Indeed.

At least I can console myself for not having won with being able to vote for Mortika from now on. Go Chris!

Dedicated Voter 2013

Way to go!

Just combing through 32 items seems daunting.

I have a new respect for the judges.

Congratulations to all, and thanks to the judges for puting in time to look at our submissions.

May the best geek win!!

I object to that Mortika feller being in the contest. He knows too much!


alas, my item did not make the final cut.

Congrats to the winners!


Congrats to you even if I don't know who you are and you don't know who I am.

You guys only made it to the Top 32 because...

Spoiler:
You deserve it!

Congrats to all of you.

Meh, the laymen of the world need a celestial to compete against in order to fulfill their potential; so it was so it shall be.

Oh, I know who you are... a potential voter! :D

So hey, how about that topic relevant to your interests, eh? Eh?


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Congratulations to all the winners, as well as everyone who didn't make it.

To the 32, I would like to say that I much anticipate your next creations (there were some truly wondrous items in there). Thanks for the goodness that I will certainly inject in my home game in the coming months! ;)

To the unfortunate ones, I would like to say "chin up!" For now, try to go out of your way (but in a gentle and friendly manner) to collect feedback on your item, and get ready to compete again next year. In the meantime, do as I do and unofficially join the next rounds in the sidelines; forcing oneself to be creative within the given closing dates is really good exercise!

Again, kudos to you all!

(weak, confused smile) Um, thanks, Tom. Um, ... huh?

Qadira RPG Superstar 2009 Top 8 aka Tarren Dei

Congratulations to the Top 32. You've had a night to think about it. Hope your nightmares brought you the monsters you needed.


Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

I bet Mortika's monster is going to be some sort of Confusion Monster...with wavy hair!

Qadira RPG Superstar 2010 Top 16

I don't know about the wavy hair, but I do requests.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Congrats to all 32 (plus alternates)!

... but only two Canadians, two Aussies, one Netherlander with the rest being Yanks? :p

(Don't worry, I'm not criticising!)

I guess it just means there were a great deal more US entries than non-US.

...and only one from the great state of Texas! I hope that doesn't mean I'll have trouble finding Pathfinders in the future? :)

Congratulations to the top 32! You deserve it, and I am greatly anticipating what you cooked up for the monster round.

Only so you can feed them to the dreaded Krenshar-pei.
