The contest was a big hit and a lot of fun to host, but we haven't quite finished putting together the final winning entries. So, this year, I will not be hosting a contest. When the winning pieces are completed and released for download, I might revisit hosting a contest like this, but for the time being, I'll honor Gary in another way.
So how about a collection of all the entries that didn't win?
+John Hazen, who took second place in the contest, was kind enough to compile all of the non-winning entries into one PDF. As you'll see from the quality of these adventures, selecting a winner was really difficult (hence why we ended up with two 1st place winners!), and hopefully you'll have as much fun playing these as I did reading them.
You can download the file here.
(Note: the cover John put together features a "Secret DM" image drawn by +Brian Patterson)
Many thanks again to everyone who participated: +Michael Gibbons, +Mike Miller, +Gabriel Perez Gallardi, +Patrick Henry Downs, +Andrew Shields, Andrew Schwartz and +Doug Marrs, +Stefanos Patelis, +Mark Chance, and +William Cohen!
And of course, the 1st place winners +Erik Jensen and +Jason Paul McCartan, as well as the judges and participants in creating content for the winners.
I look forward to sharing the finished winning adventures in the near future!
Happy birthday, Gary!
