*...I don't like this one. Here's why: Once per day the wearer gets to permanently polymorph someone into a goblin (which is fine in and of itself, as that's what baleful polymorph does). But, it automatically charms them and performs a mass charm monster against any other goblinoids within 30 feet? That's a bit odd...and extreme. How long does that charm effect last? Because, eventually, it should wear off. And what's your polymorphed goblin buddy going to do to you then?
*...The later language about every 3rd day inflicting a cumulative -1 penalty on Charisma (up to -6) on a non-goblinoid who wears the mask is kind of harsh and unusually specific.
*...Because of the popularity of Paizo's goblins, wondrous items related to them often seem to be a favorite wondrous item submission. Some have made it through to the Top 32 of prior years. I don't think this one measures up. Vote to Reject.
*...The mechanic of the baleful polymorph doesn't connect to the mechanic of the mass charm.
*...This item requires a touch attack AND a save. That seems wrong to me - it should be one or the other. Reject.
*...And for the low cost of 70,000 gp!
Thank you very much for the time you guys are taking to let everyone know where our submissions went wrong for the judges. It is an incredible amount of work. I have read every critique and have learned a ton.
So, the moral of the story is:
1. Next year streamline the submission. Keep what it does simple with a very cool effect.
2. It should be an item that every PC would want to use.
Thanks again. This is an amazing contest!
