Each character on your adventurer roster that's been upgraded to Adventurers Guild status may attempt to win an Adventurer Prize Pack.
Only one attempt per character is allowed. Attempts past the first attempt will yield the same result as the previous attempt.
The outcome of all attempts in this contest are completely random.
Character statistics, equipment, skills, and powers will have no effect on the random number that is chosen.
Character gender and/or alignment may or may not have a noticeable effect on the random number that is chosen.
