I wanted to see if I could complete an RPG in under five hours. I somehow did.

Heh.

 

Aside from the fact that I originally got the idea for Spirits of the Ice a contest ago, this version of it was completed in about two and a half hours, total time.

Hmm. Still enough time left to write an RPG...

 

...

 

Just kidding of course, but that would be interesting to test out.

 

Again, good luck to everyone. And remember everyone, vote where your heart tells you. But if your heart doesn't tell you Spirits of the Ice,  Gangs of Metru-Nui , and The Legend of the Thirteenth Isle, then [REDACTED]

Spirits of the Ice, Gangs of Metru Nui, and Legend of the Thirteenth Isle are the best picks. No, seriously; picking them will leave you with a nice warm feeling inside. And you'll get a free teddy bear.

Yeah, leave it pretty much blank to start with. Sorry about not making that clearer in the RPG description; I guess I should add a 'Commonly Asked Questions' section or something, in the event that I make it into the Top Three.

The results on the preliminary polls so far look depressingly similar to the results of elections in tinpot dictatorships.

 

Hopefully there's at least gonna be a race of sorts going on in the final.

Hey, you could have tracked down the family of every member that frequents the RPG forum in order to force them to vote under duress but you dragged your heels and let me get away with doing exactly tha-er I mean yeah sure hope the competition actually picks up in the final poll. Now lets all get back to enjoying the time we have with our families who are all completely and perfectly safe. For now

Let's also not forget that we have the new three-week rule for inactive RPGs. It is completely possible that we will get to see four RPGs played this season, what with four months to play them in, and given that only four of the last thirteen RPGs have still been active at the end of their allotted times. Ouch.  :confused:

To be fair, all the RPGs could make it to the very end with that three-week rule. But at the same time, it explicitly says in the original post for this topic that there will only be 3 winners. Sure, they'll last for four months now instead of three - but still only three winners.

 

Really, if we could have four winners, there'd be pretty much no point at all in going to the final round of voting, as things stand.

They could, but I think it's unlikely. Yes, we have four months now. Four whole months in which the three that come top in the polls have to keep going if they want to keep their place. Since most can't even do that for three, I wouldn't be at all surprised if we played four games.

 

Here's another statistic: we have not had a contest on the new forums (that's as far back as I've been keeping track) when at least one of the winning games has not died before its time. Unless it turns out that we get more sustained activity for this contest than ever before, that fourth-placed game will get played. The final poll will be a matter of which ones get to start first.

If we're going that far back, we might also add, "Remember when you had to know a small degree HTML in order to format your posts?"

 

Those were the days. :P

 

EDIT: I'll add that already knowing BZP formatting made the HTML section of my computers class incredibly easy to pick up.

Honestly, no. Then again maybe it was just a first place thing. I think I've only ever been second or third.

Eh, they're really not. There's only two going right now, with only one of those being really active. There's no big hype going in the planning topic either, when there used to be three or four up for discussion that really got people going
