Hello Obsidian Portal!

For your consideration, I present my group's campaign Athos : The Return. I think it's a great example of where the mind of the players and DM came together to create a fantastic and immersive world. This campaign has been running for nearly three years and we have nearly 60 adventure logs (61 sessions, 58 logs - session 62 next week!) Our campaign has some custom CSS, but what really makes our campaign shine is the dedication that the players and myself have put into the lore and info on this.

D&D 4e is often looked down upon due to its heavy focus on combat, but I think we've really pushed the boundaries here to make a campaign that's above and beyond textbook 4th edition.

Please let me know what you think, and consider us for the Campaign of the Month!

Currently, OP is having an issue with embedded videos. Our campaign utilizes this, so please judge kindly in regards to our video not being up.

    Great stuff. I love the BLACK WATER!
    Wiki Descriptions are good. Could do with a few more pictures in there, I would suggest. I might say the same for the logs.

    Thanks for the comments so far guys! Do we know why CotM stopped? I'll post this over on the 'review' thread as well to get more comments there.

    CotM stopped because Micah and company basically stopped - CotM, active development, responding to help tickets, communicating with the community, everything. With new ownership (and a new community manager), it may resume but this is just a personal speculation.

    Why did Micah and company stop? I remember not too long ago the kickstarter did great and promised to make big changes. Some nice ones went through but I feel that the general vibe really died down.

    You're asking a "why" question that the community can't answer - we've been asking the same questions. If you really want a better understanding of how it went down, I recommend reading the " Obsidian Portal Launch Feedback":http://forums.obsidianportal.com/comments.php?DiscussionID=3394&page=1 thread. Yes the Kickstarter did great, and there were big promises made. Most people found the Reforge more of a problem than a benefit, however, especially since many of the real beneficial promises were never delivered on even after two years of waiting. This promise of great things for a lot more money than they initially asked for and then never delivered upon (for the ~$86k given) contributed substantially to the general vibe dying.
