Nah, Gaijin, I definitely don’t think that reading everything from previous years prior to a round 0 draft is necessary. You’ll have time afterwards.

lol, then I'll just read all of your and Inem's Round Zero posts. I've had a taste of what I'm up against, and I'm not going to take any chances.

Don't count on that too long though, Gaijin; the banner ads have a way of shuffling people in. I know last year it looked like we wouldn't even hit sixteen at first, and then six or seven people posted in the span of a couple days.

And the time demand really isn't as bad as it seems, as long as you can halfway organize your time. I suck at it, and I still made it to round 2 before a work thing forced me to drop out.

Such is life. Worst case scenario, I can drop a "Disregard if" notice in the submission to auto-dropout if it gets crowded.

I'm going into this competition cold. Reading the previous year's entries didn't help me much in Outplay. I'm one of those, learn by doing, guys

For anyone teetering on the edge of entering ... Iíd say Go For It!

This time last year, I was a newbie wondering whether I should have a go. Iíd never DMíd a PBP before - and some of these formatting tricks looked like magic to me. How the dickens do people do tables?


Well I went for it. And I loved it. The sheer story telling and test of wit was a reward in itself.

I was lucky and made it few a few rounds, until Inem finally did for me in his inimitable style....

But I learned stacks - and it gave me confidence to go for it for real. I am now DMing two games and playing in several others. Oh and I can make tables too!


So it doesnít matter if you are new or old. First time DM or master of the craft. If you enjoy exercising your imagination and story telling - then this is the competition for you!


Oh - and sorry. Iím not in this year myself. Those two games Iím DMing and the others Iím playing? Well thatís about me more than full up!


Best of luck to you all!

Just some advice for anyone thinking of applying: If you have a crazy idea, go ahead and use it. I did alright last year by simply going with the first thing that popped into my head and running it to it's conclusion.

Can confirm crazy is best. My Round Zero entry last year was a halfling village who had taken up residence in the wreckage of the Enterprise-D calling it Steel Hill.

And..... done! Looking forward to this again this year. Thankfully Inem is not in it this year, but the other formidable foes are!

Good luck to one and all!

Indeed, I almost missed it. I new it was coming up, but only spotted it a couple of hours ago. Luckily I have been mulling over a particular item for my online game for a while now that I thought was fun and quirky so the Round Zero challenge lined up really nicely and didn't take me too long to compose thankfully.

I can confirm that crazy is good as that is how my Round 0 post came about. A little flashback to Robin Hood and woop there you go.

+1 for crazy. This contest is supposed to be all about fun, and you should enjoy writing your submissions! I’m still a tiny bit shocked that last year I didn’t get in any trouble for “Fire in the Hole,” a brothel in the City of Brass run by a retired general. Lol.

Just a heads up to those who aren’t planning to read previous years entries. You’re doing yourself a disservice. Previous year’s winners won for a reason. A lack of cohesive formatting might let you squeak through, but the competition gets fierce in the later rounds as you find yourself facing winners from previous rounds.

I made it to the semi finals in outplay on gumption alone before TH soundly trounced me.

Man, we're really close to having a full house for this year! Someone else needs to get up an app!
