Results were actually already in a table to be tallied, so after closing the polls, everything that had to be done was add the totals and sort. So the results are in, you can find the full list of people who made it here(as well as the 'Hopefuls', who should be getting ready to send out their assassins in order to make one of the main competitors for their match unavailable just about now ). As mentioned, we won't release a full list of results, but the top 3 entries were:

1.) SAS, by bananabadger (17 votes)
2.) Bugbears in Business, by lostcheerio (13 votes)
3.) Fairytale Station, by Homerstarbaby (11 votes)

Congratulations to everyone that made it!

If you only made it as a hopeful, or didn't make it at all, don't be discouraged. Everyone's tastes differ, so aside from a few exceptions that get a bunch of votes, votes tend to spread around, and as a result the entries around the cutoff are generally very close together. So just know, you might have just gotten unlucky this year and missed out by only a single vote. Next year might be different, and you should try again (or, if you're a hopeful, you should definitely submit for round 1, because if someone doesn't submit, you have just as good of a chance of advancing as anyone else in the match).

Edit: Additionally, I will now be unsecreting the Round Zero entries, so you can and should go and give RPXP to all the ones you liked!

A hush draws over the crowd. The competitors look from one to the other. Which of them will move to the next round and which of them will have to 'pack their knives and go'*

*Yeah, yeah that's Top Chef but Iron Chef didn't have nearly as cool of a parting phrase.

Ninja'ed....ah well. Now, at least, I know why my regular games seem to have so few players.

...and the two screwups made it in

As always with Iron DM, I'm simultaneously pleased and agast at what I just got myself into

Good luck everyone. May the best DM win

Can I just say that having a sentence in the rules say "Do not worry about supplying stat blocks or other mechanical information" but then having a whole 5 points purely based on whether or not all mechanical information is included is... a bit poorly thought out?

That gets a 2/5 from me dawg.

I think the judges want us to treat this like a pre-written adventure/encounter. Call out monsters from their source. Give DCs for checks. Quick references to source materials were possible. You donít need a full stat block, if you can just say where the stat block for a monster exists. Granted, you probably want to avoid home brew mechanics.

For clarity, what we mean is...
We DO want things like this:
- Make a DC 15 Climb Check to get up the tree
- CR7: A Bugbear Fighter guards the door.

We do not want a total lack of rules, giving us stuff like this:
- A check can open the door.
- Three more monsters are in this room.

We also don't want you to go so far that you end up with this:
- Male Bugbear Fighter 6 (CR 7 - 3200 XP); hp 190; AC 7 (Touch 3; Flat-Footed 7) ...
- Wand of Laser Beams (strong conjuration) Slot: --; Cost: 90000gp ...

Day 1 Struggle: I have everything summed up but still have over 1,000 words to go. How am I going to expand this without making it all look like useless fluff?

Day 3 Struggle: Ack! 4,000+ words? Really? How am I supposed to condense all this??

Yesss! The BBEG isn't the ingredients or the judges-- it's the dang word count!
