Winner of Obsidian Portal’s Special Savage Worlds Campaign Spotlight Event

While discussion of online and app-assisted gaming is often centered around virtual tabletops, character generators, 3D figure modelers, and dice rollers, Obsidian Portal is an invaluable, browser-based, and award-winning campaign management system for roleplaying games. It is also FREE to use!

Recently, Obsidian Portal announced the winner of their Special Savage Worlds Campaign Spotlight Event, with The Color of Night taking home the proverbial blue ribbon along with a gift coupon for the participants from us here at Pinnacle Entertainment Group.

The Color of Night campaign relies on the Savage Worlds Horror Companion and features a game of modern terror that has been running on Obsidian Portal for over a decade! Featuring 44 Adventure Logs, over a hundred characters, unique items, maps, and a creative character fiction section, The Color of Night contains a library of inspirational materials chronicling a truly remarkable game.

Online voters chose the campaign during an eight-hour social media event from a short list of the best Savage Worlds campaigns on O.P. in recent memory. The campaign even bested a former Campaign of the Month-winning GM—no small feat on a platform filled with gaming creatives. To check out all the other nominees, be sure to visit Obsidian Portal’s Twitter and Facebook accounts.

Special thanks go out to all participants, and be sure to check out Obsidian Portal today to see if it’s the campaign management system for you!


Pathfinder® for Savage Worlds—Now LIVE on Kickstarter!

Now on Kickstarter! The time has come to summon your band of brave adventurers and explore Pathfinder’s world of Golarion as never before with Savage Worlds!

We love Paizo’s legendary Adventure Paths. We’ve played them, both in original Pathfinder and with our own Savage Worlds rules. We know you do, too, because we’ve seen literally hundreds of fan-made conversions of these amazing tales over the years. So we decided to make it official and Paizo Inc. was gracious enough to let us play in their sandbox. This means those who love the Savage Worlds game system now get an official conversion of some of the best-selling, most-played, fan-favorite epic fantasy adventure tales in the entire history of the roleplaying game industry!

It all starts with the Pathfinder for Savage Worlds core rulebook, a 256-page, hardback tome that gives you all-new Class Edges, new powers and power options, gear specific to the world of Golarion, magic items, and more. And you don’t need the Savage Worlds Adventure Edition for this one—the entire core Savage Worlds rules system, streamlined and tweaked for Savage Pathfinder, is included!

We’ve also created a Pathfinder for Savage Worlds Bestiary, Game Master’s Screen, and converted the classic and atmospheric adventure Hollow’s Last Hope (catch the premiere of a new Premiere Playtest series of this very adventure starting next Monday, January 25th on our Twitch channel)!

We’re also super excited to bring you the Savage Worlds version of Paizo’s first Adventure Path, Rise of the Runelords. This epic, six-book saga takes Pathfinders on an incredible journey filled with deadly cultists, terrifying ogres, rampaging stone giants, and a final confrontation with… well, we don’t want to ruin the surprise, but there’s a big hint in the title! 😉

Head over to our Kickstarter right now to check out the various digital and print reward levels including the $25 Player (Digital) level and the unbelievable $300 Runelord! level that includes both the the Ultimate Core Boxed Set AND the Rise of the Runelords Boxed Set! Pledge your support, and then keep a watchful eye on those Stretch Goals. We’ve got some great surprises in store for you all that will enhance your Savage Pathfinder campaigns online and in real life!
