It's probably no surprise to long-time readers that I am inordinately fond of contests, challenges, and blood sports in general. Sneer with your comic-opera oily mustache at “crowd-sourcing” all you want, but you can't cover up the fact that real energy and creativity can be generated in the process. Curses, the masses, in fact, are not asses.
So here's to another round, this one not surprisingly springing from my tongue-in-cheek efforts yesterday to produce a cliché-driven module name generator.
Goal: Design an adventure for an older edition D&D or mash-up equivalent using said name generator.
Rules: You must use the first result from your roll on the chart—alternately contestants can use this scurrilous rip-off chart. May the Furies hound with their blood-curdling screeches and barbed whips those who roll again or fudge the results to fit their preconceived notions of creative agenda.
The one-page dungeon design template can be used (found here courtesy of our friend who rode away into the sunset on his hawg) , but is not required. Adventures can be of any length, though brevity is close to godliness.
Bonus Points: Clever inversion, subversion, and/or glorification of favored D&D trope or cliché.
Deadline: Saturday, September 24, high noon Central U.S. Time.
First Prize Award: $10 credit on Lulu.
Entries should be emailed to me at kutalik at the gmail dot com.
