A New Dark Age
So, with yesterday marking the return of Unhallowed Metropolis in its new revised format, we’d like to share our love for the game by bringing you guys a chance to win a copy of this amazing title – hot off the presses!
There’s already two introductory adventures free and readily available to sate your Neo-Victorian thirst for guns, gas masks and the walking dead; Salvation and Sanctuary. I personally ran Sanctuary myself and had an absolute blast with it, as did my players. I highly recommend checking these adventures out, they come complete with pregens, maps and a quick reference sheet. Don’t like pregens? Grab a character sheet and roll your own!
Okay gals and guys, you know the rules by now! Submit your best captions, word bubbles, thought bubbles or whatever suits your fancy in the comments below. When judging time comes you could be the one to win 3 months of Ascendant membership time, get your comic posted on d20Monkey.com and an Obsidian Portal T-shirt!
Just to sweeten the deal I might even send a few bits of leftover OP schwag from gencon with the T-shirt!
This caption will run into early-mid September so you’ve got a few weeks at the least, get wise crackin’!
Congrats to Zorana on winning the Fiasco contest! We hope you enjoy all your Fiasco goodies and the hours of enjoyment to soon follow! Please, everyone feel free to keep commenting and discussing the game in the comments below!
Let Me Tell You A Story
During our last day at Gencon, Micah and myself were pulled into a game of Fiasco by Danny Rupp of Critical-Hits (aka @Bartoneus the Architect DM) along with about a dozen other folks, we wound up with 4 full tables of games going on. While neither Micah or I were honestly too keen on the idea of playing at first, I’m fairly certain the experience was some of the most fun we had during the whole convention and I’m very glad we played.
Orc: “This erection has lasted WAY more than 4 hours.”
Drow: “Time to hit it with the “Finger of Death.”!
Congrats to our winner Spectre615 who created the above caption! Be sure to check out the fully captioned version on d20Monkey.com as well.

Well Helooooo Adventurers…
Want to see yourself (or your RPG character) inside the super hilarious d20Monkey comic strip? Maybe you just want to show off your superior comedic prowess…or maybe this lovely ogre ‘lady’ is just too irresistible for you?! No matter the case, we’re challenging you to caption this image for a shot at fame and fortune! Okay, well, maybe just fame. Internet fame, but fame none the less!
Rules & Rewards
The winner will get their caption published on the d20Monkey comic strip with recognition, as well as a cameo appearance within the strip as a cartoonized version of themself (or their character, which doesn’t have to be of the fantasy genre). Just to top it all off we’re throwing in 3 months of Ascendant time to sweeten the deal.
Note: The cameo appearance is a one time only offer while we kick off this series, subsequent winners of caption contests after this one will not have themselves placed into the d20Monkey strip.
The Not-So Fine Print
You’ll have until the stroke of midnight, April 30th 2011 to get your caption(s) in, you may submit as many as you like. You must submit them as a comment to this blog post via the handy comment section seen below. For the sake of clarity, if you choose to submit multiple entries please do so with each one as it’s own individual comment. There is no right or wrong way to caption this, be it word/thought bubbles, a single caption to encompass the entire image or whatever else you can think of!
The winner will be chosen jointly by Obsidian Portal staff and comic author Brian Patterson and announced on May 5th 2011. Good luck!
