Well the actual tournament is over, time for the results. After a long and hard-fought tournament, the winner of Alternate Reality is: Classic Traveller!
I'm happy to say I actually called this year's winner. I was a bit worried about how the storied program from the Traveller Conference was going to hold up against the aggressive play style so common in the Big D&D, but in the end, finesse takes the win.
Thanks again to Zachary over at RPG Blog II for starting up The Great RPG Tournament and giving me the thumbs up to twist his idea into something different.
