The Deed Is Done!

Thursday, January 14, 2010

After weeks of shuffling and dissection, scrutiny and head scratching, we RPG Superstar judges have whittled the word count of this year's avalanche of wondrous item submissions down from several hundreds of thousands to a precious few thousand. As always, there's been an incredible amount of discussion and debate, finally elevating an impressive selection of 32 especially wondrous items. On behalf of the judges and all of us here at Paizo, I wanted to thank everyone who participated for making the judges' jobs at times so very, very difficult and deluging us with such a wide range and imaginative ocean of submissions.

So what's next? Why aren't we announcing the 32 at this very second? How can we contain our enthusiasm!? Well, it's hard, but will be all worth while, as between now and next Tuesday, last year's final four superstars (Eric Bailey, Kevin Carter, Neil Spicer, and Matthew Stinson) will be adding their voices to Sean's, Clark's, and my comments, prepping each for the first round of voting on January 26th. Exciting stuff! So tune in next Tuesday to see if your item made the cut and to help us choose this year's RPG Superstar!

Wait, I thought this a contest to find good designers?


Where exactly in the Promised Land of Oklahoma do you Sooners live?


In the flat, treeless part with red dirt? ;P

The flat part?

Tulsa. And I remind you that none other than Greg Vaughan is a faithful Sooner fan, and also that there are many of us outside Oklahoma.

And, to a certain publisher/Vikings fan: your welcome. Peterson is our gift to you!

TULSA!

MY old stomping grounds!

I have since been hijacked, er, married, and moved to LOUSY-anna, but I still love the OKIE countryside! (MAN I miss actually having seasons!)

Best of luck! I'm off to try and get a couple of hours sleep before 'The Day Of The Big Announcement!'

Best of luck to all!

I went to school at OU, but I've since moved to Washington state.


I am typing to you from Norman, OK.

Ah, Norman. Good times, good times.

You realize that the Promise is that you can leave at any time, right?

True,
I myself escaped in a balloon during the Carter Presidency!

ROFLMAO!

Oh,... wait,... that wasn't a joke,... :(

Yeah, but do you miss cycling through three seasons in a single day? :)


Pleasantly surprised to see fellow Sooner fans hereabouts.
For some reason, it seems to me that fans are vocal within the state, but not so much once they move away.

Of course, it could just be that I live in Austin, so it's unwise to voice my college sports preferences when surrounded by 50,000+ rabid haters of my school...

We need a secret club inside of Paizo.com for the Underground Sooner Supporters ... or something.

Heheh, Believe it or not, actually, yeah.

It beats what we've got down south. Here we only have 2 seasons,...

"Hotter than H@!!", and "Not quite so D@#% Hot" ;)

I wonder if, when I die, I can discover whether the greatest number of hours I logged in my life role-playing where the three years I lived in OK. I know that % wise, they must be. My 2 1/2 years living in Abilene would be second place.

My apartment during college was right across the street from the university duck pond where they held the Renn Faire every year. I logged a great many roleplaying hours during Renn Faire week each year.

On a related note, nothing beats arguments like the following:

"There's no way you can fit your camel through that doorway."

"Can too fit my camel through that doorway. Camels aren't that big."

"Oh, yeah." Opens living room window. "See that camel by that tent over there. How're you fitting that through a 4-foot tall doorway."

"Oh, I guess you're right."

That is truly awesome. Nowadays with things like wikipedia, folks can do this on-the-fly (if they care enough), but nothing beats having a real camel on hand while you're playing. :)

Great story, Eric.

One night when we were playing, somebody kept setting the dumpster outside the dorm/apt window on fire. The first time, my DM took his shirt off, leaned out the window, and yelled, "Your'll all goin to hell!" so loud, that the crowd facing away from us and even the firemen all jumped. Sweet memories.

Two things: 1) Longhorn fans can't take you, so be proud.

2) There is no such thing as an underground Sooner.
