Meadowbrook Needs You! — Win Dice!

No Gravatar

contest-winnerBack in June, I created a town called “Meadowbrook”. This month, I’m sponsoring a contest based on that town. All you have to do is create a NPC — an inhabitant of Meadowbrook — using the information given in this blog. The characters I like best will become part of the “official” Meadowbrook setting. In exchange, every entry you make gives you a chance to win a set of green Crystal Caste Dice from RPG Shop.  The winner will be chosen at random from among all the entries, so even if I don’t use your character, you still have a chance to win.

How to Enter

Leave a comment below detailing your NPC. Meadowbrook is a system-generic setting, that is, it’s designed to be used with any fantasy game system. Your character description should be equally system-generic, though you can include stats for your favorite game system(s) at the bottom of the description, if you wish.

The contest will run until 31 October 2009. A winner will be chosen at random on 01 November and will be announced on this blog on 02 November, 2009. You can enter as many times as you wish, each time with a different NPC.

NPC Creation Rules

  • You may use any of the existing NPCs as part of your character’s background, but you may not alter them.
  • You may use or add to any or all of the existing locations and other information, but must use the existing material as written. You may not change any of the information provided.
  • Character portraits are welcome, but not required. To use a portrait, upload the picture to your own site, then link to it in your entry.
  • I reserve the right to “tweak” NPCs to better fit the setting before placing them in the Meadowbrook information.
  • By entering your NPC, you retain the copyright on your material, but you agree to allow me use of the character. Full credit will be given to you whenever the character is included in Meadowbrook material.

Meadowbrook Posts

Here’s a list of all the Meadowbrook posts:

That’s all of the official stuff. Please feel free to post any questions you may have in the comments below, or you can email me at jade(at)rpggm(dot)com. I’m looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

  3. Saldorian, the pretzel seller

    Saldorian is not a local to Meadowbrook and he is evasive about his origins beyond “to the South.” He is a tall and well built with curly black hair and an impressive mustache of which he is inordinately proud. He dresses in brightly colored, often clashing, clothes with well worn boots. Saldorian has a thick accent and is always gesturing and smiling as he talks.

    Saldorian has a small push cart from which he sells pretzels and other works of bread art in the market place. He has an agreement with the Baker’s Guild, while he is not a member, he pays them a tenth of the money he brings in and they let him operate without trouble.

    Saldorian is a great storyteller and has an amazing knack of getting information out of people. He has a profitable sideline in rumormongering. What he does with the money is unknown as he lives extremely frugally.
