It looks like we're having another contest around here.
This time around, an ASCII art rpg with a character party technical requirement.
How long do you think that the contest should be for?

I'm really excited about this...I need a break from my current RPG project. I'm pretty busy, so I'd vote for a month-long competition.

I am fine with a month contest; I chose a week; but after thinking about it more, a month would be better. I wish I could change my vote :P

Question: is the use of non-ASCII characters allowed? Because I really want to use kanji. Also, ASCII art doesn't preclude the use of graphical effects, right?

I'm fine with using any characters, and use them in whatever way you can :-) I don't see why we should be strict about things...

I'm not too bothered about how long the competition is either... Whatever means the most people will join in :D

I'm fine with kanji characters.
I'm also fine with graphical effects, and even mild use of graphics such as enemy sprites and menus.

I think we're going for "the spirit of ASCII art", whatever that means to each of us :-)

I voted for a month.

When do we begin? As Spongebob says, "I'm ready!". :)
