#famousDM Contest Winner: The DMG2 Goes To…

I had a BLAST reading all of your #famousDMs this week.  But unlike Phil the ChattyDM who had tons of prizes and judged his #aboutmyPC entries on quality, I’m more of a dice rollin’ girl myself (and I only had one prize!).

In this post you’ll find:

  • The winner (you?)
  • My favorite entries from the week (you? You won’t win a prize – sorry! – but maybe you’ll gain some new Twitter followers who like the way you think!)

Here we go…

The Winner

Mateodefuego is our winner!!
