Dawning Star VIP Game To Benefit Shriners Hospitals for Children
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- DAWNING STAR VIP GAME TO BENEFIT SHRINERS HOSPITALS FOR CHILDREN -- Blue Devil Games Hosts Special Gen Con Event with Guest of Honor JD Wiker -- May 18, 2007 - PLANTATION, FL: Blue Devil Games is proud to announce a truly unique event at this year’s Gen Con: a once-in-a-lifetime role-playing game and a way to help some truly needy children, all in one fun-filled evening. The “Dawning Star VIP Game” will be held on Friday, August 17th from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM at the Alcatraz Brewing Company located at the Circle Centre Mall, just steps from the Indianapolis Convention Center.
The “Dawning Star VIP Game” finds seven lucky participants guiding their characters through a gauntlet of near-certain death in “Dawn of War” a prelude to next year’s thrilling Dawning Star release: Shadow War. Lead Dawning Star designer Lee Hammock (HALO graphic novel, Fallen Earth MMORPG) will write and GM the adventure—the only game he will GM at Gen Con this year. One of the characters will be helmed by our special VIP guest of honor, the lead designer of d20 Future, none other than JD Wiker (d20 Menace Manual, Star Wars Role-Playing Game).
In addition to a great evening of gaming, the event promises a host of other goodies. Attendees will dine on fine food and drink absolutely free, including the restaurant’s mouth-watering burgers, pizzas, steaks, and seafood entrees. Blue Devil Games will give away unbelievable prizes, including a unique game publication only available to attendees—never to be published again. Players will create their own characters in the time leading up to Gen Con. Players will receive a custom portrait of their characters to take home, and each character will appear in an upcoming Dawning Star publication with an appropriate development credit and a free contributor copy.
Best of all, 100% of all proceeds from the event go to help the Shriners Hospitals for Children. Shriners Hospitals for Children is a network of 22 pediatric hospitals in the U.S., Canada and Mexico providing specialized care for orthopaedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries, and cleft lip and palate. For more than 85 years, Shriners Hospitals have provided invaluable medical services at no charge to the family. Eligibility for care is not based on financial need or relationship to a Shriner. You can learn more about Shriners Hospitals by visiting their website: www.shrinershq.org.
Participation in the game itself is by special invitation only, but you can attend, eat some great food, and watch all the festivities by purchasing one of only ten spectator's invitations. An announcement about these limited invitations will be made soon. For more information about the event, visit our website: www.dawningstar.com/VIPGame.
