National Gaming Day - November 15th

An article I just picked up in my RSS news reader indicates that Wizards of the Coast is providing the first 1000 libraries who sign up for National Gaming Day with free D&D books and MtG starter decks, etc.

This is a good thing!

Regardless of whether you can say "I <3 DD" or not, events like this bring new players to the ever-shrinking crowd of table-top gamers. We should all pitch in and support this.

Want to change the face of gaming?

Want to get people to realize that D&D players are NOT a bunch of murdering, raping scum-bags that rarely leave their momma's basement?

Yeah? Then contact your local library and volunteer to DM a game on November 15th. Do something good, and spark the imagination of young minds.

Just please (please!) remember to bath before heading outside... =D

Nominate your favorite blog post from any RPG blog to OPEN GAME TABLE: The 2008 Anthology of Roleplaying Game Blogs. More information, including a call for volunteers to help organize this project, please visit the Open Game Table working group.


  1. Interesting. I'll see about whether my local library will accept this sort of thing or not. I live in JAYSUS Country, so these sort of charitable democratic processes can't be taken for granted unless they involve old people and benches.

    Whether or not Wyatt "Atomic Rage" Salazar can uplift the perceived image of the gaming community though, is another matter entirely.

  2. I'll have to see what I can do. These are awesome events and it is great that WOTC is going through the effort to sponsor this.
