The Search List & Submissions

Please reply to this thread with submissions only,
but feel free to head over to the stands to chat about the event!

The 2nd RPGX spring scavenger hunt is upon us, and this is where you make your submit your findings! First off, please make sure you read the rules.

The Rules
  • Teams will have 36 hours from the time of the announcement to post their findings.
  • Teams must be comprised of 3-10 people. No more and no less.
  • Once you've joined a team, stick with them.
  • You can only be on one team.
  • You can edit your submission up to the deadline, but not after. The latest edit time will count as your submission time in the event of a tie.
  • A post, item, person, etc can only be used for a single scavenger entry. No double dipping.
  • All posts referenced/used must be time stamped prior to the start of the scavenger hunt.
  • Be a good sport!

    Types of Scavenger Items:
    Posts:
    Provide a link directly to the post in question, and note what part of the post qualifies. Try to make it easy on the person doing the scoring. If they cannot see how the post qualifies, they may not award a point for that entry.

    Physical Items:
    For each item, you will need to post a picture of something one of your team members owns alongside a piece of paper with RPGX Scavenger Hunt 2022 and your RPGX username written on it. If you use social media to post your images, feel free to use #RPGX and #RPGXScavengerHunt2022. We'd love to see your smiling faces, but feel free to blur/crop your images if you want.

    Teammate/People:
    Team Mates need to be registered on your team, and the team member will need to make an affirmation post in the Team Registration thread. Please be respectful as you search for teammates. Reaching out to others to form a team is encouraged, but badgering other RPGX members who don't want to participate will result in Or worse.disqualification.

    Link the profile of the person in question, and link any posts needed by the search item when submitting the item. If they aren't a teammate, consider sending a quick PM to let your new friend know they're going to be famous!


Then you will of course need to review the all mighty list of scavenger items! Unfortunately the list was once again sprayed with graffiti by someone who thought they were "funny". Sadly, we didn't have time to scrub it off, so most items will have taglines on them.

SubmissionsEach submission needs to have the following elements, all hidden behind a veil of secret text.
  • Be made in the designated time constraints (including last edit)
  • The team name, and a link to the team's registration
  • A list of scavenger items found including, at minimum, the item # and any relevant links as outlined by the scavenger item types. Item names are appreciated, but not required.

    For your convenience you can clone this google sheet, and copy & paste the RPGX Table Format into a three column table tag, if you wish to use it.
  • You are free to add additional notes, or comments that you think will help the review team
