icon 2016 Year of RPG (+1)  
2016 is the Year of RPG! This has already been said numerous times throughout the year by ... uh... well actually I think it was just me that said it but anyway the point is that making stuff for RPG is cool and fun! So let's do it!

Here are the rules!

* Make something in DROD RPG! It can be traditional, but doesn't have to be!

* To prevent overly large submissions and make things more manageable for everyone and making a submission less daunting, your submission must not contain more than 15 rooms! While RPG rooms are less than half the size of regular DROD rooms, this is actually quite a large amount of rooms to work with. Small RPG stuff is fun! Remember, it doesn't actually have to contain 15 rooms, it can also contain less.

* At the end of the contest, I plan to release and then submit a compilation hold, so to make things easier, your submissions must comply with the usual HA guidelines, this includes:
** Your entry must have at least one scorepoint.
** No scorepoint must have a theoretically infinite score possible due to a resource-generating scripting error.
** Note that custom monsters etc. are fine but any custom sounds or images you include could cause issues, so if you absolutely must include them please ensure you are able to prove that either you made them or have permission at the time of submission, because I'm not going to go to the effort and will sooner just disqualify your entry.

*You may submit as many entries as you like.

Submissions close in negative 32 weeks. (October 10th). Please use the separate thread for your submissions. After submissions are closed there will be a voting thread that will go on until the end of October, probably. Look at this competent planning!

PRIZES
EDIT: Thanks to Mike this is now an official contest! Hooray! Prizes updated to the usual:
FIRST PLACE: 100 points and a prize from The Prize Pile!
SECOND PLACE: 50 points!
THIRD PLACE: 25 points!

As this is now an official contest you cannot win multiple prizes. If you place in the top 3 more than once we push the other prizes down the list so each prize is won by someone unique.

Also, if this is your first contest, you also get an additional 10 points just for participating.

I'm really looking forward to playing the entries; 15 rooms seems like a good size to work around whatever concept you want to build, without things getting too out of hand or too tedious to test.

I just sent in my entry, and want to emphasize that it should be fairly easy to create something for this contest if you've ever played DROD RPG. It only takes a slight grasp of the underlying mechanics to have a go at creating a level set of one's own, and there's plenty of unexplored territory in both scripting-free and flashy scripted types of holds.

There's still plenty of time left!

Just a reminder to everyone that there are just under 3 days remaining to get your submissions in.

We have a number of sumbissions from people who have never made anything for RPG before so if you ever wanted to give it a try with something small or experimental, then now is as good an opportunity as any!
