I await it and the result of the staff award anxiously.

I'm sure it is Tribble, but I'd like to pat him on the back if anything.

Pffttt, I ranted at Gorbash for the 'having to use screen name' ruling, so I'd say my chances are hovering around nil :P

Mm...personally, I'd like for the entry threads to be unlocked soon, so I can get some feedback.

It'd also be neat to see the voting breakdown, like Gorbash did for the previous contests...see just how narrowly (or widely) Vorpal beat me.

Ummm, Gorbash Kazdar is a bit busy at the moment, what with life outside of school about to hit him square in the face. He should be back soon.

Uhh, he didn't leave a note on the fridge so I'm not sure what you guys are supposed to be doing right now.
Homework done?
Teeth brushed?
I guess you can watch some TV, then. I'll be in here on the phone if you need me.

Hurry, someone do something really bad so that Gorbash will show up to smite you.

And don't worry, we'll remember your sacrifice and honor your memory... for a time.

I pity you fools. I didn't even need to make an entry - all I needed to do was make Gorbash THINK I entered, and won. Total contest sweep... ;D

Okay Tribble, the Blue Wizard will act up.
He throws off his blue robes and sunglasses, and streaks the contestants. "Woo-Hoo!" He casts fly, after retrieving a few spell components, and will streak the rest of Gorbash's 'kids'.

Thats a start, but to really get it going, you gotta mention two out of the following three: President Mush Mouth, Fat Albert, or Sterrance ;)

But not all three in a sentence, less you accidently summon the Giant instead or (worse yet) the dreaded ADMIN!

By the power vested in me by the DM, I charge all Admin in this place to reveal themselves and be banished!

A league of assassins, or a demonic plot to take over a kingdom, or a misguided organisation who are going to accidentally free an ancient lich...So fun...

Join the Navy Navy!

Theme color is Blue

The Lord Cerulean has put out a call for ships! Design your entry into the Navy Navy by describing who sails your ship and why your aquamarine ship should fly the Royal banner of Lord Cerulean. Submit all entries to Admiral Periwinkle.


Note: This would not be limited to seafaring ships...

Uh, What Rhymes With Purple?

Color is purple

It takes a man sure in his manliness (or a woman, though she need not be sure in her manliness) to wear purple. And what man (or woman) could be manlier (well, not really if they're a woman) than a bard? Purple Haze, Purple Rain--the greatest bards don't just wear purple, they also cast spells imbued with the very essence of purple! Design your best set of bardic spells dealing with purpleness, one for each level (0-6).

While I figure out a concept for the unofficial contest I am posting a recruit notice for a game based off my Blue Bath's entry for those of you who found it interesting. PM me, or post on the OOC thread called Blue Wizard recruiting.

Design something depressing!
That's right, fellas! You can design a depressed monster, spell, class, or PrC. Just make sure it is sad and includes the color GRAY/GREY (you can pick ;D )

Nature's Color
Theme color: Red
Rules of contest:
There are, in ordinary, straight up, no frills D&D, a few "nature"-y or "animal-y" classes - Druids, Rangers and, to a lesser extent, Clerics with the Nature domain. However, the emphasis of these classes typically lies either on botany or biology, or just in survival - so rarely is the predator and prey aspect of nature's web emphasized. The goal of this contest to create a series of feats which emphasizes this aspect.

(not sure if I need/should/want to have this in more detail than given by others...)

Rules:
1) There may be no less than three and no more than eight feats in the series. The feats must follow typical rules that are expected of feats (ability score requirements are odd, normal is listed if the feat changes rather than supplies a bonus, et cetera).
2) The series may split into up to three seperate paths. This means that you can have up to three feats which are the end - that is, no other feat in the series requires them. You can certainly have as many -<>- shapes in the line as you can fit.
3) The series of feats must be designed with Ranger, Druids or Cleric (Nature) in mind. While there is no need to require a class's special traits (Wild Shape, Divine Casting, Combat Style, Animal Companion, etc), it should be designed with the particular abilities of the class in mind. There should definitely be no requirements that cannot be acheived by any of the three classes mentioned.
4) The series of feats must (obviously) be thematically linked, and not just by "grah, predator".
5) Formatting should be as a feat is formatted in the System Reference Document.

The God's of Grey

Ninety Five
By: Leber

Morality has always been in constant movement. From the tugging of the angels unto the gates of heaven, to the demonic pulls of demons into the layers of the Abyssm, it has always knocked solidly on the door of the mortals. Morality is movement, it is the enternal crashing sea of life.
And who better to reflect that then the source of life itself?

Create a patheon of deities and their respective planes or places that revolve around the constant fight of good and evil, and in the end; balance in all of its smugged grey glory.

I'm not sure I understand the contest. Are we entering color themed contests? I would pick blue, but is that out now. I could be the Pink Wizard for this game if I need a color not taken. Though OrangeRed, is a favorite of mine. Anyway, I'll put something up after I write some of the many papers I have due, and memorize all my scenes.

Wait! What am I doing here? Oh yeah, having fun!

PINK champion of evil

Theme color Pink

First a few facts:
All colors are basically neutral.
Of all the colors none is as emotionally connected to good, as pink.
Which of cause means that somewhere in the multiverse, exists a pink evil to counterbalance the good.

This competition aims to unmask the pink horror. You are to design an evil creature/encounter with a CR of min. 10 and max. 12. The creature/encounter must be based on a pink theme. This means that all spells, spell-like abilities, supernatural abilities, special qualities, etc. must have a pink theme.
The winner is he who best manages to warp our conception of pink as a color of love.

A few points.
- If someone chooses a color, it doesn't mean that the color is taken for all time, feel free to use it in your entry.

- End of the Week = Sunday 11:59pm as per the timestamp of this website.

- Limit of 2 entries per poster, I will only look at the last two entries for a poster when making my decision.

Good job so far. I hope to see more entires over the weekend.

{color=Rainbow}Spectrum of the World {/color} ;)

http://www.photo.net/learn/darkroom/darkroom-color-2

Create a world based upon the principal that every religion, every race, every class, is based off it's color. More so then the elements of the wizards or the paints of the bards, but the colors that run and dictate our every move and breath.
The three main colors: Blue, Red, and Green.
Three constant colors, from the beginning they have been there and they have rooted deep into the veins of mortals.
The four secondary colors: yellow, cyan (teal), magenta (purple), and white.
In the mix of the main colors came the secondary colors, the mixed creations of the enternal three.

Does red stand for the rage of the barbarian or the burning passion of the casting sorcerer?
Does the gentle cyan create nothing but a balance of the philosophies of green and blue or is it the enemy of red?
Is white really neutral? Or is it something more?

Create a city, a world, a set of classes, a patheon, a monster, or anything that creates the balance and conflict of the color spectrum.

Adding to my Blue Wizard's grand planar manor:

BLUE WIZARD's: Animals, Plants, and other artifacts of Blue

Theme color Blue
What else?

The Blue Wizard seeks much more to decorate his grand blue halls, gardens, and private parks. Great expense has been made to find a rare blue tree, and even a blue-butt Monkey. He seeks more, and only the rarest or most expensive artifact or creature should apply, for his guests have expensive tastes. Even the blue people from Star Trek can be counted as an entry. He would place each of the favored entries upon his grounds, and grant the creator, capturer or conjurerer or even manifestor several free stays and even services of the Blue Baths.

The Green Machine

Create a machine/monster that can be found in the forest. *Show how the mechanical monster coexists with the natural world, and how it helps the environment. *The monster may be of any CR from 1-20, and must have at least one ability/quality/something with the word green in it. The monster must be green.

There lies the body; there lay the shoes.
How did the adventurers get here? How did the body get here? Why do the adventurers want the shoes?

Design a single-session whodunit centered around the red shoes, designed to challenge a level 4 party.
Categories include: Surprise Ending, For an Evil Party, Sentient Shoes, Plug and Play (for ease of use), and Laughing Longest.

Marked by the Indigo
http://www.swva.net/fred1st/indigo.jpg

Create a template which explains the peculiar blue markings on ordinary objects and animals, or a prestige class that affects player races of a certain class. What causes this? Is it beneficial or harmful to the victims? Do its victims turn against the unafflicted? Can it begin to affect your party? Is there a cure?

The winners of each category will have their template renamed to Indigo X, where X is their category:
Chakra (psionic)
Woad (pure melee)
Offering (divine casters)
Insight (arcane casters)
Benefice (beneficial template)
Affliction (detrimental template)

Red versus Blue
Color: Purple
The goal: Create two characters who are archenemies, but their struggle is not one of alignment (neither Chaos vs Law or Good vs Evil). A special bonus category for enemies who are both of the same class.

Hazard Zone

Color = Orange

Orange is the universal color for "caution", and this contest reflects that. Animals with orange markings are usually toxic or very dangerous (or they hope to come off as such). Important highway signs are always orange to warn of problems. Orange just isn't a safe color... it denotes Hazards.


Hazard Zone contestants must create a Gauntlet of traps, hazards, and other obstacles that are disarmed with careful thought and planning... not by judicious use of the "Disable Device" skill. A background for location of the Gauntlet and reason for it's construction are mandatory. Winners are the creator of the Gauntlet most difficult to solve, and the most creative in construction. A Judge's Award for Most Humorous might be appropriate, depending on entries.
