I've tried to get the word out for folks to come and vote, so we'll see if that drums them up.

I won't have the time to give everyone a good read through until tomorrow, so I'll be voting then

Perhaps an announcement? Or a PM at least to everyone who entered?

I just left the titles, but I plan on discussing my favorites here, there was one rooted in RL folklore that I really liked, and another that just resonated with me.

Tsk... I should have looked at your Round Zero entry from last year for a sense of what pleases the crowd.

Though, I kinda wish they listed the top 3 entries for comparison.

Looks like there wasn't much discussion in 2018?

Yeah, it seemed like the Studio Audience was relatively quiet last year. I enjoyed a bunch of the entries! I’m curious to see which were each of your favorites. But I’ll refrain from discussing until the voting is over.

I guess we all did get right down to business last year. But I thought it was normal at the time, being my first Iron DM. That's alright, this year had some great entries we can talk about!

I think part of it is peoples’ minds being on the current round, but not being able to discuss ingredients to avoid a bias. Which is understandable!

The other thing I have noticed in the last two years of playing is that as the competition progresses and the competitors reduce, so does the interest/chatter. For the finals there seemed to be hardly anyone left commenting on the fantastic entries

Yeah— I’m not sure if people were reading and not commenting, or if the novelty of the spectacle wore off.

As in all things, I blame the rise of Social Media.

I think it was mostly interest dying down. These competitions are pretty rad, but they take a while to complete, and although those of us who enjoy DMing are usually invested enough in new ideas and possible story lines to stick around and read through the entries, a lot of people on RPGX are just here to play.

As in all things, I blame the rise in French military aggression.

I've only really been engaging in these community-wide events for the last couple of years, so that has been the norm for my experience.

Without the pomp and circumstance of a traditional event (food, tribalism, sensory overload, gambling, etc.) non-participants have to be unusually invested to engage consistently, and ex-participants are tired and no longer have skin in the game.

In an alternative reality, I'd suggest implementing a digital currency and promoting a background economy. That would turn events like these into focal points that might draw in vendors and their customers. (For example, someone might make a business creating/animating custom avatars/decorative formatting tools).

That would require some pretty significant investment though.

As it is... Maybe nested events could be the next big thing.

Have "Iron DM" be a headliner event, but then have open enrollment for concurrent weekly "Side Quest". People can try their luck at writing up a custom item, town, monster, etc in a low stakes environment and there wouldn't need to be a formal judge since it would be based on a community vote.

In addition to the main competition, there could be a Grand Scoreboard where the running tally of all Main and Sidequest scores are maintained so that people who drop out of the "Iron DM" competition can continue competing for smaller accolades.

Just making certain that there is always something for people to do, at multiple levels of commitment.
