Hey Inem... Errm... No hard feelings from previous years right? lol. Hey all.
Nope. No hard feelings. None at all. And if your round zero entry accidentally gets lost, or if you make it to round one but find yourself in a match with insane opponents...well that's all just unlucky coincidences

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!
Sorry to hear that Inem. GM or DM doesn't matter to me. <shrug>

I use DM and GM interchangeably as well. Additionally... I even created my own terminology for a replacement of DM/GM (see my signature)

And I mean that's what we pretty much are anyways. We even control the in world deities if that alone doesn't make us a god (or G.O.D.) then IDK what to tell you. Lol

Yeah, let's call ourselves IronGODs-- I'm pretty sure that's not also something that could be trademarked in our space.

Not that we have any say in it for this year. But I'd be pretty happy with something like "Mithril GM" or "Adamantite GM". Maybe that further pegs the competition as DnD/Fantasy, which is something the name change is trying to avoid. But I think that those metals appear in a lot of scifi scenarios, too. Whatever the mods want!

I was thinking if we're going to go, go all the way.

A complete change that keeps the cooking show flare

Has a top chef comparision, has no setting conotations, and what is modual building if not focused world building? Bonus points for a quick Google search not popping anything copywritten up!

It's been a little time since I went through the previous years' entrants, but the impression I got was that while there's no restriction on which system to use as a basis, it's considered an uphill battle and maybe even a handicap if I lean into anything outside the D&D/PF family, as the judges may not have the best frame of reference for judging it mechanically. And I can't provide any extra notation on top of the adventure detail to aid in that guidance, especially if it needs links. Would that be accurate?

I think the only inaccurate part about that is that you CAN provide additional detail to help judges understand the system-- but it's at the cost of part of your wordcount, a precious resource.

Of course, this is a player perspective, not a judge perspective. I would say, though, that last year people definitely included extra information that helped explain the mechanics of the system, in a few entries. They don't appear to have been penalized for it.

Fair - I'm probably getting 'additional detail' conflated with 'external information'.
