At the end of it all, the most popular items/settings/monsters could be bundled up and published in the Explosive Runes periodical for public use.

Give people a chance at little immortality.



Or even... Make the audience part of the main event. Let the audience influence the surprise ingredients by voting on themed mystery boxes. (ex-participants get a number of votes equal to 1+ half their final round rounded up, so R0-1 vote, R1-2 votes, R2-2 votes, R3-3 votes)

I dunno about the mystery box thing, but the Explosive Runes bit is a really good idea. I'll run it by Dirkoth, and maybe we can do it next year.

I clicked on the thread thinking it was still open, but turns out it's been two weeks. Can you toss in a "we're closed" edit or a specific date next time, pretty please, Inem?

If someone will bundle and write up a bit, we still have time to get it into the upcoming winter issue (but, it needs to be done before Halloween... literally, by November 1st).

If not, it can be done for next summer issue.

Honestly, I kind of don't keep up with Outplay or Iron once I'm gone as I have a bad habit of burning myself out in them. I actually tend to take somewhere between two and three hours for a normal post, a normal app for me can take upwards of 8 hours. I think I spent somewhere around 14 hours on each of my posts in the actual rounds during last year's Iron DM. Combine that with trying to apply to, or keep up, with other games and it just drains me.

Oh well, party hard time again.

Alright folks, the votes are tallied, and tiebreakers applied where necessary. It was an extremely close fight vying for those last few spots, so don't take it too hard if you missed out. Go here and see if you have made it to the next round.

In addition, even if you didn't make it, chances are decent you will be selected as an alternate for one of the matches. If this happens, I strongly encourage you to post an entry, even if you only get the chance to compete if someone else fails to complete theirs (which has definitely happened the past few years).

I will now proceed to unsecret the Round 0 entries so you can see who posted what and give them RPXP if you liked their creation. Votes will remain secret, but I will reveal the Top 3 vote collectors:

1.) The Deck of Many Blanks, submitted by Atua
2.) The Silenced Oracle, submitted by Gaijin
3.) (tie) The Parchment of Promulgation, submitted by Astra
3.) (tie) The Transmogrifier, submitted by Unko Talok

Make sure you check quickly whether you qualified for round 1 or not, as (barring any unforeseen events preventing me from getting them ready), matches will begin Sunday (European time, so possibly even late Saturday for quite a few of you).

Best of luck to everyone in the upcoming competition, and thanks to everyone who participated and/or voted!

Edit: Entries revealed!

Ouch, was sorting hoping mine would do better. My personal favorite was the Inu to Oodua, simply because of its roots in Yoruba culture. I have a lot of Nigerian friends and coworkers, most from either Yoruba or Ibo, and I find their mythology and legends fascinating.

Also... hope you're ready, Gaijin! May the best man/woman/non-binary/child/eldritch horror/sentient cucumber win!

I notice that a fair number of the challengers are Gaseous (or extremely cold). So, interpret that as you will.

EDIT: It looks like ParzivalFair's entry is still secret. EDIT2: And Silk's?

Not being in the top 3 really doesn't mean much. For all you know, you just hade a single vote less than those in third place

Fixed those secret entries. No comment on the rest.

How many hours are there in a day? Just 24, you say...?
Uh oh... Now the panic of commitment is beginning to set in...

It's alright, you can say it, most of us are full of hot air!

Still feel it was a missed opportunity to not name the cyberpunk submission the neon challenger
