Scary thoughts for the day...

For the first time, Round 1 is open voting

It's anonymous

Therefore...

(scary thought ahead)

It's entirely possible that everyone at Paizo including the Judges have entered just to see where they come on the public scheme of things...

Maybe it's a new Paizo pay review scheme...

(scarier thought ahead)

Or, maybe...

It's just the judges and the bottom most judge entry is getting the pub round in for the other two...


He he, we will never know, all we can tell is it would likely be the items that don't feed me :P

It's been said in the past that it would be looked down upon if a Paizo employee entered (since they're all ineligable)

Also, it's always been just as anonymous as this year. The judges pick their top 32, and then get to see who produced them, not the other way around.

I thought some of the gag items which have mostly disappeared after the cull and seemed pretty spot on the "What to Avoid Guideline Suggestions" with perfect formatting were one or more of the judges. It did not stop me from voting them up when they were better than the item they were paired with.

This thought crossed my mind the other day. They could easily skip over their own entries when picking the top 32. :p

The rules prohibit employees entering as written. Personally I would like to see judges do so, and if they 'win', it would allow them a golden ticket item into their slot.

Most are gone after the cull so not to "compete" possibly just submitted for data voting analysis of a new system.

Honestly, I'm sure the staff and judges have better things to do with their time...

Of course they do, like dropping fireballs on their party and then getting pistol whipped for the effort. I would love to sit at a table with these guys, but not within a 20 foot radius.

I doubt any employees or judges submitted items, even as a joke.

And that includes former-judges, for the record.

I've been tempted, but never given into temptation. I just post gag items, and the occasional "Donna's Dozens" when the muse strikes me.
