Mark Tedin

While growing up in the sublime locale of Sitka, Alaska, Mark had dreams of flying saucers and epic landscapes, rarely putting his pencil down as a result. This was not cured by his formal art training at Gonzaga University in Spokane nor his getting a Master’s degree in studio painting at Washington University in St. Louis. In fact it probably cemented it. Not willing to live in any town that didn’t also start with an “S”, Mark heard the call from a friend to do some work for a Seattle role-playing game company in 1992. This involved drawing and painting an endless array of fanciful creatures, characters, and designs for Wizards of the Coast, both as a freelance illustrator and sometimes on staff as conceptual designer. Mark also taught art courses part-time at the Northwest College of Art and Design in Poulsbo, Wa.

These past twenty-five years it was, and still is, for him a dream come true: drawing strange creatures and environments and making a living at it.

All prizes and packs will be in English.
3Does everyone get the Grand Prix Promo?
Everyone will receive the promo card (while supplies last); usually there are enough promos for everyone. Rarely attendance is much higher than expected and there may be a shortage which is why we indicate (while supplies last). Pre-register early so we can plan enough ahead of time. Comfort Package owners are guaranteed to get the promo card.
4What is the maximum capacity for players at the Grand Prix?
Currently, the maximum capacity is for 1500 players. We will keep everyone updated on how preregistrations are doing so everybody can plan ahead.
5If there are too many players, will I not get to play in the main event?
If you are preregistered you are guaranteed a spot in the main event.
6I'm looking at registering for GP Vancouver, I just wanted to know if I register online if I have to be there on Friday February 17th to check in as well
Check in on Friday is not required, the promo card will be given to everybody at the player meeting at the beginning of the tournament (while quantities last) on Saturday morning. On site on Friday, there will be a list of the preregistered players as of Thursday night. You will be able to check if the information and the number of byes are correct. This very recommended step will help us resolve any issues before they can happen. An updated list will be posted Saturday morning before the start of the tournament.
7How can I pay when I preregister online?
When you register online, you can either pay with Paypal,or you can pay with your credit card. We use Paypal to process credit card payments, and you do NOT need a Paypal account to pay for your registration.
8Can I register my friend using my account?
You cannot sign in twice, you need to register your friend with his name, DCI and email address but you can pay with your credit card/Paypal account.
9What is the registration deadline?
Registration deadline: online is Friday February 17th at 10h00 pm, onsite registration is available until closing. There is NO registration on Saturday morning.
10What if we pre-register and then can't go? Will there be refunds available?
Players should register to any event only when they are 100% sure to attend the event. The preregistration promotion is to give us the opportunity to plan ahead of time in terms of number of players and space. We will not be processing refunds unless something affecting a large number of individuals happens, (tsunami, airport shutdown, sand storm etc).
11How many Grand Prix Trials will there be?
Modern Grand Prix Trials are firing up as soon as 32 players sign up; they start at 10h00 am, latest is 8 p.m. In addition, there will be 4 Sealed Grand Prix Trials that will start respectively at 12 pm and 2h30 am, 5 pm, and 7h30 pm.
12What is the prize payout for the main event?
The base prize payout is over $50,000 for a Grand Prix with fewer than 3000 participants and pays down to 64th place. For more information on prizes, please visit Wizards' website.
13Are you allowed to attend a Grand Prix without registering for the main event to just spectate and see the vendors?
The event is open to the public, spectators and members of the press are welcomed!
14If I have byes do I need to be present for the player meeting?
Because the Sleep-In Special is included with your registration, you do not have to attend the player meeting at 9am. If you have byes, you can use our online decklist submission provided by email. All decklists must be received by 9h am on Saturday, February 18th.
15How will I know how many byes I got?
Byes are determined based on Planeswalker points. For more information on byes, please visit Wizard's website.

We will do our best to print a player list as soon as possible, you will find 1B, 2B or 3B next to your name, and the number represents how many byes you have. It's the player’s responsibility to make sure they bring a proof of the number of byes they have. A print out of your account with your name and the number of points or the results of the GPT you won.
16Will I be able to pay by credit card or debit card on-site?
To speed up the process, we will be taking only cash payments on site. If you want to register using a credit card, please preregister online. Some of the vendors on site may accept credit or debit cards payments.
17Do you accept US$ on-site?
Yes we do, the rate will be announced on site.
18What time do the side events start?
All side events are listed here. Registration for the side events start one (1) hour before the start time and end 10 minutes before.

  • Advertising without prior written permission from Game Keeper event staff.
  • Buying, selling, or soliciting to buy or sell cards to anyone except Authorized Dealers.
