| OVERALL DESCRIPTION
From the Challenge webpage:
What is it?
It's an RPG design challenge where you complete each other's games.
How does it work?
It has three stages, which are entirely anonymous.
In the first stage you submit a 700-1100 word RPG by midnight on Tuesday, August 11th, 2015. Maybe it's playable, but likely it's not. What you're trying to do with your 700-1100 word submission is give the next designer a core they can take forward.
In the second stage I randomly reassign the submissions back to everyone, and you have roughly twelve days to increase them by 1000-1200 words. You can change or delete whatever you want, as long as you keep what you believe are the important conceits of the game, and end up with an increased wordcount in the target range. These are due by midnight Sunday, August 23.
Then in the third stage I randomly reassign the stage two games, again making sure no one gets one they submitted in stage one or worked on in stage two, and you work the one you get up by an additional 2000 words. You have another fifteen days for this stage. And like before you can keep, change, delete whatever you want. Your goal is a playable game in the target wordcount range. And they're due midnight Sunday, September 6.
