Our GM’s Day contest  (the prize: a set of solid metal dice) has drawn over 300 entries, roughly double the number for our previous contest.
Many entries have been from longtime readers commenting for the first time, and many readers thanked us for writing Gnome Stew. We love writing about GMing, and hearing from gamers who find our advice, ideas, and rambling useful in their games is the main reason that we keep doing it.
To everyone who reads the Stew: Thank you! It’s clichéd, but we’re here doing this because you’re here reading our work — and using it in your games. You rock.
