This year I'm totally going to write a CYOA for NaNoWriMo.

Jackasses? You let a whole column get stalled and strafed on account of a couple of jackasses? What the hell's the matter with you?

And we're up to 8 entries! With 3 weeks to go! We might yet get up above the 17 entries from two years ago!

Hey, if you're a designer and you haven't, yet, please go post up your game rules file to the RPG Item page. They're all linked above in the 2nd post of this thread.

And uploaded! I had to wait until I was home from work to upload the file.

For the first time since the very first year I joined this contest I've made a game that was longer than one page! surprise

I had a similar idea (or rather just writing in plenty of story chunks that can be tidied and sorted into a gamebook or paragraph game later).

What if you use your 24-Hour RPG as the basis for your NaNoWriMo story? That way, it's not a distraction or "one more thing on your plate." It's writing prep for something you've already committed to, and preparing for a big project is the responsible thing to do.

With 8 entries already, and a little less than three weeks to go in the contest we're having a good response this year. That means it's unlikely that I'll be extending the submission deadline. (In years past I've done so because we've been thin on submissions.)

Don't wait until the last minute. Submissions will close on November 12th!

Solo-playing a campaign made via your 24-hour Rpg entry and online tools (/r/1d100 tables, name generators, map generator)... that’s actually a pretty solid idea.

Didn't say I got down the road, more like laying in the ditch right now.

I am committing to submitting an entry this year, just no idea when I will do it in the next 19 days. But it's coming!

Now I just need to turn off my brain until I have time to come up with an idea.

I have an idea!

... not so much as an idea, as a system.

... not so much as a system, as a mechanic.

... not so much as a mechanic, as a handfeel I want for when you grab a handful of dice.

And I don't have a day off work to write for another 10 days or so...

I'm going to be getting this one just under the wire. o_o

And finished just before noon today. Well, not *really* finished, it's incomplete, but finished as far as the contest is concerned.

Submitted, whew!

I didn't roll the dice but the library of hashtag congress listing for The Weave would include:

#Paragons
#Weird
#Mythology


Edit: oh balls! There's a card driven RPG called Weave. Too late to change it now cry

Yeah, I found out that my (already terrible) title, 'fortune's favoured?', was also the name of a film. I should have just gone with 'Quote Utilising Interprative aNd Collaborative Experience' (QUINCE, one of the greatest fruits) or some-such.

We've got less than two weeks remaining in the contest, and we're up to 10 entries. Lovely.

If you've got an idea, send it in! Time is running short.

I didn't roll the dice either, and only now that I read your post am I looking up what I would have had. Easy for the first and third element:

#Travellers
#5th - 10th Century

But the second element could have been any of:

#Duty,
#Honour,
#Hope

I've actually done that one in real life. It was worth it to stop New Hampshire winter from leaking into my bedroom.
