    Thank you so much for featuring our campaign, it made us super happy !

    Also big thanks to UselessTriviaMan for nominating us (and for giving me some CSS advice when I just started, I really needed it haha !)

    Thanks again twiggyleaf, and yeah session 0 was a big help for us, especially for me as a newbie GM.

    Congrats @Marion_C your campaign page looks incredible!  I adore the artwork and the idea that you've pretty much built a system - what a daunting task!  I'm very impressed.  Here's hoping you and your players have many more game sessions ahead of you!  Wishing you all the best!

    Thank you so much @camarilladee  ! It was a daunting task indeed, honestly if we had known how much work it was back then we might not have done it ... So I'm glad we didn't know hahaha !

    Wishing you the best too

    Well, it is Mallorylover23's campaign. I did the design work for the site at his direction.  He was the one who insisted on the LCARs look.  And you guys here on the forum are the only reason I got it to work. It was not easy to do.  

    It is a fun campaign and MalloryLover23 is doing a great job as DM.

    Congratulations to Orion_JdR and party for winning the December 2021 COTM! Their campaign, Le Sang versé d’Occitanie ( The Spilled Blood of Occitania), follows two rival groups of players- a vampire pack and a Vampire coterie- in southern France as they navigate a region full of history and mystery.  

    You can find an English Translation of the campaign here, and read our interview with Orion_JdR here

    Congratulations, Nehebkau and Team!  Great work and interesting interview.  This team has not only Level Zero disucssions, but Levels -3, -2 and -1 as well.  Now that's what I call game preparation!

    Just found this, thanks for the kind words again and it was a true honor.  I'll certainly be following campaign of the month and 'stealing' a lot more ideas from other campaigns from here on out!

    Announcing February 2022's Campaign of the month: The Emerald City: Requiem

    HumAnnoyd and his team of fellow players/GMs find themselves drawn back to a familiar locale, first seen in 2012, in their original game. But time didn't wait for them to catch up; much has changed. Then again much hasn't. 

    Check out the OP blog for our interview with HumAnnoyd and team before heading over to see what secrets await in Emerald City: Requiem!

    Congratulations to @GamingMegaverse, @CraigCoxon, @BlkUnicorn, @MachineGunHarry, @Lurch6571, @Faeriemage and @Basileus for together winning Campaign of the Month with Deadlands: Damnation, a trully collaborative campaign well worth a look.  Thanks for the interview - very iluminating.  Can you please tell us more about the "exploding dice".  How do they work?

    Dice rolls in Savage Worlds are "open ended," meaning there's no limit to how high the result can be. This is accomplished through "exploding" the die roll. Simply put, if a die roll lands on the highest possible result (i.e. a 6 on a d6, 8 on a d8, etc.), then you roll that die again and add the results together.

    I love Savage Worlds so, so much. I've run some of my best convention one-shots in that system. It's a generic RPG so you can run any genre or style you'd like, but it really does pulp action stuff (Indiana Jones, Flash Gordon, Charlie's Angels, etc.) very well.
