Not sure who to vote for?


RPG Superstar™ 2008 General Discussion

Paizo Employee Creative Director, Starfinder aka Robert G. McCreary

As we come to the final day of voting, I thought there might be some people who just can't decide where to cast their last vote or two.

If this is your situation, may I humbly suggest Iskandria?

Let's break it down, shall we?

  • Like scantily-clad sorceresses in jungle heat? Iskandria's got 'em!
  • Like dinosaurs? Iskandria's got 'em!
  • Like gnomes, and afraid of 4e dispensing with them entirely? Iskandria's got 'em!
  • Like hobgoblins, but with krenshars? Iskandria's got 'em!
  • Like god-kings (and who doesn't?) Iskandria's got 'em!
  • Like ziggurats? Iskandria's got a thousand of 'em, covered in gold and lapis lazuli!
  • And lest we forget, MONKEY GOBLINS!!! Iskandria's got 'em!

I hope everyone else is having as much fun with this as I am. Hope to see you in the next round. :)

To my fellow Superstars: Feel free to add your own last minute voter appeals here. We're all in this together!

Dark Archive Contributor, RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4

He's right, folks! Iskandria has, in fact, got 'em!

Along with one of my votes, may I add.

Wait! What's that you say? Well, you're right - unfortunately, Iskandria does NOT have Rakshasa. Not a one.
And certainly not FIVE!

But don't look sad, little boy! Why, Cyrehllan has some, along with:

- An over-stock on "y's" - you can take some home with you for the kids! Absolutely free!
- Cold weather! You're wearing a hoodie & parka - and so is your PC!
- Opportunities for advancement - in a land this disorganized, maybe YOU can be King!
- Drow! Presumably, a whole crap-load of them, all eager to fight you!
- Not very many DM's Secrets! Add some of your own! Maybe, like, another villain!
- DragonLance stuff! Video-game stuff! Derivative stuff! You've already played it, basically!
- Did we mention the "y's"? Add some to YOUR name! Please! We have too many!
- Intense, baroque, florid, heavily-adjectived, over-adverbed prose. How much? 1000 words of it! That's a LOT!
- Your contact is a drunken poet very specifically NOT named James Joyce . . . OR Dylan Thomas!

*grin*

I am, I'd like to think, my own harshest critic.

Again, this has been wonderful - and I eagerly await the next round.

"Bereket? Yeah, it's all right I suppose."

tweet, tweet

"Hm? Oh, a bird. Whatever. Yeah, but that whole thing about BIG SECRETS and stuff? Please. I mean... "

purr, purr

"Oh, hey there little kitty. Aren't you cute... let me scratch behind your ears. Oh, yeah, that's a good kitty.

"Now, as I was saying, Bereket... who wants to vote for that? Now, if you really want to vote for a good country, the one you should vote for... "

ROWRRRRRRRR

"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA....."

wowowowowowowowowowowowowowoowowowowow

"Huh. What happened? I guess I shouldn't have tried to pet that leopard. Oh well, it's all my fault. One must be respectful of nature's creatures. Now, what was I saying? Oh yeah, vote... for... Bereket... it... is... teh... awesome... the... very... best... country... that... there... is... vote... early... and... often... tell... your... friends... all... your... vote... are... belong... to... us..."

Ah, what the hey, voting's nearly over, but anyway...!

Vote for Kerpiquan!

What other country gives you a subtropic island full of unspecified threats and mysteries? Where else can you explore the long-forgotten ruins of twelve undefined civilisations? We have mysterious, baffling and unexplained and above all spoooooky weather, garishly-clothed black humans with difficult to pronounce names, tax-farming buracrats, hobgoblin tribes and judicial trials!

FEAR the vaguely unspecific 'Strange events!'

LEARN to speak Isquana!

MARVEL at the extensive legal, taxation and voting systems of the Quanites!

SAIL around an undisclosed number of small islets!

EXPLORE the depths of ruins of an ominous and foreboding yet strangely undetailed dead civilisation to aquire vague magical secrets and hazy forgotten knowledge - sometimes underground!

DAMN my distressing perfectism and self-deprecating humour to the point I can't do this seriously!

SHAKE your head at what is probably a play for sympathy but more likely an attempt at humour!

VOTE for Kerpiquan!

Remember, only Kerpiquan has TAX-FARMING BURACRATS!!!

Bah! Terram has everything you might want: Art, culture, religion, a really gigantic library, and thousands of spear-wielding legionares. Well, except iron. But who needs iron, really?

You guys are cracking me up. I suspect I'd enjoy gaming with all of you.

Sadly, however, I can only vote for 5.

To make it fair, I think I'll just go in and click 5 random buttons.

Sovereign Court RPG Superstar 2008 Top 16, 2010 Top 4 aka Alexander MacLeod

I'm here for you, too.

If you vote for the Freeholds of Karistynia, you'll get not just all the wonderful zombie fieldhands your plantation-fief can hold, but a fancy new dueling jacket for the rakish aristocrat in you life.

But that's not all!

If you act now, the Freeholds will also send you an autographed copy of Eldane Rax's So You Want to "Go Into Politics", a 30 gp value, absolutely free!

So, sip on a tasty mint julip, and cast a vote for the Freeholds. Then, because you can now feel good about yourself, cast some votes for some of these other nice Superstars.

Imagine you're a pioneer and you have staked your claim on a farm out on the frontier. Now say you've dug a well to water down your livestock out on the open range. Your son Timmy wanders off and ends up falling into that well.

In any of the other countries, you're screwed.

The Ghost Hound Kinships of the Rolling Plains have your back, assuming you can figure out what that barking means.

Timmy's blood is on your hands.

After seeing that I would change all 5 of my votes to Yithnai if I could.

If your characters are stressed out, overworked, or just plain tired, vote for Steppenland. There are just no opportunities for adventure there. ;-)

Ok, this made me laugh outloud... and I'm at work.

People get nervous when the call auditor laughts.

That's a job title I'm not familiar with. Pray tell, what does a Call Auditor do?

Vote Eluraelon. Picked for "Year's best tropical vacation" six years running by the Sahuagin Swimmers Society.


Seriously, though, remember that we're looking for superstars here, so don't forget to consider each wondrous item from round 1 while you're voting for entries in round 2.

I won't be so gauche as to shamelessly promote my country's entry like some of my peers. I refuse to remind everyone about the demons of the earth hiding beneath the idyllic jungle setting of Ulmlinzi-Kiwanja. I also don't want to hog the spotlight by re-iterating the internal strife of extremists sabotaging and attacking logging operations, nor the escaped demonic influences attempting to free their brethren to indulge in wanton slaughter.

Now that voting is over, can authors post comments on their thread? Thanks!


Just finished reading everything above. Awesome! All of you deserve to be in the next round. Thanks for the laughs.

Listen in on calls in the call centre, for quality and professionalism. When I start laughing they worry I'm listening to their calls.

Well, I'm not the kind of guy who leaves a beautiful, glowing, hyper-elven anime girl disappointed.

My fellow 16, I'm starting a new thread for us to hype and pimp our entries in the closing 48 hours of the round - without, obviously, adding to our submissions and thereby DQing ourselves.

For the record, I'd love it if my brothers from last round (W.C, Joel Flank, Chad Patterson, Ross Byers, Alex Handley, I'm looking at you) wanted to come in and stump for any of us - the moment of "Hi, I'm Al Gore - and I will vote for Obama," if you will.

Since this is the last day of voting, I would appreciate a few more votes for my forlorn Haunter of the Hills. There are some things that I should have done differently, but she has her charms.

If I am given the opportunity to move forward, I have a handful of monsters that will make your players shiver in their boots.

On the other hand, if I don't move forward, don't be surprised when a bunch of short-tempered, rust-stained dwarvish miners shows up at your door. They're a testy bunch, especially when they've been drinking.

As I was saying, since this is the SECOND-TO-LAST day before voting closes...
