D&D 4 Pre-Order Sweepstakes

I'm working on a pre-order program for the D&D 4.0 core rules gift set. The program has been designed by another store owner, but basically you put down a non-refundable deposit for the gift set and you get the chance to win the remaining D&D 4 books for the rest of 2008. Normally I wouldn't do this, but there are people coming in looking for the books now, four months early, so I know customers will want to plant their flag with a pre-order somewhere. Better with me than some online store.

The list of free books would include:
  • DM's Screen
  • Magic Item Compendium I
  • Adventure H3: Pyramid of Shadows
  • Adventure P1: King of the Trollhaunt Warrens
  • Martial Power: D&D Rules Expansion
That's through October, and I don't think we know the schedule beyond that, thus the need to work out the details.

Classless D&D:
A quote from Mike Mearles about running D&D without classes, something possible because of how the classes and powers are balanced:

Since many of the elements of character progression are unified, you could run classless D&D by allowing players to select maneuvers and spells from any class they want, mingling the two together, or start everyone with access to all heroic abilities and grant access to divine and arcane via feats.
