Welcome to the inaugural FFR Rando Marathon (Schedule of the Event). This will be a three day event, Noon to Midnight (EDT), on the weekend of June 17th, 18th, and 19th. All randomizer communities are invited to join this charity event to benefit the Liam Foundation, an organization dedicated to encouraging, assisting, healing, and empowering the LGBTQIA+ community. We welcome any and all participants to this first ever event.
The marathon will be a three-day showcase of randomizers. The focus is on randomizers of all shapes and sizes, from RPGs to platformers. If your game can be randomized we invite you to submit it. Once all the submissions are in, the marathon committee will go over the list and will watch the various submitted runs. A schedule will be created from there, filling in the various Noon to Midnight blocks for the three days of the marathon. Meanwhile, the overnight blocks of the marathon will be taken up by (1) an all-night Archipelago randomizer event and, (2) an all-night FFR race. The marathon will end after the last run of Sunday (estimated time of Midnight).
All donations to the Marathon will go to the Liam Foundation. The FFR community will not handle any of the monetary donations for the foundation and 100% of the proceeds of the Marathon will go directly to the foundation.
The prizes for the Marathon will be contributed by the communities. These prizes will be listed during the marathon and awarded after the event via a simple raffle of names. Details about the exact way prizes will revealed, and then allotted after, will be detailed here once the full prize pool is known.
If you do not want to follow these rules do not volunteer for the event.
I saw your post in a community I frequent. While I like that game, there are other randomizer I'd much rather submit to the marathon. Is that okay?
Yes. We would love to see any and all randomizers get submitted to run in the marathon. If there's a game you'd like to run, please fill out our submission form!
What happens if I submit a game that someone else has already put in for the marathon?
Well, there are a few ways we could handle it. Depending on the runs:
I made a submission to the marathon but didn’t hear back yet on whether mine was accepted or not. Was it?
This specifically pertains to runs submitted before the deadline. Ifyou've put in a run, you won't hear back from us (unless we had questions about your submission) until we put together the schedule, and we honestly can't do that until we have all the submissions from players. We won't begin the process of arranging the schedule until after the deadline, and that's because we need to see:
A schedule like this is a puzzle and we have to have all the pieces before we can assemble it. Worry not, though: we will let everyone know, once the schedule is arranged, whether they're in, are being held as a backup run, or if we simply couldn't make it work for the marathon this time.
If you are curious if your submission went through, though, you can ping the @marathon-staff to confirm. We're happy to check for you at any time.
Are we able to submit more than one game? If we did, would only one of our submissions get chosen?
You can submit more than one game. When you submit you say "please only choose one" and list your preference, if you have one, or you can simply leave it open and let the marathon staff choose runs as they desire. Plus, if you submit more than one with open availability there's a chance all your runs could get in.
