I’m gonna admit up front, I don’t get D and D. So while I’m sharing this because I’m part of it, it’s going to be pretty much cut and paste from the game’s site because I don’t quite get it 🙂 (I know, bad geek.)
It starts at 4 pm PST and it’s a D and D game that’s played online with a dungeon master and dice and everything.
So you set it up like they say in the rules page, there’s links and stuff you do to get artifacts to help you, and then you go on your quest. You can level up to get bigger prizes, but there’s also random prizes you can get as you go. And what are those? Books! You get free books! And yes, I’m putting this up because I donated a few of my novellas 🙂
So here’s what they have on their page about the game:
“You’re properly equipped and outfitted. Time to adventure! The DM will will provide you an encounter with three choices to follow.
Choose wisely! Some choices lead to immediate death, some to immediate success. Most will rely on the DM rolling a d20. If you pass, you move on (sometimes with new treasure) to face increasingly difficult challenges. If you fail… you die.
Like any good RPG, Tombs and Terrors provides second chances. If you die, you can choose to permanently loose one of your three item slots (and an associated item) to repeat your level. Check the artifacts to find an even more powerful way to keep playing!
Level up to win the following “achievement unlocked” prizes!
Reach Level 5 – Win an ebook copy of The Red King, by Nick Cole (first 25)
Reach Level 7 – Win an ebook copy of The End of the World as we Knew it, by Nick Cole (first 25)
Reach Level 8 – Win a 2 month subscription to the Sci Phi Journal – A Journal About Science Fiction & Philosophy (first 20)

Sounds pretty good, right? There’s more! Throughout the game, right from the first level, you can discover random items depending on your choices and how well the dice bounces. In addition to in-game buffs, you also can find some great reads in the dungeon (probably a sleepy goblin left them lying around):
