In 2012, there were three Jacobs in the Top 32.

How many Jacobs do you think will be in this year's Top 32?


32 if I have anything to say about it.

Not too long ago I was wondering the same thing. I don't know that it will happen again this year but I wish them luck.

There need to be more Johns.

I'm definitely rooting for the Jacobs.

No. 2 was my favorite and I hope he goes all the way this time. : )

Let's place a Donato in there, too, for variety.

I'm just hoping to see some Erics, especially of the repeating variety ;)

I think I would literally be willing to bet that we will see at least one Jacob, complete with the unofficial official Jacob dragon avatar.

I strongly agree! Too bad my 15 month old son (who has my name) can't yet join us in our efforts to pack the Top 32 with John's.

meh more Jacobs is fine with me. So are repeat Erics, Johns and the token Donato. All I really hope for? How about giving NC a break this year.
Bring on the international! Come on my fellow residents of the 43rd state, we can't miss two years! Represent!

I'm cheering for any women who make it this year.

After the last few years it's going to be strange if NC -doesn't- have someone in the top 32 this year once again. :)

Hey, I just realized something: between us, we've gotten an Eric into the Top 32 for four years running.

We must keep the Eric streak alive! And we must do so by getting both Erics into the Top 32 this year! It's the only sure way to dispel the rampant internet rumor that both Erics are one and the same!

Starts wondering how long it takes to change name to "Eric-a" - female name and Eric - must be a shoo in!

I have to say, I really enjoyed the Jacobs last year. Their entries were quirky and interesting, their demeanors cheerfully good-natured and their avatars kinda weird. I have a feeling we may see at least one of them back this year. I know which one my money would be on...

Go, Jacobs!

Grand Lodge RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32 , Dedicated Voter Season 6, Marathon Voter Season 7, Dedicated Voter Season 8, Star Voter Season 9

I'm sure we'll see at least one Jacob in the top 32. Which one? The one with the dragon avatar, of course. ;-)

I'm hoping that this year too, there'll be a few "international" finalists like myself or Jacob "den danske" Trier. And a few female finalists!

Jacob "den danske" Trier - now, that sure does beat "Jacob #3" as a nickname. Thanks, Mikko "Suomi" Kallio. Nordic countries represent!

Naturally, I'm doing all I can to make sure at least one Jacob makes it to the top 32. I'm also (in no particular order) rooting for:

  • more Jacobs (and Erics, Donatos, Garretts, Anthonys, Mikkos, Johns, Andrews and Chris)
  • more international finalists
  • more female finalists
  • more repeat finalists
  • more newcomers
  • everyone from the 9 blazing months thread

Phew...we're going to need to hit some pretty interesting combinations in the Top 32 to pull that off.

Oooh, invisible airship! I bet that's a wondrous item no one's done before.

I couldn't possibly say, Jacob #2.....

There has yet to be a Coridan make it to the Top 32. Clearly there is a bias!

Ok, so maybe I'm the only person I have ever heard of named Coridan and maybe I only entered one other year so far.

We are doing our darndest to keep the strength of NC from going the way of Taldor.

My first time submitting to RPGSS this year...and I am not alone.

    That's just due to my non-perfect mastery of the English language. Whats the plural of Chris anyway? Chrises? Chris'? Please don't make me have to go ask my wife (who has a degree in English and teaches it in high school). She'll just laugh at me.

    I am hoping that every single entry gets exactly the Same number of votes - lol -can't you just imagine the judges reaction? That way whatever happens I can say "whoo hoo joint first!" - grin
