I'll keep mum until the entries are revealed. But my feelings through the process of writing my entry can be summed up by GeneT's last post.

As previously stated, only now getting the freedom to sit down for hours on end and plot/write this thing out. I finally have my idea, but its so cringy.

Fortunately, much like my vampire in Kapera's amazing VtM game, I'm going with it!

At the very least I know I will have fun writing it if nothing else! XD

Almost done, just need to add a little more.

Seriously though, I'm not feeling the best about mine right now. I'm running far closer to the word limit than I'd like.

Yeah, my writing is tighter as well. I chalk that down to experience from the previous round.

If you're still not feeling it, try changing your music! The playlist I had for my last entry wasn't cutting it anymore. Had to switch to something angrier. Rampstine to the rescue!

Remind to to think smaller if I somehow survive this round.

Cutting a rough draft of 3700 words to 1978 is pure torture. And I have no one to blame but myself.

Whoever coined the phrase Dream Big obviously never entered IronDM. A nightmare, that's what it is. A shuddering screaming nightmare.

It's now 03:37, and I ended up starting this at 23:00. The week has been busy, and I've not had a chance til now. I've been thinking about it all week, though. I just had to get the words out and formatting in. Only just managed to get in under the line at precisely 2000 words. I hope it's decent. I certainly enjoyed thinking about it!

I prefer to write the initial draft without worrying about word limits, and trim it down after.

Ok, hopefully it looks like I was able to submit with less than a minute to spare for the extra two points. I might need them to, Drager is a formidable foe, especially for a dwarf...

Finally done with about 12 words to spare.

Don't I know it. A proper version of my second round entry last year would have been well over 5000. Still feels bad looking back on that submission and knowing what it should have been.

I haven't been very active in here since I submitted. Looks like everyone's in on Match 2! Looking forward to seeing the creations. I'm also looking forward to the cringy aspects of your submission, Yuul. Depending on what you mean, exactly, I'll either love it or hate it, with nothing in between, haha.

That is the idea. Got my friday night game, but after I get back and take a nap I'll be finishing it up.

Pwehhhhh. Posted.

I don't think I'll read it over and over this time. It was tiring.

Good Luck All.

Well done everyone who has submitted so far, only two to go I believe, so should be good fun to start reading them all.

Then the judging begins, and all the hand wringing (from me) that involves...

Edit:

Hey Inem, just curious when your imminence will be updating the "Those that shall fight" section. Just curious
