Wyn that’s actually why I posted this suggestion as the Outplay runner specifically said in their judge bio that they don’t want to do a ton of reading. So I figured if you each posted a link to what you are looking for in your bios then players would have an idea of the style/content each judge is looking for. It sounds like this year will skew differently than last year and thought the beginning time was a perfect opportunity to get everyone on the same page.

I did put a little clarification there in my Bio. (Although, I have always been honest that reading and writing were never big hobbies of mine. I have had to develop those a lot, a player here on RPGx to accommodate my love of D&D).

I'll dig around and find some posts that fit my personal preference. Again, I'll state, these things can be subjective. We don't want people just copying/pasting past entries because they think it will fit what a judge wants to see.

Of course, it's expected to see different things, but having an idea what is expected is always nice. Subjectivity is fine, but knowing where that comes from is helpful.

I bring this up because I personally was chastised for my post quality last year and ended up writing in a different way for every post than normal so I was hoping to use my experiences to help this year's entrants. That's all.

EDIT: This is not me coming down on the past judging either, I was not giving what was wanted, but I didn't know that so I'm trying to help people this year.

All players with completed applications may compete in Round 1
I love this idea! It might make the first week hard on the judges if there are a lot of applicants. But it gives players a chance to get past the 'people didn't like my character so I didn't get in' phase. Good Job

I put it off but it's time to get to work on my character for Shadowrun!
Street Scum for Shadowrun was a surprise but one I'm going to enjoy. It's time for me to feel the pain that I put all my players threw in creating a character for the Street Scum game I'm running.

Oooo! Outplay is Back!

Not going to say I'm definitely in this year - but the old-timers will tell you I won the prototype competition that would become Outplay but never won an Outplay itself.

Might be a wee bit obsessed as a result. A bit. :P

Yup silk, there's a reason I'm taking that first week off from work. It's going to be a doozy for sure and I mean that in the best possible way. Looking forward to what you come up with




Yeah gleeful this year is your year for sure! Two winners this year so twice the chance to win! Not to mention the fact that you're a Shadowrun pro and an Outplay pro. You've got this in the bag

Hoo boy, a lot of site heavyweights amassing already. I should've waited a little longer before deciding on a concept, I'm going to spend weeks second-guessing whether it's going to compare.

Will be a heck of a competition to read along with either way, though.

I just wanted to mention that if anyone using chummer for a Shadowrun submission might want to save the file on a different post not in Outplay to preserve your anonymity as it puts it at the bottom of your post plain as day if you're using the site's management feature.
Copying the link address from right-clicking on the pdf file and clicking on 'Open link in new tab' doesn't give you the correct address, but if you choose 'Copy link address', that will work.

It took me a bit to figure that out so I figured I'd pass it along. Not something I do often here

This will be my first time Outplaying, but I seem to have a bit more time on my hands this year. Can't wait to join ranks with the rest o' y'all!

Per your request, I put 3 examples up in my Bio that showcase what I am looking for. Hopefully, this helps some. I will leave it up to the other judges if they want to do this or not, as it takes a fair bit of work, and every possible post of course has some shortcomings as well as greatness.
