Tonight, we’re joined by Brian Patterson and Tracy Barnett of the newly formed Exploding Rogue Studios! Tune in as we talk about Karthun, and lots more. Be sure to hit up their website for all the details on stalking them online!
Also, don’t forget that our friends over at Roll20 are hiring. Beyond that, let’s get on with the show!
- Vanguard wrap up, huge thanks to all who participated and congrats to Wolfhound on winning the huge prize pack. Bits and pieces will be on their way soon!
- New Backgrounds are up, more soon!
- Having just recovered from con crud, we will be judging the Summer of Flames contest soon.
It’s August and Gencon is just around the corner, the temperatures are rising and so is everyone’s anticipation for the next edition of D&D. We’ve been covering a lot of news regarding 5e on the Haste Podcast and Jerry has been talking about it a lot on his blog.
Obviously, we’re pretty excited ourselves and so we’d like to give everyone a chance at winning some awesome 5e schwag, whether you’re going to gencon or not this year! What better goodies to give away than some 5e D&D Starter Sets, and maybe even a Player’s Handbook! The contest is simple, but you’ve only got until the end of Gencon to enter, here’s how:
In one line: Tell us the best way to beat the heat! Whether you’re avoiding fireballs, surviving a red dragon’s breath, or simply not shriveling up under the Dark Sun.
“I cast any remaining ice spells inside my house before I go to sleep and re-memorize everything, just so I have some A/C while I sleep”
“Huddle behind my my shield and hope all this ‘dwarven craftsmanship’ pays off when the dragon starts spewing fire”
“Stow my canteen of water in the last place anyone would look – inside the severed orc head that dangles from my belt.”
How to enter:
- In one sentence or less, and in a D&D (or at least “fantasy”) themed response, tell us how you or your character is beating the heat this summer. Get creative!
- Submit it as a comment below, no more than 3 entries per person, one entry per comment
On August 17th, at midnight, the contest will close. Afterward, 4 winners will be randomly chosen to win a D&D 5e Starter Set, and one additional hand-picked winner of our choice will receive a d20Monkey “Whining is Coming” T-shirt along with a D&D 5e Player’s Handbook, and a Starter Set as well.
Note: Contest winners limited to US/Canada only due to shipping expenses, if you are overseas you are still welcome to enter, upon winning we can offer a year of free Ascendant subscription time.
Congrats to our Fool contest winner, we had to pick 4 instead of 3 because it was so hard to decide! Our winning NPCs are Roger Larrabee (telepath), Barkley (fey guardian), Craig the Battle Droid (butler artillery), and Terrence McGoven (awkward helicopter pilot).
Lastly, if you consider yourself a D&D history junkie be sure to read Ambush At Sheridan Springs – a story about how Gary Gygax lost D&D.
The d20Monkey caption contest has found itself a winner, be sure to stop by and check out the winning line, and also stay tuned for a new caption contest very soon. Also, if you enjoy Brian’s work and want to help him transition into becoming an artist full time, please go check out his Patreon page and consider chipping in.
Also, our friend Justin Mason is part of the Adventure A Week Snow White Kickstarter which seems pretty cool if you ask us. Check it out and be sure to pass it on to any fellow Pathfinder players you might know
We stumbled across these RPG Dice for the Visually Impaired, tell us if they are useful or not, we’d really like to know!
