After five rounds of competition and weeks of hard work Mike Welham has won Paizo‘s annual RPG Superstar competition. Congratulations to him !

   This means, that his  adventure, Doom Comes to Dustpawn, was chosen by the gamer community to be produced as a full Pathfinder adventure. Most likely it will be released by Paizo in 2013 January.

   Mike Welham was already an amateur game designer on his own, and I’m sure that his experience helped him with his designs. While I think his last turn submission (the adventure proposal itself) was weak (article here), his earlier work like his fourth round encounter was much more promising.

   So for now I wish great success for his future work as a game designer, and I’m sure that his designs will improve further with the help of the Paizo staff.

If you would like to see Mike Welham‘s submissions for the five rounds you may take a look here.

Also, congratulations to the other great contestants who reached to the Top 4 : Steve Miller, James Olchak, and Tom Phillips. I’m pretty sure that this is not the last time we hear of them.

RPG Superstar will return in 2013, with new challenges and brand new ideas.
