First of two events that I was going down to GenCon to do. D&D Championship is a fast-paced, grueling 4 hour, 5 encounters...if you make it that far. This year the Championship was an Epic level tourney; 22nd level to be exact. We played 5 encounters of 45 minutes each. This was a timed event and if you failed any of the encounters, your chances of being eliminated from the tourney was very likely.
Out of the forty or so teams that entered this competition, we made it down to the last 6, to eventually win 3rd place overall in the tourney due to two rookie mistakes we made at the table. Great time was had by all. I can't wait to see what they throw at us next year. Our team came out of there with some pretty good swag. Worth missing 4 seminars for it.
