NEW QUEST COMING UP!
« on: July 02, 2007, 01:02:00 PM »
Get ready, racers!

just a few minor tidbits to work out tonight. Very soon, the new Citadel Challenge will be posted here!

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.

The Five in One Challenge.

The time to honor yourself will soon be at an end...Highness--Russ Crowe, Gladiator

The idea behind this Quest is to use five random submissions and craft one masterpiece from them. The point is to celebrate some of the forgotten posts of the past, dredge up favorites, and highlight your peers and colleagues' works.

Rules

- Thou shall not use any of your own submissions.

-Thou shall have 1.5 months to craft your 5in1 submission. Yes, multiples are allowed. You cannot begin, until the Quest is officially posted on the main site (any hour now).

- The Five shall be picked randomly, ideally with the aid of Murometz, who will gladly generate them for you. However, those impatient of you may choose and contact any Citadelian of your preference, who shall thence produce them for you - the 'Random Submission' link on pretty much any page of the main Citadel being a good source. Refresh and enjoy.

- The chosen submissions shall not have a higher vote score than "4.5". Even the seemingly less perfect submissions deserve love and companionship. Please, help them shine!
 
- (Optional) A sixth submission may be generated if you so desire, to swap it with another that you desire less.


Other than these guidelines, anything goes. The person who wins the Quest, will be awarded a set of customized Citadel-dice in addition to the usual laurels!

Please ask questions here if you have any.

We can still add the '5in1' freetext, but I think that's it already.

Now go and post it finally. :)

One final note. Despite the fact that we're using 5 subs, PLEASE dont write an epic novel, if you can help it. Thank you.

Question: Are we allowed to use more than 5 subs? What if someone wanted to throw in another sub they liked (or fit well), or got a sub that was part of something bigger? Just wondering, thanks.

Of course.

Scrasamax has already nicely demonstrated, how a connection to a larger theme can be used, and it would be foolish to restrict people to little if more is possible. I would put it this way, the submission has to be based on the Five - anything above is okay.


Just watch the length of the final work. :)

Is there a maximum word count or something to use as a guideline?
