Christmas in October, my favourite.

Draft of post finished while battling jet-lag to get the wee ones down, needs some good editing, though.

I call it the phantom Outplay pain.
I felt this effect when I got kicked in round 2. Luckily, I had several games pick up the pace at that time

Now that would be suspense

I'll start reading the posts in a few. I tend not to get onto RPG Crossing that much during the Clarification: My weekend is Friday and Saturday weekend. Got a bit to catch up on.

Well :dusts hands: That's that. A few hundred words that should have been cut in there somewhere, but what can you do.

Thanks -- judges, DMs, players, everyone. Could see anyone winning this. Good luck!

And now I'm gonna try to sleep.

Outplay is over!

The Round 4 thread has been closed. Everyone is free to meta-talk as they please.

The competitors will please sympathize with the fact that judging this round is very difficult. We will do our best to complete our task by the end of the week, as usual. Please bear with us as we construct and aggregate and debate our judgements.

Thank you all for competing, and for the dozens and dozens of hours of high quality effort that all players (in all rounds) put in! You all are, of course, what makes Outplay such a grand and unique event.

Sweet. Christmas in August starts in 10, 9, 8, 7, ...

Kidding, naturally.

I also canít thank my fellow Outplayers or the judges enough. Either side of the screen is a lot of work and I appreciate every one involved a lot.

Iím eager for the unusually warm Christmas when we get results. (By which I mean itís supposed to be warm-ish this week and not that Iím hoping December is in the low 80ís F.)

It was hard to choose but I made my PotM pick.

I think bhelogan’s was one of my favorites of the judge questions.

Did you guys have a favorite post/judge question from round 4?

Oh, nice, picking Bhel over the other judges while the rest of us are in the room. Makes me think of THIS /jk

Lol. I realized that might put me in danger of bitterness but then so does picking a PotM out of the many great contributions to Outplay.

No one ought to feel slighted because everyone was amazing. Though I risk sounding like a suck up now I really did liked all the judge questions. I only picked one to prompt some discussion.

If you couldn’t pick your own, Squeak, which judge question would you say you liked best?

Hehehe...

Actually, what I liked about them was the diversity of the questions. Each of the judges tried to pick a different angle to come at with the express intent of making you respond to all sides of an argument. I liked you guys trying to thread the needle between compassion and law...


And I agree that the quality of the tournament was fantastic -- what I was hoping for.

I actually thought that you guys had coordinated your question in the GM thread. Like maybe you had agreed on six topics and each of you picked one to elaborate into a post?

So you guys were actually as interested to see what the next judge post would say as we were?

Nope -- we knew what the questions were. Each of us came up with our own viewpoint on our own and built the question around that. So someone that reflect chaos (Mifflewerf) would have a distinctly different question than someone who represented law (Kokabel). We looked at what the other judges were doing to make sure there wasn't any overlap, but it really wasn't a problem.

So, to paraphrase, “We knew what the questions were and we built our own questions”? Or is more like, “We had a vague concept that we expounded on based on our character’s personality”?

Sorry. In real life I’m a stone half-golem...because I’m dense (sometimes)

We knew we each had an "aspect" to represent (chaos, law, etc), and had already developed our personalities. We shared questions as we developed them, so that there would not be great overlap.

You said that Cucaloinen was there to represent “Craft, wit, cunning.” Was that your ‘aspect’?
