New to the OP just thought I would say hello. I have been playing all sorts of RPG's since the late 80's including, Advanced Dungeons and Dragons 2nd Edition, Dungeons and Dragons 3.5, Vampire, Werewolf, Gamma world etc. My friends and I have started a Dark Sun campaign and are loving the site. We finally got one of our long time friends to play D+D!!
If anyone wants to check it out, http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaigns/dark-sun-sam
Anyway thanks for taking the time to have a look.

    Hi there Blackmoons

    and welcome to Obsidian Portal. You have made a good start to the site. The ICON on the Home Page is beautifully BIG and BOLD and I think you should definitely use it for your banner. I like the inclusion of the cartoon strip on the first page too.
    And congratulations for getting that old time friend to play!

    Welcome to the site.

    Look around, favorite a few sites you like, and ask plenty of questions.

    Also, your site looks pretty good.

    Welcome!
    I agree, that sunburst would be an excellent banner. I'm also digging the artwork you've selected in the Bestiary. Are you customizing the edges like that?

    Hi, all! Brand new to Obsidian Portal-- an absolute old-timer in gaming; have done tabletop gaming since 1978 or thereabouts and do some computer games and LARP. Right now I'm planning out a Legend of the Five Rings 4th ed. campaign as I'm finishing up a 2-year Game of Thrones campaign (should be done by the end of the year). Too bad I didn't know about Obsidian Portal a couple of years ago-- it would have been great to use this site for what is a complex political game. I'm enjoying cruising people's campaigns to see how they are using the site, and beginning to get some bare bones on my new campaign.

    I do have a question-- I've seen mention in a few places of "fancy" "interactive" character sheets programmed for specific systems. Where are those? How can I get access.

    Thanks-- looking forward to getting to know you all.

    Leduck.

    Greetings, OP community! I'm not exactly a new member, but I did recently Ascend, and will be sending out invitations to my new campaign at the end of the week, so I figured I should introduce myself.

    I've been a gamer since the mid-80s, and my first was the Red Box. Since then, I've run or played campaigns in all versions of D&D up through 3.5 edition, various Storyteller games, GURPS, and a smattering of small-press things. I currently reside in the northeast L.A. area, and may be open to recruiting gamers from that area if I don't get enough participation from my initial invites to friends.

    I have two campaigns on this site, the first of which (Tangents Of Terror) never got off the ground. I'm hoping that my currently-planned one, Friends Of Man, will have better luck. Lemme know what you think of my initial efforts, and at the end of the week, I will go browsing and favorite some of the campaigns I've enjoyed reading over the last couple of years.

    Interesting concept

    Well, good news for me. I've finally wrangled up some player for my campaign, "Friends Of Man.". They should be joining Obsidian Portal and my campaign page soon, and I can finally get it under way.

    I'm really excited about it, and I hope we can keep it going.
