I don't know if everyone is aware of this yet, but DnD News & Wizards are running a Competition.
If you tell them about your character, you could win a trip to Gen Con in the US this August!
The Eight finalists also will win a 3 Month subscription to DnD Insider, and the overall winner will then be chosen from the finalists!

How cool is that!
