    fyi o get a 'not authorized to view' on the "these three links":https://sithlordoftherings.obsidianportal.com/wikis/main-page .

    is that intended? shouldn't this campaign be public?

    "Sorry, you are not authorized to view that page. (403)" is the message

    The Main Page is viewable, but all of the links thereon are verboten.

    Thats odd. The site is set to public and none of the information put in is GM only.

    Are y'all talking about the "new" links to those three nonexistent pages? You can't see it because you aren't members of the campaign and thus can't create new pages... Only the History page exists (and is visible).

    Hello everyone,

    This week's Thursday Feature is the first of a new series, in which our authors discuss the good, the bad, and the unique of various roleplaying game systems. We start things off with a look at one of the golden oldies, so come along as "NikMak":http://www.obsidianportal.com/profile/NikMak tells us "What's So Great About King Arthur Pendragon":http://blog.obsidianportal.com/whats-so-great-about-king-arthur-pendragon/.

    If there's a game system you'd like to see covered, please feel free to drop me a line.

    Hi ho forums,

    Thursday didn't take a vacation, which means that there's another Thursday Feature ready for you.
    This week, I offer up some ideas on "Tracking Mass Combat: CCG Style":http://blog.obsidianportal.com/tracking-mass-combat-ccg-style/, so put down that rulebook, and get out those cards.

    Yes. Very interesting. Mass Combat is always tricky. I appreciate any new approaches.

    Are you going to do a blog about how this is not a good site? Going to try City of Brass and Realm Works, as this is really frustrating. No customer service at all, and a community that seems beaten down by the issues.

    Hey guys, following the updates thread, we're back in action with our normal content schedule.

    For this week's Thursday Feature, I touch on the importance of "Managing the Action Economy":http://blog.obsidianportal.com/managing-action-economy/ of a game, and invite you to share your own strategies and stories.

    _(As an aside, I've been informed that there is some display or CSS issue being experienced on the blog. I checked it out myself, and I see it normally on my tablet, but without CSS on my laptop. I've put in a ticket to support, so hopefully this will get resolved quickly. I'm thinking it might have something to do with all of the server migrating that's been going on, but I'll let them sort that out. In the meantime, don't let that discourage you from checking out the article)_

    Yeah, that's what I see on my laptop, I think the css isn't being applied.

    Update on this. I was able to get with support and it turns out there was a minor cache issue that was the culprit. It has been corrected on the back end, so it's just a matter of filtering it's way through all of the various middle men servers out there on the web now.

    Thanks for posting a screenshot on this Skid, having that handy to be able to reference was nice.

    Hey guys, The newest Thursday Feature is now up, so stop over when you get the chance and read my take on how you can "Let Your Players Surprise You":http://blog.obsidianportal.com/let-your-players-surprise-you/ when running a game and add to your fun behind the screen while not _truly_ knowing what's going on in your campaign.

    I'm still having an issue responding to the blog - even on a different device. But a good interesting read, to be sure, to be sure!

    Have you opened a ticket with support regarding this? Now that I'm looking at it, I haven't seen any replies to blog since the move, might be connected - well, aside from the test one I made (which did work).

    Hi Just letting you know that I have posted a comment on the Blog and it now seems to be working for me. In fact, it was so effective, I even posted twice! LOL

    Hey Guys,

    The newest Thursday Feature is now live. I invite you all to contemplate with me about how different things are for "The Modern First-Timer GameMaster":http://blog.obsidianportal.com/thursday-feature-modern-first-timer-gamemaster/.

    An excellent read into a very poignant observation that also evoked a few pleasurable waves of nostalgia.

    I would recommend a follow up of what all those new resources are for modern gamemasters.
