Follow my campaign planning on Obsidian Portal

Written by Expy - Published on December 9, 2007

New campaign

I set up an Obsidian Portal blog/wiki for my next D&D campaign – Demon Delver. I’ll try to build hype about the campaign during the next 6 months and will start playing it when 4E is released in June.

Feel free to check the campaign out and give it a 5 star rating!

Parallel Adventures

Some scenes from this campaign will be stand-alone side quest that I’ll include in the Parallel Adventures Project. Stay tuned for more on these parallel adventures.

Meet Expy The Red Dragon

Expy is the mascot for DungeonMastering.com and the real mastermind behind Expy Games. He likes to hoard treasure, terrorize neighbors, burn down villages, and tell white dragon jokes..

No matter how fearful the legends claim dragons are, they always end up being defeated in 5 rounds by adventuring parties they encounter. That’s what dragons are – experience points for the heroes in your Dungeons & Dragon party. And this mascot is no different, hence the name Expy.

    Hey, good idea starting one early for the campaign. Are you going to put a lot of back story there? I started to use Obsidian Portal a few adventures in, but the players don’t seem to bother to check it when I put background info on there- they just want their recap and XP total.

  2. Yax says:

    Yeah. It’s mostly going to be backstory, rumors, and events so the characters have a good feel for the game when it starts.

    I’ll add a few scenes and tactical encounters in there too.

    Some of the content will be hosted here. I’ll keep the Obsidian Portal a player resource and I’ll link to the DM stuff hosted on Dungeon Mastering.

    Anyway that’s the plan for now.

    Getting players to join in on the blog/wiki can be tough. For our adventure write-ups, I just assign one player to take notes each session and do the write-up. Considering how much work I do as DM, I don’t think it’s too much to ask. Plus, I won’t give XP until the blog post is up, at least as a rough draft.

    Martin from Treasure Tables has a good post on how to run a campaign website: http://www.treasuretables.org/2005/07/running-a-campaign-website

    I guess the basic idea to take away is: some players love to join in, some just don’t care.

    Thanks Micah!
