New York Comic Con

We’ll be heading out to New York Comic Con in just a few weeks. It’s been years since we were over on that side of the country and our first time at this particular show. We’ll be sharing a booth there with Scott Kurtz which should be a lot of fun. We’ll have tons of shirts,posters and books. You have to give us money for that stuff but as always I’ll be doing sketches for free.

Speaking of giving us money, our store has been updated. You can now rate all our stuff and leave reviews. We’ve also got better/more pictures for a lot of the stuff in there. 

My Dungeons and Dragons game continues to be a real blast. I was directed to a site called Obsidian Portal by a reader and I wanted to pass it along to you all. The site is designed to help you organize and catalog your tabletop adventure. It’s essentially a custom built Wiki that will allow your players to log their adventure,keep track of important characters and generally flesh out the world. Our group has been using it for our game and it’s been awesome. If you’re a GM or you play in a game, I highly recommend you give Obsidian Portal a look.

I’m brand new to this whole D&D thing so I’ve spent a lot of time on the official Dungeons and Dragons site. I have to say I really don’t understand why WOTC doesn’t have an Obsidian Portal type of set up. It really doesn’t make any sense to me. As a DM I should be able to build a site using official tools and artwork for my game. If they allowed people to do this they’d have a network of these campaign mini sites in no time. It seems to me like they are missing out on a real opportunity here. I understand building something like that would take a lot of recourses but If I were them I’d just call these Obsidian Portal guys today and start talking. 

This is the best gaming news I’ve heard so far this year.
