    My condolences to you and your family, Wicht. Have a safe trip and don't worry about the less important things. The judgement can wait. Might even build suspense. (I probably won't even get a chance to read any of them until I get back from my own trip, anyway.) Anyways, again, I hope you and yours are doing well.

    Wicht, Iron Sky, Lwaxy, and Deuce Traveler: I'll be going on a trip next week, so I'll either need to start the next match by Monday, or I'll have to wait until Tuesday the 25th (at the earliest).

    By the way, Wicht, I notice that you've removed the clause we've had for a couple of tournaments that asks contestants not to remove their entries after the tournament ends. Is that intentional?

    Wicht and Deuce Traveler, if you both can start at 6:00 PM Eastern Time, please confirm and I will do my best to post ingredients for your match at that time. I likely will not be able to post much before or after that time tonight, until 10ish, maybe. If you both would rather start then, please let me know.

    Of course, it does mean one of you former champs definitely won't make it to the second round. Stakes are high! When it's Iron DM, the stakes are always high. Wicht - Let's dance.

    Hey, MortalPlague, you should have a championship badge sitting in your inventory (with the other exclusive badges, like the wall-defender one?). I mean, I'm not exactly sure where it can be found, having never received one, but maybe Wicht can help you out with that. Also, on the subject of the word-counts: Yeah, even Vaxalon's winning entry in the exhibition match against me was in the 785 words. Should be a decent challenge. Good luck y'all. I can't wait to see what we get!

    If you are willing to spend the money, there is always the Formula D Board Game, and its expansions. Nice idea Wicht. I might be able to take the image of one of their maps and deck it out with some sci-fi bling. Thanks!

  • 04:59 PM - Simon T. Vesper quoted Wicht in post Looking for Advanced Role-Playing Content
    What is your idea of a good playing experience? Without knowing this, it is impossible to engage you in a meaningful way regarding this idea of an "advanced" game. I disagree. You could begin by defining your objective or purpose for the game. From there, you can give examples of how you might apply knowledge, skill or complexity, all with an eye toward progressing your game toward your objective. Even if you accept that there are many different objectives for the game ~ each of equal value ~ some of which contradict or conflict with each other ~ you can explain each (or as many as you prefer) within the context of the terms provided. The purpose of a role-playing game is for the player to create a character and immerse himself in the GM's world. Total immersion is the desired end-state. However, because we know we're playing a game, we cannot maintain total immersion for long periods of time. But if we approach other aspects of the game with this goal in mind, understanding t...
  • 03:47 PM - Simon T. Vesper quoted Wicht in post Looking for Advanced Role-Playing Content
    The problem here is the use of the word "advanced," which it turns out, is meaningless, because you have no set destination in mind as to where an advanced game will take us. Personally, I have an idea of the preferred end-state. For the purpose of our discussion, however, I'm willing to accept other ideas. I am not sure that there is such a thing as an "advanced" game... Any activity, hobby, job, pursuit, profession, etc., can be said to be advanced if we apply the effort necessary to make it so. ... the goal of the game is simply "fun," or "enjoyment." If the game produces a fun, memorable experience, then I think it succeeds, regardless of the complexity, or lack thereof. Again, I defer to those who are better educated and more informed than myself on the topic of "fun." But the rub is, that which constitutes fun is going to change from group to group, and even within a single group, that which consitutes fun might change from session to session. Which is another reason that we...
  • 01:26 PM - Simon T. Vesper quoted Wicht in post Looking for Advanced Role-Playing Content
    I think you are wanting graphs and charts to provide versimilitude, but at times it sounds like you might be wanting something a little different. I think the discussion involving encounter tables took us that direction. Charts and graphs are useful because they can be placed in a program which can automate the process. This automation means we can increase the complexity of our game; we can apply the knowledge we have available to us; but of course, all of this is just mental masturbation unless we have a clearly defined goal or end-state. That said, we don't need to keep focusing on "graphs and charts" as the only example of advanced play. The problem is that you are using words assuming a definition... Yes. That's what people do when they communicate. The difference is that I've provided a definition and I'm asking if it's acceptable as-is. ... Progress means movement towards a destination, but not necessarily clarifying what destination you are wanting so as to make t...

    Way back in 2002, it was a Saturday, and I asked... It might be interesting to find out what traditions people have made for themselves with this holiday we created... In my family, we try to make the time to play a game, either an RPG or a longish thematic boardgame but, since it is GM's day, the family lets me pick the game. Also, my wife has baked me a cake a time or two for the day. I may have got presents too a couple of years. We had a great day today at Lake Geneva Games with food, fun and prizes. And Ernie even stopped by to lend his support to Shane who was running Gaxmoor. And Excellent day! https://www.facebook.com/LakeGenevaGames/ 81706

    The judges have conspired to create what we think is a very nice little list of ingredients... So, we are set for Deuce Traveler and Rune to get that match-up Rune has been wanting... Shall we say tomorrow, sometime between 1 and 2 p.m. EST. If that is agreeable to you both, go ahead and give your consent, and that will be the plan. Works for me.

  • 07:47 PM - LongGoneWriter quoted Wicht in post Iron DM 2016 (The Complete Game Thread!)
    I want to reiterate that the improvement I saw from the first entry by LongGone and his second was extreme, in my estimation, and I think if he sticks around and tries again next year, he has as good a chance as anyone. You can bet your sweet cans I'll be back next year. Razzafrazzin' word count razzafrazzin' not reading the rules clarification razzafrazz. Actual hats off time to DT. Let me know if anything like this happens any other time of the year, I had a lot of fun.

    Rereading, it was Gradine who suggested noon, EST. It is possible Deuce was already gone by then and did not know when on Wednesday it would be. I would give him today, at least, to check in some time before rushing to replace him. If he is not online by sometime tomorrow, then we can start talking alternates. But, in the meantime, @Slit518, if you want to check in to let us know you are around as an alternate. And failing that, I think I saw @Waylander the Slayer lurking somewhere in the vicinity. I'm sorry, I've been busy the past few days. It was my wife's birthday on the 6th, and we had her party last night. Did you still need an alternate?
  • 04:59 PM - steeldragons quoted Wicht in post Iron DM 2016 (The Complete Game Thread!)
    In fairness, all the entries are supposed to be providing a synopsis. It's even in the rules. I do sometimes think that people forget this (judges are sometimes guilty too). Yes. Of course you're right. But what is read and expected (by most contestants and many judges) seems to be "Write an adventure." I'm simply suggesting the "focus" (for lack of a better word, I guess) on Round I could be the "sketchy" outline idea - in 750 words. That's just the first thing that came to mind. You could, maybe/instead, simplify it by using less than 6 elements in Round 1. Start with 4. Then 6 in Round II, and you still get to 8 in Round III! I'm just throwing my vote into the ring that I agree/concur/think 750 is too low. I'd vote [if we were voting] to raise it to 1,000 words. I think that's plenty constraining and would -no doubt in my case- still require a lot of thought and editing/paring down. If it stays [by consensus or desire] 750, simplify the Round by some other means. That's all I'm sugge...
  • 03:42 PM - LucasC quoted Wicht in post Iron DM 2016 (The Complete Game Thread!)
    There are valid reasons for the 750 words, but that does not make critiques of the rules unwelcome and none of the rules are set in stone for next year. I think the 750 limit is good. Really forces you to be concise and creative. 6 ingredients, 12 really if you count the adjective that goes with each is about 3 too many to my thinking. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  • 02:12 AM - Rune quoted Wicht in post Iron DM 2016 (The Complete Game Thread!)
    Gradine - remind me to tell you the story of the ghost dryad in the mast sometime. :) Ooo. That's a good one! Your entry was very good, and I hope the frustrations don't keep you from trying again. Echoed. Per the word count, I know that Rune and I and whoever else helps us hammer out these things want to know the parts of the rules that the majority of contestants feel could use some change. There are valid reasons for the 750 words, but that does not make critiques of the rules unwelcome and none of the rules are set in stone for next year. If the first round seems like an exceptional challenge, that's exactly the point. Round 1 is designed to test the limits of the contestants' discipline and problem-solving creativity and execution. Round 1 isn't supposed to be a challenge; it's supposed to be a stress-test. On a <calmer> review, I think I can see the problem a little clearer, in that I was a little too cute by half in sprinkling the significance of the clock too ...

    I would count it in the word count. It is providing information about the expectations of the adventure. Likewise, as a couple of us found out the hard way last year, any descriptions accompanying the word list also count against word count. Figured as much. The low word count in Round 1 is definitely a bit of a puzzle. You really have to prioritize sections (down to specific descriptors, some times) to make sure you're providing the most important, valuable information, while also still creating a whole piece that flows well and reads coherently. Deciding what to sacrifice (and how) was the hardest part. And the thing with the ingredient lists was especially brutal. It seemed to be you used to be able to take for granted your ability to explain, however briefly, your ingredient usage. Now it's gotta be clear, which isn't always easy for the more abstract ingredients. Anyway, congrats to LGW on a hard-won round! I'm excited to see what everyone else is able to come up with (and excited to...
  • 12:49 AM - Gradine quoted Wicht in post Iron DM 2016 (The Complete Game Thread!)
    Yes and no. We are open to adventures belonging to any system, and high-fantasy is the default, but we have had adventures for any number of systems. As I said, just stating a system provides expectational constraints on the reader and grounds it somewhat. When using a minimum of words, such as here, broad strokes that provide deliniation and assumed details can be a benefit to the writer. As a point of curiosity; typically there has been a byline or subtitle that signifies the system and the expected level; e.g; "A high fantasy D&D 5e adventure for 4-5 6th level adventurers"). Would such a byline be considered part of the title, and thus exempt from the word limit? Or would it need to be counted?

    We will consider you as an alternative if you want. Hang around and if a participant declares they can't do it, alternatives take their place. Alright, sounds good. Just let me know a day ahead of time if possible.
