Shared Creations

In the spirit of sharing and taking a note from DarkMagus' "Gaming Music":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaigns/gaming-music, I would like to present "Shared Creations":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaigns/shared-creations - A repository for random links, wikis, articles, code for use in OP campaigns, etc. to aid GM's in their gaming.

The idea is to keep it simple and clean using just textile and the OP interface. Currently, there's a lot of D&D (3.5, specifically) content, but I'm not denouncing any system's right for posting. D&D is just what I know ;).

Since OP's community is so vocal and kind, I'm hoping that anyone with links, wikis, articles will come forward and give their two cents for me to post; and that anyone willing to become a player will help with posting. Alternately, if there are any other campaigns out there doing this, I hope we could exchange links and work together to expand our sites.

Thanks for your time and consideration!

    Thanks for sharing this straydog. This is a great idea. Thanks also for posting my Gaming Music resource. You might also want to include links to "The Fantastinomicon":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaigns/the-fantastinomicon by Gaaran as well as "The Gibson Institute":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaigns/the-gibson-institute by JimTriche since they are also resources for players and GMs.

    If I come across anything else you might find useful I will send it your way.

    Best of luck!

    Nice. I figured someone had already had the idea to do this, but I wasn't exactly sure what to search for. So I just said "screw it" and made my own ^.^. It's definitely awesome how such a large community plays off of each other. Brings a tear to the eye and puts some faith back into humanity, yeah? Lol.

    Hey straydog, glad to see someone taking up this mantle since I have been fairly busy and the Fantastinomicon has fallen by the wayside. If you'd be interested in combining resources, I'd be happy to add you to the Fantastinomicon, or some such. Let me know!

    Yeah I'm pretty much down for anything, gaaran. Fortunately, I am quite sedentary and very rarely become "busy" with life.

    Also, whenever one types "repository," am I the only one who constantly wants to type "suppository?" I can't help it. It makes me giggle every time, too. I think my mother's right when she refers to me as a "sick puppy."

    * Added two character classes that I created. The Blind Swordsman is unavailable until I can come back through and edit it (I'z turred right now). I have one more called the Alchemist, but it needs some work and flavor text. I'll have it up soon.

    Yup, I'll just echo Gaaran's remarks, it's nice to see that you've taken the Bull by the Horns on this one.

    Cheers,

    This is a fine collection of material that you've put together straydog, another resource to help GM's run their games is always welcome! Seeing the Cartographer's Guild link actually reminded me that I have to get to work on a mapping project for my own campaign and soon:)

    Well I'm about 3 pages back in the forum and wanted to bump this up to keep it within eyeshot. I haven't added anything new in a week or so and would like to refresh a call-out for helpful links, tips, tricks, etc regarding pretty much everything you could throw at me.

    What I'm looking for:
    * Any links for any helpful articles, generators, artwork and so forth for any system you use.
    * Perspectives on RP, such as the importance of backstories, good rp'ers, bad rp'ers, alignments, or whatever mechanic in your system that nurtures the RP aspect of your game.
    * NPC's you really like and would like to share.
    * Character classes you've created for your systems that you'd like to share.
    * House rules you'd like to offer forward to people to help them streamline their game.

    Now send me some links! I'm bored, dammit :D

    Vstray, one thing I have found is that throwing the link out each time- "Shared Creations":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaigns/shared-creations helps bring traffic.
    This is a really good site, continuing Gaaran's great work on the "Fastinomicon":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaigns/the-fantastinomicon

    Thanks killer. I definitely try to remember to link, just don't always succeed. I guess it is far enough down in this thread for another link.

    Whenever I get a few new things to post I'll likely drop an update here as well to keep the thread alive.

    Any system suggestions for me to search for links to? Sci-fi, steampunk, modern? Something more specific?

    I was hunting for ideas to give my players some suitable transportation today and found Kayo Fraser's lists of model "Horse-Drawn Vehicle Plans":http://www.wildhorsebooks.com/Plans.htm a nice quick list of many different vehicles I can drop into a campaign instead of just a generic "cart".

    That's a neat idea. I'll either add the link, make a wiki with the different types, our do both depending on my time today. Thanks zalambar!

    Excellent job vstraydogstrutv! If you want, feel free to link to anything that I've put together if you see something you like - I wikified a lot of 3.5e stuff due to me feeling stupidly inspired one day.

    "Here":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/planescape-campaign/wikis/laws-of-the-multiverse

    Most interesting may be Status Effects or maybe some Feats/Spells - they're all 3.5e, but it might be helpful to you!

    Thanks, Rase! I'll look through it and add accordingly! I play 3.5 myself, so I'm sure I'll enjoy the ever-loving shit out of it =^.^=.

    Also, thanks for the favorite!

    Thanks KVP. More of a rant than anything ^.^

    I'd really FRAKKING ADORE having more wiki pages in the GM's corner, so if anyone has thoughts on RP in general, gripes about common player faux pas, players griping about GM faux pas (I'll list these as player perspectives or PP), etc. I would be ecstatic to list them! Feeeeeeeeeed us your knowledgez! It sustaaaiinzz usss!

    Just a curiousity:

    Do people look at and rate items 'round here? I realized that I never hear us talking about them or anything. It's always campaigns as a whole. I suppose it could be understood in the fact that many different systems have many different items, but I think really good ones could be used in any campaign with a little tweaking (well, maybe not future-period to past, but the other way around could work).
    Thoughts?

    In the past, I have - I guess I stopped when I heard tell that they may be scrapping the Items tab, because it's pretty bare-bones. I've actually created my own item templates for my own use, and I think I'm going to do similar things for my other campaigns.

    There are some awesome items out there, I just haven't bothered looking as I'm curious about what's going to happen to the item tabs, and hopefully soon.

    Ah yeah, I forgot about that. Maybe I should make some back-up wiki pages of those...

    Also, Rase, you have a lot of stuff in your Laws of the Multiverse that I want to steal, but I have to figure out a way to link them just right so they stay easy to navigate. Just wanted to let you know I haven't forgot about you lol.
