Would you like to get your hands on both the Fourth Edition Player’s Handbook and Player’s Handbook 2 in one swanky boxed set? I’ve got a stack of them to give away, plus a copy of The Plane Above. Entry is easy and free.
This contest is perfect for introducing new players to D&D. Do you have a co-worker, spouse, friend, sibling or random stranger who you’ve been bugging to join your weekly D&D group? Now you can present them with this handsome collector’s set of the first two Player’s Handbooks, and there’s no way they can say no (unless it’s the random stranger — you should probably leave that guy alone). Heck, you can keep the sweet collector’s set yourself and give your old PHBs to the noob. I won’t tell. Or maybe you’ve been thinking about trying out 4th Edition D&D and haven’t had the wherewithal to go out and get yourself the books. Now you have no more excuses.
But wait, this is a great contest for veteran 4Eers too. You know you’re tired of passing the PHB2 around the table so your cousin can check the keywords on his druid powers, or trying to read through the pizza sauce stains on the feat list. Have you been holding off on buying the PHB3 because you didn’t have the first two yet? Well, now you’re just stalling. There’s always that Plane Above book, too.
So, what do you have to do to enter the contest? Not much. I’d like to get some new readers for Robot Viking along with some new people playing D&D with their shiny new PHBs, so you’ll have to post to Twitter about the contest. Specifically:
Using your own Twitter account, post a message with the following text: “Win a free 4E Player’s Handbook Collection from @therobotviking. #robotviking #dnd http://bit.ly/dlGvfE” during the contest dates. Entrants may post no more than one entry per day.
If you don’t have a Twitter account, they’re free and easy to sign up for. The contest runs until 11 p.m. eastern time on Friday, May 14. Winner will be contacted via their Twitter account, so make sure and check.
Entering the contest means you’ve read and agree to the contest rules, terms and conditions:
