Official RPG Crossing 2024 Scavenger Hunt

Calling all glory-seeking goblins!

The 2024 Scavenger Hunt!
Play has begun now!
New teams can register in 2025!
right-aligned image

Premise of 2024 Event: You team up with 2 other players from RPG Crossing to form a group of goblins who have been charged with stealing a golden T-Rex egg and returning it to your goblin queen.

Mechanics: Your team may choose to play competitively or non-competitively. Either way, there will be a goblin world to explore, trivia questions about RPG Crossing, and challenging tasks. An example of an RPG trivia question from the 2023 event: Which player-member is listed at the top of the Solo Bazaar's BIG TABLE? An example of a task challenge from the 2023 event: Provide a 5-second audio clip of an orc roaring out your team's name.

Duration and Post Rate: The game lasts for two weeks. Each team is to post daily, one post per team. This means you can divide up the posts among team members for an average of two posts per week per team member.

Roll Play or Role Play?: Dice-rolling will be a larger part of the game for those who choose competitive play. Both competitive and non-competitive teams will be tasked by the goblin queen with creating a great goblin epic tale, so bring on the role-playing and creative writing.

How to Play: We will accept as many teams as we think we can manage while still ensuring a good experience for each team. Go ahead and sign up in this thread. You can sign up as a team or find teammates in this thread. Once you have your team, you will be given your own Team OOC Thread and can begin creating your goblins with the Build A Goblin thread!

This post reserved for Q+A

Question 1Question 1: What is the difference between competitive and non-competitive play?

Competitive play -- Your team competes to get the most points to go onto the RPG Wall of Fame. In order to maintain a level playing field for the teams, there is some standardization on the character creation abilities, more standard text responses from the GM, more binary fail/success results for mandatory rolls, and penalties for late posts. Also, the task challenges you submit will be ranked and judged in comparison to other competition teams.

Non-competitive play -- Follows roughly the same scenario, map, and mechanics of the competitive play, but there is more degrees of success results to dice rolls and greater flexibility in GM response. Here, the goal remains to explore the world and fulfill the golden egg quest, but teams can choose to do as many or as few of the challenges and trivia questions as they wish without these results affecting the progression of the narrative. Teams can also take longer to respond to a post and go beyond the time limit (within reason--we don't want any volunteer GMs continuing to do this through May).

Welcome, Team Book Eaters!
Your OOC and Game Thread are open.

Welcome, Nyx89! Are you wanting to team up with players for the competitive or the non-competitive play? (They are similar story lines, but the mechanics are a bit different and the competitive play gives you point rewards for keeping to the daily post rate.)

Anyone interested in the non-competitive bracket? It's enticing and currently empty for a team or two to call their own.

(still accepting applications?)

Hi there,

I would like to participate, but it may just be me.
I am willing to play competitive or non-competitive, as is necessary.

Cheers!
