2012-05-09 Commenting As I Go (1PDC)


I’m currently reading through the One Page Dungeon Contest 2012 submissions and just finished #21. It takes a while!

I’m just one of the judges and we don’t have an agreed upon list of criteria. I’m hoping this will better reflect the breadth of our hobby. Based on an earlier blog post, I prepared a list of things I would be looking for:

As you will notice from the list above, I’m not a big friend of random dungeon generators and mini-games. Maybe some of the other judges are?

Ok, given all the above, which of the entries are looking good? Here’s what I’m liking so far. All of these entries got five points from the above list.

And now I’m going back to reading some more!



Some other things I noticed:

  • more ants, snails and slimes than last year! 👌
  • less undead than last year! 👌
  • a strange shift from dungeon generators (a mini-game for the game master) to mini-games for the entire table
