As I recently updated on my Patreon page, it has been quite a year for my family and I. Through it all, I have been happy to post new episodes of Ego Check with The Id DM and write a few articles for the blog. I wish to end the year on a high note to celebrate the podcast, and that brings us to the Dungeons & Dragons Holiday Giveaway! At the end of the week, I’ll select a random person from those that enter to win the following fabulous group of prizes (my D&D table is not included!):
One copy of Xanathar’s Guide to Everything
One Dice bag with D&D dice
One Tome of Annihilation dice tin
Four Tomb of Annihilation notebooks
Assorted D&D stickers
The giveaway above supporting ‘Ego Check with The Id DM’ is not administrated, sponsored, or endorsed by Wizards of the Coast.
How to Enter
There are two steps to enter the contest for a chance to win the loot pictured above:
The random drawing from those that enter the contest will take place on Friday, December 15th, and then I can get the prizes in the mailbox so it arrives to the winner before the holiday.
I am hoping 2018 is less tumultuous; however, I am fortunate to have a great deal of support from family, friends, and a wonderful online community of followers and fans. Truly and sincerely, thank you to everyone that continues to support my creative efforts. Have a fantastic holiday season, and good luck scoring the loot!
Last month, I announced an art contest and I had no idea what to expect in terms of a response. I asked for submissions on art depicting the blog’s official mascot, Iddy the Lich. Throughout the month of September, I was pleasantly surprised to receive eight entries into the contest. As I mentioned, there will be three winners; each winner will received a custom The Id DM dice bag created by Dragon Chow.
The winners will be decided by three voting processes. The first is quite simple, I’m going to select my favorite. The second will be a free-for-all, open-to-the-public voting period that will begin today and conclude next Monday, October 15th. The third will be a private vote from each of the eight artists who submitted an entry (and they cannot vote for their own entry).
Before displaying the entries, I want to thank each artist for sending me their rendition of Iddy the Lich. I was happy to receive each entry throughout the month of September; it always brightened my day when a new entry arrived in my inbox!
Please consume the Iddy the Lich entries and vote for your favorite. Also, please investigate the talents of each artist through their website or Twitter feed – I have included the links below.
One of my primary goals at Gen Con was tracking down as many of the people I have gotten to know in some capacity over the last year or two through my blog. As a way to thank the individuals who were kind enough to agree to an interview for my site, I had special The Id DM dice bags created by Dragon Chow Dice Bags. The end result was fantastic, and I was excited to dispense the bags at the convention.
There are still a few individuals I need to reach so I can mail them a bag; not everyone was at Gen Con. But it was a pleasure to finally meet the following people in person after communicating with them online for interviews:
I once again offer my gratitude for their time and willingness to respond to my questions. And if you enjoy the photo of the dice bag above, then this is your lucky day because I am going to run my first-ever contest through this site. Multiple winners will be mailed a The Id DM dice bag created by Dragon Chow Dice Bags. Read below for the details!
