A submission for is a playable game text of not less than 5000 words. But I've never written a 5000 word system in a month before, let alone a week. Five thousand words of mechanics is a substantial, mechanically complex game. So my plan...
I have so many more words I need to write for and I can't keep myself from messing around with layout!!

...was to write something that's mostly a city book, with maybe 400-700 words of mechanical system. I figured I'd have a better chance to hit the 5000 word requirement if I was aiming for mostly setting.

But... this point it's looking like the system part will be at least 2000 words, and maybe 2500 words.

So much for having good plans.
