RPG Superstar Contest Relaunch

Tuesday, March 17, 2020

We welcome Roll For Combat into our fold of licensed partners! Roll For Combat will continue to create Pathfinder, Pathfinder Society, Starfinder, and Starfinder Society actual play podcasts, as well as manage the recently relaunched RPG Superstar contest.

.

“We love playing in the systems and worlds that Paizo develops, and being able to contribute to even a small part of the Pathfinder and Starfinder universe is a dream come true,” said Stephen Glicker, owner of Roll For Combat and host for the RPG Superstar contest.

“We were also huge fans of the original Paizo RPG Superstar contest, and having the opportunity to not only bring it back but to grow and enhance the contest is an exciting project that we hope to do every year going forward.”

.

Roll For Combat creates the actual play podcasts Three Ring Adventure, a play-through of the Pathfinder Extinction Curse Adventure Path; Tales From The Black Lodge, an episodic podcast featuring the Pathfinder Society game system and rotating guests and players; The Fall of Plaguestone Podcast, a play-through of the Pathfinder Adventure; and The Dead Suns Adventure, a play-through of the Starfinder Adventure Path.

In addition, Roll For Combat just relaunched the RPG Superstar Contest! The contest is now live, with over 100 prizes, dozens of winners, and lots of other surprises! Contestants will be challenged to make their very best Pathfinder 2nd Edition monster, with a special end-destination planned for the very best entries of the content!

"Roll for Combat brings great podcasts and articles to the Starfinder and Pathfinder communities, and their love of gaming shines through everything they produce. We're excited to see what they bring to life under the RPG Superstar contest!" said Jim Butler, Paizo VP of Marketing and Licensing.

The Roll For Combat Patreon page allows subscribers to access episodes early, view live recordings of all of their shows, and much more!

Learn more and find links to the Roll For Combat podcasts, blogs, reviews, events, store, and more at rollforcombat.com. Roll For Combat also hosts one of the largest and active online Society lodges at discord.rollforcombat.com/ and recently relaunched the RPG Superstar contest at rpgsuperstar.com.

Adventures Ahead!

It's not what it was—only one round, one monster—but I'll still be involved as much as I can. Huzzah!

Woohoo!

The kind of community that RPG Supeerstar brings together is always the best part of the competition for me.

We are so excited about this! I think folks will really like what were doing with the RPG Superstar contest. We don't have the series of rounds, but winners will be published right out of the gate. This is a chance to really show off a bunch of new talent and grow our hobby.

FYI, everyone, it's not one round, it's two rounds. The first round gets the top 101 monsters and is judged by RPG professionals. The second round is public and ranks the monsters into the winning tiers.

It's a bit different, but that was done to accommodate the judges and after a lot of feedback from past judges of the RPG Superstar contest.

I do think its fair though, but that's just because I was bit annoyed about several different types of ice swords making it past the public vote multiple years in row :'D I mean they are cool, but it kept happening

Ice swords are definitely...cool. As flametongues are so hot right now.

But nothing beats filigree!!!

This post I made back in 2014 is old and much of it is focused on Pathfinder 1st edition design, but a good bit of the flavor elements are still very relevant.


What we really need to follow this one up is a celebrity battle-to-the-death - previous Paizo contest top 32+ ers design a small city, to be celebrity judged by Elminster (if Mr. Greenwood is not keeping him too busy elsewhere) and rated by Elminster on the basis of convenience of tobacco shops and pipe-merchants and entertainment venues.
And then the public could possibly have a popularity contest, and if Paizo wanted to do some publicity thing they could release a compilation of the cities and claim that all proceeds were being contributed to fight Urgathoa (who admittedly does need occasionally putting in her place, given her lack of fashion sense), instead of going towards fitting Vic and Lisa's secret dungeon lair out with replacement luxury chain items.
