    If it is, I didn't follow. I very carefully reread everything, and apart from some "general" statements that can be abused, but are obviously intended to fit with specific later statements, I can't find anything really sneaky.

    The third submission is in. This is shaping up to be some stiff competition.

    It is, indeed. Well, some may argue it is most of a joke, which is real, but I had my idea carefully reading the PrC text. This happened last time too: reading and knowing the secret ingredient is the key to start to guess how use it in a exotic, useful way.
    The hint I intended to give would have been more specific and I'll reveal at the end of the contest (promise), so I wouldn't risk to reveal myself

    I hear you there. Really want to compare builds.

    MoM is a pretty crappy PrC though I have to say. Only its flavor makes it interesting. I see a lot of potential for high scores on originality, but little on power.

    I have power, but my use of secret ingredient is going to suffer like hell. That tends to be the case when I build.

    I strongly suspect there are going to be elegance dockings as well. Oh well.

    Still working. I need to finish picking out a few things and integrating them into my level 20 build, then do a quick check. And finalize skill distributions. I also suspect some of my skills might be off slightly (1-2 points) because of initial illegal point-buy, and a LOT of synergy bonuses.

    Maybe it was a mistake having several of the most consistent contestents (try saying that 5 times fast) judge the same competition.

    Eh, we still only managed 4 judges volunteering, so maybe it's for the best. 3 submissions isn't bad, there's still 2-3 days to go :)

    If you remember, even with warchanter there were only 2/3 contestants until the very last day. After the closing it turned out that it has a real flood of contestants

    They have. I just got 2 more submissions today. None of them seem to overlap at all. All very distinct usages.

    Actually, I was waiting for Person_Man to get back to me on judging. The fifth seat belongs to Hand_of_Vecna if he still wants it.

    That it has. 6 submissions are in with 2 more days to go.

    Edit: I'm also going to start taking suggestions for the next Secret Ingredient. I should probably start thinking of something.
