RPG Superstar™ Top 32 Announced
32 finalists selected out of more than 850 entries!
Paizo Publishing, LLC® today announced the finalists for RPG Superstar. Judges Erik Mona, Wolfgang Baur, and Clark Peterson worked feverishly over the past few weeks to narrow the field of 856 entries down to the best 32.
"I'm amazed by the excellent design work not just by the finalists, but by just about everyone who submitted," said Erik Mona, Paizo's Publisher and one of three RPG Superstar judges. "When this started, we were a bit worried that we weren't going to be able to come up with 32 great items. Instead, we ended up with more than 70 that could have made the finals. The Top 32 are the cream of an incredibly bounteous crop."
For the initial open call, entrants were asked to submit a wondrous item using the 3.5 SRD. Each entry needed to be 200 words or less and had to include proper mechanics and flavor. Entries were eliminated for ignoring the entry requirements, for spelling errors, for using non-Paizo intellectual property, or for simply not being creative enough to fit the mold of an RPG Superstar.
The Top 32 finalists for RPG Superstar are:
These 32 finalists will now be required to design a country to the specifications of the RPG Superstar judges and submit that country by Monday, December 3 at 12:00 P.M. (noon) Pacific Time. These round two submissions will be revealed to the general public on December 5 with the judges' comments and the public will then get to discuss the entries and vote for their favorite. Voting ends December 11 and the Top 16 by votes will move on to round three.

The winner of the first RPG Superstar contest will be announced on February 20, 2008.
