Once upon a time, tournaments were a key part of the role-playing scene, attracting large crowds and spawning several of D&D’s most iconic scenarios. Several years ago, we decided to recreate this tradition by running a tournament of our own. The first one seemed to go over well, and it’s since turned into an annual tradition.
In previous RPGV tournaments, players have woken vampires, stared down beholders, befriended dragons, sailed the seas as undead pirates until the ends of time, and found many a salty solution to perplexing problems, all in an attempt to emerge as champion.
This time, things might actually get a little bit difficult …
If you’re ready to face a new set of challenges, please sign up in this thread. We’ll be playing on Oct. 13 & 20. Just let me know on which day(s) you’re able to play (each party will only play on one date), how early you can arrive at Spielbar, and also whether you have to leave early.
The tournament is open to everyone. No experience with D&D, tournaments or even role-playing games of any nature required.
I waken from my slumber for this important event.
Both dates are fine as long as I know a bit in advance. I’ll arrive as early as I need, just lemme know!
The reigning champions must be knocked off their throne!
Dice, pencil and paper are all you’ll need. (If somebody can’t bring their own, there ought to be enough floating around for everyone.)
Additionally, I’ll again be asking one person in each group to act as timekeeper. In the past, this has been a tremendous help in keeping things running smoothly.
No rulebooks, please.
As for preparation, none whatsoever is required, although past tournaments have seen everything from players trawling the Web for published tournaments* to devising full-fledged DM behavior modification programs. (And by ‘players,’ I mean GJ.)
Seriously, though no prep or special gear required. Just come as you are.**
It’s an original scenario. You won’t find it online, so don’t waste your time. Burgling my place might work, though.
** Good to see you again, Darth.
