so...

115 words so far with...

My farewell to this thread is simple: more filigree next year.
Blood filigree.
Blood and alcohol filigree. Against incorporeal undead.
With runes
And three paragraphs of backstory.
In a new invented slot, maybe belly button?
You forgot that bypasses every type of DR and is every type of energy as needed.
streams butterflies that devour swarms.
All as a swift action!
And gains bane vs the closest type of enemy.
You forgot the lightning, wind, water, and thunder effects that each have a 25% chance of occurring on a confirmed critical hit.
Which only costs 9,000,001 gp
At least there are NO spells in the construction requirements!
And the Diehard feat. With no crafting feat.

The english is fixable, it can be templated, and the price is missing the extra 10 silver and 5 copper, so you inventive people still have 185 more words minus templating to get it up to 300 max! :P

Who is Newt?

I'm THE guy in the meeting that always asks the dumb questions in order to ensure he understands and covers the bases.

(UK ignorance too is a factor on this one!)

Some questions on image sources:

Can I use royalty free stock elements on my map?

What about visual elements lifted from existing Pathfinder maps?

No, and no. The only images appropriate for this would be those pre-existing in software you used to create the map. So if you have a cartography or graphics program, feel free to use its existing resources, but don't take art from elsewhere.

So If I was in the running and Used Campaign Cartographer 3 and used Artwork which did not come from Profantasy but were royalty free for use in Mapping Software your saying I could not use it Even though there is a lot of Royalty free Artwork designed to be used for free?

I understand lifting artwork from Copyrighted Images is a NO NO

Most royalty free still requires a source to be noted in accompanying text, you have 50 words, I am sure you want all of those for your entry, not for listing images used with hyperlinks. The problem is this, the map will be linked on a company web page, so even royalty free art puts an onus on the company to link the sources if the entrant did not and so it becomes a nightmare of pitfalls for such art to be used.

Sadly Judge Spice, we do not have a Cull scheduled, as a result of being off our temporal benchmark...

All you can do is hope and pray an make a map just in case.

Entrants like I are at +8 hours ahead of PST (i.e. UK time).

Those ahead of PST could be impacted more seriously than those who live in the PST zone... imagine this scenario

Whatever the problem is, it proves serious enough to delay the announcement to say 6pm PST, that's 2AM UK the next day...

All you lucky PST people get a couple of days of daylight hours, where us poor souls end up passed out asleep on our keyboards and wake up the NEXT day with just 1 to 1 and a half days to get things done, bleary sore eyes, keyboard imprints on one side of our face, stiff back and neck etc... sleeping like that is not easy you know :).

Me I am trying to draw with EVERYTHING crossed that the fix is a fixable fix with a small time-frame and that I can be ready whenever the fix is done should I progress.

That my fellow contestants is all we can do, the milk is spilled so let's lap it up and carry on like true freelancing soldiers at the eventful word and picture coal faces.

I never accussed anyone of Cheating..a Mathematical Unbalanced way to determine a winner is not Outright cheating...Unfair Yes but Not Cheating. I never said cheating is what caused my item to not get selected after 2 Cull. I never really expected my item to win #1 spot.

Sure Unofficial People have offered an explanation on how it was suppose to Work but until I see that the horse is really before the cart I ain't buying it...

This why I never usually enter contest like this..I ain't interested in it. If I wanted to publish an Adventure, I can do what others are doing..Write it..Kickstart it...Sell it on my Own..Guess what It Works. I can design Flip Mats and sell for even 25 cents a piece in PDF format and make money on it. Took me about 2 Hours to recreate the Ossuary Map from The Godsmouth Heresey..Even if I thought my time was worth $20 dollars per hour..I could easily have taken donations to make that Money but I turned it down. I don't do that. All my creations are credited to the original Cartographers and I try and adhere to their Original Maps unless I have absolutely have change things because of my Skills with Campaign Cartographer. If I was looking to just win and make money I would not be doing Maps for free and giving them away and sharing with Paizo Fans..I would not be offering to do them for free for Paizo so they can provide them for their Fans. This contest is not about becoming the greatest Fanatsy designer since Gary and Arn for me. It was about giving back to a Game I love.

Imagine a bucket. Put one of each item in that bucket. Now when somone opens the vote page or gets their next pair, they take the two items they are voting on out of the bucket. Eventually, every item is taken out of the bucket spread across multiple voters... But every item has been seen and voted on the exact same number of times... When the bucket gets emptied, it is refilled with one of every item not culled. Repeat, repeat. This means that every item is seen the same number of times as every other item in the competition. As we all draw from that same bucket, we might never see all the items individually, but all items are seen the same number of times. No maths, does that help understand?

... kind words ...

And for the last couple of years I have offered a template check service to contestants who want to avail themselves of that offer (using my Template Fu alias).

I am sure if Owen/Paizo didn't like or want me offering that opportunity then they would say so and I would stop immediately.

I am immensely proud that contestants who want to learn and progress actually ask for my template check and feedback. It fully believe that many of these contestants will grow and make Top 32 over the coming years because they have shown a willingness to learn and improve by asking for help.

If it ever became against the rules, I would cease immediately out of respect for this wonderful company that gives us such an amazing opportunity every year.

FYI, I broke records this year with over a 100 of you requesting a template check - of those, I have seen 80 in the last couple of days.

Whether you used my template check offer or not, I wish you all good luck - the round 1 reveal is not far away at all now. Good luck all.

Agreed, only 2 PFS GM stars.

Maybe because you are such active role players, that you are busy in the dungeons rather than on the forums? or, busy preparing for tonight/tomorrow night? or busy filling in your forms and reports to send to HQ? etc etc etc.

If the spell you mention in your description is not really well-known and you do not describe its effects, you'd better provide me with a link :-/
Or you could, you know, search for it yourself on the PRD. It's not hard, and providing links is not required by the rules.

Stop oppressing my snark ; -))

That said, it is good commercial practice to make life easier for your customers. And this is exactly what voters are.

I've mentioned before, I prefer no links to links. Books don't get to have links.
I'm pro-links! We are not printing these in books (at least not yet). It is not required, but I say, use the technology you are working in. It sure makes it easier to look up what makes the item tick if it has links. Some items need them more than others, but I wish they were all hyperlinked. SNARK!

There are more important considerations too...

a) Books have the spells and feats in the same page, your design on line does not - so - linking them is turning your design into an online book in that if you need to, you can use the "index" (the link) to go look the spell/feat/whatever up.

b) if the link actually links to a PRD entry, then voters can just hover the link, see the link to PRD and be assured you have used PRD only materials in your design - making their voting life easier :)

c) Having or not having links shouldn't change your vote, it's the design that should be doing that. If you do, aren't you guilty of being the template fiends that everyone refers to?

I don't care either way, I may grumble when you use a spell or feat I don't know and I do have to search the PRD to find it, but I don't let that affect my voting decision.

So all you link users - good for you, my voting is made faster and easier because of the link

All you non link users - good on you too, I may have to take an extra minute or two sometimes but it isn't hurting you.

I'm voting on the design, not the link or absence thereof :)

For people worrying about resolution: it should be easy to go to a lower dpi in a graphics program. As others have pointed out elsewhere, GIMP will do more than you need and it's a free download. In GIMP, you can open an image, click "Image -> Scale Image" and type in the dpi you want out. That's it. Other graphics programmes should be similar, but dpi shouldn't be a game changer!

Sounds easy enough, just hope GIMP works and installs on Win 10 ? >.<

You have just one flaw, item. Your name is plural, and the voting button says {Item} is better. Tut tut tut.

To be fair to Paizo, they did ask us to submit "an item" (singular) in the round rules.

And I would dearly love to meet the programmer able to identify plural names for an is/are option on the button - it would be a nightmare to code as it would have to check items with missing names, names with [ B] tags, name in the name field not matching name in the item block, etc.

Nice tag.

His tag makes me wonder if it's a reference to an earlier season when Neil was judging the wondrous items and filled out a scrolling screenful or two of review notes on pretty much EVERY item in the top 32 and quite a lot of the Critique My Item thread.

I also recall Clark, Sean etc, could only put in short feedback of

Gah! I just double checked my saved map file from last time. It seems it is actually 150 DPI! Sorry for the bad info, folks. :(

So, experienced scanners...

Is it best to scan at 150 dpi, OR are the results better if scanned at 300 or 600 and then use photoshop to downscale the dpi?

Interesting Factoid...

From the original submissions, the survival rate of item types past the third cull is:

Wondrous Item - Chest: 100%
Wondrous Item - Feet: 90%
Shields: 80%

Every other item type has a survival rate below 60%. (45% - 50% is typical)

Two item types have a survival rate around 25%:

Wondrous Item - Eyes
Wondrous Item - Headband

I know what I am going to make and not going to make next year!

I remember last season, when we had the gauntlet thrown down... "Staves are hard to do well". So, based on that, a really good headband might not have a great deal competing against it ;)

The third Cull was actually the fourth Cull. The actual third Cull happened and no one remembers it, not even the Paizo staff.

The Culls represent the cycle of the worlds in the Mayan cosmology. We are in the fourth world where the new gods of item design are showering us with wonders. The third world ended in water, submerged by a deluge of sea-inspired puns.

The sixth Cull marks the end of reality as we know it. Our world will merge with the RPGSS to make a dark contemporary mix of fantasy and technology where all the previous RPGSS creations are quite real.

Click the language option/drop-down...
Click Set Proofing Language...

Set to US English for spelling and grammar...

(this sets the checking temporarily for that document and does not set it globally, so will not affect your normal settings)

BEWARE red squiggles in the entry box, the entry box in your browser uses your local globalisation, so for example, a chrome user in the UK will see spell checks in UK English and not US English.

When writing anything for gaming companies, the majority of companies use US English as the standard and not UK English. Do check this though when working as a freelancer.

US English example : Armour is wrong, Armor is right.

Always spell check with a US English setting, it will save you a lot of grief.

So how does everyone feel about items from previous years being resubmitted? After all, when submitted they become property of Paizo.

It's not a DQ offence BUT...

If I recognise (or think I do) an item, I go through all my old sheets and IF I can confirm it as a resubmission it makes me wonder if that designer is a one trick pony. It then makes me look for a reason to vote for the other item.

I'm probably not the only long term contestant who does this, so it doesn't bother me too much as they are doing their own chances harm by not submitting something new.

One tip from last year when doing your maps... think about clarity and tone and be aware of others who's monitors may not be set like yours.

i.e., two shades of a colour next to each other might look clear on paper but after scanning they merge to a single color on different laptop screens and monitors - be color distinct - you cannot rely on everyone's color depth and tonal settings to be the same as yours!

You are not rendering the final map, it needs to be totally clear so that a professional artist can use it to render the real thing!

Also small text / handwriting scans horribly, so don't write too small, allow for the text to be easily read when scanned.

Be color blind aware, don't put red text on green grass for example.

Thin lines may not get scanned or may get filtered out when reducing to the contest required DPI, so be "3B, 4B, 5B or 6B bold" on your grids/walls/etc.
