More serious questions I have seen two separate items listing themselves as "lesser". Doesn't there need to be a "regular" version so you can have a "lesser" and perhaps "greater" versions too?

Stay away from Acers then.
Something you'd like to share with the class?

My disdain is based only anecdotes I've heard from others.

They are hoping Paizo calls and asks for the other versions, too?

Item that should have stopped before last paragraph vs. self-mutilation.

Item with spark and no blood wins.

I just voted for an item with a really narrow field of usefulness because it was really well written and I'd be interested in seeing what else the writer could do. I also have to say though, that I think they've watched entirely too many Bugs Bunny cartoons.
Ah, I see you've found the ACME item.
No, that one I would have referenced Wile E. Coyote. This is a different item entirely that reminded me of one of my favorite Bugs Bunny bits.

Well, that's some moxie.

Just saw a DQ item. :(

Had 299 words, but they left out the spaces before "gp" in both the Price and Cost, making the "real" count 301.

Don't ride the line, folks, or Template Fu will eat you!

Yum!

Oh! Master is dedicated and still hunting for his item!

Oh wow. An actual weapon. I know you guys mentioned seeing them but I finally saw an item that is a weapon. Even says so in the title.

PM the name to SKR, so he can pull it from the line-up.

It can be a decent feature. After all, there's precedent in the staff market.

On another note, just saw an item almost identical to what I would have submitted my first year of Superstar had I ever gotten around to it, except in a different slot. I don't think it's quite Superstar (I could see it in a book of magic items, I suppose) but I upvoted it.


Eye versus seed.


Magic Shovel of Digging !!!!

Cool retraining item, but the name could use some work.


How many Cat Lord items?
I have counted 3.
Was this coordinated?

Dang, where did my Drama Button link go?

In nearly all cases of core items I've seen, it's setting design. A bag of holding functions because you're basically creating a portal to a pocket dimension in the astral plane. So when you mix two items that do that, something weird is bound to happen.

Woo!

50 words vs. 300 words! Epic Pairing!


Item that should be a spell-in-a-can, except there is no such spell yet - it could be decent spell making it decent spell-in-a-can.

Feeling sorry for Cosmo, Disney, Doctor Who and everyone else being blamed, I have decided to out the real culprit...

it is not Cosmo!:

Sean admitted that he had seen the item I had reported, and that he had chosen to leave it in the pool for us all to enjoy.

I leave it to you to decide if the culprit is evil enough to have done this on more than one item ;)


You had well plenty of words left to finish putting details into your item. Instead, should this item be used in one of my games, I would have to grind the game to a halt while I or my player went looking through books to find the proper information to actually make the item work. That won't fly, and it's definitely not Superstar.

I believe you spelled "missile" wrong in your item name, unless you are actually trying to send a message, in which case, your message is "die effer die!"

A lot of items are in forms that seem almost incidental to what they do.

Like a cloak or boots that let you walk through walls make sense. A pair of spectacles that give you the power to eat radium, not so much.

Marathon Voter Season 7

The voting process has heavily re-enforced just how important picking a name is. A large percentage of the time I don't want to read any further after I read the name.

Ahaha, that's a sense of humor I can appreciate. I will gladly downvote items so others can enjoy them.

So if someone makes a spell based on that, does that make it a Wondrous-item-in-a-spell? (WIIAS?)

So it's all SKR's fault? I am strangely comfortable with blaming him.

Poorly formatted bleh vs. cheap, overpowered item that makes casters even more ridiculous.

bleh it is.

I wish people would use the Preview button. My eyes are really hurting from all these items with messed up formats. I'm starting to lose my patience with them and just vote against any item that the creator obviously didn't preview first.

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16 , Marathon Voter Season 6, Marathon Voter Season 7, Dedicated Voter Season 8

Oh, that's clever bordering diabolical genius, item. I vote you down, and you respond by appearing again BESIDES AN ITEM THAT DOES VIRTUALLY THE SAME AS YOU DO!

I guess it's time to break out that ol' "Both Items are equally good/bad" button.

Star Voter Season 7, Star Voter Season 8, Star Voter Season 9

Someone probably already asked this, but what do you like better, long or short - 296 words or 80?
