level. Good roleplaying has been rewarded in discreetly decreased DCs on checks, decreased cost of goods, etc. Now, my players keep track of their experience point totals not as an indicator to the next time they level, but as an indicator of story line progression. It's been very successful so far, and I highly recommend it.

    All those rewards are good - as long as the players know they are rewards. I once ran a game where 50% of the awards were given to humour at the table. These days I am going back more to the old ways (i.e. XP for combat sessions) but do give different awards for other stuff.
