Also, keep in mind that the submission thread proper I'll post tomorrow or wednesday, and there's no reason to submit the "final" version before the weekend. The whole idea is to receive some feedback from other participants before that, and actually polish these 1-4 pages as much as possible.

Ok I need some opinions I tried three times and kept getting splatter punk as a theme. I have decided it is destiny I am just going to settle with splatter punk, but have a question. What is splatter punk? If any one has heard of this genre please let me know for now I am winging it.

regards, Seth

Sorry everyone, mine will be up shortly.

As soon as I work out a way to link to the PDF files I've generated.

If anyone has some help in that regard, it would be much appreciated. Send me a personal message if you've got any suggestions to avoid clogging up this forum.

According to wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Splatterpunk Splatterpunk is is blood filed horror. Texas Chainsaw Masscre, teen horror movies, some zombie films etc. A focus on human evil and actually presenting the gore rather than off camera mutilations.

Broken down a bit more, we have splatter - akin to either splash, or the onomatopoeia of someones head hitting concrete after a twelve story fall. "-punk" genres tend to have a sense of nihilism and rebellion against a corrupt order in them, and often a sense of being alternate versions of film noir tropes.

I've noted that Splatter-Punk usually involves quite a bit of metamorphosis.

Changing from "whole and intact" to "dismembered and bits missing"...

Changing from "mostly solid with liquid inside" to "mostly liquid with some solid chunks"...

Changing from "relatively sane" to "borderline psychosis"...or even further.

I'm seeing a game with heavy flavour similarity to "Deadlands".

While some of you have already found it, for bookkeeping/offical counting, my game thread is http://www.indie-rpgs.com/forum/index.php?topic=24375.0.

So far everything is going well, though I think option D is the most popular of the 5. Any ideas why its so popular?

Cyberpunk + fantasy are an interesting mix, I think, and at the same time this set doesn't involve any wacky complications Smiley

Anyway, it looks like there is slightly more than ten participants now (close to my initial estimations), so taking into account that some of us might quit or not make it before the deadline, I don't suppose we'll need to split into feedback groups. Unless more people join by tomorrow (European) noon, I'll simply post final submissions thread and instructions.

To avoid confusion, would someone mind setting the correct time into the clock? http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedform.html is an online utility to tell everyone what the correct stop time is. When you say due Sunday, does that mean 11:59 Saturday, or before 0:00 Monday, and in what timezone? My computer clock doesn't match the time stamps for this forum, and we have both European and American partcipants.

I have to admit that I'm particularly bad with deadlines, but at least this lets us know when the literal 11th hour is.
