Online League: Spring Grand Champion

The DDM Guild's Online League began in February 2009. The league has been a great way to promote some friendly, international, inter-Chapter play. Our Winter 2009 season was brief, but the Spring 2009 season ran a full twelve weeks and produced our first Grand Champion: Eugene 'deadseashoals' Hwang of Seattle, Washington!

Player's Handbook Heroes, Series 2: Preview 3

After last week's scary jaunt in the wilderness, and at the risk of sounding a bit like a Drow, might I suggest we retire to the safer and more secure caverns of the Underdark?

Here, we will meet three different heroes that will only play nicely together when found in this sunless realm. However, they are a true bargain as a squad, weighing in at under 80 points. Nonetheless, outside the Underdark, they only see each other over crossed swords (or spears, as the case may be).

In particular, the Tiefling Spearfighter is a disciplined veteran of both Borderlands and Underdark warbands.

2009 Constructed Championship Fact Sheet

Well, it's certainly been an event-filled year here at the DDM Guild. Gen Con Indianapolis will be the first fully Guild-hosted championship event, and we are looking forward to it. It will be Grand Prix style, open to all, but with qualified players and highly ranked players getting byes through to Stage II.

Player's Handbook Heroes, Series 2: Preview 2

This week's preview takes us on a jaunt into the scary wilderness, where we find three different takes on the Wild hero. Player's Handbook Heroes, Series 2 gives Wild a shot in the arm -- perhaps enough that we'll see many green warbands at GenCon in six weeks or so. Perhaps even one or two of the creatures previewed today will make the critical cut.

We'll start with the least wild of the bunch, the Gnome Sneak. While normally a Fey child of the wild, you'll sometimes see him creeping into the civilized lands -- and not just to steal from them!

Eternal Blade Recall

It has become a tradition, just prior to GenCon, for the designers and the Organized Play folks to sit down and examine the state of the game. Of course, given the current state of the Guild, this is a metaphoric sit down, as we are scattered across the globe, but it follows the pattern set down by our predecessors at Wizards. Our quest lies in those figures that are causing problems for the Guild membership at large.

Player's Handbook Heroes, Series 2: Preview 1

In just under a month, Player's Handbook Heroes, Series 2 boosters will be gracing the shelves of your Friendly Local Game Store -- and that means 18 new figures for your skirmish game.

Scenario DW1: The Frost Giant's Picket

The Drow Wars continue, or at least a small chapter in them. This week's scenario, the Frost Giant's Picket, utilizes the popular Arena format and pits frost giant against dwarf in the snowy realms of the Windswept Precipice. Slog along with dwarves as they attempt to light a signal fire, or play the ambushers to test your entrapment skills. The grognards among you will see the connection between the drow and their frost giant allies, even if the Eberron-born think they are the ones that should be fighting.

Legendary Evils Pre-release

With generous support from Wizards of the Coast, the DDM Guild is pleased to announce that a Monster Manual: Legendary Evils Pre-Release Tournament will be held at Gen Con Indianapolis on August 16, 2009.

DDM Guild Repaint: June 2009
