The 2016 Iron DM is...
Dec 01, 2016 - 9:37 PM - by hvg3akaek

At last, the echoes from the final battle have died down, the judges have deemed it safe to come out, and now have completed their decrees. Once again, both contestants have fought and performed admirably, but there can be only one winner, only one Iron DM for 2016...
Post of the Month Winner Announced!

Post of the Month Winner Announced!

October was short on entries but long on quality for the Post of the Month competition.

Now, with no further delay: the Post of the Month winner for October 2016 is ... Stormhammer!

You can read the winning entry here. Please congratulate Stormhammer for this exemplary work.

Communing with the dead is a cornerstone of horror games, and in this post Stormhammer paints a visceral picture of how dangerous that can in a Cthulhu-based game - even when the dead mean no harm. With this description, Stormhammer elevated speaking with dead above the dry mechanics of rolls made and spells cast and brings it ... well, to life might be the wrong phrase ... gives it an immediacy and weight that reflect not only the state of the PCs, but cast a dangerous light on the road they still have to walk.

The other nominations for October 2016 can be read here. Each is an exceptional entry and well worth the read.

The PotM contest for November 2016 is going on now. Be sure to nominate your favorite posts from the month of October.
Iron DM 2016 - Grand Finale!
Nov 15, 2016 - 4:17 AM - by hvg3akaek

Many battles have now passed, and many contestants have fallen. Colours have mixed, been absorbed, and painted over: but now, one colour shines forth above all the others. Yes, there are but two contestants that remain: but they stand united in their origin, for both started from the YELLOW corner, and neither have wavered along their journey!

Together, they faced off against the Draconic Challenger, and dodged everything the Electric Challenger could throw against them. There, their paths to victory split, but neither stumbled. Rolzup was forced to face the reddened Fairy Challenger, before barely surviving the Ghostly green. Meanwhile, Inem outgrew the green Fiery Challenger, and outlived the blue Psychic Challenger.

Now, the pair turn to each other, again, but this time, there will be only one survivor! Will it be the Challenger of Ice, who has eaten his competition, who has claimed his own crown, and survived the stampede? Or will it be the Challenger of Grass, who has not ceased growing, but continues to sprout more roots - who has effectively become immortal? With... [Read More]

Something about moving into the fall always stiffens the competition for the Post of the Month.

Now, with no further delay: the Post of the Month winner for September 2016 is ... Rolzup!

You can read the winning entry here. Please congratulate Rolzup for this exemplary work.

Joining an existing game can be hard. Joining a game with this kind of splash, a post destined to be a memorable event long after the game has run its course, is a true achievement. What's more, Rolzup has written the post to not only bring in a new character, but also manages to strengthen and deepen and realize the game world. It's nothing earth-shattering, just enough little details to make everything feel that much more real. It's a remarkable piece of work.

The other nominations for September 2016 can be read here. Each is an exceptional entry and well worth the read.

The PotM contest for October 2016 is almost over. Be sure to nominate your favorite posts from the month of October.
