Hey! All you old school grognards!
Check out this excellent contest sponsored by the Secret DM. Grand prize includes one each of the 1E rulebooks recently reissued by WoTC. Here’s what you go to do to win:
“During the month from July 27th, 2012 through August 27th, 2012, you must submit a set of 10 to 20 room descriptions that evoke the feeling of a 1st edition dungeon crawl. The specifics are entirely up to you, and may include whatever traps, monsters, treasures, etc. you feel necessary. Each entry will be reviewed by a panel of judges, and an overall winner will be declared based on quality, originality, fun, and 1st edition-ness.”
Speaking of contests, my much more modest monthly What Is It? contest is back in the swing of things. Check it out as well. The winner of this contest receives a $5 gift certificate to DriveThruRPG.
