Competition Rules

Read the rules for our scenario-writing competition!

The Goal of our competition is to send us one RPG scenario – a minimum of 5000 words. The genre of the scenario and three ideas that must be included in the scenario will be supplied by IrishGaming.Com at the start of the competition – the writer may choose the exact game system.

The scenario must be written over a weekend – The requirements will go live on the Friday 3rd of July at 8pm and the deadline for submissions is Sunday 5th of July at 8pm.

The Prize

A €50 voucher and a trophy to be handed to the winner, the trophy to be handed back after one year to IrishGaming.Com. The IrishGaming.Com Friday update for one week to be dedicated to the winning entry, ideally with a photo of the winner to be displayed (but we understand that not everyone is photogenic, and not everyone wants to have their picture taken!)


  • The winner will be chosen by an independent judge (noted industry professional Gar Hanrahan) rather than by IrishGaming.Com – the judge’s decision will be final and binding.
  • Scenarios will be graded based on playability, originality, and readability.
  • The scenario must be a new one – not one that has ever been run at a games convention in Ireland.
  • The competition is open only to Irish writers (by which we mean writers who live in Ireland.)
  • The competition is closed to Nick Huggins, Noirin Curran and our independent judge.
  • All scenarios submitted for the competition will be made available for public download on IrishGaming.Com – copyright for these scenarios will remain with the original author.

    Am I missing something? 
    5,000 words, based on ingredients, to be written in ~3 days? NaNoWriMo doesn't ask for that much, and also doesn't ask for coherency.

    What's life without a challenge, eh? Actually, I think the target there is pretty comparable to NaNoWriMo in terms of wordcount. NaNoWriMo doesn't offer a prize, or a minute or two of Internet fame, either.

    A €50 Voucher for what? Looks like an interesting idea though, will give it a shot if the genre sparks anything.

    I'm afraid I won't be participating, but I'd be intrigued to see the results. 
    (I'm already doing an adventure/scenario for the One Month Fudge Adventure Challenge and I'm not going to get that finished, doubt I'd be able to finish one in 3 days!) 
    BTW Anyway to get notified of comment replies?

    I'd love to do this, but 3 days is waaaay too harsh for 5000 words.

    So when do we get to see the results?

    Looks like you need to enable some spam filters!

    2:25 Hi Gideon, please ansewr. I'm sorta confused.. if I purchase Leadplayer, do these buttons and features only work on my embedded videos on my blog? For example will the Clickable buttons or link buttons appear on my videos from my regular youtube channel or be featured on my website/blog only? Hope this makes sense.. Thank you! I'm a huge fan of yours by the way!
