24 hour

Movie Mashup Scenario Competition
2011


The idea of this competition is to have some fun and create something fun to read and something
great to run as a one-shot here at PLAY@YSDC.
Anyone here on the forum may enter the competition.
If you don´t want or can run a game here, I will run the winning scenario after the Holidays.


To participate you need to follow the guidelines below.

The time used to write the scenario: You have 24 hours at your disposal.

The competition takes place: November 30, 21:00 GMT - December 1, 21:00 GMT

What to include:

    Two movie plots from the list below - mashed together to a new theme. Specify which two movies you base the mashup on.
    Add a Cthulhu mythos twist to the plot.

2001 IMDB top ten list
1. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)
2. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001)

10. Black Hawk Down (2001)


Submit your entry before the end of December 1 and it is viable for competition.
A competition Email address will be posted at the end of November.
Format: PDF

What to consider when judging the submissions:

Is it clear what two movies have been used for the scenario?
Is the scenario ready to be run as is?
Is there a mythos twist to the scenario?
How is the layout? Is the scenario easy to read?
Last you have to ask yourself if you´d consider to run it.

These things combined should give you an idea as to which submission is your favorite.

Anyone who is a user on the forum may vote on one scenario.

The scenarios will be anonymously posted for user judgment.

Prize: Honor and pride plus the opportunity to run the scenario here on the board.

Two days to go before the writing begins. Good luck and let´s see if more than one entry comes in. I´ve decided on which two films to mash into a mythos pulp.

Poor managing on setting up the contest. Too much work in life itself or simply bad timing? Those things made me miss the deadline of my competition. I extend the competition to a 24 days competition - leaving the deadline open till Chrsitas Eve.

That will make my own submission readable here and maybe some other.

Cheers!
