I started gaming back when I was in college when I was part of a campaign my Junior year that was aborted because of a DM whose class load just kept him too busy to continue.
That summer one of my friends came to me and said he’d like to try his hand at DMing. He thought he’d be able to put together a great campaign and had a lot of ideas that he wanted to play out. He asked me to help him build a world. We started bouncing ideas around and what came out of it was the alpha version of the campaign world that we are currently playing. We finished up the campaign in college and my DM said lets do this again but flesh it out more.
He found Obsidian Portal and we’ve since been piling information into the wiki. While he was busy forming plotlines, the formatting of the site fell to me. Alas I found that I had no experience with CSS or HTML. So I decided to learn.
Alas work and life kept me from continuing that campaign but I have started DMing my own crew in 5e and despite the trials of getting schedule aligned I have a solid crew of players who really want to help tell a great story.
