StickPirate by Rob Lang!

When you see the entries, we think you will agree that it is the most interesting and appealing submission. Rob has been associated with 1km1kt almost from the beginning and has been a very active member of the forums. His handy work in presenting StickPirate really shows and part of the reason his submission stands out so much is the time and effort he obviously put into, not only the setting, but also the presentation of StickPirate.

Now, there is the obligatory congratulation to everyone that entered. More than obligatory though, we want to honestly thank all who entered for taking the time and effort to put a StickGuy setting together. This is the first undertaking like this that we have done, and we consider it a success specifically because of the quality of the entries. So, to everyone who entered but did not win- thanks. We owe you all a beer (maybe at GenCon next year, perhaps?).

If anyone is wondering, even though the contest is done, 1km1kt is always (ALWAYS) going to accept more StickGuy settings. We know a number of you got through a portion of the setting but were not able to complete it in time for the deadline and there are those who have talked about a setting or two but haven’t put it to paper yet. There will always be room for more StickGuy settings and we encourage you, if at all interested, to send them on in to us.

Expect more competitions like this in the future. This was a good deal of fun for us at 1km1kt and we would like to make it a bit of a tradition to hold contests to help promote more creativity.

and to Rob, we give you a hearty Arrr. The check is in the mail.


Keeton Harrington and Chris Gunning

StickGuy, the Roleplaying Game Setting Contest Rules

Thursday, April 21st, 2005

Official Results of the StickGuy Setting Contest

Submission to the StickGuy setting contest constitutes acceptance of the 1KM1KT Submission Guidelines

You do NOT talk about Fight Club.

Submissions must be at least 1, words and use the StickGuy Roleplaying Game rules-set as the basis for the setting. There is no maximum word count.

The more creative and fun the setting is, the better. Seriously, have some fun writing for StickGuy. The judges are setting junkies.

A setting should include a list of factions (if any), associated new rules or rules tweaks, and background – lots and lots of background. Character examples are also a definite bonus, but not a requirement. Art and maps are welcomed as well (just remember to keep it in the StickGuy mood). Make sure that any art you submit is your own work or that you co-submit with the permission of the artist. There is a good chance your submission will be posted at some point on after the competition is closed and we would all like to avoid those nasty copyright questions.

There?s no crying in baseball.

Please submit your setting as a .doc, .rtf, html, or .txt file. Pictures may be submitted in .gif and .jpg formats.
