    We're keeping it relatively short and sweet and traditional.

    1) 72 Hour Time limit. Match 1 will conclude/story must be posted by 8am EST on Monday, March 12.

    2) NO EDITING once you've posted your story.

    3) No using the pictures as "pictures." They should envision a relevant element of your story.

    4) We are not enforcing a word limit. We ask that you shoot for around 2-3,000. These are supposed to be short stories.

    5) We are not enforcing any "genre" limitations. If the story fits as something that could be played in an existing RPG of whatever genre, then it's fair game.

    6) No arguing with the judges' decisions. We will be happy to discuss our critiques with you, long as you keep it civil. Thanks.

    7) Judging will include the following criteria: Writing Style & Skill (spelling, grammar and use of language will be included here among other things); Use of the Photo Elements (did you use them all? how creatively?); and "Personal Enjoyment" (basically, was it an enjoyable read? did we like it?). So you will want to keep those in mind when creating your entries.

    Let the games begin!

    Good luck Phoamslinger!

    Spoiler:
    As a side bet, how many posts will it take for @steeldragons to get my username right?

    EDIT: Anyone who said, "Zero, because he's going to go back and fix them while I'm typing up this witty spoiler block", wins!

    Quick questions: How will the beginning of daylight savings time effect matches that it falls during? (8 AM EST Friday to 8 AM EST Monday is actually only 71 hours.)

    Will we even be doing concurrent matches? (If so, I'm ready to go.)

    Ready.

    My $0.02. It works better for the judges if you stagger things by a day or two. Good judging is hard, and it usually takes a couple/few days to get all the judge feedback for a single match. If you don't stagger things, you end up falling behind quickly. Then you end up reading entries from multiple matchups at the same time, which makes it harder to think of the stories as 'sets of two' and judge accordingly.

    Thanks Rodrigo, we're discussing staggering right now. We're just waiting on one of our judges to chime in so we can make a group decision. Stay tuned.

    However, the first match is locked and loaded and I take it that both you and Rune are checked in and ready as well?

    Thanks,
