I plan to close out the year with 2 contests - this is the first.
This is all you need to do:
1 - Refer to any edition of the T&T rules. If you don't have a copy of the rules, you can find an abridged version here for free.
2 - Write a spell for T&T using the following 1st Level T&T spell examples for format (taken from the abridged rules) - Silly names always work in T&T
Oh There It Is (4) Usually detects concealed or invisible things or doors by surrounding them with a purple glow that slowly fades.
Take That, You Fiend (6) Uses IQ as weapon, inflicting hits equal to caster's IQ. Must be directed at an indi- vidual foe. No effect on inanimate objects.
3 - Submit your entries as a comment to this blog post. Contest ends midnite on the Dec 24th. Prizes will be awarded the weekend of the 25th/26th.
Tunnels & Trolls 7.5e Rules. My personal favorite entry will get a PDF copy of Bean! The D2 RPG.
This is my way of thanking my readers. Above prizes are from my account credit at RPGNow, thanks to all of you.
Next contest should be live in a few days to go along with this one.
Oh, almost forgot. All entries from folks on my Google Friends Connect (otherwise known at the Tavern as Regular Tavern Patrons) will be entered into a drawing for $125 worth of PDF gaming goodness curtesy of RPGNow (it's the same list I awarded at the beginning of the month). If you missed out the first time around, here's a second change to win it. All entries from folks on my Google Friends list in this contest and the next will be entered into a pool for the big prize. So, if you follow the site, but don't follow via Google Friends, here's a good reason to do so.
Big prize package with be awarded on January 1st, 2011.
