We’ve got you covered with this fantastic lot of D&D books including Mythic Odysseys of Theros, and Descent Into Avernus, both featuring the alternate cover art for extra pizazz. Just imagine the places you will go and monsters you will slay once you have your hands on this prize lot, generously donated by Wizards of the Coast.

Monster whatnot

From our close, personal friends at Wizards of the Coast, this is the Dungeon Mayhem prize pack. In it is the base game, Dungeon Mayhem, as well as the expansions Battle for Baldur’s Gate and Monster Madness. In Dungeon Mayhem, you play as one of four adventurers, barbarian, rogue. paladin, or wizard, all battling it out to get the lion’s share of the loot your party just found. Each character has their own abilities and card deck to use to gain the upper hand. Battle for Baldur’s Gate adds two new adventurers, the ranger Minsc and the druid Jaheira, as well as a new battle to undertake.

In Monster Madness, things get a little twisted. Instead of playing as heroes, you and your friends now play as monsters trying to defeat the heroes from the previous games. With this, you can finally live your best Beholder life. We here at Desert Bus don’t judge.

To enter this giveaway, donate $7.99, or positive multiple integers thereof, from now until 5:40am PST for a chance to enter! As always, make sure your donor account is set up and up to date so we can scream your name into the night if you win!

We’re closing out Night Watch with our final Donation Drive, this time for these beautifully bound bundle of Dungeons and Dragons books!

The door to the captain’s cabin creaks in protest as you push it open. The abandoned ship sways and groans as you splash through the ankle deep salt water in the cabin. Most of the furnishings appear to be ruined, but your eye is drawn to a large locked chest at the foot of the bunk. The D and or Dparty rogue makes quick work of the lock and throws open the lid. Most of the contents are ruined but a set of black-bound books catches your eye. These volumes have curious titles like Player’s Handbook, Monster Manual, Dungeon Master’s Guide, and Ghosts of Saltmarsh. You can tell that they are special, rare editions of these books. You quickly shove the books in your Bag of Holding. As you turn to leave you find your way blocked by the animated skeleton of the infamous pirate Captain Red Beard! Roll for initiative.

Donate $6.55 (or multiples thereof) until 11:30pm PST for a chance to win these beautiful books!
