All Raffles Now Completed
Thanks to everyone who participated! 466 questions were asked by 172 users across the months that this contest ran. Thanks also go to those who answered all of these questions - each and every question asked has received an answer, very many of which were highly in-depth. I'd say our goal of building a knowledge base for the new system has been a rousing success.
This post will eventually be updated with various statistics about participation in the event as a whole.
As has been hinted at across many posts in Meta, 5th Edition of Dungeons & Dragons is coming out soon! To lead us into this, we've sent 3 advance copies to 3 users selected amongst those voted by your community. So let us begin by congratulating the winners - DampeS8N, Joshua Aslan Smith, and Oblivious Sage!
The naming is not just for congratulations, but also to give y'all a heads up. As we're approaching the official release, I have asked these 3 to help begin populating the site with questions about 5th edition. If there's one thing that's better than having questions on our site at the start of the launch, it's having good questions before anyone else gets their hands on it. That way, those who buy it on release, they can already find us as a place to get answers to their questions, and may already find them without needing to ask. So keep aware that these three folks have these advance copies and will be asking questions early.
Which brings us to our contest. We will be raffling out copies of the 3 core rulebooks as each one is released. It's a simple process - ask good questions that get upvoted about 5th edition, and you'll earn one chance at winning one of the books. The more you ask, the more chances you'll have. There will be 4 separate raffles.
- From the release of the starter box to the release of the Player's Handbook, users will earn a chance to win a copy of the PHB when it comes out.
- From the release of the PHB until the release of the Monster Manual, users will earn a chance to win a copy of the MM when it comes out.
- From the release of the MM until the release of the Dungeon Master's Guide, users will earn a chance to win a copy of the DMG when it comes out.
- A bonus raffle will be held for our 3 folks who are helping pre-populate our site with wonderful content. For the upvoted questions they ask leading up to the release of the starter box, they will earn chances to win a copy of the Player's Handbook as well.
I look forward to celebrating our ability to take a unique part in welcoming the new edition of D&D to the world at large. Let's start a grand new adventure here, together!
