A Most Unfortunate Delay

Monday, August 31, 2015

Are you eager to hear the Top 32 results for Season 9 of RPG Superstar? We certainly are! Unfortunately, we're all going to have to wait a little bit longer.

A series of unfortunate events means that our original plan to announce the Top 32 will be delayed until tomorrow. I know many of you were eager to see if you made it into the final round, and we certainly wanted to share in the excitement! In the meantime, we're going to have to ask you to delay your actions until Round 2, the dreaded Map Round! But it need not be that dreadful—we've already got a great discussion about maps in our RPG Superstar forum (not to mention last year's discussion, and if you want to be inspired, be sure to check out the amazing maps on the Cartographer's Guild. And if you're hankering for a bit of design, check out the Design Challenge and win a custom Paizo.com avatar for your winning effort!

Once again, we'd like to thank everybody for participating in RPG Superstar, both to the entrants and the voters. Just stay on target, and be back here tomorrow for the Top 32 announcement!

If you've ever wondered what Shrodinger's cat was thinking while in the box, there are a little over two hundred people that have an inkling...

Did anyone decide to tell Season 9 to behave?
Behave Season 9! Or no Cookie for you!

or did someone forget to feed the 9 again?

Someone fed it after midnight and it got angry.

Let's just all hit refresh at the same time. Maybe that will help. Oh, are we already doing that?

Those responsible for sacking the people who have just been sacked, have been sacked. We now proceed with the announcements as normal.

I subconsciously strung these two together.

The gremlin in a box both did and did not eat after midnight.

No no no, the cat is fully aware of its status (meow / no meow). It's the people outside who don't know.

Anyone want to calculate the lost productivity that has occurred in the last 23 minutes as people are unable to work, but keep hitting refresh?

Mikko, you're making assumptions about the nature of the cat and quantum physics, etc. You assume, for instance, that cat's own self-awareness matters at all. Which is valid, as the laws of physics as we know them would dictate that is the case, BUT the point of the experiment in a larger sense is how it applies to say electrons -- which only seem to get a position for their electron while being actively observed. Studied have yet to prove if cat's observing electrons "count" for the locating of an electron, etc... :D

I think we should change the title of this blog to "A Series of Unfortunate Delays". ;P

Okay, I'm convinced. The inevitable must have really shown up and start ed taking apart their IT network for abusing the semi-non-linear space-time continuum.

I was really excited to find out the Top 32 yesterday, when I wasn't working. Then I was exciting to learn today before I went into work.

Now I have to leave for work. :(

But you need to load it 32 times, over an old dial-up modem. The 14.4 variety... so first, we need to find one of those THEN we need to find a working landline, because it wont connect to the cellphones we all have, then....

Not technical issues, just vigorous typing by the rubit! Top 32 are now announced and will be receiving their titles/email in the next hour :)

Well, congratulations to the winners, and condolences to some of my favorite items that didn't make it (I'm actually stunned by a few of the ones not on there, but that's the problem with personal lists, y'know). I hope to see some of them on the critique thread, and in the meantime, I can't wait to see what these Top 32 come up with!

Are we still getting the top 100 list?

Congratulations Top 36 (32+ 4 alts)! Expect my comments sooner rather than later.

Owen previously said yes.

But today, now, in this time -- let the Top 36ers have their moment of glory. Go congratulate, etc.

The Top 100 wont likely be available for a time, just like the Critique thread wont open for a bit.

That's cute that you think I'll be seeing the sun at any point before the deadline for Round 2.

It's metaphorical sun, representing the bright light I presume you're using to illuminate your mapping efforts.
