Whew! Last post done, a bit less of a monster than the other four. Give the judges a bit of relief. Anyone else feel like they had to write more this week? I definitely felt like my posts had much more of a beginning, middle, and end this week, since we can't rely on each other or the DM to fill in the gaps. I must say, I enjoyed writing (essentially) short stories rather than worrying about fitting my posts into a larger narrative.

Phew, that's that. I gotta say, this week was the most fun yet. I really liked this format with the self-chosen challenges! (Though that doesn't change the fact that I'm no happy to have - at the very least - a week off from writing short books each day.)

Hehe! Thanks!
Just hope I don't rue this if I should make it to the next round.

If it makes you feel better, I had to burn 2 edge in round 1 just to stay relevant, and the last edge was completely wasted in round 2 because in the end I still failed the test.

This week was a lot rougher than I was expecting. Lady Luck just was not with me for these rolls either it seemed haha.

Wowee! I'm always happy to help turn a natural 1 into... Something else. Since I didn't have to use Lucky (Halfling), I'd even say that Rudy's luck quite literally rubbed off onto Gary! If that's not a cinematic ending, I don't know what is

Just tallied up my hits, and even with a lost round I still get almost nine hits per post (averaged over all five), which is surprisingly high. I haven't looked at the other participant's rolls to closely, but I'm satisfied with what I did in terms of mechanics either way. Could have been worse.

Now I could have followed the rules more closely and I'd have even more hits, but that ship has sailed.

Wheew! All done. It was fun getting to really dig into the fewer players posts. You all did great!

I knew which skills I was going to try but really had no idea what the test was going to look like until that posting day. Guess that's why I'm a forever player and not a GM!

If I go out on dice, well, that's the best way to go, imo. Sometimes it rolls your way and sometimes it doesn't and you gotta be okay with that.

Thanks for the week, chummers, and congratulations for making it through with your sanity to both the players and Imveros! The judges for each day were inspired, Imveros, and I'm glad you could dig deeper into your GM posts with the fewer players too.

Seems like everyone thoroughly enjoyed this round!

I know I certainly did and if there is one thing I have picked up from the week, its that I now have over a dozen new challenges I can throw at my own players at any time. What a great idea to have us all come up with the challenges ourselves!

It may have turned each of my posts into a novella, and for that I apologize to the judges who have to trawl through so much writing, but I loved the chance to get this far. Good luck to all those who make it through to the end!

Hello Outplayas! Your friendly neighborhood podcaster here hoping one or two of you from each system might be interested in sharing your experiences on the podcast, either by a written statement, a prerecorded bit, or possibly a live chat with KM or myself. Shoot me a PM if you are interested at all and let me know which version you’d be willing to do. If you are interested in a live chat send along your general availability (and timezone) with your message.

Thanks for your time!

So, tonight I hit my first podcast. I will listen to some more. My only difficulty is navigating through when I miss something, it isn't easy to go back just 10 seconds at a time. It's usually about a minute. Thanks for the work you and KingMonkey do on them.
