Go Go Go North Carolina (I'm claiming Joseph as ours as well because he drives over the mountain from TN to game with us in Asheville)!!!

Still a solidly international group!

I think this is the strongest sweet sixteen ever.

If the Round 3 rules are any indication, when the monsters get publicly posted.

Thankyou to all the judges and voters, commiserations to the 16 who didn't make it and good luck to the other top 16 - good hunting all!

And, Scott, it seems like only two rangers made it through.

Woo! Hello sleep, exercise, and social life! I really missed you guys! :D

This year's competition is really strong, so I'm not too disappointed to have not made it through. Either way the vote went was good for me, because either I'd have a shot at furthering myself in the competition, or I'd open up some more time for myself and to comment on everyone else's entries! Win-win!

And now I can continue on with my previous goal of being in the top 32 every year. I want to run out of space next to my name on my posts. :p

If it helps, the contest gets a lot more unforgiving from here on out.

Awesome! Good work and good luck guys, can't wait to see what you bring out of the closet of from under the bed for us.

All of the ones I voted for made it to the top 16. Marvelous. Really loved the alchemists and monks, and seeing the gunslinger making it is interesting indeed! Congrats on being so ballsy, it worked out for you. Can't wait to see the monsters.
