This thread gets a lot of traffic and I only check it about once a day, so a PM is just fine.

Yes. And if it's something we think needs to be clarified (like, "we forgot to say your monster can't be a template")...

I was thinking about it, and I actually think "monster must be a template" would be a great twist. I think it'd take a lot of creativity to come up with a good template and while it may not involve quite as much rules knowledge as making a monster from scratch, it's not nothing either.

Anything could happen in the next half hour...

Whatever does happen, it's been a pleasure and a privilege competing in the Top 32. You're all great guys. It's felt like a real team effort to make this competition the special event that it is. I'm proud to be working alongside you all.

Good luck!

Andoran Contributor, RPG Superstar 2012 , Star Voter 2013, Marathon Voter 2014

Good luck! I look forward to seeing your monsters in the next round!

Thanks Daniel. These first two rounds have been very educational and I'm really pleased to have been a part of this competition and this guild myself. Best of luck gentlemen.

(Only about 10 more minutes...)

Congrats to the top 16! Have fun guys.

Cheliax RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16 , Star Voter 2013, Dedicated Voter 2014 aka FaxCelestis

YES! Thank you, everyone. I'm making monsters and I'm still alive.

Sorry to see you go, those of you who didn't make the cut. Those of you who did, congratulations.

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32 aka Cydeth

Congrats to the top 16!

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16, 2012 Top 32 , Marathon Voter 2013, Marathon Voter 2014 aka Epic Meepo

A big congrats to the Top 16! You guys earned it.

Now go make some awesome monsters for us spectators.

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16 , Marathon Voter 2013, Marathon Voter 2014

Oh HELL yeah...

Wow, lots of conflicting emotions right now. Sorry to see you go, all who didn't make it. Also, stress levels rapidly rising. At least none of the twists conflict with my ideas.

Ah, curse you once again, timezones. How am I supposed to get some sleep now?

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16 , Dedicated Voter 2013, Star Voter 2014

Commiserations to those leaving us, and hope to see you back next year.

Andoran Contributor, RPG Superstar 2012 , Star Voter 2013, Marathon Voter 2014

Congratulations to the other top 16. It feels weird being here.

To those who didn't make it, I consider you worthy competitors, and I hope to see you in next year's competition.

Top 16, do us proud, give us some great monsters. Know you have my support and envy, in that order. Congratulations!

RPG Superstar 2013 Top 32, RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16 , Dedicated Voter 2013, Star Voter 2014 aka Hodge Podge

Top 34 (32+2), it was a wild ride. Please stick around, and make us some monsters so we know what we're missing (especially you, Eric)!

Top 16, ride on! We crawled out of the primordial Sea of Wonders, and galloped over the War Fields of Many Factions. We who survived the carnage must now pass through the Ancient Forest of Atypical Monstrosities. And all the while, the Mountain of Module looms ever more menacing in the distance... We who remain must band together, lest we be eaten alive.

Jacobs, you may bury your dead before we move on.

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 4 , Star Voter 2014 aka MillerHero

Sorry to see 16 go. Congratulations other 15.

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 4 , Star Voter 2014 aka MillerHero

Interesting list of prohibited monster types. I wonder why they choose those.

Yeah, I was pondering that myself. I'd figured that for oozes, it's that you can't really have many more variations of "big, carnivorous, amorphous blob." But then, think of the challenge!

And then dragons are... well, they're dragons. They tend to be very similar. And maybe constructs run the risk of getting "steam-punky." After you take out actual technology, all you have left is animated objects and statues. :p

Outsider... hmm... too broad of a category? You've got everything from hellhounds to angels. The outsider category is just a catch-all for things from other planes. It doesn't really help to describe a monster in terms of shape or ability. Also, being from another plane means it's not really connected to Golarion, specifically (never minding native outsiders like genies, which have a huge place in lore).

Those are my guesses. It'd be nice to have the options, but hey.
(Note: It seems that all of the subtypes are still available though, so if you wanted to use 'extraplanar' in lieu of 'outsider'...)

EDIT: Good night everybody! I'm off to fight this fella' in my friend's campaign tonight. I fear I may die.

Sczarni RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32 , Champion Voter 2013, Champion Voter 2014

Ooze have quite a few holes to explore. I think you were on target for dragons, and outsiders. For constructs, with the expanded rules from the Ultimate Magic, there are more ways of upgrading them with hints of other options.

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32 aka artofcheatery

Congrats to those that made it, go sleep to those (like me) that did not.

When I was throwing around monster ideas I found a lot felt like they had to be outsiders and there are already a lot of outsiders, so my only monster that I stated out is a magical beast and it's more interesting because I had to make it somewhat realistic rather than just hand wave effects and abilities with 'it's an outsider'.

Congratulations to the others in the top 16!

To the remainder of the top 32, I'm sad to see you go.

Grand Lodge RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32 , Marathon Voter 2013, Dedicated Voter 2014 aka Jiggy

The first of the Jacobs has fallen. Don't let me down, brothers!

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32 , Star Voter 2013 aka nate lange

hey everyone- it was great while it lasted, best of luck to the 16 who made it. now to return to my pile of RL responsibilities.

RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16, RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16 , Marathon Voter 2013, Marathon Voter 2014 aka motteditor

As others have said, congrats to those who advanced, and condolences to those who didn't.

RPG Superstar 2008 Top 16 , Marathon Voter 2013, Marathon Voter 2014 aka MythrilDragon

Congrats to all who made it on the the next round...we will eagerly be waiting to see the monsters you all come up with.

Contributor, RPG Superstar 2010 Top 16, 2011 Top 32, 2012 Top 4

Congrats fellow Top 16-ers!

And to the rest of the Top 32: Condolences. I hope ... heck, I expect ... to see your names here next year. Trust me, you can do it!

Cheliax RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16 , Star Voter 2013, Dedicated Voter 2014 aka FaxCelestis

Anyone know if "comes from Golarion" means "comes from Golarion's Prime Material"? Extraplanarness is not really addressed by the round 3 rules.

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16 , Dedicated Voter 2013, Star Voter 2014

Hey James, there's some clarification on that exact point in this post by Sean.

Cheliax RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16 , Star Voter 2013, Dedicated Voter 2014 aka FaxCelestis

Oh, cool. Thanks.

Contributor

And all of the NC crowd is still in the game. :D

Congrats to everyone in the top 16 (NC and otherwise), and for those among the top 32 that didn't make it into the next round, I hope to see you all back here next year with awesome stuff.

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32 , Dedicated Voter 2013, Star Voter 2014 aka SmiloDan

Congrats to all those that made it!!! Best of luck!!!

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32 aka Stormfriend

Ah well, it was fun whilst it lasted. Good luck to the top 16; I shall enjoy seeing what you come up with.

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32 , Star Voter 2013

Wow! Being out of the competition already is harder than I thought. Kinda sux. Can't say I'm not disappointed.

It was a lot of fun, though, while it lasted--fun and stressful! I learned a lot, anyway.

Thanks, everybody, for being so great! And good luck to the 16 who advanced.

It will be fun to watch the rest of the contest... kinda like dying in an FPS and then not respawning so you can watch all the action! :)

Aveeeeennnnnnnnnge me!!!!!! ;p

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32 , Dedicated Voter 2013, Star Voter 2014 aka SmiloDan

I had hoped to go a bit farther, but I honestly don't have an adventure idea. The closest thing I have is based on the organization I didn't submit....and probably should have.

Oh well. There's always next year.

Unfortunately, Superstar isn't like freelancing, where you can turn down the assignments you know you can't pull off to focus on the ones you can. You've just got to take what you're given and do what you can with it. And if that means sputtering out before you get your chance to shine... Well, that's just a part of the game.

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 8

Congratulations to the Top 16 and commiserations to the rest of the Top 32(34). I think it was mighty close (except for Sam and Russell, of course, who nailed round 2).

The twists mean I've thrown out most of my monster ideas. Bah! Three days of intense work coming up.

RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16, RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16 , Marathon Voter 2013, Marathon Voter 2014 aka motteditor

Yeah, I had to toss my main idea too: poor little [redacted]. I think I've come up with an alternate I'm pretty excited about, though. I want to get him/her/it/them statted up today and then see if I can get a good second or third option to finally pick from.

: ) Was working on my entry when my GSD/houndy girl -- who almost never plays with her toys -- pulled out a stuffed cow from her toy chest and started romping around with it. I think she wants me to create a cow-killing dog creature of some sort. I've told her I will call it a galumphing goof, in her honor. She's very excited and is sure it will propel me ... excuse me, us! ... to the finals. : )

{OK, she seems to have been appeased for a moment, so back to work until we have to go for a walk...)

I hear ya, buddy. *brofist*

Interestingly, I'm actually less upset than I anticipated. Probably for two reasons: one, my organization was a failure. I really didn't deserve to advanced based on what I produced. Two, I'm actually finding more solace than I expected in seeing the other two Jacobs advance. Vote Jacob 2012!
