RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16 aka Clandestine

Silas McDermott was among the top 16, but elected to drop out of the competition before voting closed, allowing the 17th-highest vote-getter to advance.

Hey, why did that happen?! :( I loved your country.

Sovereign Court

Congratulations, gentlemen and lady. You're shining examples to us all!

RPG Superstar 2008 Top 32 aka Qor

Congratulations! I've been looking for a new villain in my game (I think my reoccurring villain is about to meet her maker in the next game or two) and I can't wait to see what you guys come up with!

RPG Superstar 2008 Top 32 , Star Voter Season 7

Congrats to all that made it, and a round for those who did not. Now that I'm out of the contest, my money's on Boomer to win it.

So my question becomes, how long do I get to keep the Top 32 tag?

Liberty's Edge RPG Superstar 2008 Top 32, 2011 Top 16 , Star Voter Season 6, Star Voter Season 7, Star Voter Season 8, Star Voter Season 9 aka JoelF847

Great job all of you! I'll be waiting to read what you've come up with next week.

Paizo Employee Senior Software Developer

You get to keep the Top 32 tag until we either do another contest, or we get tired of seeing them sometime in the next year or so. ;-)

Legendary Games, Necromancer Games

Congrats to everyone who advanced, and also to those who competed but didnt advance! There was some truly good stuff here.

Ok top 16, time to get working on that villain! The stakes are high and it is really time to bring that A-game, as they say.

I think it is clear from this round that mediocrity, even excellent mediocrity, is not going to cut it. I also think it is clear that while our voting public might allow a misstep or a gonzo choice to "see what they will do later," that "later" is "now." So its time to bring it. :)

For you top 32 who didnt make top 16, I think the idea was to let you keep the top 32 tag for a while, perhaps even for a long while. But that is Gary/Vic/Erik/Lisa's decision, not mine :) [hey look, Gary beat me to the post]

Let me also add that it has been my pleasure to judge this excellent competition and that I feel everyone is doing a great job and conducting themselves very well.


Excellent Job. Inspiration for the rest of us fools.

RPG Superstar 2008 Top 32

Congrats and good luck to all!

RPG Superstar 2008 Top 32 aka darthfrodo

Congratulations to all of you. As I posted in my thread, this has been a great learning experience and I am very eager to see what you who have advanced can come up with now.
I for one shall be unbiased but demanding in my choice. May the worst villain win! :)

Congrats to all, and ubercongrats to the 16! You've passed trial by judge and trial by jury. Way to go!

How many votes in this round, by the way? 3?

While no-one loves anime fuelled goodness more than me, I think I'll put a fiver on Erik Anderson.

If you're taking Erik I'm going to go with Chrstine.

While I think both of the candidates above are solid choices to bet on, lets not forget about James MacKenzie. His writing was original and evocative. But IMHO this thing is still wide open. I will confess that I do have a few favorites after the first two rounds, so its going to be fun seeing if they can continue to impress in this round.

Congrats to the 16! You earned it!

Legendary Games, Necromancer Games

Dont forget Sam (aka Mr. Migrus) and James or Rob or Alex or even Jason. Plus there is my dark horse William McNulty--in my view he was the biggest diamond in the rough and thus has the most chance to show a real jump. Of course, that is not to say that Boomer and Christine are not also front runners. They are!

The bottom line is that this thing is wide open!!!

Any of the top 16 clearly have the game to go all the way.

RPG Superstar 2008 Top 32 aka Aotrscommander

Yes, congratulations to the winners!

(Guess I'll be finishing of my re-write of Kerpiquan after all!)

To the winners, all i can do is quote that great stateman, Emperor Palpatine:

"We shall be watching your career(s) with great interest!"

Congratulations to all the competitors and to the Top 16! I'm expecting truly vile villains in Round 3.

Scarab Sages

Go team!


Woot! Congrats to all! Glad to see Boomer's Celts meets Rakhasa land in there!

Liberty's Edge

Excellent work and congratulations to you all!

And I'm really glad to see that not only my top 5, but my entire "top 9" (that I was having terrible trouble narrowing down to 5) made it through!

Can't wait to see your villains folks.


Well done all of you! I'm pleased to see that every country in the top 16 was one that I thought worthy of it.

Congrats all! I'm amazed how many of the countries blew me away!


Congratulations Top 16! Now bring me a villian that will rule them all...I DEMAND IT!


Congratulations!

It was very impressive to see everybody's hard work and creativity on display.

The Exchange

Well done to you all.

This is a superb contest.

RPG Superstar 2008 Top 32

Congratulations to the top 16. I am also excited to see that some of my favorite entries made the cut. I have been honored to share this space with some truly creative and talented individuals. It has been my pleasure to learn from each of you through your submissions, comments, and from the judges through their intent and very accurate criticism.

Good luck to you all!

Congrats to the Top 16. It would appear that it's time for me to put aside my dreams of RPG writing and concentrate on doing the best operations I can do. God, that sounds so sappy; I'll totally keep writing RPG material if only for my own use. Anxious to see hwat all of you guys come up with next.

Hey, don't give up. This is a decathalon, and not a single event.

You might still be the best adventure writer out there, so keep at it.

Don't stop believin'...:)

But really, you have talent don't be afraid to put it out there again.

And congratulations to the top 16. Great job guys and gals!

Can't wait 'till next round.


Awesome job by all! I must admit I was a little leery after seeing some of the magic items that made the cut, but several authors redeemed themselves admirably and proved the three judges correct by nominating them for the next round.


Good, good stuff. I'm just pleased that my votes weren't the kiss of death for the folks I voted for. Everyone I voted for made it through! Yay me!

Plus I gotta' say looking back at some of the other 16 who I didn't vote for, that they really deserve it too. Looking back through all the entries (I cut and pasted them to peruse offline) I really have to say I'm falling in love with each of them more and more as I study them over.

Hope to use all of them at some point in the future, just cause something this awesome needs to be used. It's like cooking up a fine meal and not eating it. Just plain wrong I tell you!

So yeah, congratulations to all. I'm really looking forward to where the contest goes from here. I'm obsessed.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Lost Omens Subscriber

Congratulations to all the top 16!

I think all of my choices made it in as well. A great job to all the competitors on these places submitted. You have seriously fueled my own imagination to create new worlds with some inspiring reading.

Hope that's not too sappy; congrats again.

RPG Superstar 2008 Top 32 aka Sheyd

Congratulations to those that made it in!

As a contest entrant I can say wholeheartedly that I enjoyed the process.

Effective Feedback is one of the things so hard to get in any creative endeavor, most of the time editors don't have the time to give anything more then a 'We're not buying it' to those they turn down so this contest aside from a gem of an idea, is one of the best forums for getting direct feedback. I look forward to the proceeding rounds producing truly stellar results that all of us get to enjoy.

Once more Paizo demonstrates why it is a Top Star in the industry and why it engenders such loyality from its customers and creates a community out of gamers that come to its messageboards. It's like coming Home or more aptly it's like coming into the basement/garage/attic where the dice are always rolling, the dungeons are always deadly and the character sheets are there in multitude.

Thank you Clark Peterson, thank you Wolfgang Baur, thank you Erik Mona, thank you citizens of this community and thank you Paizo, you have all never failed to bring to this game we all play hours of fun and joyful frustration.

Once more Congratulations to the top 16!

Thank you everyone that voted of me. Also, thank you Clark. I believe this is my round to polish that diamond and shine. I hope.

COngrats to the top 16; I can't wait to see your villains! Also congrats to the 16 who didn't make it; you've still done a great job! To everyone out there who even tried, don't give up! If you had the drive to even try, then you've probably got something to offer. Keep on trying, use all of the comments from the judges, the contestants and your fellow gamers here, and strive for improvement. There are always opportunities out there! :)

RPG Superstar 2008 Top 32 aka Spar

Now that we (the contestants that have not carried on and the community in general) are aware of what the judges and community wants, I believe Paizo and the publications that the Judges are part of (Wolfgang :) are probably going to get a lot more queries for their slush pile. Of course I could be wrong :)

Paizo is smart. They are not taking open submissions currently. Hence the contest.
