I am starting the clock, thanks to this joke which escalated. My only issue, of course, is that I've both played and run Austen-esque games using existing systems and as systemless freeforms, so I'm struggling to work out what distinct stories I'd want to tell, to make a game which supports those. So whether it ends up as an actual entry, or just a waste of a day when I should be doing study, we will see.

well may you cackle. This is almost entirely your fault.

And it's happening, I've decided to do something with a (I sincerely hope turns out to be) strong PbF optimisation as its USP.

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?

Austen: The Promenading has been received and submitted to the database. Post is updated. That makes 11 entries with about a week to go.

If you've authored a contest submission and have not yet done so, please go to the entry for your game and submit the rules to the files page. If you don't, I will next week.

Also: It's totally kosher to read, evaluate, and play these games. (Even in play-by-forum format here on the 'Geek.) We only ask that you refrain from writing reviews until after the contest ends. Session reports are okay.

I'm not amazingly happy with it, but that could just be in comparison to my last entry. But the last time I did this comp I had no child, and literally spent 21 out of my 24 hours awake, hyped up on sugar, and working solidly on the game. This time... I did not. I had to submit it when I did because I could not see how to carve out another half an hour of computer time uninterrupted with the 24 hour time slot. I'm just grateful I made that joke title up on a preschool day.

Just to be clear, these are RPGs, not RPG items, right? That is, it needs to be separate game playable on its own and not an adventure/supplement/whatever for an existing RPG, right?


Just as an FYI to everyone: I put a reminder on my calendar for April 1st for this contest. When 4/1/19 rolls around I'll start up a new one for a 24 hour supplement contest. (Because really, I have too much GeekGold.)

And now I, too, have an idea off of the QOTD. But (a) I'm running the contest and (b) I have no time.

Le sigh.

Do it anyway!

Makes notes and tackle it when you do have time, nevermind the contest!

It has the last two years.

Or, better to say, it's expressed itself in different ways the last two years. Two years ago I spent a couple hours building a spreadsheet to automate the voting process. And then last year I had to remember what I'd done so I could update it for the new number of players.

So my first entry failed the 24-hour criteria. I was just In The Groove and I blew well past 24 hours, into 28, then I zonked out, and when I picked it up in the morning I added a few more pages, bringing me to like ~30 hours...

Well, it's a loss that's kind of a win anyways?

Thinking about this one last night, I wondered about copyright issues &c. If we start doing supplements for existing games, I don't know what the copyright issues are. (Obviously, anything for a d20 game is covered by the OGL, and anything for a game you personally made is kosher. But what about writing a Call of Cthulhu adventure? Or for the Star Wars setting?)

So, what do other folks think about that issue?

I think it's a non-issue. Most of our database is stuff just like that.

And we're up to twelve entries. Two reminders:

(1) It isn't an entry until it hits my email inbox.

(2) Contest closes on Tuesday. You've got this weekend.

So, what do other folks think about that issue?

If I'm making a supplement/alternate/additional adventure for an existing game, I usually state upfront that hey, you need a copy of the rules to use what I made (so that they still have to support the original game). But that's just me.

But then, I haven't made anything for Star Wars, and I'm not a lawyer, so I don't know how they deal with that...

What I have made tends to be supplements for The Quiet Year, Monster of the Week, DramaSystem, Fiasco, Lady Blackbird - most of which I think allow new content...

I have a Call of Cthulhu adventure I want to write up... perhaps I'll look into their rules for adventure creation.

CoC has the whole Miskatonic Repository thing going on right now. Chaosium is asking people to write and publish fan-stuff for the game! And Chaosium will even help (a little) to promote it.

And there's even this to help you with layout and art - Miskatonic Repository Creator Resource (well, maybe not to help you... but to help us non-artistic types). Oh, and this - The Miskatonic Collection
