ENnie award-winning site Obsidian Portal has been bought by one of its developers.
The site helps you manage your tabletop campaign, offering up wiki-like functionality, character sheets and trackers, adventure logs and the like for free. Or, you can pay $6 a month (or $50 a year) for more storage space, more maps, multi-GM support and versioning.
The team now running the site will be familiar to Obisidian Portal users; content creator Jynx001 (Steve), developer and community manager Kallak (Dan) and the developers noma4i (Alex) and thaen.
How did a site developer manage to buy the site? Thaen says he’s not rich; he went all in. Running OP is his full-time job, as his full attention and I imagine his financial security now depends on persuading gamers to use the site and upgrade to the paid plan.
