This is my first rpg? and I don't think it's a good idea to rush it in 24 hours, but... :D . Well I always wanted to try doing 24 hour rpg, but inspiration came only now. Hope I will end up with something playable at all, I do ot have much free time tomorrow :D .

This is an excellent way to get started! Far too often an author's first attempt at an RPG is also their last, as it gets bogged down in details and remains unfinished. The 24 hour challenge will produce something, and let you learn about your writing style.

Welcome to 1km1kt.net. We hope to see you around here more often. Good Luck.

Thanks! Sorry if there would be crappy grammar and bad English, because I'm not very good at them( hopefully my rpg will have not many grammar mistakes ).

I second what Chainsaw Aardvark said: finishing a 24h RPG is a rewarding experience and generally FUN. Welcome onboard! Keep us updated!

And don't worry about your English, there are quite a few non-Native speakers here. Including me. Just make sure to proof-read your text before converting it to pdf. It helps to have somebody else read it for you, because people tend to skip their own mistakes.

Ooh, a first! Now, don't go being all good and stuff, putting out something that was better than our first ideas! :mrgreen:

Grammar and spelling don't matter so much, especially when you have to concentrate on actually finishing in a short time. (or for some of us - lets face it - at all) Fortunately, I have a degree in literature and some knowledge of technical editing, so I'm around to help fix as needed.

Finished. I have selected bad time for this, because, well, 24 hours are here like 6 hours? I didn't actually count, but I think writing process took something like that, and if you count my thinking while walking/sleeping it's 8 hours( making excuses, yep ). And now online Word to PDF cnverter can't convert my game :-x . Well, IMHO it's not very playable, and definitely not good, but... meh. It has converted my rpg, and now I hope it didn't screw it up. It did :cry: , but I can't spend any more time so... BEHOLD! THE HARDCORE INSTANT DEATH RPG! Going to post it on 1km1kt for you to criticize.
EDIT:
If you feel your work would be a valuable addition to our site, please send it in for consideration.

Well, honestly, after looking at some other rpgs done at 24 hour period.... mine is meh. So well, gonna submit it tommorow maybe.
