Tell Us about Your Character and Win a Trip to Gen Con!

By on 19 May 2009

Fancy a trip to Gen Con this summer? Well, here’s a little promotion that has been put together for D&D here in the UK that gives you just that chance: Tell the judges about your character, and you could win a trip to Gen Con in the US this August, or one of a bunch of other cool prizes! They’re looking for the most interesting conversions of 3rd-edition characters to 4th edition, and they’re holding a promotion to find them. If you enter, you could win a trip to Gen Con in the US, autographed copies of the Player’s Handbook 2 and Monster Manual 2, or a 3-month subscription to D&D Insider.

Helping out with this are some great judges, including D&D Creative Manager Chris Perkins, and Russ Morrissey, the owner of EN World, the world’s biggest D&D fan site. But the judges simply narrow the field–the public will vote for the final winner.

To find out how you can submit your character, visit You’ll find all the details plus terms and conditions for the promotion. But don’t dawdle: To be considered, your submission must be entered by Friday, 12 June, 2009.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave’s first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft).

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at
