Author D&D 2 -- This Time With You!

When I heard about the epic "author D&D" session that my friends Myke and Peat were taking part in last year, I begged them to add a charity element to it. The original gathering was just a fun get together for a few professionals who happened to like one another, like role-playing, and be at the same convention, so coordinating a formal fundraising aspect wasn't in the dice. But now that we all know the first game was a delight -- AND a fun attention getter for the world builders who played -- their second game is going to be for fun AND funds! And this time YOU can join them:

Join 8 Fantasy & Science Ficiton authors for a classic game of Dungeons & Dragons at Detroit's very own Immortal ConFusion this January
Join eight other fantasy authors in a classic game of D&D at Immortal ConFusion this coming January! The players include some of the best in the fantasy world: Pat Rothfuss, Peter V. Brett, Diana Rowland, Jim C. Hines, Mary Robinette Kowal and Sam Sykes. Authors Myke Cole and Saladin Ahmed will DM the game.

Immortal ConFusion will be held at the Doubletree Hotel Detroit/Dearborn‎ located at 5801 Southfield Road, Detroit, MI 48228. The convention will run from January 18-20, 2013 with the game taking place on the 19th from 10am until 1pm. Books, dice and other supplies will be provided, but you are also welcome to bring your own. The game will be filmed and edited for release on YouTube.

This is a great opportunity for folks attending the convention or people who live in the Detroit area as the convention is unable to cover travel and hotel accommodations. This auction is only for admission to the game--you'll need to provide your own travel and accommodations.

Monies raised go to the Worldbuilders charity. Bid on your chance to play with the modern masters of fantasy here.
