SGAM 2018 Giveaways!

New for 2018, we’ve partnered with Larcenous Designs to offer some giveaways to SGAM participants!

Nathan Rockwood, educator, game designer, and proprietor of Larcenous Designs, LLC has graciously agreed to offer up several of the ever-popular The GameMaster’s Apprentice decks as giveaways to SGAM participants. We’re very excited to have this support and the opportunity to hand out some freebies!

Larcenous Designs Larcenous Designs is dedicated to the theory that games are as important to the world as any other form of literature, and all our work is meant to promote games as a worthwhile experience for everyone. Please join us in bringing gaming not just into the mainstream of recreation, but into learning and academia as well!

The Giveaways

The GameMaster’s Apprentice decks are a prized possession of many a solo and GM-less gamer, GMs, and even authors! Each of 7 themed decks has 120 cards and each card includes a dozen or more randomizers for generating everything from dice rolls to sights and sounds to NPCs and random events. If you aren’t familiar, I recommend you check out the (free) instruction download through DriveThruRPG and the demonstration videos on Youtube.

The plan is to give away one of each of the 7 GMA decks to Story Seed participants. But that’s not all! A Grand Prize that includes all 7 decks will be awarded to the winner of a NEW challenge.

Each winner will receive a DriveThruRPG download link/code good for a FREE PDF version of the deck(s) (regularly $9.99/each) and at-cost print-on-demand pricing (about $5-6 per deck, plus shipping – roughly 70% off the full retail price).

How to Enter

Any time in November, submit an entry into the Story Seeds community project and you’ll be entered into a raffle to be drawn at the end of the month for one of 7 themed GMA decks. Easy as that!

To be entered for the Grand Prize, you must complete the new challenge to Create a solo game or tool for the community. At the close of SGAM 2018, one of our solo gaming cat herders (Todd Zircher) will create a poll with links to all entries. Then, the solo gaming community will vote for a winner.

For additional details, see this document created by Todd Zircher about the giveaways and how to enter.

We hope this adds to the fun and excitement of SGAM 2018! Good luck, and we look forward to reading (and using) your Story Seeds and new games and tools!
