Of course you get to hang out here! This is an open area for anyone who wants to hang out and talk about the competition.

Sweet! I assume no talking about the game at hand though. That would make sense.

I was sorely tempted to try again this year and that lovely personal message (just for me, surely) from Hugga clinched the deal.

Basically, I'm blaiming him for the eventual neglect of my wife and children during the competition, is what I'm saying.

Good luck, eveyone!

Gath, that's right. Any comments about ingredients in a current round before the judges have posted on a round could result in you being kicked out of this thread, or if you're a competitor - disqualification.

Also, a clairification on "mechanics" versus wordcount. mechanics sections are exclusively restricted to existing rules that judges reviewing your entry might need to know. Things such as:

3.5e mechanicsA standard action is an action that takes a lot of time and a lot of effort, and can normally only be taken once a turn.

or
4e mechanicsAn encounter power is an ability that can be used one each encounter, and requires a short rest (five minute) to recharge.

or
anima mechanicsdamage is anima is calculated based on how much the attackers roll beats the defenders roll, multiplied by a weapon's base damage

or
GURPS mechanicscharacter points are typically given out once a session, and can be used at any time to improve a character

Err, there might have been a misunderstanding on my part then.

Oh well, I went over the limit then.

Yup, definitely thought of the system meant of the item/power/npc, not the mechanics of the gaming system. It might be beneficial to be a bit more explicit in the future, like gaming system vs system.. I dunno.

Cheers.

Well, good news is you have time to correct it; seeing as how the no editing rule isn't yet in effect.

I would hate to see any competitor at any stage of the contest knocked out for that small technicality.

I'm not going to risk breaking one rule for the sake of correcting a mistake based on a misinterpretation of another rule. I'll keep posted to see what the verdict is.

Speaking of, might as well ask this now- can we have some clarification on "Do not worry about stat blocks or other mechanical information", please?

You do not need to fully stat out any monsters or NPCs in the adventure that you write. Simply saying that Lord Bartlesby is a 5th level human expert with these key skills/feats (if any) that might be relevant to the adventure or pointing to the entry for chain devil in the Or a link to the SRD.Monster Manual (or whatever book is appropriate) is fine. If you cobble together a mix of monsters and class levels simply make it clear what they are, no full stat block necessary.

The point is we don't want you to have to use up your word count on mechanics that the DM running the game can look up.

Also not that I at least am going to be fairly stingy on the word count rule. I have competed in Iron DM previously and the word limit was something I stuck to religiously. I was peeved when I saw folks go waaaay beyond the limit and not get any points deducted for it. I do not speak for any other judges though, who may be more lenient than me on that aspect.

Further question on the stat blocks - Does one need to link to stats or can we assume that DMs will look it up? Which of the following is the correct format?

Quote:
Humerus the Bone Devil casts Wall of Ice and hides behind it.
or

Quote:
Humerus the Bone Devil casts Wall of Ice and hides behind it.
... and now I'm definitely making Humerus as a bad guy.

Edited my submission. 248 words.

Also, I'm not sure about it but I kind of like to make things look pretty with the use of fieldsets and tables (even if tables are used for word blocks/paragraph formatting) but I am afraid that you guys will count the bbcode against my word limit instead of just the words on the page.

Can I get a ruling on this please?

BBCode is ok, and not counted in the word count
