- Next week, the competition begins! Starting April 8th, visit the Tournament, buff your monsters (one buff per monster, per week), and get the results the following Friday.
- Winning creatures advance based on the total buffs a creature receives, “My Picks” nominations, and a good ol’ fashioned d20 die roll from the D&D game designers.
- When four monsters are left standing, our own Chris Perkins will choose one of them to be featured in the Season 3 D&D Encounters adventure!
- After 6 weeks of buffing, we’ll announce the ultimate tournament winner!
