The Blogging from A to Z Challenge – Dungeon’s Master Round-up

by Ameron (Derek Myers) on May 1, 2013

The 2013 Blogging from A to Z Challenge is over and we made it! We managed to get an article out every day in April (excluding Sundays) that began with a different letter of the alphabet. It was a lot of work (more than I expected), but in the end we did it.

Now that it’s over I wanted to provide a list of all the articles in one place. We managed to produce a lot of great articles in April and I wouldn’t want any of our readers to miss out. Below I’ve provided links to all 26 articles listed alphabetically from A to Z.

I would like to thank Wimwick (Neil Ellis) and Alton (Marc Talbot) for both contributing to Dungeon’s Master during the A to Z Challenge. I don’t think I could have got all the articles out on time without your help. Thanks, guys.

I’m also particularly proud that in addition to getting the 26 A to Z posts up, we also provided our usual weekly D&D Encounters field reports. All told, we published more articles in April than we did in January, February, and March combined. Needles to say I’m exhausted. But I’m already looking forward to doing it again next year.

Before we get into the Dungeon’s Master round up I wanted to give a shout out to a few of other great gaming blogs that participated in the A to Z Challenge.

You did great.

@Ocampo
Thanks. It was a lot of work, but very rewarding.

The “V” article on Venger was one I’ve wanted to do for a long time but never got around to it. The A to Z Challenge gave me the kick in the pants I needed to finally get it written.

There were some great game blogs this year. No as many as last year, but still a great selection!

Congrats on finishing the Challenge.

Congratulations on a job well done. You met the Challenge and actually put some thought into it.
