• PSA: Origins is Coming!


    This is a public service announcement with guitars for those of you who are going to Origins.

    The Dice Masters World Championship, as well as various competitive side events, will be taking place at Origins in Columbus, OH (Go Buckeyes!) from June 3rd-7th. That's now less than two weeks away. So, just a word of advice as we rapidly approach the event: finalize your team. One thing I learned from attending U.S. Nationals was that it's important to be familiar with your team when going to an event like this. You're going to be playing Dice Masters all day long. If you qualify for the World Championship, you could be playing for multiple days. You're going to get tired, burnt out, and not always make the best decisions. The more familiar you are with your team, the more your decisions become instinct.

    You should have your team finalized soon, so you can start practicing, testing, and making sure you know what decisions to make in given situations. The more you figure out now, the less you have to figure out on the fly. That could be the difference between qualifying for Worlds, and sitting on the sideline watching everyone else play. Good luck!

      Remember, while you're there keep an eye out for your fellow TRP fans and staff. I hear @Randy will be enjoying a new born baby, but maybe the wife and inevitable swarm of "visitors" will buy him an afternoon off to come scope out the scene for us.

      I think another key thing to remember is: If you tested your team a lot, be comfortable with it, and don't let short-term bad luck get you down. You may be tempted to make a quick change, but just remember what you worked on.

      I look forward to placing some names and faces together as well! I feel like I should have my avatar on my name badge perhaps. ..

      I live in Columbus and will be attending Origins for the first time! I know some of you have reached out to me for a meetup, but we should try and get as many TRP together as we can. Anyone have ideas on to go about arranging a massive TRP meetup? I'm guessing multiple days and times would be best.
