For those who might be interested, I'll be running the second season of the D&D Lair Assault program at Armored Gopher on the second Saturday evenings of December and January. (We've got another session scheduled for the second Saturday of February, but I'll need somebody else to run it, as my wife is leaving town the next AM.)
For this season, create an 8th-level character, using any WotC-published materials. You get one magic item each of 7th, 8th, and 9th levels, only one of which can be a rare item. You also get 2600 gp to spend on other mundane or magic items, including up to 2 consumables of your level or lower. If you've bought Fortune Cards, they're legal.
The encounters in the Lair Assault program are intentionally difficult, so bring your A-game!
A note: In catching up on front page stuff, it's just clicked with me that the December event is the same night as the Geiken family fundraiser. For the December 10 event only, I'll let leftover raffle tickets get swapped in at the rate of 2 tickets = +1 to any d20 roll. 5 tickets to maximize the result of any other die (NOT a d20).
