    Pretty solid start. I like the consistency of the artwork across the board. The "Wiki Main":https://valcarnum-drums-of-war.obsidianportal.com/wikis/main-page page could use some attention, as the "list of links" format is a bit of a letdown in comparison to the rest of the campaign. It needs section header graphics, or graphic buttons instead of links...something, hell anything really. A few other things worth mentioning/taking a look at:

    [1] The music selections that play on the "Front Page":https://valcarnum-drums-of-war.obsidianportal.com/ and the "Wiki Main":https://valcarnum-drums-of-war.obsidianportal.com/wikis/main-page page are fantastic - and set an awesome tone. BUT, having the music cut off when moving about the site is a little annoying. Particularly on the "Wiki Main":https://valcarnum-drums-of-war.obsidianportal.com/wikis/main-page page, where you're only there for a few seconds to get to other content.

    [2] There are numerous instances in the wiki where there is opportunity for cross linking that isn't being taken advantage of. As an example, the page for "Wolves' Haven":https://valcarnum-drums-of-war.obsidianportal.com/wiki_pages/wolves-haven makes mention of both "The Covenant":https://valcarnum-drums-of-war.obsidianportal.com/wikis/the-covenant and "The Grey City":https://valcarnum-drums-of-war.obsidianportal.com/wikis/the-grey-city, but no cross linking is present for ease of browsing. Readers are forced to go back to the Main Wiki page and scan for the appropriate page that was referenced. It would certainly take some time to go back and fix this on all the pages, but WELL worth it IMO.

    [3] The unused "Maps":https://valcarnum-drums-of-war.obsidianportal.com/maps tab should be removed if you aren't intending on using it. Having that blank tab and then seeing a "World Map":https://valcarnum-drums-of-war.obsidianportal.com/wikis/world-map wiki page is a bit redundant. I'm guessing this is because the resolution/dimensions available by uploading the map to the tab aren't to your liking?

    Anyway, food for thought. Keep up the good work.
    All the best,

    Looks good to me so far. I love the premise as set out in the FRONT PAGE and love the Main Pic and general feel of the campaign. I like your design of the Characters. I look forward to a bit more illustration in the main WIKI. All in all, worth a punt at FAVORITING, I feel. Good luck with the campaign!

    It looks amazing. I wanted to start a game up myself but am still trying to get the hang of the site. I truly love the detail and the thought and work placed into the site. Good luck with the Campaign and let me know if you have room for one more. Looking for a campaign to play myself.
