Welcome to the 2011 24 Hour RPG Movie Mashup Competition! Hosted at 1KM1KT and sponsored by The Free RPG Blog.

If you want a chance to win the £30, here's what you need to do:

1. Pick just two films from this list.
Two films and one two films, please! The more you mash together, the less distinctly related to the films the game becomes. And it's a challenge!
1. Ghostbusters
2. West Side Story
3. Aliens
4. The Lion King
5. Star Wars
6. The Rocky Horror Picture Show
7. Enter the Dragon
8. A Clockwork Orange
9. Beatle Juice
10. Back to the Future
11. Apocalypse Now
12. Blade Runner
13. Dr. Strangelove
14. Dawn of the Dead
15. Blues Brothers
16. From Dusk till Dawn
17. The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly (any of the Dollars Trilogy)
18. 2001 a Space Odyssey
19. The Hunt for Red October
20. Aladdin
21. Mars Attacks
22. One Flew Over the Cuckoo Nest
23. Groundhog Day
24. Little Shop of Horrors
25. Falling Down
26. The Shawshank Redemption
27. Evil Dead
28. Wall-E
29. The Sound of Music
30. Indiana Jones (any of them except the Crystal Skull)
31. 1984
32. Robin Hood (any of them)
33. The Maltese Falcon
34. Bugsy Malone
35. Home Alone
36. Independence Day
37. Zulu
38. Dambusters
39. Dark City
40. Dumbo

2. Post in this thread which two films you've chosen.

3. Spend 24 hours writing a roleplaying game on those two films.

4. Make sure you include an NPC called Keeton in your game.

5. Upload your game to 1KM1KT by 00:00 (GMT) 1st June 2011.

6. Make a thread here on 1KM1KT about your game.
(Optional but we'd like you to, please put 2011 at the start of the topic.)

7. Check back on Saturday 1st of August 2011 to find out who the winner is, or check on The Free RPG Blog.

What are the rules?
Apart from the list above, you must obey the 24 hour RPG rules. The judge's decision is final. £30 will be in Amazon vouchers, emailed to you.

I want the £30 to pay my D&D habit! What is it judged on?
Poor you! Our panel of monkeys will be judging you on:
  • Must include an NPC called Keeton
  • Proximity: How close to the two films is it?
  • Complete: Is it complete? Could you run it?
  • Attractive: Is it attractive to look at?
  • Professional: How much effort went into layout and style?
  • Extras: Did they include actual cover, index, character sheet or any other cool things you get in a proper RPG?

I'm late to this party!
That's a shame, we might run another competition soon. If you wrote a 24 hour RPG but didn't get it in before 00:00 GMT 1st June 2011 then we'd still like to see it.

I want to do it again!
Enjoyed it so much that you want another go? Are you bonkers? Yes? Then please do! Have another go. Enter as many times as you like! I'm not paying for the therapy you might need at the end of it, though. ;)

I want to keep working on it after time is up
Please do! Submit what you did in 24 hours and then please do keep going. You won't get any feedback on the extended game from the judges until after the competition but there are plenty of others on 1km1kt who can help.

Question! Can I post my question in this topic? (that isn't my question)

Only two films? if I want to mashup, don't know, three or four movies of the list, I can't do that?

And a suggestion for the all mighty admins of the forum. Can you make a subforum for the past competition so that topics don't mix?

If you mashup more than two, it starts getting difficult for us to tell what is what. The aim is to get a game which is obviously the child of two movies. I think if you had 3 or more movies, you would end up with a game but it might be difficult to attribute parts of it to a single movie.

As for sub forums, I'll get on that now. Good idea.

Actually, Our Glorious Benefactor, you name is a requirement on every competition we've run. First, it was a chucklesome joke. Now it has morphed into that fearful creature: a running joke!

Think not of it as mockery but more of a thank you for all the hard work you've put into 1km1kt over the years - and still do!

Oh and to add to that, our Monkeys are of a particular sort of humour that if I were to remove the rule about including your name, their fervour would become obsession. They would start making your name into entire games: The Keeton Anagram Challenge! Demonstrate Your Undying Devotion to Our Glorious Benefactor By Making a Game About Your Love Competition!

I know that I might make a game where all the short hands end up spelling Our Glorious Benefactor.

Was sort of thinking of doing something similar with the chapter names, or even first letter on each page.
