Mikazemas giveaway: PDFs about GMing and game design


Gamer Life General Discussion


In the spirit of (a slightly early) Mikazemas, I’m planning to buy PDFs for at least nine forum members. If you’d like to enter the draw, please post in this thread by 11:59 pm on Friday the 30th of November 2018 (Seattle time). You don’t need to specify your choice of prize at this stage. Winners will be determined by this forum’s random number generator. Each winner will be able to choose one prize package from the following list:

Package 1 From Engine Publishing: Odyssey: The Complete Game Master's Guide to Campaign Management (PDF) + Unframed: The Art of Improvisation for Game Masters (PDF)

Package 2 From Engine Publishing: Focal Point: The Complete Game Master's Guide to Running Extraordinary Sessions (PDF) + Never Unprepared: The Complete Game Master's Guide to Session Prep (PDF)

Package 3 From Engine Publishing: Eureka: 501 Adventure Plots to Inspire Game Masters (PDF)

Package 4 From Engine Publishing: Masks: 1,000 Memorable NPCs for Any Roleplaying Game (PDF)

Package 5 From Kobold Press: Complete KOBOLD Guide to Game Design (PDF)

Package 6 From Kobold Press: Kobold Guide to Plots and Campaigns (PDF) + The Kobold Guide to Gamemastering (PDF)

Package 7 From Paizo: Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: GameMastery Guide (PDF) + Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: Villain Codex (PDF)

(For more by the team who created the books from Engine Publishing, see the Gnome Stew blog. And the Kobold Press website has a list of articles by category.)

Sorry, random number generator. It seems that your services will not be required at this time.

Alzrius, djdust, grimdog73 and Readerbreeder: You've each won a PDF package! If you reply to let me know your preferred prize, I can begin making purchases…

There are still prizes available! If anyone else is interested: the next five people to join this thread and post their choice (from the list at the start of the thread) will also be able to claim some PDFs.

Package #1 for me, please!


Alzrius and Readerbreeder: Your choices should now be available to download from your Paizo accounts - let me know if this doesn’t seem to have worked. I hope these PDFs end up being useful (or at least interesting) for you!

Merry Mikazemas and happy gaming!

Awesom to see this thread ^w^

No presents for me, just nudging this since the weekend is over so hopefully more people see it.
