A question regarding round Zero....

"You can style it as either for the player(s) or the character(s)", but can you do it for both? The bulk of it for the characters, with a sentence or three directly addressing the players?

I'm not sure if the Chairman has a different take on this, so I'd wait for his answer before actually submitting, but speaking as a judge, I would say that a choice like that is like the choice to put garlic in the risoto - you're the cook, so it's your call. It's definitely going to have a consequence, and it's up to you to decide whether that consequence is likely to be positive or negative to what you're presenting.

On the other hand, getting another chance to compete with you and Ion2Atom and the others is very tempting. Just a lot to think about.

Of course, I'll probably still do it.

I really wanted to do an adventure based on Outplay's Shadowrun characters but after reading over the apps and the world... I have no idea what's going on. It's an impressive world and I like the flavor but there's a little too much info to get right before I make an adventure synopses.

Well said arin12!

Indeed, if you wish to add a few sentences for the players, you can do that, too.

Actually Arin, I'd have to know what the base flavor profile of the Risotto was going to be before risking garlic. For instance I've done several fruit and wine infused risotto's which would have fared horribly with garlic. Just lastr year I catered a party where a bed of saffron/chardonnay/orange juice risotto was garnished with parsley and blood orange twists beneath a frenched rack of pork glazed with the same chardonnay plus apricots and orange. Served a medley of cippolini onions, shallots, and asparagus braised in a port wine reduction as well as carrots Vichy for sides. Salad was mixed greens with candied walnuts, cranberry, and sliced poached pear. So yea...that garlic would have been bad there.

It's okay, you guys, those are the JUDGES. *whew* We're good.

---

Under the supposition that I might be grouped in this unspecified "pro" mix, it might intrigue you to know that this is my first time competing. I'm terrified and insecure.

I don't think anyone really likes to submit themselves (or their work) to the judgment of their peers, particularly when said judgment is promised to be harsh and callous.

We're all in this together. No former Iron DMs have entered yet except for Ion2Atom, who won't be strutting his stuff until Round 1 (as I understand it). It's a level playing field that plays no favorites and rewards only the most creative and diligent game-crafters.

So, Jarl11, get your heiney in gear and compete! You know you want to.

And ogamodyna, sounds like you need more garlic in your risottos! ...said the guy who loves raw garlic.

No RPGX DM XP = No pressure.

So I have thrown in an entry, should be fun and educational.

@ Jarl11 - You can't call people giant and not enter when you have Giantslayers in you signature.

All of you newbies, have no fear! This competition is not a popularity contest. It is a quality contest. There is no public vote, and us judges are being blackmailed asked nicely to be as impartial as possible.

So, write something awesome. Don't worry about who else is in the contest or not. Consider it this way: I have NEVER made it through into the first round.

Says the guy ranked second overall in RPXP.



I must say, I like Raylorne's way of doing things. Rolling dice to decide the outcome is in the basic spirit of the games.

Just keep in mind that leaving things up to what you mortals call 'chance' will always favor the elder gods.

I will also probably enter again this year.

My chances, as usual, rest solely in the inability of the Iron DM staff to determine what constitutes a "hard" ingredient in my warped view of things.

Dangit, hippo, you've probably jinxed me with that. My entry so far stinks in a big way.

Looking forward to playing with/competing against the lot of you.
