RPG World Championships
Competitive Role-Play is different to ordinary convention gaming. The extra pressure and heartbreaks that come with a competition is not for everyone, especially at the level of the RPG World Championships! Some of the games in the 3rd play slot are world championship games with the final taking place in the 5th and final game slot of the convention. The winner will be announced during the grand finale.
At the end of each game all players and the GM must rate each other player in the game in order of who they thought was the most entertaining player to play with who brought the highest quality of gaming to the table.
The top players from the qualifying road go through to a final where the process is repeated between the players who reached the final.
To prevent collaborative vote rigging players are randomly assigned to the qualifying games 1 day before the event. Players who enter the RPG World Championships will need to keep game slot 5 free for the final.
If you wish to take part in the RPG World Championships the entry details are at the bottom of this page.
