Round Zero!

Wake up, wake up! Round Zero is upon us!

Iron DM 2022

This is the Round Zero thread, where all those who wish to partake in this year's competition can show what they have, and see if they can stand up to their fierce competitors and last year's victor, Thaco, should they return to defend their title! Come, refine each other so that the best may face off, and the greatest be crowned Iron DM of 2022!

The thread will be open for 15 days from the time this is posted (exact deadline see here). Make sure you get your entry in quickly! Once you have posted, that is it: no edits, no second posts. Breaking these most simple of rules could lead to a very early (and very embarrassing) departure from the stadium. It is also recommended that you read the general rules for the competition, though quite a few are not necessarily applicable to Round Zero (this will be clear from the context). In the case that anything mentioned in this announcement post for Round Zero contradicts anything in the rules, then this is a specific rule for Round Zero and supersedes the general rules in that particular case.


Round Zero RulesYou are to describe an item that could be the focal point of an adventure of campaign. It could be something specifically useful to a player, or more of a McGuffin object. Do not include links or images in your post; the teaser should exist totally within the post itself, and should only be text and text formatting. The item can be for any setting/system you like, though even mentioning a system is not necessary!

You have a hard maximum of 500 words for your description. Do not break it. This limit includes all text within the body of your post, so be careful! Do not waste words on mechanics - the focus for this Round Zero challenge is to create an interesting story or description of the teaser.

You get one entry; second posts by anyone will result in disqualification.

Do not edit your entry once posted. Secreting to me is sufficientSecreting and Spoilerbutton inside of the secret textspoiler-buttoning your entry is not only highly recommended, but required!

The best write-ups will move through to the actual competition. It is recommended that you follow the Studio Audience Thread, as that will be where general announcements are most likely to be posted. We will not be individually contacting each participant who qualifies to let them know they did so, but rather posting a list. It is your responsibility to keep track of this and other announcements.
