Took Wednesday off work, and went from 1 AM Wednesday, to 1 AM Thursday morning. It's pretty stunning how much I had to delete and triage just to finish. I have a whole appendix of "Stuff I wish I'd added".

I started at 8AM and went until approximately 4AM.. i was REALLY winding down at that point and starting to make mistakes that i was having to fix so i finished up what i had and stopped.. I cant imagine actually working on it for 24 hours straight.. the 20 hours i did with few/no breaks nearly destroyed me

also starting at 1AM seems really difficult.. i tip my hat to you

I paid imaginary currency for you to read this. Let's both appreciate this moment....

I meant to get up early on Wednesday and start, but I started thinking about the setting and mechanics around 1 AM, and just decided to start taking notes. I slept from 3 till 8 at least, and started again in earnest when I woke. Did my last grammar and formatting pass right before the timer clicked.

And I just noticed a pretty big error on my character sheet. Whoa.

Yeah, reading your work after can be a bit sobering. I left mine for a week and then did a fresh review. Found one sentence that states almost the exact opposite of what it means, but perhaps will be obvious from context. I know when I'm reading them I'm a lot more interested in the overall ideas than any specific small errors.

Okay, it's 11:30 am and I'm starting mine.

As I said earlier, it's really only going to be a token effort (I really want to build my 40K Ork Battlewagon today too), so is unlikely to be as detailed as last years Naked in Space (Bare Nekkid Edition).

Right now I'm 5.5 hours in and still enjoying myself. Only a bit sad that it will not be the most aesthetically pleasing game, but I reckon that's not a uncommon feeling...

EDIT: Officially given up. Was a funny attempt but I'm feeling an incredible lack of motivation to try any longer. Oh well, maybe next year!

Rules Question. Can we use art that we have previously created? Its mine, and i drew it for something else, but I think that it works here. And its just to make things look pretty. We can use creative commons, and public domain art, and i own the rights to my own artwork......

This is entirely my opinion, I'm just another entrant in this contest, so the call isn't mine.

The contest rules imply that all the work is to have been done within the 24 hours. It is explicit about writing and rules design. It also allows public domain art.

To me the implication would be that if you had previously published a piece of art into the public domain/creative commons of yours that you now wanted to use, it would probably be okay, provided it was out there somewhere that another contestant could reasonably find and use it as well. If it is just prior work I'd think it best not to.

This mostly just reflects my inclination is to take a hard line on these sorts of questions (see my note above) just to avoid future can of worms. I also like opening the file and being impressed that every bit of what is contained therein was invented, written or researched in such a short time period.

Nothing wrong with that. Based on other post comments I'm sure there are at least a couple that are close to the 25 page mark. My entry ended up being about two pages for each hour within the 24 hour time frame I actively worked on it...

The art is out there, its on my deviant art page.

and the fact that art can be used at all that is in the public, and creative commons domain, means that people are including things that have not been created in the last 24 hours. which seems out of the spirit of things, if you are going to go that hard line.

as for what i want to use, its been on my deviant art account for a few years, and its art i did for the cover of a novel that i wrote. very much not for this. at all.

It sounds like it's already out there, so go for it!

Same here. Not that there is all that much art in my submission nor is it of any real quality.

I have sketched out the rules. Now I just need to fill in some minor details, make a ton of examples and try to make it look not awful.

I'm done writing, and out of energy for making it look not awful. Okay, maybe it doesn't look awful, just dead boring.

I'm sending it in now anyway.
