New caption comic is up, get on it!

Come to our panel this year for some conversation and to find out who wins the award. We hope to see you at gencon!
Winner for best ‘How I Got Into RPG’s’ contest is Tallyrand with his story of transformation from the uncool jock into the super-cool uber gamer. Here it is:
I was a jock in high school, so needless to say I was teased mercilessly by the ‘cool’ kids in the gaming club. That is until the GM of the local group made a bet that he could get the coolest girl in school (Gary Gygax was her uncle) to ask me out. He taught me the slang, helped me pick out some nerdy tee-shirts, and ran me through drill after drill of dungeon mastering until finally he let me DM The Temple of Elemental Evil the week before prom. When her character was the only one to survive the 1st room she fell for me and asked me right there at the table. I realized then then I was cool all along, I just needed to believe in myself.
Also be sure to check out our contest with RPG Stack Exchange, you could win 75$ of whatever gaming goodies you want!
Paying It Forward
This year at Gencon we’re going to start a new tradition for Obsidian Portal and its users. We’ve won our fair share of awards and we think it’s only right to dish out some recognition of our own. We’re up to our eyeballs in awesome stuff we dig up weekly for the Haste podcast, and it’s damn hard to not want to individually reach out to all of these people and say “hey, this is awesome!”
That’s why we’re calling upon you to tell us who you think is the very best at revolutionizing the blending of tech and tabletop!
