Also, it was originally going to be a brick.

On the topic of Cyberpunk:

I think D&D is so traditionally medieval or early modern that presenting something from sci-fi gets easily lost in translation. Readers who aren't already familiar with the specific sub-genre will need more than 500 words to get brought up to speed. Quality speculative fiction can get pretty unfamiliar very quickly, and tends to operate in an area of subtlety that is often ignored when readers are looking for a blood-raging barbarian around every corner.

This is as opposed to Sci-Fantasy, such as Star Wars, which is really just reskinned medieval tropes with flashing lights.

I've never played in a Shadowrun campaign, but it's definitely on my list.

I love cyberpunk. If there's a non-shadowrun game I'll play!

I don't know anything about it, but it looks like someone created a cyberpunk game based on 5e mechanics:

Carbon 2185

I was surprised I got 3rd place. I thought mine was a little meh with too many classic cliche's. But then, I've never been a good judge of my own works.

The more cliches you can fit into a work, the better. The trick is to do it in a way that no one has ever seen before.

Won't lie even a little bit, the silly name bought you lots of points in my book. With many entries to read, I needed a quick hook to get me invested. I had to keep reading to find out the story behind the name!

With no intent to take the wind out of your sales, I feel I need to repeat myself as several people appear to still be confused about this: The table and the numbers in the other thread do not represent a ranked list. They merely reflect the exact spot in the bracket (see the thumbnail attached to the post with the list of round 1 participants). I.e, the number 3 there reflects only that you are competitor number 3 in match 1 and says absolutely nothing about how many votes you got. One more time: The information of who got how many votes will not be made public beyond the Top 3 that you can find in my post earlier in this thread when I told you to go check out the other thread.

Wow, I am humbled and taken aback by getting the number 1 position in round 0, I thought it was a fun concept, and it certainly resonated with a few of you, thanks to everyone who voted. Lots of pressure now, hopefully I can rise to the challenge. I really enjoyed all the entries, and in particular the silent Oracle, that one was great from an atmosphere perspective.

Ok, onto round 1 then, good luck everyone.

Alright folks, round 1 is now live and the clock is ticking. Have at it! Please don't forget to post your acknowledgment of having seen/read your thread, because if not you will get a PM from me in a few days.

Chosen alternates can be seen in the thread titles, but will also be getting a PM from me.

Edit: Minor note for completeness sake: I have updated the rules thread. The only change is that it now links to the official word counter which will be used to check the length of your entry. Individual match threads already linked to this word counter in the past, the rules were still more general from previous years, however, so now that is updated to be in clear agreement with each other.

I can see the thread, so don't bother sending me one more PM to fill up my PM box that I am just too lazy to empty.

Edit: Okay, so maybe I should have read the rest of the post before posting here. I'll go put a much better post in the proper place now.
