It’s a party! TiMG turns 1 year old!!!1

Thats right! About a year ago today i sat down at my computer and decided to start a gaming blog. Now we are celebrating its 1st birthday! It’s not that I didn’t think this we site (This is My Game) wouldn’t make it a whole year, I just didn’t think it would make it with such gusto!
To celebrate the occasion we are going to be giving away prizes all month long! That’s right we are doing a while birthday month! And instead of asking for presents we will be giving them away. Along with the giveaways we will posting some great content and a few selections from the last year that we feel were some of our best.

To start off the bash we will be giving way a patron position in Kobold Quarterly’s newest open design project “Midgard”. The project will be a campaign setting for the Dragon Age and Pathfinder game setting. Here is what the winner will get to be a part of.

From the open design page:

What is Patronage?

If you’ve never participated in a patron project before, you are in for something new and exciting. Patronage provides the chance to modify a game design before it sees print, and to put your mark on a project. Our version of patronage is based on the ancient practice of nobles and merchants funding the works of artists, composers, authors and poets. When you become a patron of an Open Design project you are in charge, offering critique and suggestions, perhaps even adding elements to the design yourself.

Patron Perks:

1) Design Discussion and Review

Like all Open Design projects, your opinion matters. Choose what regions to build, and comment, suggest, and critique it before it sees print.

2) Chats and Virtual Tabletop Games

The Midgard project will use online chats and virtual tabletop tools to make feedback faster and easier. Major supporters can even playtest with the designers!

3) Limited Edition Hardcover

The regions above will be designed as they reach their commission, and the whole project will be edited and illustrated to the highest standard. A 160-plus page, limited-edition hardcover will be available to patrons of the project. The book will also be available in softcover to the public.

4) Worldbuilder’s Handbook

A collection of 50 years of experience and advice by Baur, Grubb, and others on worldbuilding tips and tricks, how to improve your home campaign, and how to maximize your setting’s value to players. A guide to one-shot settings and years-long campaign arcs, and building a setting that supports play.

5 ) Campaign Setting PDF

The complete PDF of the work you’ve seen and approved!

6) Credit in the Final Work

And best of all, your contributions will be acknowledged in the setting credits. Bragging rights!

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment in the comment section of this post, thats it nothing more! The winner will be selected at random at the end of the week Saturday February 5th.

As always the rules are as follows:

  1. Only enter if you are going to use the prize. If I (Thadeous)  find out you have sold your prize, or given it away on another site I will show up at your house and beat you about the face an neck.
  2. Do not create alternate accounts and enter more than once. It’s not fair, it’s not cool and it will result in the same punishment as breaking rule #1
  3. International entries will be responsible for covering shipping cost over $8.50USD, if you win and it costs more than that you will have to cover the remainder.
  4. Rules are subject to change at the whim of the creator and authors of this site.
  5. By entering you will be granting the creator and authors of this site the rights to use your likeness and name in promotions related to this site and contest, and to glue pictures of your face and head on images of bikini models for shits and giggles.

Look everyone we also got a special gift from Kobold Quarterly to go along with our birthday celebration! If you have never read KQ now is the best time to check it out free!

From now through February 9, they can go to the KQ Store and use the coupon code KQ11Gift to download a free PDF copy of Kobold Quarterly #11.

Good luck everyone and happy birthday to This is My Game!
