Let's Make This Easy

I have produced a Birthday Mathom every year, starting in 2013.  I've been thinking about my birthday in 2018, which will mark the 6th year of Mathom-giving. Each year, I've put together a pdf of odds and ends that I thought people might use, including a full patron, adventures, monsters converted from other games or Appendix N sources, and so on.

The requirements for receiving the Mathom have never been that onerous, but response has been rather lackluster in the past few years. Perhaps I haven't given enough time to respond? Perhaps asking for even a short review, of any DCC product, is too much? Perhaps 10-15 pages it too small to make it worthwhile?

Okay, then. This year is the 53-page Mathom.

Did I say 53 pages? Yes, I did. Or, at least, that is my target, and I mean to reach it.

What do you need to do to get it? Follow these three steps:

(1) REVIEW a DCC product. Any product. The review must be at least 53 words long, and must be posted to a blog, on rpg now, on G+, or wherever you like that you can supply a link to, between now and August 4th, 2018. 

EDIT: Yes! MCC counts!

(2) COMMENT on this post, including a LINK to your review.

(3) EMAIL me at ravencrowking at hotmail dot com with the address you want the Mathom sent to.

Here's the kicker: If only ONE person responds, I will still do 53 pages. However, if fewer than 53 people respond, then I am retiring the Birthday Mathom to the dustbin of history. At least I will have gone out with a bang.

(And you can probably guess how old I will be this year by now.)

RELATED: If you are going to Gary Con, I will have a Raven Crowking Presents Gary Con 2018 Special which I will be giving out while supplies last. All you have to do is find me while I still have some left!

  4. While this doesn't count (as it is not a DCC product, just a review on how to plunder the book FOR DCC) I thought you might still find it of interest while I select something else to review. ;)

    Thanks for giving me something to write about.

  8. MCC #2 A Fallen Star for All
    Posted the week of Gary Con and I sorta forgot for a bit...

    1. I know that I don't have to remind you about the second step. I will tell you why I include it, though.

      I have a folder in my Hotmail for Mathoms, by year, and when the Mathom is done I use the emails (which I move there upon receipt) to send out the Mathoms. Literally, that email is what reminds me who to send what.
