We’re approaching the 500,000 hits point here at A Character For Every Game (about a week away according to my math), and I have some prize support courtesy of the awesome folks over at Q Workshop (the company who’s dice I have adorning the banner image for the blog and the d6 I use as my avatar on a hundred different message boards, blogs and other online media).
Prize support? That means I need some sort of contest!
My first thought was a “do something really cool with one of my dungeon maps” contest, but I was beat to the punch by an awesome contest with the same rules by Matt over at lapsus calumni (who recently changed his blog layout/theme while I wasn’t looking). Actually, go check out his contest because not only is it cool (stock a dungeon) but it is to help support Christian in his awesome zine “Loviatar” and the prize is a subscription to said zine.
So now I’m trying to figure out what to use for my half-million-hits contest. Do I draw a new mini-map and have you guys stock it for prizes (three prizes – Cool Dice & Dice Bag; Cool Dice; Less-Cool-But-Still-Pretty-Damn-Cool Dice), or do I do something else?

You know, I get more hits than any other time when you link to my blog. Any chance you could do that every day? Work me in there some how. 🙂 Congrats on .5 million, that is a HUGE number!
Hey, saw do whatever you want with your contest, I guarantee you there is no way mine will outshine yours. Plus ours might reach different audiences, yours might attract dice lovers while mine might get the print zine lovers (admittedly those probably cross over more than not).
Course, a new map by you is always a good thing!
Heh. The “500,000 hits point” is funny. That’s a lot of hits points.
