Don't tell me how you think my monsters should react to your item. Just focus on creating a good item.


Got a few people playing with the whole idea of gladiatorial combat this year.

Abandon all hope!

Do I want to break the game using A, or break the game using B. I hope the next cull doesn't wait to Monday.

I don't have time for lunch today, but I do have time for a
quick snark

[Item]! [Item]!!!!!! If I did have time for lunch today, you'd be giving me indigestion!

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

So your item lets me put something inside me safely. So what happens when I no longer have the item??? What happens to the something, What happens to ME???

Please raise your right hand and repeat after me:

"I do solemnly swear that before submitting my next RPG Superstar entry, I will take 10 seconds to open the rules for Detect Magic and see what my item's aura power should be. I also do swear to mercilessly downvote any item whose designer could not be bothered to take those 10 seconds to check such a simple aspect of item creation."

I haven't been paying much attention to the aura strength this round. Mostly looking at construction requirements.

Hmm, i wonder if listing the wrong aura strength is DQ worthy, after all having the wrong aura means your "Submission does not conform to the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game" = DQ...

using the hide of intelligent creatures is not good. Using the hide of a humanoid intelligent creature is very gross.

Dragon scales can be given or harvested harmlessly, so don't worry about this snark dragon crafters. (I am sure I found other reasons not to vote for you ;P )


As if.

Item I have seen a dozen times and downvoted each time:

I wish I could quit you.

RPG Superstar Season 9 Top 32 , Dedicated Voter Season 8, Dedicated Voter Season 9 aka Tothric

Ok, Item. You Fall into the category of "I wish you were sent to me this before submitting, so I could help you fix it." Category.

I DO hope you post your item in the Feed-back Thread. I have some words for your designer. Not bad words, just, words for that person.

Your theme is awesome and traditional; your execution is where you fumbled, hard, down stairs.

However: I can tell you have potential. So please, get posted.

I wonder why you think paizo never allowed an item to do that, but you should

RPG Superstar Season 9 Top 32 , Dedicated Voter Season 6, Marathon Voter Season 9 aka flykiller

These are not the sword powers you're looking for.

Sovereign Court Marathon Voter Season 8, Marathon Voter Season 9

Do you KNOW the level of that spell? Or what level you have to be to CAST that spell? Any you made your CL less than 10?

*flips table*

RPG Superstar Season 9 Top 32 , Dedicated Voter Season 6, Marathon Voter Season 9 aka flykiller

I like this item, but that one pun is too much to bear.

Dedicated Voter Season 9

Just misread "spell" as "smell" while reading through an item and suddenly made the whole thing a lot more mundane.

Sovereign Court Marathon Voter Season 8, Marathon Voter Season 9

"Envelope" vs. "Severe"

That extra "e" messed both of you up. ^.~*

Is it bad that I will upvote an item that does pretty much nothing when pitted against an item that I feel would be harmful to the game if introduced, but actually does things?

RPG Superstar 2013 Top 16 , Marathon Voter Season 6, Marathon Voter Season 7, Marathon Voter Season 8, Dedicated Voter Season 9 aka Darkjoy

I liked your item better at 80 words, the last 25 ruined it.

I took great care reading the other item, it was flawed.

I win!

Weird, I suspect that sometimes voters receive the exact same pairing.

They do.

So it is worse if I pass the saving throw? I think that was a mistake.

Hopefully I won't see this again after the next cull.

Even this item's drawback is useful. I mean sure you will see all your friends die but the Belkar in me says "just loot their corpses" if I survive.

Ok, which of you guys are torturing your players with incorporeal undead? Every other item is some kind of ghost slaying/trapping/banishing doohickey.

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

wow way to combine a classic item and a classic mythos and do neither of them justice...

Edit To be more constructive: The issue is in order to do either o those things justice you needed a lot more then 300 words. points for ambition and it just makes you middling in the grand scheme.

Finally, I see my own item, and before my 1000th vote.

It's paired up against an item I don't think is very good. So I guess that tells me where my item must rank as well.

I win again, survived the 2nd Cull

Star Voter Season 9

Pretty sure I just saw a post referring to my item, and now it's gone. I was going to respond in PM, but I forget who had posted it.

Regardless, yeah. I know. That was a result of the second version and I wish I had stuck with the original.

I must be in a pessimistic mood.

Every few pages in this thread, I see a statement of condemnation that says something like, "This item spits in the face of everything fun about gaming and makes me question the existence of E. Gary Gygax. I will up-vote a poorly-templated grocery list before I ever allow this piece of garbage to tarnish the game forever with its unforgivably bad mechanics and its unsavory intentions towards my loved ones."

Every time I read a statement like that, I immediately assume it's directed at my item. I don't assume that about any of the mild snark in this thread, just the truly vitriolic stuff.

Reading the text next to your name, I doubt it.

I'm the same; I read every single snark to see if there is a hint of my item. Very disheartening, but I can't stop myself. :(
