Studio Audience (general OOC)

Oh, look at that! You have found this thread - well done! But the challenges that wait beyond here are far more grueling!


Yes, it is once more time for the Iron DM competition! Within this thread lies the place for random discussions amongst those "contestants", or "poor fools"participating in, and "spectators", or "armchair judges"participating out of the 2015 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. 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


But, for now, chat, speculate, and ponder on what the competition will be like. And, if you wish, offer feedback and suggestions on what has come before.

I was just thinking yesterday "Huh. Iron DM would be a great way to let people know that I'm poking around the site again."

BOOM. GAUNTLET THROWN. I'm going for the gold this year.

Just to be 100% sure, the rules for round zero are completely up there, right? If I were somehow ready to do my application already, I could post using those guidelines and not worry about immediate disqualification?

I'm paranoid ;_;

So if we were interested in posting an application, as mentioned a great idea would be to secret it, question is who to secret it to? Should we include just hvg3akaek? Or wait until all the judges get a chance to post in the intro thread and include them too?

Hugga, I've never done this, and I've already managed to confuse myself twice.

1) Are there any ingredients for round 0?

2) I don't get the bonus point? What do you mean by "create the entry"?

Thank you kindly.

Generally speaking, Iron DM has always been at a bad time of year for me. I've always wanted to participate, but I've pretty much always been out of the country for one reason or another for large chunks at the beginning of the contest. This year, however, is different. This year, I'm home, and this year, I finally get the chance to compete. It'll be tough for sure, but I'm definitely looking forward to throwing down with the best DMs the site has to offer

Atalla, my reading for the bonus point would be as follows: If your adventure is designed to be an adventure for any of the characters made for this year's outplay competition, you qualify for the bonus point if the judges feel you deserve it.

IIRC the judges get DM permissions for the folder (and/or are Reds) so they can view any secret text.

Does the author retain all the rights to their work for this competition? Even if it makes it to later rounds and the writing is critiqued (edited) by the judges or others?

Sorry if that is answered in the rules, but I didn't see it in my first read through.

I feel like Atala, i can't quite understand what the bonus point involves.

Round Zero is a go - get them in as soon as you have them completed!

You can secret it just to me, and when the round is closed, I will reveal all entries.

Nope - it is a simple blurb / teaser / campaign hook submission (similar to what a DM might do in the "DM seeking Players" forum).

The "bonus point" is a non-tangible encouragement. It *may* improve people's opinion of your piece, but it is not guaranteed. Basically, it's something cool you could do, tying into one of the other site's competitions, but as there is no scoring in the Round Zero, the point is more abstract than actual.

"Create the entry" simply means writing up your 300-word submission.

Thanks for the answers! With the reassurance that I'm not going to insta-disqualify myself, I'm confident enough in what I've written to post it now.

I'd say something like FIRST! But... but that'd be crude... I'd better not.

It's Iron DM Time! Huzzah! Really have to decide whether I can handle it this year. Last year took so much out of me.

Oh no...dare I? The stadium is large. It is darkly foreboding. It is full of people eating popcorn and peanuts and waiting to pass JUDGEMENT! /shudder. But am I not a veteran of RPGX?? Have I not put forth my paltry offerings and been judged worthy by my own peers and friends who are dear yet dearly, brutally, painfully honest, as only true friends can be? Alas am I wracked with longings to test myself, yet beset by basest fears of shame and despair. Yet is this not how we grow? By striving against odds, by pitting ourselves against daunting obstacles and incredible odds?! Yes! I SHALL!! I think.
