The Winners of the "Post a 0-Level Occupation for the DCC RPG" Are...

This really was difficult in the most awesome of ways. I never expected the number of entries - 133 - let alone the high quality of the entries. If I could give everyone a prize I would, but I can't.

So, here are the prize winners:

Winner of Issues 1 and 2 of Crawl!, the DCC Fanzine is... SAROE for the following entry:

Dwarf Dentist
Trained Weapon-Hammer
Trade Goods-Chisel, Sack of Teeth (6d6)
Not real good on the preventive care side of things-but for extractions they tend to get the right tooth in less than three tries. This made me laugh out loud and got my wife walking over to check it out :)

SAROE, I'll need your snail mail address so I can forward it on to Dak.

The following 5 posters have won their choice of one of the first 16 releases from the Toys For the Sandbox series AND their choice of either TFTSB #23 Pirate Island or #24 The Lost Colony. The first part of this prize selection is from me and the second part is courtesy of Quinn Conklin, the writer of the Toys For the Sandbox series.

Okay - the winners above need to reach out to me at the following email: erikATtrubluniteDOTnet.

It was an amazing experience to run this contest. Now I need to find a way to surpass this with the next contest ;)


  1. Congrats to the winners. And to Tenkar for putting this whole ting together. There were a ton of great entries.

  2. Yep - 133 of them.

    At the beginning of the summer i had thoughts of joining the excellent ranks of the "ziners", but I could never pull off the on time consistant quality folks like you, christian, dak and all the others do.

    I am good at highs and lows of inconsistant quality on this blog.

    This contest swept away my high water mark ;)

  3. Congratulations to the winners, and thanks Erik for putting on a great contest! I also love how your Google Ads are now displaying a bunch of links for "Pie Recipes" Ha!

  4. It took a bit of time for me to figure out which email account I actually use for RPGNow, but I managed in the end. It's alexei_mcdonald at hotmail dot com.

  5. Prince Herb - need you to pick your two prizes, or we will pic for you ;)

    choice of one of the first 16 releases from the Toys For the Sandbox series AND their choice of either TFTSB #23 Pirate Island or #24 The Lost Colony. The first part of this prize selection is from me and the second part is courtesy of Quinn Conklin, the writer of the Toys For the Sandbox series.

  6. Please make the choice for me! I know you will pick the very finest possible prizes.

  7. "Poseur Assassin" made me guffaw.

    Reminded me of Saturdays scrounging for old comics at my local flea market, while the bigger kids stocked up on ninja stars and bandannas.

    1980s, indeed.
