Thanks to some new sponsors, the Iron GM contest at Total Con will award some seriously lavish prizes to both winning GMs and participating players.
As Rone Barton mentioned in the comments of last week’s Iron GM post, the winning GM, in addition to the trip to Gen Con, will get a check for $1,000. I hope they use one of those huge novelty checks.
You don’t have to win, or even GM, to score some swag. All those hopeful Iron GMs need players to slaughter and entertain. It costs a $5 event fee to play, but not only do you get a few hours of RPG excellence, you get $50 worth of books and subscriptions. If you’re anywhere near Boston for Total Con, I’m thinking you should probably make plans to be there.
All the prizes are the result of the organizers’ tireless efforts to secure sponsors. Just who are those sponsors? Gaming Paper, makers of fine gaming paper; OffWorld Designs, crafters of hilarious gaming related t-shirts; and Mindgene, developer of D20Pro, a virtual game table for, yes, D20.
