I hinted about this in last week’s Purple Parlay.

If you don’t already know, this week is Read an RPG in Public Week. Basically the point of this week is to get the hobby “out of the basement” and into the public eye. Participation is simple.  Read an RPG in public.

If you’re on the fence about reading an RPG out in the open, we’ve come up with a little idea to help persuade you.

We’re giving something away! A full set of Tremorworks’ HDL Universal Tactical Role-playing System.  This includes:

HDL Basic Rulebook
Deck of HDL Cards
Demongate High setting
Perfect Horizon setting
Lucid: Dreamscape Reality setting

That’s a good chunk of RPG goodness right there!

UPDATE:  The winner will also recieve a copy of HackMaster Basic and an Aces & Eights Player’s Guidebook from Kenzer & Company.

UPDATE 2: Fat Dragon Games will be providing a copy of the E-Z Dungeons Starter bundle to the winner!

UPDATE 3: Chaotic Shiny Productions will be providing a copy of Martial Flavor to the winner!

FINAL UPDATE: Obsidian Portal will be donating a 6 month Ascendant membership to the winner!

You might be wondering how you can enter? Easy as pie. Simply send us a picture of yourself reading an RPG in public. You can do this several ways:

  1. Post a link to the photo in the comments section of this post.
  2. Post a link to the photo in twitter, with @purplepawn in the tweet.
  3. Upload the photo on our Facebook page.

Entries must be received by March 14th, 2009. We’ll pick a winner at random, and post some of the best images here on the site.

If that wasn’t enough! We’re currently working on grabbing some more prize material, so the payout to you may be even greater!

Disclosure: I’m the cofounder of Tremorworks, LLC, and am providing the Tremorworks pack for the prize of this contest.
