If it seems like Wizards of the Coast was just holding Worldwide D&D Game Day events to celebrate a Dungeons & Dragons book launch, you’re right — the last one was as recently as March, when Player’s Handbook 2 came out. But Monster Manual 2 hits shelves this week, so it’s time again for a free adventure at your friendly local gaming store. You can find a list of participating retailers at the game’s official Web site as well as details at the event page:
Come and face down enemies (both brand new and some old returning favorites) jumping right off the pages of the next big monster expansion for the game. While you’re at it, beat those vile beasts down with characters using options from upcoming releases. No matter if you’re new to the game or a 4th Edition veteran, we’ll have everything you need to embark on an all-new adventure!
Just for participating you’ll take home the pregenerated character sheet and a miniature of the character you played. If you DM the game, you’ll take home the adventure itself, a poster map of the encounter areas, and a pack of monster miniatures used in the adventure.
Wizards’ official site is also celebrating the occasion with an article looking back at the history of the MM2 cover boy, “the monkey-headed, tentacle-armed Prince of Demons himself — Demogorgon.” Because two-heads are better than one, right?
If you miss it, or just can’t get enough, the next Game Day event will be in September, when Dungeon Master’s Guide 2 launches.
