Getting back to this…
This is exactly the spirit behind this idea.
Sure, a competition like this might be fun for its own sake. But it’s really about going back in time. We’d be recreating what might be the only aspect of RPGs to be truly extinct. In a way, it would be like role-playing that we were role-playing … 35 years ago.
Somehow, that idea seems strangely appealing.
[quote=“GJsoft”]Are you up for upping the stakes? If our group wins, you’ll tell me the truth about “Columbia” (I’m still not buying the alien explanation. It has a few holes).
If we lose, I’ll never complain ever again.

Oh, I’m always up for raising stakes…
(Holes? What holes? I thought the explanantion was pretty convincing…)
[quote=“Darthbinks”]So are you, -H- and Alrik, dming the first one?
Maybe I will be part of the next dm-team, if we make a second run.

Well, I wouldn’t want to draft poor Alrik into a whole bunch of work based on one throwaway remark
(Besides, then winning might simply be a case of playing with the more forgiving DM.)
which system are you considering? Something Action Castle like, or something more in the direction of old school D&D (which would be the go-to choice for full historical recreation I reckon )?[/quote]
I think Alrik’s Action Castle idea is actually very clever. It’s essentially free of luck, can be DM-ed pretty objectively … seems like the perfect candidate for a competition. The only thing I’d be worried about is that some of the things that are hilarious when playing casually might just be frustrating when playing against the clock, and that such a light and fun might not fit well into a competitive context. Hmm.
I think that would be interesting (and actually have an idea or two of that nature in mind), but probably more for the gaming potential than as an actual tournament. Hmm again.
You’re laughing now…
Anyway, since the concept makes GJ, at least, giddy and happy, let’s try to make it happen. I’m thinking about teams of three - once we get a couple of teams together, we’ll be good to go.
Good luck, everyone!
