Oh, this is going to be interesting. I didn't realize I'm finishing Mechanical Division of Round 1 for SR in Last.

Dramatic!

Haha! Hopefully we can continue this topic at a later date.

Tropes. Tired and boring or roleplaying gold?

There's something comforting about familiarty. So on the one hand, a writer may see a trope and curse its author for their clinging to the mundane. But on the other, a reader may feel drawn to a story they know told in a way they haven't heard. Patterns exist and repeat fot a reason.

Both!
It all depends on how you use them. Tropes exist for a reason: because they work. People connect with tropes because their familiarity makes them feel true. As a writer, the challenge is to breathe fresh life into tropes so that they feel original and not abuse them in a way that makes them feel stale.

This is break week and yet I'm checking it just as compulsively! Outplay, what have you done to me?

Question from the spectator stand: "When are the results expected? I thought it was 11am EST?"

As for parity, they will in fact be a crossover round in round 4

The cost of the books seems to be around $30-$35 each. Except for the first edition Deities and Demigods. (Well, technically, the first edition had Cthulu mythos but they had to take that out. Something else missing too.) That cost $75.
