What is March Masksness?
March Masksness is a cross-promotional event for Actual Play podcasts that use the Masks: A New Generation game system by Magpie Games. 64 characters chosen as representatives from the involved podcasts are placed into a NCAA March Madness style single elimination bracket. Listeners of the podcasts can then vote on which character would perform the best. Each round has a unique challenge based on the aspects of what make a great hero.

It was designed to be a month long event to spur comic book style ‘who would beat who’ conversations, introduce new listeners to shows they might not have heard of, and bring the Masks Actual Play community together.

Can I listen to March Masksness
Although the competitors are characters in Actual Play podcasts, March Masksness is not itself an actual play. Scheduling, recording, and editing podcasts is stressful and time consuming - March Maskness was conceived of as a low barrier to entry community event.

That said there are a lot of related events, live streams, and musicals that you can listen to. Check out the event calendar for the schedule.
