The RPG Critics Club

-=-

Welcome to the first RPG Critics Club! As many of you who make RPGs may notice, reviews are often scanty, and in depth ones even fewer. Because of this deplorable fact, I have formed the first critics club for RPGs.

Requesting reviews

Please only request a review for one of your drafts/concepts at once.

We will currently only accept five submissions. When they are reviewed, more can be submitted.

We are right now accepting reviews

Author name: (list your name here)

RPG name: (list the name of your RPG, if it has one)

RPG form: (concept, work in progress, completed)

RPG Link: (Provide a link to your RPG. We only review works in the planning topic, or the submissions topics.)

Please be civil: if you request a review, do not badger the reviewer about when he/she will review it, etc. Doing such could quite easily lead to your review request being denied. Do not pressure the reviewer as to what type of review you want etc.

If you are not satisfied with your review, don’t post a complaint in the topic. PM either the reviewer, or one of the club leaders, and we will work it out. All reviews will be checked by a club leader, and we will contact a critic if their review is not up to standard.

Critics

If you wish to apply as a critic, PM me, and provide a review you have written, so I can ascertain your ability to review.

-Review quality-

Each critic is required to provide an in depth review of the RPG he is assigned to. Granted, reviewing every word in the RPG does not have to be reviewed, but a review along the lines of ‘awesome RPG, sounds really good. 10/10’ will not be accepted. reviews must be delivered within seven days of the request. if you are unable to review, let me know.

A good insight on the right form of reviewing can be found in a blog entry of Nikira's (credits to the SSCC for pointing this out originally).

The RPG most likely would be reviewed in the review topic for contest entries, and the planning topic for others. However, if you wanted to keep your RPG a secret, yet stil;l have it reviewed, I'm sure we'd be able to arrange something.

Ehh, I think via PM. in this case, unless the requester wishes their RPG to remain completely secret, the finished review should also be sent to me.

Zarayna, Lloyd, not Zoma. And for right now, I think we'll stick to just BRPGs.Anyways, I reviewed DR a while back.We're currently waiting on EW, and Spawn's reviews now. And technically, you guys are about two/three weeks late.

Let me guess, there's no space between the two words?So is it a no review, maybe review, or probably review situation? If EW is unable to review, I'll have to take BaR.

No, I'm perfectly willing and able to review it in private, which I will do; I asked ToD if he still wanted it despite the fact that BaR is a winning game. Best to strike the game from the waiting list.

All right, guys, I really am sorry for letting this slip. Of the review cycle, Spawn has yet to get his in, but I'm just going to say this, we ARE accepting reviews.

I am Ultron Six, a cybernetic intelligence created by Doctor Henry Pym. My imperative is to bring peace and order to this world. I am about to fulfil that imperative; for the extinction of humanity…begins now.

the_ultron_imperative.jpg

Soon the earth will no longer be habitable for any biological organism: Man, woman, child, plant, animal, fungus or bacterium. All life will cease to exist. This is not a threat, there is nothing you can do to stop it. The process has already begun. I receive no pleasure in this, it is simply the only solution. There must be peace and order, the end of life on earth will ensure that. Goodbye.
