You guys should be pretty familiar with Jason Thompson by now-- even if you didn't already know him as the author of Manga: The Complete Guide (and the unstumpable manga expert), he's appeared on the Squadcast and I've mentioned his upcoming D&D farce manga King of RPGs a couple of times as something I'm rather excited about.
Jason dropped me a note to let me know that he's running a new contest, and the winners will each get a set of 30 manga-- yes, 3-0, that's THIRTY --along with "some other stuff." How do you enter? By sending in your RPG character description. I know there are still a fair few of you RPers tucked away on the forums-- this one's a gimme for you!
Some of you may think: "well, the guy's an expert on manga, but how do I know I'll get 30 GOOD volumes?" The answer, my friends, is simple: Jason Thompson is one of the coolest guys I know, and he would not give you totally crappy manga. If you want proof, check it out-- how many people do YOU know who try to get random strangers in San Francisco to play D&D?
Hopefully that's enough to convince you, or at least entertain you mightily. Those of you who already have a roleplay character handy-- or are in the mood to make a new one --here are the rules for the contest, and here's a list of the prizes, so get on it!
(P.S. For those of you who aren't necessarily as big on the roleplay, Jason is also still running a manga giveaway on Suvudu-- day 95 of 365, so you've got plenty of time to get in on Even More Free Manga!)
