    Ok. All done. The only minor issue that I'm thinking of having it lose a caster level on the arcane side at first level and maybe again at 10th. That would help emphasize the steampunk side of things more rather than the magical aspects. But I'm not sure what this would do balance-wise. Thoughts are appreciated.

    I took this opportunity to make a small change I'd been waffling on, imposing a limit on the level of etheric principle you can etherjam equal to your class level -1.

    Augh. Still can't decide if the Gearlord should lose any arcane class levels. Any quick final input before the deadline?

    Don't do it! Theurgic classes are already at a disadvantage, you don't need to punish them even more for it.

    Think of it this way: would anyone advocate having a mystic theurge losing even more caster levels, even if they got some sweet class features?

    Voting thread is up! Hit it up folks!

    @Owrtho, you didn't finish all of your fluff, but you did complete a good portion of it, so I'm letting it into the voting because of it. When people don't do any of the fluffing, I sideline 'em but you put forth the effort.

    Gah, forgot I hadn't gotten those last few sections filled out. Well, they would have been the more difficult ones, given I'm terrible at coming up with notables, and NPC reactions can be heavily reliant on how using necroclock devices is perceived in the setting (if it's generally considered a horrible thing to do, or if it's completely normal and no one would give a second glance to it).

    Ok. So what is the next contest theme going to be? I hope we'll get more people for the next one. I think that steampunk is tough to do in the standard 3.5 setting which may have contributed to the small number of entries.

    I know part of the reason I didn't get to it was that other stuff happened. I'm going to do the Ghost in the Machine later though, and anyone who expressed interest in it is welcome to help.

    I will try to post the next contest tonight. The theme will be something abstract that you could do a lot with in a variety of ways.

    I kinda want a more simple theme. Something along the lines of "Commander" or something else role oriented.

    Well, I figure I'll ask this even though I don't plan on doing so, but is light specifically referencing to illumination, or could it also be used as 'not heavy'? That said, I may just need to try making an entry based on one of my older works. One for which the title "Into the light" is particularly appropriate.

    Light as closer to Illumination as opposed to Light as in Not Heavy.

    So... mine manipulates light by eating it and having his shadow mutate into stuff like an Ozodrin.

    That still falls within the purview of this competition, right?

    Hello! This is the first time I submit for this, and I have a question for you.

    What should I write at Advancement? It's kinda vague right now.

    Also making sure my class is in line with the competition guidelines, cause it's not 100% light related.

    Im going to use stuff from : Base Class Challenge - The Light Beckons if this is allowed.

    I still not sure of what I have in mind but it will involved the Lightbringer and/or The Twillight Caster.

    Perhaps if they have a source of illumination to devour initially? Or perhaps reverse it and they absorb shadows and darkness to cause themselves to radiate light that they can shape like an Ozodrin (I love that class btw).

    You should write what sort of character role and abilities you'd have playing an Energist. Additionally, if there are spells and feats that would be of benefit to the class (either printed or created by you for this contest) mention them here as well. As far as guidelines, I'd just fluff a few abilities up a little more descriptively (as like you generate radiant light or something) or that they work better in brighter light and don't necessarily work as well in the dark perhaps? Overall I'm good with it as it is, so don't take it as gospel.

    Oh nonono. I meant moreso applications of light that people might not normally expect, or applications of light that would be unfeasible in the real world. I never intend to go too silly for contest entries, but something more like... like the binder binding the souls of inspiring people from the past rather than vestiges, turning him into a bard or marshal of sorts. Suddenly, the grim and dark witchhunted man becomes a jokester who emboldens his allies!

    In this case, I am thinking of doing something with the play on words of light that Owrtho came with earlier, while still using actual light. Of course, that will be only for one particular class feature.

    Does it have something to do with using the principles that would be employed in solar sails to lift the object?

    It's just that a couple of the fields to fill up seem a bit redundant.

    No, but in combination with solar sails you could easily turn a ship into a flying ship.

    Well, the reason WHY solar sails work is that there's no friction in space. A regular ship is not...airtight, y'know?

    Hmmm, are there rules for specific crushing damage or anything like that for being very deep underwater, being slowly crushed by rocks, etcetera?
