The 2009 RPG Challenge

The 2009 Last Stand RPG Challenge is a mapping event hosted by myself and Lethal_Illusion. Our objective is to fuel and produce quality high-end maps for the Starcraft community in its dying years. We hope to make a competition of unprecedented magnitude, the best the mapping community has to offer- to make one last bang before we go.

Entries must be classified as RPGs, beyond that it must be a story driven map.
There is no specific theme required to adhere to.
There is no regulation on the number of players a map can have.
Maps must meet quality standards (regulated by Lethal_Illusion and I) to merit validation.
RPGs currently in production are valid for submission, so long as the bulk of the work is done in 2009.
Mapping teams are allowed with a maximum of two people per team.
Teams are allowed multiple submissions.
Mod supplemented maps are allowed; all judging, however, should be on the actual RPG aspects of the map, rather than the mod itself.
We encourage all who feel up to the challenge to participate.

The 2009 RPG Challenge is a year long competition, all submissions must be in by 11:59pm December 31st 2009 New deadline: January 14th 2010, 11:59 pm PST in order to qualify. The extensive timeline was set to encourage quality work put into each map, and to appeal to those who only have time at specific times during the year. You can join in on the competition at any time.

The winners will be two-fold, between community vote and judges, with overall-all winners and special awards:

  • NudeRaider
  • Psionic_Storm
  • CecilSunkure
  • qPirateKing
  • TassadarZeratul

Last Words
This thing is going to be awesome, so hop on board early on. If you plan to participate just post and, if possible, provide the name of the project you plan to work on. Also, the partnership limit is flexible if there's enough weight behind raising it.

I will join.

The name of my map is Twilit RPG. It's only 5% done, so I think it's OK.


Jan 1 2009, 12:28 am Biophysicist Post #4

I'm making an RPG called Archmagic. DeVouReR is helping with terrain (I think).


Jan 1 2009, 12:30 am Demented Shaman Post #5

I'll be sure to start my map on Dec 30th.


Jan 1 2009, 12:30 am The Great Yam Post #6

If I enter, I have one request: Distribute any minerals to me to other members. I do not have any and they do not have any bearing on me.

RISKED, you have to make the map from 2009. Your RISKED-911 -=(RPG)=- was from 2008.
Nope, the majority of the work has to be done in 2009. I'm putting it up for now but if it doesn't end up that way I'll take it down.

I'll put RISKED-911 RPG up for now- we'll see if you get around to Girdspire.

I'll try and enter this one. I hope my pathetic map will actually make some standing with all of you guys.
So far, it's got no title though, and just the terrain has been done.


Jan 1 2009, 1:24 am RISKED911 Post #18

fine, i will still submit RISKED-911 RPG anyway.

It's not so much a contest as it is a challenge. We want as many successful submissions as possible. Good luck on your map, I hope you go through with it.

NudeRaider -- Dem0n
Dem0n shouted: who said you were crossing a line
NT kinda did Ultraviolet
Ultraviolet shouted: I always thought it was kind of messed up to impersonate someone without their permission, but I guess that's artistic license for you. When you get into the realm of using AI to do it.. it seems even worse to me, but I'm not sure why
[2023-12-08. : 8:38 pm]
Zoan -- and tbh no, this is exactly the type of thing ai should be used for. Now if you were monetizing it, I would say you should emohasize you used ai for the voicelines
[2023-12-08. : 8:29 pm]
Zoan -- he asked if "am I now crossing a line"
[2023-12-08. : 7:43 pm]
Dem0n -- who said you were crossing a line
[2023-12-08. : 2:24 pm]
Oh_Man -- but if i want to make a LOTR map and use AI generation to give aragorn etc more voice lines am I now suddenly crossing a line? wen did we get so snowflakey
[2023-12-08. : 2:23 pm]
Oh_Man -- well we been doing dodgy stuff in SC for ages playing resident evil and helms deep maps - we dont own the rights to them
[2023-12-06. : 8:46 pm]
Ultraviolet -- NudeRaider
NudeRaider shouted: Ultraviolet absolutely. You can count me among those folks. ;) But I understand it. It's a silly name only kids find funny. However to know that and still own it that would be the manliest move in my eyes.
Yeah, I can appreciate that perspective. I've used so many handles over the years, I think I had less attachment to NerdyTerdy than some of the folks here. Just never changed my name much here cause it was expensive :P I still kind of like the NT name, but definitely prefer Ultraviolet. I think UV has been my handle for around half my life at this point O.o
[2023-12-06. : 6:34 pm]
NudeRaider -- So the question is will we as a society become resilient against these forms of attacks? Either by detecting or accepting? Find new ways to deal with it? I guess we will have to wait and see.
[2023-12-06. : 6:32 pm]
NudeRaider -- da real donwano
da real donwano shouted: Society is not ready for the AI power we're being given. I'll die on that hill.
"social media" is imo a much better example for "society was not ready for it". We haven't seen yet where AI will lead us. It has a lot of potential for good, but then again, so had social media. For now the only potential for abuse in AI that I see is in forgery of various kinds.
[2023-12-06. : 6:26 pm]
NudeRaider -- Oh_Man
Oh_Man shouted: guys what are your thoughts on AI voice cloning vs someone doing impressions. why is one moral and the other immoral? or do you think both are fair game
For me it's the intent that make the difference, not the method. If you copy someone for profit or harm, then that's immoral. If your goal is satire then all bets are off. I think people are just afraid to be deceived because AI removes skill from the equation and painting AI usage as immoral is their weak attempt to defend against it.
