The Saving Throw
Contest Time September 7, 2007
Create a monster and win!

Mail Me · Discuss · Roleplaying Forum

Roll them bones!

Another couple weeks have passed, and again its time for another Saving Throw. This week we have three reviews and also the launch of our new Create-a-Monster monster contest. Read on below for information on the reviews and the contest.

After the news glut that was GenCon, information has been rather light of late. Wizards of the Coast has been trickling out information about Dungeons & Dragons 4th Edition, but so far it has been just enough to make the curious even more curious about the new version.

Our reviews this week are of Monster Manual V, Sharn: City of Towers, and Shadowdale: The Scouring of the Land; making a Dungeons and Dragons trifecta.

Create-A-Monster Contest Begins
 

   Ever fancied yourself a master monster creator? Ever built a monster solely for the thrill of the TPK? Now is your chance to use that skill to score yourself some loot. Simply submit your monster, template, or new race to savingthrow@rpgamer.com. Be sure to include stats, a sample monster, a detailed description and any other information such as tactics, ecology and lore regarding the monster. Sketches are not necessary, but feel free to include them. The Saving Throw staff will narrow the submissions down to seven and then our guest celebrity judges, Erik Mona and James Jacobs, will choose a grand prize winner and runner up. We have a copy of Expedition to the Ruins of Greyhawk, autographed by the three authors; Erik Mona, James Jacobs and Jason Bulmahn, and other prize we have is a copy of Shadowdale: The Scouring of the Land. The grand prize winner has his or her choice of which title they want.

Outro

There you have it, another column. Be sure to start working on those monsters and get them ready for battle. Next time, we'll have reviews of Expedition to the Ruins of Greyhawk, The Book of Templates: Deluxe Edition and possibly more, if my schedule permits.

Again, if you have any suggestions, ideas, or other things you think might improve the column, just click on the email link below and send me an email.
