…to find out who the winner is, or check here on The Free RPG Blog.

What are the rules?

Apart from the list above, you must obey the 24 hour RPG rules. The judge’s decision is final. £30 will be in Amazon vouchers, emailed to you.

I want the £30 to pay my D&D habit! What is it judged on?

Poor you! Our panel of monkeys will be judging you on:

  • Must include an NPC called Keeton
  • Proximity: How close to the two films is it?
  • Complete: Is it complete? Could you run it?
  • Attractive: Is it attractive to look at?
  • Professional: How much effort went into layout and style?
  • Extras: Did they include actual cover, index, character sheet or any other cool things you get in a proper RPG?

I’m late to this party!

That’s a shame, we might run another competition soon. If you wrote a 24 hour RPG but didn’t get it in before 00:00 GMT 1st June 2011 then we’d still like to see it.

I want to do it again!

Enjoyed it so much that you want another go? Are you bonkers? Yes? Then please do! Have another go. Enter as many times as you like! I’m not paying for the therapy you might need at the end of it, though. 😉
