icon A new order of things (+1)  
With the release of The City Beneath, and the huge flood of people trying to complete it, not to mention the tidal wave of those creating new level sets with the new features, have we forgotten some of the less serious uses for the DROD engine? Well I certainly haven't, and many others haven't either. We already have three RPG systems on the architecture board, and to commemorate it, and all other weird and wacky ideas out there, I give you...

A NEW ORDER OF THINGS!

This competition is very simple, so I'm going to keep the rule layout simple.

+ You need to create a new game system using the DROD 3.0 engine. Yes, that means you're not limited to RPG systems. It can be anything, but I can't emphasise the phrase 'game system' enough.
+ You can either work by yourself, or on a team. Be aware that if you work in a team (And if we can get some HAs to submit prizes), the prize will be divided evenly between you.
+ You are not limited in the number of features your entry has, let your imagination run wild!
+ You have until 1st May 4:00PM GMT. By this time, your entry must be submitted, or it will not be accounted for in the final vote.
+ Each team can have a maximum of three entries. You can upload as many as you like, but only the three you specify will be used in the final vote.
+ The voting poll will last for two weeks, meaning it will close, in theory, on 15th May 4:00PM GMT. At this time, the winners will be announced.

There currently aren't any prizes, but if a HA would contact me via PM, we can work something out. Have fun, and let your imaginations lead you.

-Pilchard VIII

As I said before, if the winner is only one person, I'll donate an item from the prize pile, because I have an eight-timer contest prize that I can use.

When you're done emphasizing it, can you define it?

I am actually producing it. It's going to have a fairly long tape, but not infinite, as there are no dynamic variable names, and thus I have to use the screen to keep track of which cell is active, preventing me from producing the "While" commands...

Under this, I could submit a DROD 'game system'.

I'm going to pull my eight-timer prize as the prize. A friend wants a copy of DROD, and I can use it.

Is there going to be a submuission topic of this or do we have to post the holds in here?

Here's the submission for Insane, SuperV (Vittro) and Timo006:

DROD: The RPG (Contest Final) 4.3MB

-Insane

EDIT: This submission is erroneous, as I can't export the lines of speech. Thus we cannot participate.

Due to an incidence of, in technical terms, everything being buggered up, the voting poll is being postponed until the official 3.0.2 release. That means you all get extra time to fix stuff or add entries.
