The Ronnies
RPG Guru Ron Edwards has been running a series of indie game creation challenges over at the Forge. The games must be written in 24 hours.

– Then I judge who receives a Ronny and provide detailed feedback for every entry. A Ronny consists of $50 and willingness to assist and discuss the game as much as you want, says Edwards.
The entries are available at the 24-Hour RPG website 1km1kt.net.
Many previous entries have become published games.

– [The topics of this year’s games] are daring, fascinating, and occasionally shocking. People are using their experiences with innovative mechanics to break new ground into innovative subjects. At least one game has prompted horrified outcries of protest, says Edwards.
