    I’m going to talk to the well known game designer Monte Cook .  Now if you don’t know who Monte Cook is then you must be living under a rock.  Monte Cook has a long history with game designing have worked on such titles as Rolemaster, Planescape, and author of many D&D 3rd edition books, of which include the Dungeon Master’s Guide.  I would be neglected in my duties if I did not mention Ptolus an ambitious project for any designer.

    Mr. Cook left Wizards of the Coast in 2001 and formed Malhavoc Press.  I’m not going to rehash what many already know.  The Monte Who? will give you a nice list of his accomplishments and awards.  What I want to know is what is Monte Cook up to now?  Well I was pleasantly surprised when I found out exactly what he has partaken in.

    Dungeon A Day is a subscription based website that will offer members a new dungeon encounter every weekday, Dungeon Maps, handouts, Podcasts, Blogs, Forums, pictures, and a plethora of additions.  Check out “How Does The Site Work” for the full run down on the site.

    I’m not here to review Dungeon A Day, I’m here to talk with the Dungeon Master who dreamed her up.  Mr. Monte Cook.

    On Christmas eve, 2006 our family ran headlong into dark waters. My sister’s 8 year old son Chase Ripper was rushed to the hospital and shortly thereafter diagnosed with ALL Leukemia. Chase is now undergoing a second round of treatment to fend off lingering cancer cells.

    Coming to my families aid, the crew here at WorldWorksGames pulled together in order to create a terrain set dedicated to Chase Ripper and family. The proceeds of which will go directly into Chase’s trust fund, to help offset some of the costs associated with 24/7 care over a period of many months. Every little bit helps in this fight and we won’t stop diverting money from this set until the crisis is over. Once that happens we’ll feed remaining sums into another cancer charity.
