Iron DM is a glorified writing contest for Dungeon Masters....I think it started out as a Rat Bastard DM Club event in 2002? Contestants are given a list of ingredients, a word count, and 48 hours, and must write an adventure that uses them all. It's challenging, but it's also a lot of fun. (And it's a great way to sharpen your creative writing skills, while getting some free written adventures from the other contestants.)

I've participated in a few of them, and I emcee'd the 2010 one, but I've never won. The official write-up is here.

I entered one of the early ones and went near the top. I remember cat, basket, cliffside and some other stuff were components I had to use.

Didn't get me any Storyhour viewers :(

Mad jack is simultaneously still alive and still dead as he is really and not really in my computer.

After listening to Depeche Mode I came up with a new adventure idea.

A high level cleric with 12 acolytes travels the countryside performing "miracles". A problem arises when he heals people 3 days later they turn into zombies. One of the acolytes is willing to betray the cleric. One of the acolytes could be an earth subtype.

So what system? Pathfinder, perchance?

Yup. I tried multi quote, but it didn't seem to work.

Probably. I really like 1st ed. I don't know D&D 5th ed very well. Pathfinder 2nd ed. is too new. I don't have anything on it yet except the beta material.

The last song inspired adventure was done using 4th ed. only because it's what I had on hand at the time. The one thing I like about it, was that the monster manual gave encounter suggestions. Other lesser or equal creatures to pair with the monster you were looking at. I wonder if that carried over to 5th.

Just curious, anyone know why I said one might be earth subtype?

John 1:42, Jesus says: "You are Simon son of Jona, you shall be called Cephas" (meaning a stone).

(Alluding to Peter being the cornerstone of the earthly Church.)

That's right. I thought it would be a clever allusion to the story. One of them would be an actual rock, so to speak.
