I’d also like to thank those wonderful people over at Pathfinder who have not only managed to save D&D 3.5e from certain death, but have managed to breathe new life into the system. The many gamers out there still loyal to 3.5 owe you all a debt of gratitude. You can check out their suburb line up of products below:

There are also a number of people whom I would like to thank for contributing to this site in various ways. First, thanks to Micah and the other administrators of this site for introducing the Obsidian Portal to the Gaming World. I can tell you that it has been an invaluable aid to myself and my fellow players, and I’m sure that others here at the Portal would heartily agree.

Second, thanks to Will, Chris and Craig for making this campaign a reality, and also for the contributions that each of you are making to this site. In particular, I’d like to thank Chris for the original artwork which he has contributed to this site. You can find both his and my own artwork on our site by clicking on the link below:

Third, thanks to the good people of the Cartographers Guild for helping me to make our campaign map of the Western Baronies (featured in the maps section). I could not have achieved this feat without the aid and advice of the Guild.

Fourth, thanks to Onsilius for giving me the idea for “Prestige Points”, which was modeled after the house rules on karma in his Minrothad Campaign.

Fifth, thanks to Chainsaw XIV for his totally unoficial, but “totally awesome” help and tips FAQ. I learned a good deal about basic HTML formatting from this FAQ. Below is a link to ready made HTML templates that Chainsaw has compiled on his site.

Sixth, thanks to Grunn for his how to: custom wiki sidebar tutorial. While I have not used quite the same navigational system for this campaign site, my own system was nevertheless influenced by Grunn’s pioneering work. You can see Grunn’s wiki side-bar in action on his site at the link below.


Finally, I have been tremendously inspired by the talents of JimTriche, Gaaran, Duskreign, andSandman (among others). I am also very grateful for their friendship. You guys have really helped make the OP forums a welcoming community.
