Create a Forum Topic

Discussions that happen on your Obsidian Portal campaign's forums occur inside of threads of posts called topics. As the GM of (or participant in) a campaign with access to Ascendant features, your campaign forum is whatever you choose to make it with your topics. Whether for play-by-post, coordinating game sessions, bluebooking or anything in between, your topics remain safely on the campaign's forums - so long as you or the GM don't delete them (see Delete a Forum Topic).
To create a forum topic:
  1. Navigate to the dashboard of the campaign you wish to create a forum topic for.
  2. Click the "Forum" tab.
  3. Click the "+" icon in the left hand column.
  4. Enter a topic name in the "Name" input field.
  5. Select a location from the subforum drop-down (if displayed).
  6. Enter the desired message in the topic body text area.
  7. Click the "Save" button.
After clicking to save, you will be redirected back to the "Forum" tab to view your newly created topic . A brief notification will indicate that "Your topic was created. Everyone has been emailed." All campaign participants will be sent an email about the post containing a link to view the topic - where they can then post a response if they wish to do so (see Create a Forum Post). Unless you are the GM, or have been promoted to the role of Co-GM (see Promote a Player to Co-GM), you may only edit your own topics (see Edit a Forum Topic).
Note: Alternatively, you may utilize the "+" icon from the "Forum" section of the dashboard to reach the topic creation interface.
