And so it begins. . .

Welcome to another week of the Saving Throw and the beginning of the second hall of fame contest. I have provided the first entry for this week based on an adventure in the roleplaying realm I've been creating for some time. Be sure to make your guesses before Monday night to start accumulating points as early as possible. Also, please send in your own entries for even more points.

Also, the Master of the Lands prestige class added last week had an error that has been corrected. The class was never meant to have feat prerequisites; I was using another one as a template and forgot to remove that line. I apologize for the error.

Otherwise, it's a light week with a small number of releases and a few short news stories, and as such, it's time for the column.
