As promised, here are the rest of the items that make up the Top 100 entries for the Open Call of RPG Superstar Season 9!
These are in alphabetical order, so there's (intentionally) no way to know who was number 37, and who came in at 100.
Remember that these represent hard work and effort on the part of their authors, and be nice. This is not a place to be snarky or dismiss the accomplishments of either this group, or our top 32, or our alternates, or even our voting process. If you want to discuss the merits of specific items, or trends in item design, or talk about our voting, there are threads for those topics.

Many thanks to everyone who entered, and voted, and who has commented or given feedback during this contest, Without all your participation, we would't have a Supertar contest!

AAAHHHHH!!! Both me and my buddy made top 100!!! Woohoo!!!

*Happy Dance!*

Marathon Voter Season 9

Aw, a couple of my favorites aren't on here.

But it's a relief to see mine, at least. :P

Well, my item's listed first, so I'm going to assume I'm No. 37. :p

I know, I know; it's alphabetical...

Ahh, so I didn't make it through the "6th Cull" -- oh well.

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

Congratulations to the Top 100. I am glad to see many I voted for! :)

Dedicated Voter Season 9

Wow! I'm so excited about this. Congratulations to my fellow Hundred-ites! Hundredions? Hundredores? Whatever, this is pretty cool.

Cool, my Kabuto made it. Someone on the Items Seen chat (that was unaware they were speaking to the creator) pointed out that it was too potent for the price. I should have stuck to Amulet of Mighty Fists pricing, but top 100 is a vast improvement over my entry last season. I think I was out in the first cull last time.

Made the Top 100! And so did an item I helped edit (plus the 4 Top 32 items I helped with on the list). All but 2 of my keeps are on here as well.

It interesting how many items here are also on the first page of the CMI thread.

Good designers always try to get better.

Nyaw, Security Blanket and Plush Guardian of Cuddles didn't make it to the top 100? Okay, I wasn't expecting my blanket to make it with all those errors, but the PGoC I'm a little surprised.
Mostly everything in that list I really like, so well done to everyone who made it in!

Dedicated Voter Season 8, Dedicated Voter Season 9

I haven't submitted my item to the CMI thread yet, but I definitely plan to, especially since I am on this list.

Sovereign Court Marathon Voter Season 8, Dedicated Voter Season 9

I am honored to be in such company.

I don't think that I would have gotten here without the helpful (though brutal) critic of my item last season.

Thanks again to all who have worked with me, and congratulations to all of the others on this list!

Looks like your bloodsucking-vermin-themed-ranged-weapon-with-unusual-mechanics beat my bloodsucking-vermin-themed-ranged-weapon-with-unusual-mechanics.

Good job.

Made it in! Awesome!

Outside of my own item (since I'm biased), there's a lot of good stuff here. This is a very solid top 100.

Next year my Open Call item (spell? archetype? villain?) is going to be aardvark-themed. I'll feel better at the end.

I'm kind of surprised the Webwarden's Vigilant Claw, Security Blanket and Trollhide Shield didn't make it. I thought those were very fun, cool items.

Troll gut grease was my item. I should have mentioned that earlier.

Star Voter Season 8, Dedicated Voter Season 9

Eh, made it into the top100, I'm happy with that. Not bad for a second attempt. Will try to do better next time.

RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16, RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16 , Marathon Voter Season 6, Marathon Voter Season 7, Marathon Voter Season 8, Dedicated Voter Season 9 aka motteditor

Ah, I liked that one, Thomas. Reminded me of the troll fingers from several years back (one of Tom Phillips' items, if I recall correctly). I didn't see it a lot, but think I mostly upvoted it.

Silver Crusade Star Voter Season 8, Star Voter Season 9

Glad to see my item :D

Keeps me motivated to try again next time.


So close, and yet so far.

Liberty's Edge RPG Superstar Season 9 Top 32 , Marathon Voter Season 9 aka Thrawn007

Congrats to all of the top 100. As everyone gets better and better at writing items, getting into that top 100 is quite a feat.

Dark Archive Marathon Voter Season 9

I guess my item was too bland after all xD Ah well, congrats for everyone who made it here, a lot of my favourites made it here so thats nice to see :D

Wow, 9 seasons and I break top 100!

Did not make it :-(

Well, my item survived up till there, so it is still good for me (in a far better than last year way) :-)

I already see several ways it could have been better polished and I begin to have a better assessment of what voters like/dislike.

That said, I wish to congratulate the designers of the following items which, even if they did not make Top100, were on my Keep list.

Abacus of Sensory Balance
Bracelet of Brain Binding 
Charlatan’s Spellbook
Crown of Cocytus
Dust of the Doppelganger
Featherblade
Master Key of the Discerning Ambassador
Security Blanket
Spellguardian's salvation
Staff of Perfect Harmony

I greatly enjoyed your items, even though my opinion was obviously not shared by the majority of voters. Kudos to you. And I fervently hope to see more of your design in the followings seasons (or other venues).

BTW, for those who have not yet done so, you can post on the CMI thread. I will tell you what made me love your item ;-)

And we will tell you how it could have been even better :-)

Next year, I'm making an Aardvark-themed item.

Just in case.

Argh!!!! I've been ninja'd.

I swear i hadn't seen this. I hadn't even been on this page of this thread when I wrote my reply to Jacob.

Really. Yes, I know, the hyphen even. But it was totally independently conceived. Really!

wait, whoops. I thought there was more than one page to this thread. I guess I had been on the same page, but I was scrolling down from the top.

Okay. I'll just find my way to the door.

And on next year, turns out that your aardvak themed items will be somehow topped by item named "A"

I wasn't even top 100. ^_^

Lantern Lodge Dedicated Voter Season 8, Marathon Voter Season 9 aka Jayson MF Kip

I can only assume my item was #101. But probably not.

Well done, people!

Also, next year. Or in four months...whenever Season 10 is.

Shakes fist vengefully

Marathon Voter Season 9

Honored to be here as well, especially as a first attempt. Looking forward to CMI on my armor.

Star Voter Season 9

Making Top 100 feels just like Christmas to me! Knowing that the Greenwarden Gauntlet (should have been Gauntlets, blast my feeble eyes!) made it this far, I am proud of how well it did. Thanks to everyone who threw it an up-vote, and look forward to participating with you next season!

I've posted my item in the Critique My Item thread, really looking forward to your feedback!

Aardvarks seem pretty laid back. I bet there's room for two of us. Our aardvark-themed submissions just need a steady supply of swarm-themed items and they'll be fine.

For what it's worth, I am happy to see Hordebreaker on there.

Full disclosure: it was not mine (I only survived 3 culls) but it was among my favorite items.

I think releasing the list but ordering it alphabetically was a very smart move, Owen.

It seems I correctly predicted 70% of this year's Top 100.

Congrats to my fellow Top 100, and to everyone else who survived all the culls. There were quite a few strong contenders this year.

not even top 100, that's a bit of a let down. Oh well, back to the drawing board.

My item didn't break the Top 100!?

Clearly people just don't know a solid, well-designed item when it hits them in the face! I hate you all! You will all pay! The world will pay! My players will suffer! I've just added 17 more guards to the Prison in Way of the Wicked!

Enjoy your brief respite before I return... next time I won't be alone. I am going to form a coalition of black-hearted item builders. I will find you, lone creators who've individually suffered defeat... and we shall band together into the Sinister S... wait, that might be copy... written(?). We will form the Diabolic Designers!

But rest for now, let the fools celebrate with their infinite cups of booze and their pretty butterflies.

And then there were 2.

Everyone knows Baron "Boomstick" Quibblemuch has been locked up at Mt. Pretty Pony Sanitarium for the Overly-Stressed and Hysterical (a synonym for 'criminally insane.' That place is a fortress and there's no possible way that anyone could ever escape there.

Now I know there's rumors that some peoples' Round 2 practice maps included detailed schematics, blind spots, and staff assignments, but I assure you, there's nothing to this story for you good Paizo forum-neers to worry about. I'm just a lone kook, babbling in the wind.
