Right now the Top 8 are working like mad to finish the Round 4 challenge by tomorrow’s deadline. Their location-encounters go live on Tuesday, but there’s a unique twist to this round—the competition schedule includes a week for the public to have an open playtest of these encounters. This has never been done before in RPG Superstar, and we strongly encourage you to playtest at least one of the Top 8 encounters and post your playtest feedback in the encounter’s thread on the RPG Superstar messageboards.
Voting begins on March 6th, and we expect the playtest feedback will greatly help sort out who’s moving on to the Top 4 and the final design challenge for RPG Superstar 2012!
Not everyone is going to have feedback in all areas of encounter/location design based on playtesting. Just post your thoughts and reflections as they arise and in whatever format you feel best expresses them. We'll provide some guidance on what level PCs to use, point buy, wealth, etc. so everyone's playtesting with the same variables.
