Time For A New Set of Armor
For a long time, we’ve always gotten great feedback on our shirts. We’re really happy that our community members have been a huge fan of the “My Other Shirt is Chainmail” design for quite some time now.
It’s time for something new though, but this time we’re going to let you, our community, design them! These are going to be the shirts we send to fans, give away as prizes, wear at conventions, and for the general purpose of showing our Obsidian Portal spirit.
Another Great Year of Gaming!
It’s that time again! Start casting your votes for who should win the title of Campaign of the Year for 2014. Our winner will not only receive the prestige of the title itself, but a gilded trophy filled with dice!
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.
A Fresh Comic Awaits Your Silly Words!
The summer heat is in full swing, and something is definitely going on in this blank comic strip by d20Monkey… it needs your words! We’re going to go out on a limb and say there’s going to be quite a few brokeback mountain jokes here, let’s just try and keep them at least remotely tasteful, shall we? Speaking of tasteful, you should know that Brian Patterson of d20Monkey is trying to make comics a full-time gig you can help support him by checking out his Patreon page if you’re interested in pitching in!
Don’t forget that the d20 Monkey contest is going on and that you’ve still got a little bit of time left to submit to our April’s fool contest! Also, be sure to check out part 2 of our interview with Rob Schwalb.
Also – we’re hiring a Background Image Designer!

This Contest Is No Joke!
Ah yes, April. The month containing the one day of the year when you cannot believe anything you see or read on the internet. Together with Engine Publishing, we’d like to take this month and put some good spin on it by coming up with a contest for fools. Literally. We’d like you to create a fool for folks to use in their games.
