Keep it as is, if you want to use the random race.

Are we intended to include the explicit mechanics for SMs in the stat block, or just a... sort of thematic description, with the idea that the GM adjudicates bonuses or the like? I assume the latter, but wanted to check. Interesting system you've got here.

You do not need to, and it’s probably better not to list specific mechanics for adventure gear and Signature Moves. Buff spells are the one exception, deciding if they grant a Bonus or an extra 1d6, effecting 1 ally per success, such that your team can work together to take advantage of the Buff on the same day of posting. Otherwise, the Buff will apply and be noted with the next GM update. That has already been clarified though with most players as applicable during their initial mechanical review.

Will the secret tags be lifted before the start of round 1? I'm very interested to see what everyone came up with.

That’s a good question… and will the characters be anonymously voted in, or taken to round one by the judges’ scores alone?

Secret tags will be lifted when Round 0 comes to a close this Friday the 25th.

There will not be a public vote on Applications this year. There will be a judge's vote.

Rules query: Suppose a character casts Invisibility (a Known Spell) in order to sneak past some guards. Would you try to roll ABOVE your CN (because you're casting a spell) or BELOW your CN (because the key action is physically sneaking around the guards)? Or do you get to choose?

For Outplay, I would just have this be one roll, rolling High for the spell. We are having you make just one roll/action per post.

I've got another technical question: will we be allowed to post more than once per day? Of course everyone would roll only once, but they could post earlier (to coordinate their actions?) or later (to respond to something being said/happening), or just whenever for added role-playing.

I don't see how could be a problem, but I DO see the judges being busy enough managing 1 post from everybody to add this as well (which, by the way, is also the reason why my description was way under 1k words!)

No, we are sticking with the one post limit with a 1 hour duration allowed for edits.

Thanks for clarifying that rule on number of postings.
Another question: will we be able to see the posts from this in our bracket or are they secreted? If, for example, Player A posts three hours after the prompt goes up, can Players B, C and D see that post as they prepare their posts?

Posts in game are not in secret. You will have visibility of your thread and the other group in your bracket. What you won't have visibility of is the other two brackets threads until the end of the week.

Is there a word limit for Round 1 posts?
