A DDM Guild Chapter is a local gaming community, headed by a Chapter Master, and comprised of members who play face-to-face on a regular basis and who have registered for membership with the DDM Guild. Chapter members receive all the regular benefits of DDM Guild membership and also are eligible for participation in special events, such as the DDM Guild Online League. In the future, Chapter members will enjoy organized play rewards and participation in special events.
The second issue of Unbroken, the DDM Guild Newsletter, is now available. Download the newsletter for the latest information on design, organized play, and Chapter activities! Chapter Masters and other Chapter members also may be interested in printing out the first page of the newsletter, as it was designed to be a standalone advertisement for the Guild.
The DDM Guild is a community-driven and fan-based organization. But we are forbidden us from making a profit. We rely on you, our fellow miniatures enthusiasts, to cover the costs of producing game resources. All moneys received via donation will go toward covering the expenses of printing maps and stat cards, maintaining our web server, offering prize support for organized play, etc.
How to host a qualifier at your FLGS?
There have been a lot of questions from DDM Guild members as to how qualifiers will be handled in 2009. The DDM Guild will sanction Qualifier Tournaments for the 2009 D&D Miniatures Constructed Championship, to be held at Gen Con Indianapolis. The top two to four finishers in each tournament (depending upon tournament size) will receive a bye through every game in Stage I of the Championship tournament this year.
The Battle Rules (2009) rulebook is a complete rewrite of the D&D Miniatures Game rule set, incorporating the past year of changes, clarifications, and errata and a smaller number of new changes in a single document. You can download the new rulebook here.
Megan Smith, a valued community artist and Chapter Master in Brisbane, Australia, brings us the second in her series of monthly DDM Guild Repaints. Up this month: the Drow Assassin From Demonweb.

Each month Megan Smith provides us with another great how-to article for her monthly DDM Guild Repaints. As an added enhancement for the repaints, the DDM Guild is offering Guild Logo Stamps to any interested DDM Guild Chapter Masters (contact us for more details). The Guild Logo Stamp adds that final, distinctive touch to a repaint that let's everyone know it is, indeed, something special.
The DDM Guild is please to announce the immediate release of the new D&D Miniatures Floor Rules. They offer new solutions for Dungeons and Dragons miniatures players, and should help us move the game forward. The plan from Oranized Play is to keep this document updated frequently, so that when new maps and sets are released, we can make it clear that they are legal.
