Andrey Plisko to translate some of the entries!

+Andrey Plisko contacted me, wishing to translate some of the entries into Russian for members of his community.  I have been working with him creating some "blanked out" images for use as a backdrop in Scribus. Andrey has supplied title translations and I have started adding them into the images as well. Andrey will overlay the Russian text in the blanked out areas.

In a word, this is Замечательно!

Thanks to Andrey for his efforts, and his vision to share the creations of others in a way that is easily accessible!

To the left, a blanked out version with some translation of +Will Doyle and Stacey Allan's "Temple of the Moon Priests".

Big thanks to this year's sponsors- All the prizes have been/ are being distributed to the winners.

I have really enjoyed being the organizer this year. I got to interact with a lot of great people and learned a lot throughout the process, and of course I was able to see the entries before anyone else, so that was pretty cool.

2017 One Page Dungeon Contest Winning Entries!

I want to thank Steven Winter, Martin Thomas, Ross Payton, and Random Wizard for supporting the contest this year by acting as judges. The judges had a difficult task: Select and rate their top ten entries. Entries at the top of each list recieved the most points, and entries that appeared on more than one judge's list had these points added up. The entry with the most points overall was determined the "Best Overall One Page Dungeon", and the next ten top-scoring entries were the additional winners of this year's contest. Contratulations to the creators of the top scoring eleven entries!

The 2017 One Page Dungeon Contest has drawn to a close. Now we wait for the judges to review the 79 entries and make what are likely to be some very tough decisions!

Thanks to everyone who participated this year!  Each participant will be receiving a copy of the 2017 One Page Dungeon Compendium, which I am happy to say is nearly completed!

Something new this year is the addition of individual hyperlinks on each entry page leading to blogs/ twitter/ or other areas of interest provided by the creators.

All entries have been converted to 300 DPI Tiff images and placed in the Indesign Document in alphabetical order.  The only things left to do are order the winners once they are selected, index each page, and update the table of contents!
