Ok, around 11 hours to go to Top 32 reveal.

I must say I am very excited to see the winners this year, I think this year is definitely going to be a tough one to vote on.

So let me take this opportunity to wish every one of you the very best of luck.

Good luck to everyone!

I going to have to find a good distraction until the moment of reveal, otherwise the wait might be a bit too much of a torture.

Star Voter Season 7

Good luck. And may the odds be... Oh wait.

Just good luck, y'all.

Best of luck to all who entered!

So true. For now, I have my day-job, but since I'm posting here, that's not 100% enough to keep my mind off the contest. Later, I have my kids, cooking, washing up, packing lunches for tomorrow and a monster entry that could use some serious polish (for one, it would be nice to be able to bring it within the required word count).

Still - I suspect I'll be back here frequently until the big reveal.

One thing good of living in Australia: I'll go to bed now and see the result after I get up tomorrow morning

Good luck to everyone. Especially to those who have entered this contest repeatedly and still dream of making the top 32. I hope you have your monsters ready.

And to those of us who do not make it, good luck next year and I hope you learned something this year that will make your next year's entry that much better. I learn something every year.

Good Luck to all!

And a special good luck to all of the other first time submitters! I hope to see a few of us on the list!


Another year of building anticipation, I for one cannot wait for the results to be announced. What I have gleaned from previous years is not to beat yourself up too much and Sean K gave some sage advice which I have taken to heart.

Sean K Reynolds Designer, RPG Superstar Judge, Jan 19, 2011, 01:34 PM

Don't think of it as losing, think of it as there were 36 people (out of several hundred) who submitted a better item than yours.

Many items didn't make the superstar cut, but the judges agreed they were GIFOABOMI (good enough for a book of magic items).

The guy who gets 5th place in the Olympic qualifiers (when only the Top 4 get to advance) isn't a loser... he's still the 5th-best athlete competing that year.

Just remember there were HUNDREDS of item submissions this year. It was a hard fight to make it into the Top 32. If we were issuing letter grades to all the items, many people would get a B, which is still a good grade! At one point we had about 50-60 items in our "keep" pile, and had to whittle that down to just 32+4. That's like filtering out all the B+ and A- submissions and just keeping the A submissions.

Don't let this get you down. There are people who didn't make the Top 32 for the first three years of the competition, but made it in this year. D&D designer James Wyatt got dozens of rejections from Dragon Magazine before he got in. Every actor you see in a movie or on TV has been rejected dozens of times at auditions. Every novelist on the bestseller list has been rejected by publishers, too. Take a look at your work, hear about how you can improve on it, and try again.

Dear Paizo,

You know what would make an awesome 30th birthday present?

Top 32.

I'd like to take this opportunity to send my most sincere wishes of good luck to 31 other contestants.

Any wishes beyond that would be rather insincere.

RPG Superstar 2013 Top 32 , Dedicated Voter Season 6, Star Voter Season 7 aka Standback

Best of luck, y'all.

I've had to sit this year out participation-wise, but I've been following along and I'm really looking forward to spectating this year. I saw an incredible amount of good content in the voting, and I can't wait to see how the contest goes with the new rotating judging panel.

It's gonna be fun. Enjoy, everybody!

+1, LOL.

I do truly wish the best of luck to those who have entered, in this and any other endeavors; with a number of good entries this year, looks like luck, and having just the right appeal to the judge(s) may play a role for any of us in getting our writing advanced, though of course skill, talent, practice, and perseverance still play pretty important roles.

Kudos to all who entered!

EDIT:
I think I put this in the wrong thread... Sorry about that.

Congrats ahead of time to all who win!

Got my lucky underwear on. Batman give me strength (just not necessarily in that particular area).

This is my first year witnessing this contest. I'm really looking forward to seeing the judges' comments on the winning items this year!

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

Good luck everyone!

Silver Crusade Dedicated Voter Season 7

Good luck guys and girls :)

I was happy with my entry though it got some hate, and I look forward to seeing what the people liked as well the judges thoughts on everything. Even if I don't make top 32, this competition has inspired me to really focus on writing and I look forward to maybe trying out some freelance submissions during the upcoming year. I think I am more excited for feedback and discussing my item more so than seeing if I made top 32 or not.

Hats off to the folks who spent numerous weeks and months getting their material in order for this, I hope the hard work pays off for everyone.

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

I wish everyone a solid "May the Swartzh be with you!"

For anyone who does not like yogurt even with strawberries, "Break a leg!"

For anyone the first two did not cover, here is what my mother said to me when I left for the military, and now I share it with you.

Mom wrote:


"May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand."

In short felicitations and good wishes.

Congratulations you did a great job. :)

If I get in, my gaming group is having a party, with rum and Civ V.

If I lose, my gaming group is having a pity party.

With rum and Civ V.

Either way, I'm good.

Best of luck! I'm super-excited to see the top 32 and marvel in wonder at the items!

Best of luck to everyone! I'm looking forward to following the competition once again this year.

45 minutes until the reveal...

Grand Lodge Marathon Voter Season 7

AHHHHHH, I'm super excited! This is my first year watching the contest. It's going to be a lot more fun watching the individuals who make the top 32 go on to create monsters and encounters. I know of a couple designers (by proxy through their items) that I will definitely be rooting for to win it all.

Best of luck to everyone!

Liberty's Edge Marathon Voter Season 7, Marathon Voter Season 8

To those who make it into the Top 32 (including alternates): Congratulations!

To everyone who doesn't make it this year, I hope you learned valuable lessons, did your best and, more importantly, try again next year. I know i will. :)

Very true. Good luck to those other 30 contestants. ;-)

(If I don't get in this year, that rum and Civ V idea sounds really good.)

Before I even check the winner circle, I want to wish everyone the best of luck. I look forward to the post-reveal festivities once I am less tied up with a sick toddler. This is a fantastic community, even if I lurk much more than I post!
