Default Heresy Online Design A Game Contest

Heresy Onlines - Design A Game Competition

Alright Heretics, we have a new contest here for you to dig your claws and sink your teeth into:

Heresy Onlines - Design A Game Contest

What we are looking for

What we are looking for is a twist to your favourite game system, be it 40K, Fantasy, one of the Specialist Games, a non-GW game, anything. Basically we want you to take your preferred system and create a game based in it. The better designed the system is, the better your chance at winning so make sure those rules you come up with are tight and well thought out.

A few examples could be:-
  1. Squigg Wars - Squiggs fighting in Arenas
  2. Orklympics - Orkified athletics
  3. Rat Race - Racing game where people mod their "warpstone runner" and race one another.
  4. Brood - Some kind of gene pool mutation game to create a unique nid creature.

How to Enter
Entering the competition is simple. All you need to do is write up the rules and submit them in Word or PDF format to jezlad @ Alternatively, you can post them in the Heretic Submissions forum here. Thread in this forum can only be viewed by yourself and the staff so it can be used as a WIP area.

Judging the winners

Judging will be done by the staff and as such, we are not allowed to enter this contest, only our members may do so. Blatant rip offs of other games will not be allowed so keep that in mind when you start thinking up rules. The rules system you come up with can be as simple or complex as you like but it must be based on a prior written system.


The top 5 contestants in this will receive a £10 voucher for Wayland Games to spend as they see fit. On this note, only one person may receive the prize. We encourage team entries but sadly we're unable to award all of the members.

As usual all winning entrants will receive a years Supporter access (or an extension if they currently support Heresy) and be awarded the Medallion of the Chosen.

Awarded for winning Official Heresy Online competitions.
Awarded to those that achieve supremacy in competition on the boards of Heresy.

A Small Bonus

As a further incentive, we're going to collect all the entrants and publish them within a PDF download to distribute to the rest of the internet. That'll be 5 or more pick up and play games in one PDF file!

Competition dates

The contest will run until the end of November so you should have plenty of time to dream something up and do some playtesting. Good luck to any who decide to enter and let's see just what kind of crazy ideas you nutty Heretics can come up with.

Terms and Conditions

  1. You may not use any copyrighted material in your submission, If a submitted rule set is deemed to be in breach of copyright or a blatant copy of another game system, we reserve the rights to remove it and/or to refuse to award a prize to the person/persons that submitted it.
  2. By entering the Competition, you hereby warrant that all information submitted by you is true, current, complete and not misleading.
  3. The winner will then be notified by email or private message within 7 days of the end of the competition.
  4. The winner may not request and is not entitled to a cash alternative to the prize and the prize is non-refundable and non-transferable.
  5. On submitting a game, each entrant irrevocably and exclusively grants and assigns to Heresy-Online the entire copyright and all other rights of his entry.
  6. By entering the Competition, all entrants are deemed to accept these Terms and Conditions

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Are we allowed to enter more than one game idea. Say I have an idea for 40K and one for fantasy could I enter both or are entries limited to one person?

God, gives children to people so that death won't seem so disappointing.

Great idea now im thinking of entering but do we need pictures?

Nyctophobia- Fear of the Dark Angel.

"No one ever spoke about of those two absent brothers. Their separate tragedies had seemed like aberrations. Had they, in fact, been warnings that no one had heeded?"

'Killing a man is like fucking, boy, only instead of giving life you take it. You experience the ecstasy of penetration as your warhead enters the enemy's belly and the shaft follows. You see the whites of his eyes roll inside the sockets of his helmet. You feel his knees give way beneath him and the weight of his faltering flesh draw down the point of your spear. Are you picturing this?'
'Yes, lord.'
'Is your dick hard yet?'
'No, lord.'
''What? You've got your spear in a man's guts and your dog isn't stiff? What are you, a woman?'

Now is it coming up with a whole new game, or is it like building a new custom scenario to play in a game like 40k? I'm fuzzy on what qualifies as a "new game."

If it is build a scenario then I believe I am starting to think of one myself. Will have to see if it works.

Not finished till the end of November? Shweeet! Can spend time in my study periods working on something once school starts up again.
