Sorry, Item 1. I'll vote for you if I see you again.

Hey, no fair!

I've seen a couple of relatively cheap items that are really good. I think I'm actually more impressed when someone comes up with something interesting that can be appropriately priced at less than 1k.

My keep list is almost to 5.

People seem to be tempted to submit high power high cost items, hoping the power=coolness factor will score them some points. It's really a lot more impressive on a design level when designers achieve an awesome effect that a part can use cost effectively.

If I can't afford the item until 15th level, I probably won't vote on it, even if it does a huge amount of base damage before multiplying other bonuses like strength.

That said, this other item is really cheap but super neat, even if the use is kinda niche. I think it's author is the author of Springheart from last year.

When in doubt, I almost always go with the cheaper item.

I have 28 in my "Hmm, I will save that for later" folder and of those 7 that I think are top 32 possible.

I have no strong feeling that my 4 keepers will actually be in the Top 32.

I've been desperately looking for a sun item to praise.

Sun for the Sun God

To activate this +1 holy symbol of the Egyptian Sun god, requires chanting a specific command phrase. When activated, all good-aligned characters are bathed in positive energy and healed fully. This healing lasts 2d4 rounds or until the command phrase is no longer being chanted.

He is the Sun god! He is the fun god! Ra! Ra! Ra!

It is entirely possible. I can't confirm or deny anything though.

Rod of Ra
Aura Overwhelming All; CL 21rst
Slot Held; Price 1,000,000,000 gp; Weight 1 lbs.
Description
Forged of the darkest deepest blackest shadow the only substance that can contain the fulminating furious burning power of the great and mighty Ra, by his evil head priests Sis, Boom, and Ba, this rod glows with brilliant light from the many cracks that on closer inspection reveal themselves to be intricate carvings in the shape of a powerful sun glaring down on subjugated and cowering humans.

Hot almost burning to the touch the rod of Ra directs the heavenly might of the great and powerful god of the days against any non-believers. When presented in an elaborate ceremony featuring death defying feats of acrobatics and aeronautics, along with skimpily dressed woman of all ages, the rod becomes even more empowered and mighty. If after the ceremony is complete all agree that the participants are the greatest in the land and honor Ra and his priests well the rod finally finishes charging and allows for the use of its might.

A fully charged rod of Ra may cast light upon itself once per day, but the price of this power is that the user must roll on the table below.

1: Rod explodes, destroying the wielder and a 1 mile area.
2: Rod burns too brightly, blinding all who can perceive it permanently.
3: Rod becomes unstable and the shadow stuff it is made of consumes the user body and soul, he may not be resurrected by any means.
4: Rod acts as a channel for Ra, and the user's soul is destroyed with the evil god taking over his body.
5: Rod fails to function.
6: Rod functions normally.
Construction
Requirements Craft Rod, heightened Sunlight, creator must worship Ra; Cost 999,999,999 gp

I finally found the item that closely mimics my entry; and it's actually pretty good. Perhaps I'm just biased? Anyway, it got my vote. Now if I could just come across my submission.

On a side note, I'm always shocked when two items are so incredibly close to one another, yet the authors have never even spoken before. What are the odds, especially considering it has happened to me three years now?!?

I'm not sure why, but this reminded me of "I threw it on the ground".

Welcome to the real world, Item 1.

Every time I see "I NEED AN ADULT", I imagine it being sung in that song.

Your avatar made this statement even creepier!

I mentioned this in the snark thread, but I saw one item earlier tonight that was a dead ringer for my own submitted item. Same basic idea.

I can't help but feel if we just put our ideas together, we'd have a top 32 item for sure.

In any event, the way they presented their take definitely made me see some ways I could have improved my own.

I found myself in almost exactly this position with an item.

Could be worse. Last year there was an item with the same *name* as mine.

In the 2013 season, my item was one of several plant related footwear items with similar abilities. There was one I never did see in the voting that some voters liked better. They were all pretty good and we all got a lot of votes, but I made the top 32 because mine was slightly better than the others. If yours is the better of the two it will help, but now that there are not judges picking the top 32 from the top 100 or so, you have to get lucky that a similar item to yours is not number 31 and yours is 33 on the last day of voting.

Favorite items thus far:

-A body slot that twists a spell in a can in a VERY interesting way.
-An armor that make me wish my cavalier was still around.
-A detection item which I did not expect to like
-A weirdo weapon with tons of flavor
-Another armor which riff off another item but in a good way
-A butterfly themed item
-A goblin's dream item

just vague enough hehehe

Butterfly themed item also one of my favorite ones, just commented my wife "that's what I call Superstar" ;)

There are multiple butterfly items. I do quite like one of them, though. :)

OMG stop the presses there's an actual sword I REALLY REALLY like!

Well played secret designer, you played with that concept in a very different way.

Scarab Sages

Excellent flavor with topical Golarion references. Almost overdone, but not quite. Item is useful too! Well done.

Yeah, that is when I think, I'm voting for the designer not the item. But I haven't had to cross that bridge yet. :)

Just read the title & thought, "what? how could that be." Just read the item & thought "that's how! It is the right title for this item!" Well done!


Oh, good. That item survived the first cull. I'm glad. It's got a certain mojo I really like.

The visuals and function of this unique weapon just make me smile. Top marks for originality while still staying within the canon of Golarion! :)

I've seen two with some design similarities to my own submission, but none that actually do the same thing. Hoping that stays true.

I would build a chatacter around this item.

Scarab Sages

What the what? *reads description* I think your execution might not be perfect, but admire your moxie nonetheless. That is an inspired combination of disparate elements.

Star Voter Season 9

I saw an awesome piece of armor that I would have voted for over my own item. I haven't seen it on the post cull list. :(

Here's hoping though...

I can't wait till we can speak about entries and I can openly praise the designer, whether they make it to the top 32 or not.

I had two good item up against each other, and had to sit there for a few minutes weighing all aspects before I reluctantly had to vote. It's too early for that kind of pressure!

Shield designers, you are cool people. Other than a couple of pre-cull shields, they've all been easy favourites. I would be disappointed if most of you didn't make the top 32, even if that does make the top 32 shield heavy.

You are a joke item. You have slightly bad formatting. I love you. Keep it is ;-)
