My eyes were ready to glaze over when I saw the wall of text, but the item description drew me in. Well played.

Star Voter Season 6, Marathon Voter Season 7, Marathon Voter Season 8, Star Voter Season 9

This would be a great item for kingdom building campaigns, or a ruler of a thieve's guild or BBEG. Clever.

Grand Lodge Marathon Voter Season 7

Item name has literally nothing to do with the item.

Marathon Voter Season 7, Star Voter Season 8

Are items with creation costs listed as algebraic values pay what you want items?

Seems OP.

Yes, yes I will vote for an item with no formatting, run on sentences, and bad layout, but a moderately inventive idea over one which is simply a class feature in a can...

*Sigh*

I got these two already! You just switched which side they were on!

Sczarni Star Voter Season 7

That's from a famous movie!
But the paired one is also bad...aaaahhhh


So you spent all that time putting together a pretty good item, very evocative in a creepy sort of way, only to completely blow it on the name.
Hint: Putting three nouns together in a row is not naming something.

Marathon Voter Season 6, Dedicated Voter Season 7

Hummm.... 397 word count vs 288 word count....


You had me until you threw a random origin story in at the end. Sometimes less is more.

Star Voter Season 7

If your item's name includes an item of clothing, be sure to not misspell that item of clothing in the description.
Especially if the description is along 2 lines long.

Got the former.

It could be up against a blank page and it would still lose my vote.

LOL. I know one.

Also awkward are the items that sound like someone has swallowed a thesaurus.

Star Voter Season 6, Marathon Voter Season 7, Marathon Voter Season 8, Star Voter Season 9

Aren't entries over 300 words auto DQ'd? I haven't seen any, so I just assumed they were.

LOL I would pay to see that.

In the interests of not sending people away crying, never to come back to Paizo again, I'll have to refrain. Plus, that's just mean. I'll just continue to sit here and scream profanities at my monitor.

I have to agree, hard to vote for something that will be disqualified tomorrow.

Oh my. I quite like this one.

Grand Lodge Marathon Voter Season 7

Seeing lots of "it is rumored that..." at the end of item descriptions.

Shadow Lodge Marathon Voter Season 6, Marathon Voter Season 7

Permanent version of one of the most powerful buff spells in the game. HECK NO.

RPG Superstar 2015 Top 8 , Star Voter Season 6, Star Voter Season 7, Star Voter Season 8 aka DeathQuaker

Far too many items along the lines of:

"This seemingly ordinary thing does all of the following!:

- spell in a can
- weapon/attack in disguise
- spell in can
- one actually awesome idea which if the writer had spent time developing and describing it instead of padding and overcomplicated the item with several other abilities, probably would have been superstar, but in the current circumstances, isn't."

The lost potential makes me sad.

(The fact that my own item starts to cross into this territory is about expected.)


Why did you wrap your decent concept into such a ridiculous package? Why?!

Questions:
How many items got submitted?
Will we always be seeing the crappy ones that violate the 27 rules, are insanely cheap or powerful, etc? Or are they purged over time.


Don't *headdesk* put *headdesk* proper names *headdesk* in the name *headdesk* of your item.

I know who Tenser, Mordenkainen, and Nystul were. I have no idea who Brindlesnoot (Note: Not the actual name used in the item! I made it up.) is, therefore dropping his/her name doesn't make your item any cooler.

Yes.

Marathon Voter Season 7, Star Voter Season 8

When you can't think of an item you must WHIP IT. Whip it real good.

So is 2014 the year of the whip or something?

RPG Superstar Season 9 Top 32 , Marathon Voter Season 6, Marathon Voter Season 7, Champion Voter Season 8, Marathon Voter Season 9 aka GM_Solspiral

facepalm item... didn't Peter from Faliy Guy waste a wish on this?

Marathon Voter Season 6, Dedicated Voter Season 7

Do I vote for the Weapon of Wondrous Item or the Spell in a Can? I don't like this SIAC very much, but the weapon is bound to be disqualified.....

RPG Superstar 2015 Top 8 , Star Voter Season 6, Star Voter Season 7, Star Voter Season 8 aka DeathQuaker

Also: SPELL NAMES ARE NOT CAPITALIZED.


I saw an item that I would call Fizban-in-a-can...

I can't decide if my item is clearly superior to the items I'm seeing because it avoided all of the stupid pitfalls, or if it obviously fell prey to them.

Sigh.

Silver Crusade

I'd love to put those on...

Shadow Lodge Marathon Voter Season 6, Marathon Voter Season 7

Horribly, horribly underpriced.

Well, I've hit my first day goal of 300 different items. So see you guys tomorrow!

"When combined with another, more expensive item, this item does something new!" Is this on the drinking list?

Star Voter Season 7

Ooh, found my first class-in-a-can.

If not, it should be.

Happy voting everyone! Too tired for now, brain hurts.

Marathon Voter Season 6, Marathon Voter Season 7, Marathon Voter Season 8, Marathon Voter Season 9

Kids.... Ewwww....

Star Voter Season 7

Seen so many items that don't include the item name in the body.

part of me feels like i should really be voting, and part of me is reading some of these comments and remembering just how brutal wading through items before the cull was last year...

It's better than last year, but still...

How and when does the cull occur?


Ultimately, this is a writing contest. An entry that is super short doesn't give me any glimpse of how you write (and probably doesn't have enough information to get me interested in your item).

Silver Crusade

[**]Is it DM or GM? Oh, now I'm confused...[/**]

Someone really needs to come up with a **sarcasm font***

I vote for the item that will get disqualified over the legal but crappy item.
