This year, the DDM Guild will be putting on more events than ever at GenCon. Come join us for some of the fun! If you aren’t sure which events to attend, a full description is available here to help you pick and choose which events are right for you.
Here is the list of locations that will be holding qualifying tournaments that earn the winners byes for both the European and North American Championships. Remember that either continental championship could be the world championship – it all depends on which tournament has more entrants. The largest tournament crowns the winner.
DDM Guild today anounces the release of a new, orthogonal set of miniatures that will be overseen by the DDM Guild.
Head of Organized Play, D.Garry Stupack, explains this release: “We are trying to reach a new demographic. We want to involve families with children in the game. We’ve softened the figures somewhat.”
So, this was supposed to go up 3 months ago. And then…lots of stuff happened that occupied my attention. However, I finally had enough time to complete it, and its done! Anyway, for your reading pleasure, may I present a Competitive Toolkit.
Long awaited, much anticipated, here is Orcus! The Orcus scenario pits a seasoned group of adventurers against the Prince of the Undead, in one of his lairs. But beware, for recent events have left Orcus in a greatly empowered state. (perhaps a recent encounter with the Raven Queen?)
Whether you play the role of Orcus, revelling in your role as a merciless titan, or take on the role of the underdog Heroes out to stop him, the scenario is dynamic and has a high replay factor. Enjoy!

When the Gen Con Indy events go live, you will see a full slate of DDM events sponsored by your friendly DDM Guild. More than last year, you ask?
Check! Championships run straight through on one day? Check! (some of the top 8 matches may be sunday morning) And speaking of the Championships, if it is an open event, why are you having qualifiers? How will qualification for what has traditionally been the biggest constructed DDM event of the year work?
Here we present Player’s Handbook Heroes-Origins, a retrostat of the post-original edition heroes for use in your ‘1.0’ games. While I certainly had a major hand in these designs, credit goes to two crusaders, Matt Kempe and Peter Scott, for keeping the ‘1.0 projects’ going forward. I hope that all of you are happy with the general 1.0 feel of these dedicated 2.0 pieces.
The new floor rules for 2011 are ready, and as always apply to both the revised edition and for those of you playing the original edition. The big changes for most people will include the much anticipated ban of the Solamith, and the formalization of the return to active play of the Eternal Blade, Witchknife and Delver Sergeant. You may notice that the Heroscape wave 13 figures are listed as legal.
