Can you provide a link to which one you are thinking of? As I recall, some of those worlds were destroyed at the end of the events in their respective Outplays. Having said that, while this is not the case in Orchardbrick, there is a very likely chance that the city you are thinking of, or a parallel dimensional equivalent to it does exist in this world.

I don’t have the technical capability to do that at the moment, but I think it was outplay nine. Look for me playing a half elf fighter.

Oh, if you are talking about Bryn Anvilsong, from Season 9, when a new member of the 9 was chosen, then yes, this is the exact same setting, and a continuation of the story that explores the fallout of that event.

I see they remembered to put up a banner this year!

(hint: they didn't last year)

I'm excited, even if I have no idea how to feel about this character generation mechanic. I'll give it a lookover tomorrow(busy tonight) and start brainstorming.

Yea, the banner was our biggest takeaway last year. =p

So, try it out! You might like it. Or, you might hate it. Either way, you will know once you get your feet wet.

Fortunately, due to recently stalking the open roleplaying forum, I had noticed the recent activity back when it was still locked.

That said, thanks for the banner, there are a fair number of us that love events like this but don't habitually check the announcements section.

I am of a mind, when it comes to game systems, to try just about any of them at least once!

The only game that failed to make it that far was D&D 4e, where I promptly closed the book before I even finished reading classes.

I was hoping to roll an Elf or Half-Elf so I could play as Tobias' sibling but that's not what the dice decided for me this year. Hopefully this world won't fall to pieces this season and I can try again another year

As someone who missed last year for this very reason I too say, "thank you."

You don't have to stick with your roll for your race. You can still get the bonus points for using the rolled CN. But, that is totally up to you.

Will you clarify the bonus points for the app? The only place I noticed them mentioned you said that not using the rolls forfeits bonus points,which were never defined.

A: No, you may choose to select your own race and CN, if you don't feel inspired by your rolls. You just forfeit the small bonus for doing so.

The original note is in the Stat Block section of Round 0. "Random rolls will receive an extra point in the Judges Scorecards."

The intent is to have potential bonus points be up for grabs in every round if certain objectives are met. These will be added to the Judge's scores (on top of scores they give by the matrix in the Meet the Judges thread).

For round 0, you get 1 point for using a randomly rolled race, and 1 for a randomly rolled CN.

This MAY come into play as we go over all the Round 0 applications. We want to take as many players as we can. The rules state we will be taking players in groups of 8, but I may take a group of 4 (e.g. 12 total players), if the numbers make sense to do so. So, if we, for example, have 15 applications, there will be 3 that won't make it to round 1. It will then come to judge's scores to see who doesn't make the cut, and then those bonus points may matter. If your application is good and interesting enough to easily make the cut, or the numbers work out that we can accept everyone, then they won't matter so much. I suspect the Bonus Points will be a bigger issue in later rounds.

This brings up the question, are we going to provide scores for round 0 and feedback?
The answer is, I would like to, but we will see if time permits. No promises just yet.

I'll add this to the Round 0 thread, but Savoy put together this awesome video where we talk a bit about the system this year. For folks like me who like to hear it vs. reading, it may be helpful :

Thanks for the info. I'm pretty happy with the app I have now but I'll consider fleshing out my initial idea too since there's lots of time

Today and tomorrow are looking busy, but I have absolutely nothing going on come Monday, so I'll probably get started then.

Do we know what color the badge is this year? I remember them all being listed somewhere, but for the life of me I can't find it anymore.

Relevant question: What site Style/Format are the judges using when reading our posts?

It's relevant because the last time I played I either lost points or came close to losing points, because of how 'wall-of-text-y' my paragraphs had appeared to the Judge. Waaaaaaaaaaaay back when I first joined the site, I had almost immediately started using the Drake(no background) style, and over the years had completely forgotten there even were other formats. The Drake style has a completely open post/text area from one side of the screen to the other, but most of the others have varying levels of reduced width, down to half or slightly less.

So what's a normal-sized paragraph in my site style of choice can be decidedly not in another's. So would like to know what I should be building a post around, in terms of visual space.

I had been planning since the end of last year's competition to make room in my schedule for this!
Unfortunately, things didn't quite go according to plan.

Unless something drastically changes for me within the next 20 days 3 hours and 58 minutes, I'll probably have to enjoy this one from the stands. At least I can enjoy participation as a spectator!

P.S. I love this year's dice logo!
