One person here passed their Insight check, and another didn't, lol.

I'd love to have you competing, though, Hotsu! It's a fun contest, IMO.

We get at least one person every year who asks if everyone on the site sees their name specifically, so don't feel too bad. The first year I did it, I think it was Admin Dirk who legitimately thought I was calling him out, because it was the sort of joke the mods were making at that time, and it took a few days to convince him it was just a coincidence.

Doubt I'll have the time and energy for it this year, although I've enjoyed the challenge in previous years.

Yep! Thats where they get posted, Tysyacha. They’re kept secret at first, so that y’all can vote on which ones you like most once they’re all in, without knowing *who* submitted them.

Right on the money. For future rounds, it's going to be exceptionally important to fully read the instructions and make sure your post adheres to them.

I don't think your post will be disqualified for not being posted with secret tags, but I think, technically, the judges could make that kind of a ruling.

I hope you make it to the head-to-head rounds, but once there, you MUST follow all the rules since you'll be in sudden elimination against someone else that probably IS following all the rules. The judges are a persnickety bunch!

When do us mere mortals get to see entries besides our own?

When the deadline for round zero hits in about 9 days, we'll open up the Round Zero voting thread for a week so all anonymized entries can be seen and people can vote on their favorites.

This is done because the bracket accommodates 16 people, but we usually get more than 16 people who would like to participate. We have the audience at large (including participants, judges, and anyone else) vote to pick the top 16 entries.

I saw the banner for this and tried looking into the ancient writings from a time-lost era (specifically, 2021) to get an idea how this worked. I'd like like to make sure I'm understanding the general theme here!

The rounds for Iron DM are about writing setting elements (like this Round Zero) and eventually escalating to crafting entire small, word-count-limited adventures, yes? As opposed to actually being called upon to DM something with live players?

That is a pretty good summary! Granted, getting involved with the community, and participating in these kinds of events is a great way to make friends, and get invited into games. But yea, it's more like writing up small modules that someone could run.

That's a lot less daunting than the alternative! I may have to see what I can do with 500 words in this round...

5 Days until the Round Zero deadline.
Are all the entries posted in the Round Zero thread? I only see 6 entries. Do most entries show up at the last minute?
I am new to this, so I don't know what has happened in previous years.

We do often have a flurry of entries near the deadline. A lot of people like to polish their entries and get them as good as they can, and the "no editing" rule means they don't do this in the game thread itself.

... my personal approach is to try to get it wrapped up early so I can stop fretting, but that's different!
