Twitter RPG Design Competition Results

And the winner is.....

BRENT NEWHALL with the following entry:

Play intelligent weasels with other beasts in forest. 13 points in Sneaky, Vicious, Persuade, Health. Beat 1d6 to succeed; 1 damage per hit

I chose this because, let's face it, playing an intelligent weasel? Who doesn't want to do that? The system is simple and usable and it even has as a damage system. You'd probably have to adjust things depending on the size of the animal but hey - there's only 140 characters to play with! Well done, Brent, a copy of my SKETCH game The League Of Seven is on it's way to you now.

A special mention goes to Allon Mureinik with this entry:

Dragon souls hiding in cat bodies. Divide 10 points between attributes: flight, fire-breath, magic. D10+Attribute vs. difficulty to succeed

Mainly because of the concept - the souls of dragons inside the bodies of cats? That's just cool on toast.

Thanks to all of you who entered!


  1. Congrats Brent and Allon!

    Jon, even by running this competition makes you look a little mad, you know.

  2. What does that say about the people who entered? :)

  3. Wow, thanks very much! I'm honored. And it's a great challenge.

    So honored, in fact, it inspired me to create a one-page PDF of the system, fleshing it out into a simple but playable game. Download here:

  4. Firstly, congratulations, Brent. Nicely done, and loved the one-page version too.

    Secondly, a special mention! yey!
