Studio Audience (general OOC)

Herein lies the place for random discussions amongst those "contestants", or "poor fools"participating in, and "spectators", or "armchair judges"participating out of the 2012 Iron DM competition. Feel free to chat as you wish, however do not discuss the current rounds ingredients until the judges have posted for that round!

If you would like to contribute to the list of ingredients (with locations, creatures, objects, or other more abstract elements), you can post them in secret in this thread.

Round Zero is the place to express your interest. Note that unlike previous years, this is not a simple "Sign up Sheet", but the first step in the competition! The final competitors will be selected from there, so read the first post carefully, and follow the instructions. Make sure you read the rules, especially about not discussing current ingredients until judgements have been made

This year's main judges are:
  • Admin Chuck;
  • Embrodak;
  • EngrInAZ;
  • idilippy;
  • mad_gondsman;
  • RonarsCorruption;
  • Sakure; and
  • Squeak

Uh, hello! I resent being called "armchair judges". We here in the studio audience prefer the term "peanut gallery" thank you very much. (Jerk!) But really, thanks for running this.

Are we chocolate covered peanuts? If so, that would qualify us as being known as Goobers. Then we'd all be called goobers and there would be nothing we could do about it.

Haha Noted - so next year, "chocolate peanut gallery" should be an applicable term?

Different judges may hold different systems dearer, but we are endeavouring to make this an equal-opportunity gaming competition throughout all rounds, and encouraging substance over mechanics So go with what you feel best, but if it is something really random, and bizarre mechanics overshadow the story, then that will probably come back to haunt you.

Yo yo yo, people. I'm up, giving a bit of fresh blood as an ingredient for the IC. I'll do my best to challenge the old guard.

Should the entry explain a little bit for those unfamiliar with the system, or should the entry just stand on its own?

If you were to include a mechanics check in your Round Zero post, does that count against your word count or is it like a further round where the mechanics don't count against it?

I went with the assumption that any referee for this is familiar with 3.5/Pathfinder at least. And I've written mine as clearly as possible (I hope, considering the word count).

Yes, if you're going to use a nonstandard system, then yes, you should include a mechanics blurb if it's relevant.

Even more so than in* later rounds, word count is important, so we will be making a call on the number of words you can include as part of your R0 entry in our private chambers, and get back to you.

*EDITED

Well, I know at least a couple of the judges are familiar with 4E, but I figured a little bit of explanation might help the others to understand where the power I'm working on really expands design space while introducing something new and interesting. I'll see if I can fit both the simplified power AND the explanation within the word count!

Tenative ruling on mechanics:

You may have 100 'free' words to explain purely mechanical concepts that your item uses in your system. For instance, you may define an "At-Will Power" and a "Str vs Will" attack, so long as it is entirely rules, and so long as it is within 100 words. Items beyond that word count will be considered just like any other portion of the entry not following the rules.

This is what he said before adding the dreaded words... "But don't forget, no editing of your post is allowed."

I'm trying to decide if my schedule will allow me to compete this year. I'm mostly afraid that I'll hold out too long and the entry round will end without me making my own decision.
