Default Ogre Playmat Scenario Contest

We've produced several different playmats for both The Fantasy Trip and Ogre, and many of you have been collecting the designs and, we hope, using them in your game sessions. However, the most common question we get about them is: How do I use these at my table?

We use the playmats to run custom scenarios, but enough about us.

How do you use the playmats in your games?

Have you created a custom scenario or adventure for use with a specific playmat design? Now's your chance to show it off!

For Ogre, each entry must include:
  • A proper title for the encounter, which playmat you are using, your full name, and your email address.
  • Scenario setup information.
  • The title of the existing playmat design (found here).
  • Description of the scenario background/lore.
  • Order of battle for both forces.
  • Please keep submissions to 450-550 words.
  • Email to: contests@sjgames.com
  • All submissions must be received by Steve Jackson Games no later than January 1, 2021.

Ogre Prizes
  • First Place Our favorite entry will win a signed Ogre Pocket Box Bundle and Ogre Sixth Edition.
  • Second Place The second-place winner will receive a signed Ogre Sixth Edition and Bullet Dice.
  • Third Place Our third-place choice will receive a signed Ogre Sixth Edition.

RIGHTS

All entries become the property of Steve Jackson Games. We reserve the right to publish your submission in the future (maybe in an Ogrezine, maybe some other way), use it as inspiration for a design of our own, or repurpose the material in ways we may not yet know.

Does it have to be only a single mat, or is a larger multi-mat map allowed?

Should we limit the content to standard units and existing rules, i.e., no variants?

I suggest sticking with standard units and the official rules.

I'm very much looking forward to seeing the outcome of this project. So far, I've only used the playmats with existing scenarios, usually two of the mats. I'm such an infrequent player that even the old standby scenarios on their intended maps are often novel for me, but I like the idea of playing a scenario/map combination that literally no one else is likely to have played.

When you say standard are you including the VG, SoN, ARF and Nihon units from any of the expansions or core game? Would BGGzilla be considered part of that. Also can maps mods be part of the scenario?

I don't think the sponsor sheets external to the ODE box count as "standard."
I would think some basic map mods (ie, using some overlays available in the various boxes (or from the free terrain PDF), the free stream overlay sheet, etc) would be ok.

If it is in Ogre Sixth Edition, then it is standard. Changing the map is not a good idea.

Do you consider Reinforcements and Battlefields part of Ogre 6e then? Maybe a separate contest down the road for ODE?
