Update: 2009 Constructed Qualifiers

Here we are, about to embark on another qualifiers season. The excitement is palpable.

Will players stay with old favorites, or do any of these new designs really have potential? We'll find out over the next few weeks. Players will be competing for positions at the GenCon championships, but most locations are making additional prizes available. These include Guild supplied maps and even some spectacular repaints, like these from the South Bend tournament this weekend.

DDM Guild Promo Cards

On May 23rd, gamers the world over will celebrate Worldwide D&D Game Day. Our very talented Guild artist, Joel Broveleit (demetri0us), has collaborated with Dutch Chapter Master David Balder (thekk) to bring us these exquisite DDM Guild Promo cards. The cards look great in color or black-and-white and can be printed and cut inexpensively at any copy store. The cards are a great way to get the word out about our beloved game.

Update: DDM Guild Donation Premiums

Since we first announced the availability of premium gifts for donors, the DDM Guild has received a very enthusiastic response from the community. We've received support from hundreds of players the world over. Here's a quick update on shipping of premiums.

The majority of battle map requests have been fulfilled, and the remainder will be shipped this week. Originally, we had hoped to ship maps and cards together. However, circumstances have intervened.

Dangerous Delves Stat Cards

At long last, the release of the first monsters in the new D&D Miniatures Monster Manual packs are about to arrive! In one week, you'll have your hands on the Aboleth Slime Mage, the Cyclops Crusher, the Beholder Eye Tyrant, and 37 of their best monster buddies.

Starting with a great foundation by Wizards of the Coast's Peter Lee, the DDM Guild has created stat cards for use with the Dangerous Delves monsters for use in the D&D Miniatures skirmish game.

The stat cards will be legal for all DCI-sanctioned and Online League events starting May 19th.

Dangerous Delves, Preview 3

There are old goblins, and there are bold goblins, but there are no old, bold goblins. Both of the minis previewed today have a high enough Wisdom score to live by that mantra. Without further ado, it's Goblin time!
