w00t!

Submitted my wondrous item!
It started at over 500 words but I managed to trim it down to 199.

Oh, the lost flavour text! You guys are killing me with these restrictions.

Best of luck to absolutely everyone who submitted! I can't wait to see what the winners came up with!

I would also like to know what the total number of entries received was, for my own morbid curiosity, and to get a feel for how many pages the judges had to sift through.

Best of luck to everyone!

In and done and out of the shadows.

-Ben.


Submitted, after third re-write and one complete change of item ... now on to the Submissions Blues board ..... ;)


Woohoo! Tis done! *reaches for a brew*
Now to design me a country! Good luck everyone!


I'm sure I've missed a glaring typo or something...


ugg
I just couldn't rework it any more. I had to give in and submit. May God have mercy on my soul
heh

And it's away!

Good luck to all.


I actually just heard about the contest today, and I didn't really have time to think of anything new. I just changed a few words in an item I created for a character of mine a year ago, and sent 'er in.

That's that.

submitted after i got home from work tonight. felt pretty good about my first attempt, then totally changed my mind and submitted a much cooler item. hope the staff and everyone else agrees.


Well, I finally got it written out and submitted, now I'm just wondering how the time exchange affects the submission deadline. I really suck at time-zones. I think it's pretty cool, I have just a couple of reservations about things I hope may go unnoticed... who am I kidding, gamers miss nothing. Ah, smurfnuggets.

P.S.: Um, I attempted to use "smurfnuggets" as a curse word, and ... my avatar appears to have changed to papa smurf... how? why?

Hah! Welcome to the boards.

As an ongoing, semi-inside joke, any time the word smurf is used, a random smurf avatar appears in place of your regular avatar.

Even if you quote someone, if the word smurf appears in the quote, your avatar will change.

Smurfy.

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2013 , Dedicated Voter Season 6, Dedicated Voter Season 7, Dedicated Voter Season 8, Star Voter Season 9 aka Steven T. Helt

terrifying.


...seriously? ... well, smurf that, man.


And mine's submitted.

Good luck, everyone.


Well, after tearing my hair out since the start of the contest and creating things only to destroy them, I finally settled upon something and I think it will work. This was a lot tougher than I thought! I'm more of a monster maker. ;)

Good luck all!


I'm try to submit, but I'm afraid that the time is over... someone help me, please.

Where may I post my item?


NECRO SMURF!!

Hrmm - I wonder if you created an avatar with smurf in the name, would it change your avatar anytime you posted because of the name?

And I assume it would change anyone who quoted you, since your name would be in the message.

Let's test it.

EDIT: I think it works......I didn't say the magical S word, but you did previously.

No smurfin' way! That's just so smurfin cool. So if someone puts up a really smurfy avatar or is just to smurfin lazy to do so and uses the word 'smurf' a random smurf will appear as the avatar?

So smurfer smurfin cool.

OK Done. From 22 items to 10, to 4, to 2. To 4. To 1, maybe 2! No wait! OK OK one! D'Oh! There can be only ... 32

OK I will also need to post on the 2nd and uncouth pages now.

I make a lot of MI (Bazaar of the Bizarre being my favorite regular). No countries and only a few monsters, so hopefully this will get easier (but not too easy... I do want to play. O:)

Good luck to all.

hi there, everyone. Just wanted to say hello and wish everyone luck who entered the contest. This is my first post here, too, so I guess it serves as my general "introduction" to the community. I see a lot of excitement over the contest, so all the best, and I look forward to seeing what develops.

Oh, yeah!, BtW, I submitted my entry on Monday, and I've managed to NOT second-guess myself until now. fingers crossed...

The only thing that I regret is doing it during a slow time during work, on a whim-- that means I don't know if everything was properly written (english is not my first language, though I did my best).

Ah, You did that, too?

I have to admit; that was the hardest part of the contest. Trying to find the submission process.

I initially clicked under the banner heading to 'log in and submit your entry', and from there, everything else I clicked sent me round and round the FAQ.
As I did it today, and I couldn't remember how far behind Pacific time was, I began to fear I'd missed it.

GGGAAAAHHHH!

I found it eventually, though. I didn't look below the big Superstar banner, since that's a place I'd already been.
I thought there'd be a form with spaces to fill in your real name, address and tel no. I wasn't expecting to do it like a regular post thread, and thought I'd just posted it to all the other members to see (until I saw the acknowledgement).

A bigger shiny button needed next time please, for the sake of my sanity!

94?

You do know you've got to price it up, don't you?

Maybe mine was too clever for its own good...?

Finally got this done... I remade an item I designed back in the times of second edition AD&D, which was hugely popular with my players then. :-)


Wow that was harder than I thought. I had to redo it three times. In the end I just kept it simple stupid. Good luck everyone!

Marathon Voter Season 6

It was far closer then I'm comfortable with but the button has been pressed and may the gods be kind.


Submitted and done. Just hope I didn't goof on the format or language skills.


Sigh... time for my first post... was really excited about all this, but work got in the way of developing my best ideas. So in the end I submitted a simpler item, only to realize three seconds after publishing that I'd forgot something :(


Guess I'd better smurf it next time!

Indeed... I thought I only needed to get rid of my lascivious thoughts and I'd have a PG-13 wondrous item. I came up with an idea but now I have my doubts =/ Even more so about my english...

More than 850 posts

1 out of 20 of those is over the wordcount, according to Clark.

That should bring it back to 800, which means 1 in 25 submissions will earn a spot.

Superstar page......

The deadline for submissions has passed, and the judges are deliberating! From more than 850 entries, only 32 finalists will be chosen to continue in the RPG Superstar competition. The finalists will be announced right here on November 28 at noon Pacific Time. The contestants' next task will be to design a country to the judges' specifications by December 3; their submissions will be revealed on December 5 along with the judges' comments, and then you'll have until December 11 to discuss the entries and vote for your favorite!


Thanks.

So 850 entries... call it 1/20 tossed for wordcount violations... only 32 move on to the next round...

Call it a 1 in 25 chance of advancing. Slightly harder than rolling a critical

fortunately, i have improved AND augmented critical, so i'm all the way up to 1 in 5!


Done, finished, edited....then edited again, and again and again.......ah submitted. :) 200 words exactly now it's the waiting part. I figured either way, good or bad, at least I can say that I tried.I did notice that the turn around time for the country is pretty quick, I'm very curious to see the rules for that part.

Sounds like a case of the purple smurfs to me.

Fortunately, I typed my entry using my falchion, so my odds have improved considerably.

I also need to buy a new keyboard.


There all done, 140 some odd words, 4 normal and some randomness. Now all i do is sit back and pullout my hair until the 28th...oooooh so many days and so little hair :(
