Tropes of the 2015 Superstar Class

1) Earthbreakers- not bad but they are this year's Torc
2) Dimensional Door items- I even made one in another thread!
3) Diarming Shields- which is oddly specific
4) Trees- because "I AM GROOT"
5) Thieving rings- not quite as baqd as the thief replacement items off last year.

The good news is several of these are done really well, the bad news is the good sometimes gets lost in the shuffle with the bad.

Good luck though.

don't forget swords that are only good for judgmental holy warriors of light, because the rest of the world just isn't PURE enough to have a sword of awesomeness

Dedicated Voter Season 8, Dedicated Voter Season 9

that item would have been awesome if costed appropriately.

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

the rest of us have to make due with swords of mediocrity

Damn Karma! *shakes fist at universe*

While I will neither confirm nor deny my ability to influence shifts in karma, and I will note that while yes, I do fight dirty, I would like to make it clear that I have absolutely no power or responsibility over what you get in the voting pool.

As evidenced by my own insane voting pool luck. :)

Item for a non-Pathfinder RPG (Wut? Really?!)

Item with somewhat-botched formatting and includes unnecessary backstory?

(Pathfinder item wins.)

Is it the [redacted] or the [redacted] I need you to pick one name for your item and use it all the way through

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

items with MPD (multiple personality disorder)


Ugh. Is it too much to ask that you break your description into paragraphs for ease of reading? A simple line break would do wonders.

OK, look. I know it isn't any fun to die, but items that only activate their main ability with the users death just aren't Superstar.

hey Feros, how many pots of coffee did it take you in 2013 and 2014 to get that shiny Champion voter status tag?


There's a whole lot of chain shirts, hide armor, and full plate. Would liked to have seen more variation in armor types. There are a few, and one in particular is just kooky and cool enough to make my Top 32.

I had one which was essentially (changing deets around here),

"This +2 Greataxe deals 2d6 damage on a successful hit, weighs 8 pounds, and has a crit value of 19-20/x2"

We have that, it's called a +2 Greatsword!

On the plus side, someone here made a comment that could only have been about my item and it wasn't unfavorable.

Yes! The 694th unique item I have seen is my very own! And it only took around 750 votes to see it! Woot! :)

why does every sword have the word "blade" in its title, you can get a thesaurus online now ya know....

RPG Superstar 2015 Top 8 , Dedicated Voter Season 7, Dedicated Voter Season 8 aka moon glum

Just given the sheer number of earthbreakers, odds are at least one of them makes the top 32.

Not coffee, but caffeine and sugar. LARGE amounts of caffeine and sugar. :)

far too many staves that are clearly themed after a certain ancient doctor like dude who's name shall remain unsaid. Paging doctor McSteamy...

ahh so Pepsi Co. enjoys superstar season, makes sense :)

Yeah, there are a lot of items where it seems like the designers wanted to stretch into a particular design space, but weren't comfortable stepping away from what they thought were the "best" types of items. It messes with the theme and ends up making items seem disjointed.

Example: Let's say I want to make a suit of armor with earth-based abilities. Down and dirty stuff. Rough. Unfinished. Something that would serve a fighter well. While a shiny set of mithril full plate would arguably be the best stuff mechanics-wise, I should be looking at this like a designer, not an optimizer. Mithril doesn't scream "earthy." In fact, it's the opposite. If I want to fit my theme, I'd go with stoneplate. Designed right, the magic armor should be attractive enough to get someone to wear it, even if its base type isn't optimal.

*Edit: I picked this theme because I hadn't seen it in any items. Now, of course, I suddenly get earth-themed items. However, these aren't displaying the point I was making above.
