A living campaign setting is much like any other campaign setting except it provides an on-going and ever evolving multi-level storyline. The concept is that, over time, the setting will amass a level of complexity and detail that cannot be matched by a traditional campaign setting. And, best of all: it’s free to use.
What is platform neutral?
This means that the setting isn’t designed for a specific role-playing game platform. Instead the information is provided as a general guideline for game masters to run their own game sessions and campaigns based in the mechanics of whichever platform they see fit. If you don’t use a specific role playing game system that’s no problem. Mythic Design will soon be releasing a custom rule system tailored specifically for use with the Xionfall living campaign setting.
Why Obsidian Portal?
Well, beside the fact that the Mythic Design team thinks this is a great service for all players and game masters, it is also the perfect tool to use for an ongoing living campaign setting.
