No, I am barred from this event as I live in Québec in Canada. Tough luck...
It's only open to Americans?

That's a change: the setting-design contest was, if memory serves, at the very least open to Canadians (or else I wouldn't have bothered sending my entry in) as well and might have been worldwide.

DEFCON 1

Dunno if I will or won't. I have no illusions that any of my stuff is meant to make money, so the fact that I'm "giving away my time and energy" doesn't bother me. Doing D&D stuff is fun, regardless of the venue or the audience that is receiving it. But I'm also mainly an improv DM who takes established product and then improvises around it, so actually making my own stuff is not something I necessarily enjoy doing. The fact that it is only 1,000 words makes it easier... but the fact I only have 3 days makes the decision tougher.

It's really going to come down to what the first project it and how much fun I think I'd have doing it, and if I can find the time to make something I'm happy with. So we'll see.

It is opened for almost everyone save Quebequers. The reasons is the contests must follow Quebec's laws on contests and gambling and it is quite an hassle for a company to open such... any contests for Quebequers because of those laws. If I lived in Ontario, or any other provinces of Canada, I could participate without any trouble.

Well, at least you get free healthcare and drug prescriptions!

I might but honestly my big hang up is I don't know if I'll have time. The three days given to submit the write up happen to be three days where I will work (at least) 8 hours and have to run my own game. While it would be interesting to put my hat in and see what happens it takes a lower priority then running a game for my players that I already committed to.
 





On the most recent episode of Dragon Talk, Shelley said they had gotten "hundreds and hundreds" of entries. So either far fewer people entered than I expected or, more realistically, they used software to cull everyone who wasn't using the Xanathar's format in their entry.

Probably they got fairly few entries: the whole set-up is a bit intimidating, particularly with the final public performance.

Yeah, I was interested when I first heard about this but nope'd out the second I heard about the live streamed game. I'm sure that cut wayyy down on entries.
I was cool with the livestream but the fact the first entry was a trap blew my remaining inspiration out the window.

Out of anything that could have been fun or interesting, they chose to have us design a trap? No thanks.

I definitely agree it was the trap that scared people away; not only does it have to be a trap, it has to be formatted like it is in Xanathar's, which I decent amount of DM's would be completely unfamiliar with.

I even own Xanathar's and had to look up the trap format they were talking about, as it doesn't really show up in other books at all.

Honestly, that was a stroke of genius: start with something obscure and hard.
