Win Free Manga From the King of RPGs

Seriously, I dare any of you to be as cool as this guy.


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!)

If I was any good at roleplay I would enter, but  sadly I am not.

Just a word of warning to those who may have wanted to participate in this contest, like myself, it is only open to Americans. So ya, another cool contest a lot of people cant participate in.

@crusader8463: Speaking as someone who just glanced over the bill from the post office for shipping out a big batch of prizes to Sweden, Scotland, and Turkey, I can understand the inclination, even if it is a pain for users @_@
