Secreting to me is fine; but do remember to use the spoiler tags, also!

I've posted a thread here for the judges to introduce themselves as they have time - hopefully, they will all be introduced by the time we are ready for Round 1

Am I suppose to include things like intended level or rules for the game we're pitching?

The official rules state round zero to be 300 words while the round posting says 500. Should I assume the round posting takes precedence?

You are welcome - it's up to you. Does your description need that stated, or does it work better without? Could those words be used elsewhere?

Always take the specific over the general (but thanks - the 300 has been replaced by 500 - an increase because the topic felt a little large to be restricted to only 300)

...sooooo I just hit submit, because after re-reading the Post 0 intro it said don't waste words on mechanics. But then, after submitting, I noticed Henry's introduction on the judges page which said "Must give me all the mechanics I need" and suddenly I was like... wait... should I have?

I didn't do anything mechanical in my post. Did that just totally disqualify my?

Nope, that's for when you're writing an actual adventure. Specific trumps general, as usual

Regarding word count, is BBCode included?

EDIT: Turns out, it doesn't make much of a difference.

I believe when hugga copies over entries all bbcode gets left behind. It makes it harder to identify what entry belongs to who if people can identify other people's bbcode habits/style

No -- BB code is not included.

All I personally do is copy/paste the text of what is sent and drop it into a word counter. Since I am doing this from the actual post rather than in the edit function, I don't see the BB code. For example, your post above shows as having 16 words.

First time I’m even considering participating in one of these site competitions... let’s see how quickly I can embarrass myself.

Apologies for the double post, but I was wondering just how setting neutral these towns should be?

Is it ok to include any nonstandard setting information, or would it be better if they were as neutral as possible, able to be dropped into any game/setting?

Just don’t want to create a town in a unique setting and have it be tossed outt because it’s not generic/neutral enough.

Hope that's not the case, as mine is pretty specific.
Round Zero Rules do say

...the focus for this Round Zero challenge is to create an interesting story or description behind the location you provide.


The best write-ups will move through to the actual competition.
so I am hopeful that those kind of considerations won't be as strictly enforced till the numbered rounds actually begin

Agreed. Mine is also... kind of specific. Welcome to gamma canon.
