The GOLD Guide to Competitive Gaming

March 23, 2011 | David

we're so excited to announce the newest expansion to the GOLD universe:

In 2008/2009, we released the first season of GOLD, the Series. In 2009 we also released the GOLD Collectible Card Game, featuring the characters from GOLD. In early 2010 we released Season 1 of GOLD on DVD, and followed in the winter of 2010/2011 with the dramatic miniseries Night of the Zombie King.  Now, we’re proud to announce The GOLD Guide to Competitive Gaming:

The GOLD Guide to Competitive Gaming is a collection of gaming essays by roleplaying gamers from all corners of the industry, including such RPG luminaries as Keith Baker, Monte Cook and Ed Greenwood, as well as dedicated players from unexpected places, such as Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe, veteran actor/voice artist Matthew Mercer, and independent filmmaker Ben Dobyns. The book will also feature essays from some of the fictional characters that populate GOLD and Night of the Zombie King, including maverick player Richard Wright and former American team captain Jonathan Drake. It will feature a wide variety of essays about roleplaying gaming, including tips to make the most of the hobby, advice on becoming a better player/game master, thoughts on how RPG skills may contribute to other parts of a player’s life, and adventure seeds for use in a variety of games. The book will contain both humorous and thoughtful essays, which span a wide variety of genres and game types, including traditional tabletop games, LARPs, CCGs and miniature games.
