Creature animations by Lisa Konrad borrowed from
INTRO VIDEO by twiggyleaf – Music by TardisHead!

I have taken most of the artwork in this campaign from the internet. I am grateful for all the work done and the enhancement it lends to my campaign, but as I am not using this site for any profit, I hope the chosen artists will accept this. Where any artist has specifically requested, I will cite their name or make a link to their website, as I have done with Lisa Konrad’s animations. If any artist featured on my site wishes me to remove their artwork, I will do so gladly, but otherwise hope that no umbrage is taken.

I would like to thank Gary Gygax (RIP), Dave Arneson and all other developers of the Dungeons & Dragons game who have inspired me and given me so much fun over the years.

    This whole site would not have been possible without the expert assistance of other Obsidian Portal members who have contributed, not only with their comments and advice, but some with direct assistance in helping me to set up html and textile coding (an area of great weakness in my current knowledge bank).

    For this I would particularly like to thank Arsheesh, Dark Magus, DM Loki and KillerVP. Also many thanks to Chainsaw XIV for his premade templates, which have been of great use to me.

    Other fellow Portal Members I would like to thank for their comments and forum inputs are:
    Duskreign, McHappory, Arronax, Pils, StephenWollett, Leonidas300,

    Last but not least: The Players who have been putting their characters through the cojoined planar hell that is “SHIMRING” – Neil, Donald, Matthew, Gabe, Freddy, Dave, Vinny, Ian, Gordon, Ben, Karie – I salute you!
