Trying to purge it from my brain. Along with some of these other disgusting items. Some things you just cannot un-read.
Somebody pass Amy the brain bleach...
Maybe we can have Lenses of Unreading?

Anything! I will take any ...

Almost anything. I will take almost anything.

A lot of "negates and stores X ability/spell" items. I gotta get some of these for my big bad NPCs.

And finally, my own item. The perfect reason to take a long break from voting.

Approaching dedicated, still no sight of mine. You are a lucky man.

Weirdly, I am feeling that I may have been DQ'd but I cannot see why when I look at my item as so far, not one comment in this thread can be applied to my item.

(I've normally hit 3 or 4 comments by now).

Started getting a batch of new items... fingers crossed.

What about vague comments about people finding good items and sure top 32 contenders? :D

Lol, I'm not crazy enough to think that - it keeps the disappointment down on reveal day. I just want to know it got seen :)

Has anyone else encountered the identical torcs yet? They literally have the same name and do the same thing. The only real difference is the flavor text.


ZZ gp item wins by being more interesting and better written. A reasonable application of a lash by an editor slavemaster overseer might teach the author to avoid such petty mistakes in the future.

Okay, Seriously.

Would you the RPG Superstar hopeful want one of these for your character?

If "no" then why are you entering this item?
If "yes" then...well...yuck.

Best of Luck

I have seen numerous items Scott's Druid would LOVE!

I haven't seen this yet, but if you suspect they might be the result of someone entering twice, you should see the disqualification thread.

Heh. It's a literal face-off between two items.

I'm sorry, Item Creator, but if you used some of your 300 words to intentionally write a note to me the voter, or me the GM, to further explain how your item might be used, then...no.

If you're going to do interesting things with probability, please actually check the probabilities before you mess with them. The odds of any two out of three d6s coming up with the same number is much higher than you'd think.

That being said, this item is rather appealing from a design standpoint. I wish it weren't up against such a good opponent.

Thanks. There is now cranberry juice in my sinus cavity.


I think it's underpriced and probably should have lower DC with this CL (don't ask 'cause I won't explain to avoid breaking anonymity of the item but it would make {some} sense if I would explain). Still the idea is better than the other one by virtue of being more appropriate for adventurer party (as long as they are not typical murderhobos, that is).

I've seen them both, back to back recently too. They have the same name and powers for the most part only one is slightly more developed with flavor text and editing than the other.

Grand Lodge RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16 , Marathon Voter Season 7, Marathon Voter Season 8 aka Jrcmarine

I wanted to see if anyone else had seen it. They are also formatted differently. If you are moving too quickly you mght not even catch it. I only caught it because I upvoted one thinkng the idea was ok but the author needed to work on flavor. Then I saw another one that had flavor with the same name and mechanic. Keep an eye out for it. Torc paired with a particular race.


Ok, I think that is a deliberate joke about "appears normal" trend.

Regretfully, the last paragraph pushes it into joke item category :/

Possibly related to Wrath of the Righteous? Seems like there'd be some possible banner use there. (We had a character put one together before we got to second level, actually, in my PBP game.)

Hellraiser puzzle box or self-mutilation item? What a tortuous decision to make...

Yay, I got the 1,850,000 item. It is so cool. I did not pick it.

We have a cavalier that used a banner during a gladitorial tournament the group entered.

Anyone have a favorite site/thread that runs through some of the worst official Wondrous Items just for the sake of comparison?

Marathon Voter Season 7

If my character had this item and then had to explain to someone else in the game what the everlasting fudge he was doing with it, my GM would cast bane on his book and beat me into submission, after setting my character sheet on fire. Yuck!

class in a can vs. action economy abuse


As European I forgive you using period as thousands separator in price. Regretfully (for you) the other item is much better showing spark of inspiration greater than decent utility item.

A cute twist on a classic children's story vs. Yucky squishy yuck racial specific item. Yeah no brainer.

Fully half of the word count before finding out what the item does. What it does is...SIAC

Sadly, paired against an item with game effects that can't be quantified.
