The time has come!!

side note: It might be wise to construct an announcement banner, I recall that was a common gripe from folk about Outplay: they had no clue it was going on.

I agree, and this is planned for sometime around next weekend probably. That way it functions both as an announcement for those who missed things were going on, and as a reminder for those who saw the initial announcement but pushed it to the back of their minds due to the two week deadline

Yep, you post your entry in this announcement thread. Just make sure you follow the rules mentioned there (e.g. no edits, no second posts) and you're good.

Unsure if I'll have time to complete so I might not run this year. But then again, I might just say hell with it and try anyway.

Having it pointed out that I'm a my take away from the judgements last year sloppy DM last year may have hurt but it's helped me be a better DM...I think.

If I do enter, it will be a Shadowrun 5e game

My better judgement tells me that competing might be foolhardy.

But my better judgement is a spoilsport. Seriously considering it.

I am of the general opinion that Iron DM is much less of a time suck than Outplay. It's a great experience, and easy to get feedback on your work.

I fully agree with this. Outplay is a monster of a time sink, and always seems like so much more pressure... One of these years, I'll take on that competition again, though!

GodRosen throws his hat into the ring. The third one to step up to the challenge... He looks up and sees sitting in the lead chair, with 3 Iron DM badges pinned to his shirt... Inem... a contestant of previous years... Years when GodRosen was a judge... Oh the criticism he put Inem though... and now he sits there... GodRosen whispers to himself "oh god... what have I just gotten myself into" Just as he mumbles that one may have seen a grin from Inem in a sort of "We meet again" response to Rosen.

Hey Inem... Errm... No hard feelings from previous years right? lol. Hey all.

I think I'll give it a shot, and try to raise my GM cred around these parts.

Spoony throws his pants into the ring.

Pretty sure I did that right...

Hi folks, a little announcement from organizer side: Some of you might have noticed that we had adjusted the name of the competition this year to be more inclusive. To me, the terms DM and GM are interchangeable no matter what system you are using, but I know not everyone sees it that way, and the change was aimed to make use of the broader term so everyone would feel welcome in our competition (even if they were of course already welcome under the previous name). However, we ran into a little snag of the new name we chose being trademarked, which was pointed out to us, so we cannot use that. Which is why you've seen everything revert back to the previous name. Since that name change had been under consideration for a while (and we still missed a very key point), the new new name, which is to say the old name of Iron DM is likely going to stick around for this year, so as not to make a rushed name change. My current plan is to attempt to revisit the name topic for the 2021 competition and see if we can come up with something that meets the goal behind this year's initial change while still sounding cool.

My apologies to everyone who liked the new name!
