After the 32 are chosen


RPG Superstar™ 2008 General Discussion


Like many here, I'm assuming my item is still in the running, though some of Erik's and Clark's recent comments are finally starting to stress me out.

Running with that assumption, I've been envisioning what this contest will look like as I work on the next submission. In doing that, I was wondering if there will be a separate message area where the contestants can chat amonst themselves if they desired, or if some way for them to contact each other would be possible. In my fantasy of how this contest would run, I'd see it as a friendly (though serious) challenge, and I know I wouldn't mind helping where I could on someone's entry if they wanted an extra set of eyes, along with appreciating the ability to do the same with my entry. Heck, I'd even love the option to toss ideas around with another contestant to see if it would improve both our entries. Doing that sort of brainstorming in the public space seems inappropriate at best.

I realize not everyone would want this sort of pre-exposure, but if there were a small number of us that did, would the allowance of that be possible without having to, say, post our email address to the main public board?


I kinda hope each section gets its own board. This has been a lot of fun and a great way to work off the stress from the rest of life.

I'd lie to say that I don't want to be in the top 32, but there's a real interest in being free to just comment on every entry without the concern of bias.

I gotta say that I'm pretty interested in following the contest (and actively participating) however it goes.

Ohhh definitely. IMO, if I make it into the top 32, even if I don't go any further, my freelancing resume for the next 6 months - 1 year is written. So I'd love to see a very friendly competition. (Granted, I'd love to win, but I'd be satisfied if I go even a single step.)

Ditto to that, my man. Ditto to that! :)

While the judges are D&D product professionals, they are still just basically normal, everyday, opinionated people like the rest of us, so as the resident board misanthrope, I predict an awful lot of, “Item X beat my item to the 32? Rubbish!”

Not even close. None of us had any "personal investment" in items to that degree. We are very proud of our judging process. None of that stuff happened at all.

Well, I mean, except for that time I had Wolfgang sneak over to Mona's house, tie him up, log on as him and hit the keep button on three key items that I loved

IN YOUR FACE MONA!!!!!

Actually that never happened :) But I did see a shadowy figure sneaking around my back door... it looked alot like Mona but I cant be sure.
