That was a year 1 lesson for me... I tried to pass off a rock that basically acted like a tape recorder with rules on how it dealt with magic sound. Turned into an overly complex mess.

Crazily enough, that sounds *exactly* like the item I submitted last year (my first year) -- Echoing Stones. It made the Top 100, but was definitely not Superstar.

I've never seen an attack with a range on 1200 feet before. O.o'


And there's S&M item #2.

Just broke a tie with a comma. Both mediocre items that need some work to be clearer. Both had good template use but one used commas for the thousands gp separator and the other used nothing.

Feels weird, as formatting at that level is the last thing I look at.

Lack of a thousands separator is one of my pet peeves. But then I'm an accountant and spend all day looking at numbers.

However, I spent long enough working at a Japanese company that I readily forgive using a period as the separator instead of a comma.

Well, that item is clearly unbalanced, and probably counts as cursed/evil, as well. Going with the gardening tool.

Evil items are okay, cursed ones aren't. Some pretty good gardening tools though.

I can't tell if the writer of this item is a cheesed out superstitious barbarian looking for loopholes, or his ally, the exasperated cleric, trying to keep him alive. Either way, it shouldn't work the way they want it to.


That item might have been Superstar, had it been entered three or four years ago.

Ok, it is good your item has charges, so why do none of the abilities use those charges?

And you on the other side, you have charges that your super OP ability should use.

Psst...that item you made. I know what the base item is called, but despite what it says in the name, it's not really one of those. It's actually more like a pick and...ah, you'll figure it out.

Sczarni RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32 , Champion Voter Season 6, Champion Voter Season 7, Champion Voter Season 8, Champion Voter Season 9

So you named your item one thing and spent the rest of the sentence explaining how it isn't that one thing, but another thing that already exists.


Wow. Sudden burst of froggy items.


Um, that construction requirement appears to be missing a noun.

Sczarni RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32 , Champion Voter Season 6, Champion Voter Season 7, Champion Voter Season 8, Champion Voter Season 9

So this item uses charges, but how many charges does it have?

Not sure what item that you speak of. If it doesn't say most items start with 50 unless otherwise stated. Staffs are an exception and can hold up to 10 unless the description says differently.

http://paizo.com/pathfinderRPG/prd/magicItems.html About halfway down in the Charges, Doses, and Multiple Uses section. It's in the core rulebook as well as a few other places too.

I LIKE CAPITAL LETTERS vs. This item really is nothing like what I just told you it was.

And they both equally borked the formatting in different ways...

Edit:And I just saw the/a Dresden item. Not too shabby, compared to Holy, Holy, Holy over there.

With some rewriting and edits, there is soo much fun stuff in round 1.

I believe it's 50 if disposable, 10 if rechargable.

Most armor and weapons I've seen (and their respective special properties) typically use a system of 5 (either starting each day with 5, and using up, or building up to that maximum).

They're not functioning off of the charges system. If you have daily uses the price is reduced up until 5/day, well, actually 4/day, 5/day is full price.

I was referring to items like the Risen Blade and the Wyrmsbreath shield ability, which build up and expend charges in order to fuel powers. Doesn't have a set number of daily uses, and isn't the same as a staff or an ultimately expendable ring, but rather a variation upon a theme.

Dedicated Voter Season 8

Somewhere in the middle of my 3rd hundred of votes I saw my item! And it was paired with not-so-bad one. Hope that this is good sign... Or not?

RPG Superstar 2015 Top 32 , Marathon Voter Season 8 aka Laik

Actually, pairing seems less and less random now. Anybody knows if the program starts pairing items with similar ratings, even before any culling?

RPG Superstar 2014 Top 32, RPG Superstar 2013 Top 16 , Marathon Voter Season 6, Marathon Voter Season 7, Marathon Voter Season 8

I wonder if I should take a bit of a break from the voting until the cull.

Yet another example where a 200K+ price tag on one of the items makes voting easy.

Especially when said item has a massive drawback. Yes, I planned on becoming one of the wealthiest people in the world simply so I could cripple myself with magical items. And now I've finally managed to do so!

Dedicated Voter Season 8

I saw for now only one item with the price 200k+ which actually can be ordered by someone with that amount of money. All other items in this price range failed my test of "who'll craft/who'll by this thing".

Dedicated Voter Season 8

I do not like - really, not at all - items that cannot even make up their mind about what they want to be called. Your title calls you one thing, silly item, but literally the next line calls you something else.

And you, other item, I don't NEED three different names for the same thing. I'm not against high word count, but spend it telling me something I care about. Please?

Other than that, I actually feel that most votes at this point are between items that are close enough that sorting which one is better is actually relevant. Even if I know which one that is 10-20 seconds into the timer. That just means I get to work on map idea #3 for a while. Wait, make that #4. #3 doesn't need more development at this point.

I don't take points off for leaving the bold tag in the title or for leaving the title out of the body of the post.

Those are pretty easy mistakes to make, especially the former. Leaving the tag in the title comes from over thinking it, not neglect.

I was totally annoyed when I was voting you up because your item looked like revision 5 of my old entry The Listening Stone. Yours was much better than my first effort for sure.

I was in the top 100 with you with Shadow Archer's Gage

In 3 years I've logged somewhere between 8-9k votes. It does get less random and more and more you'll see similarly ranked items next to each other. This is the effect of voting sorting stuff out.

Marathon Voter Season 8

So, when you don't or only rarely see a specific item, does that mean it is mostly being voted up? Mostly being voted against? Does it only mean that it is being voted consistently up or down but which one is not known? Or does it not mean anything at all?

I keep vacillating between optimism (because I think my item is among the best I have seen) and fear (because nobody is talking about it and I worry that it is too subtle to please the populace).
