Ok, entry submitted. Probably way overthought it, but the process was fun.

Since I encouraged you to participate, I'd say there's about a 95% chance that I lose to you, Gaijin.

I've never been one to believe in miracles, but I appreciate the thought.

DMing represents one of my major weaknesses as... well... a human being. I'm notoriously mechanics driven, deliberately unconventional, and regressively introspective, so crafting a pure, story-driven narrative designed to appeal to a diverse audience that is also straightforward enough to run with a cursory understanding of the rules is not my wheelhouse.

If I make it past the first round, I'd say there is a 95% chance that we both win: You, the competition; Me, a minor reduction in social awkwardness.

I felt this on a spiritual level.

So, I notice a lot of returning faces, including Jon. Welcome back! I was recently going back through a bunch of old threads (because I'm a weirdo, I guess!), and found a post in Milestones where Imveros and you talked about how the NPSG really helped keep you around the site. I just think it's super cool that you've been such an involved member, and are participating in this competition again.

What is the cut off time for round zero apps?

Looks like it isn't explicitly stated, but I'd wager 11:59PM EST on the 13th.

Here's a Countdown clock for absolute clarity.

Oh, good to know. Going to try to slide in with an entry tonight/tomorrow morning. Had to take the time to make sure something similar had not already been done in previous Iron DMs.

In legitimately almost missed this... let’s see if I can participate in IDM without simultaneously killing the only game I’m running currently.

If it weren't for the last minute, nothing would get done!

That's a winning strategy here right? Right?!

Ugh, I'll need to do some serious schedule juggling if I hope to fit an award-winning entry several times longer than the one I just submitted

Here's to hoping I make it round one. Maybe I'll get to face off with KhamLuc! Then we can see if the student has become the master!

Good luck everyone

*Slides in an entry*

Had to trim 60+ words off it first before I dropped it in, which was tough.

Surprisingly, I actually felt comfortable with the word limit. My entry came in just over 400 and I didn't feel it needed any more. Far cry from last year where I kept feeling the need to add more and more.

Much to my regret, I am gonna have to step out at the last second, as I am currently boarding a flight back home

Here's to everyone's best effort and inspiration, but most importantly, to Inem's ineligibility!

And with that, submissions for Round Zero are now closed. Nice bunch and nice number of applications this year, good job guys. Now, please go vote over in the voting thread ASAP. I currently plan to begin match setup for round 1 Friday evening German time, which for you US folks means it's best to get your votes in by Thursday late night. You might get lucky and still get Friday morning, or you might not. And obviously, the more people vote, the better!

Also, side note about round zero entries: Some of you did some neat things, but might want to take a closer read of the rules thread. In particular rule number 5 on images and outside links

Damn, had a family emergency this weekend and totally forgot about my submission. Oh well, there's always next year. Good luck all!
