    I would agree with that, I just wanted to know exactly how things are going to be proceeding. After all, if we wait for Yklikt to finish we may be waiting a long time indeed.

    Agreed. We were told a conclusion would have happened by now. Given, I understand things come up, but I've dropped out for just such a reason before. We either need him to finish, or we need to move on.

    Thumbs up Re: Villainous Competition XX​I: Yarr!

    I'm setting a deadline for final judging and disputes of 23:59 GMT Thur 20th July.

    Hopefully that should be enough time for everything to be finalized.

    If not, only judging completed by that time will be taken into account (i.e. if any judge has only scored some of the competitors, their judging will not be counted).

    Also a reminder: now is a good time to give honorable mention votes, which can be done by PM or posted in the thread. Competitors can vote for other entries, just not their own. I'll leave it up to judges if they want to give HMs or not.

    HM goes to Cilawar. I had a similar idea of a Vampire turning to ship-stealing for him and his vampire brood to freely traverse waters, then upgrading to Vampire Lord Master of the Unseen Hand to control the weather and evwrything/one within weight limit.

    Using ships for a Dungeon Lord is a particularly clever and novel approach for me, too.

    Congrats to all, especially the place-getters! 4-way tie for HM (Sea Dirge got an HM by PM)!

    On that note, I'd like to announce that I'm standing down (possibly temporarily) as chair for the Villainous Competition.

    Main reason being as much as I'm happy to chair, I also want to compete, dammit!

    The various trolls (and I'm still not convinced there is more than one) may consider this a "victory" of some sort. All I can say is Novolin (aka Prasit), Ywvbevlin, Yklikt and the other accounts I have an eye on: if ruining people's enjoyment and trying to sabotage a "just for fun" internet competition is how you get your kicks, I actually pity you.

    Inevitability will be taking the position, at the very least for the next comp. I wish him much luck, and I'm genuinely stoked to be able to compete again!

    Congratulations to all the medalists on winning and to Thurbane on being back as a competitor!

    You certainly deserve the break after being our longest-serving chairman. Change is exciting.

    However, I just need to point one thing out.

    Double honourable mention aww yiss. Also my power to score really low while getting HM is legendary.

    Woo! Thanks for the judging! I knew this was going to be a low-scoring round for me. But making something actually semi-playable that has 4 levels of Samurai and Monk was totally worth it.

    I didn't see Yklikt trolling, not sure where that accusation comes from?

    In my heart, I won this, because if my score hadn't been changed after a PM that broke the rules, my score would be highest.

    Some people interpreted an earlier incident with Yklikt about some rules as trolling. It looked more like he was just being stupid to me, but given recent history, it's understandable why they'd think that.

    Congratulations on the Honorable Mention and the 'win'.

    Wll, sadly Iw as away from the INet for almost 2 days (curse not being able to get in at work), my HM would have gone to the Book Thief as well, sadly it wont count.

    I am honestly saddened that only my judging got completed, I always like it if there is a tourough exchange of different opinions in competitions such as this.


    As for Thurbane leaving the Chair: Sad but foreseeable, seeing how many trolls trolled him and the Competition. let me say that I valued your cairing tremendously, and am sad to see you go...although the replacement was of course Inevetible.^^

    Lets hope you have more fun with actually competing. :D


    As for the last dispute regardin Cilawar: sorry, I would have answered if I had been on. Sadly I wasnt. In case you were wondering: The new points raised were , unless they ere clarifications or the as I admitted underrated Dungeon lord part, not considered.
    I understand that that can be frustrating (happened to me as well in my only finished comp^^), but if one starts to judge later Info/new stuff not in the original Entry, there will never be an end to it.
    I do hope you can accept that. :)


    Edit: as for Sea Dirge: I did not read any judgings or disputes and did not receive any PM prior to my first judging (but afterwards, and I would also ask people not to do this!). Sadly for you I once wanted to build something similar and gave it up do to having to jump through too many loops to get it intelligent, so ...yeah. My Rules Knowledge is not the largest here, but unluckily for you you got a "mistake" in that I made myself once. Sucks.

    GrayDeath, you did actually miss some stuff, and you're still not getting it, but let's just agree to disagree on that one. The competition is over for this round.

    I am also against introducing new material in disputes, but I really don't think that's what I did.

    I'll just judge the next round you compete in and penalise you unreasonably in revenge.

    Yeah no worries I wasn't talking about you at all. Ykiklit originally had me at a 19 til someone PMed him that there was no way for my monster to have an intelligence, which was wrong. So the person broke the rules to PM him AND was wrong, however he still ended up lowering my score cause reasons.

    It may be more about them having a remarkably similar posting style to Novolin/Ywvbevlin, leading to the suspicion that they are part of a sock-puppet hydra (as it would seem many of the previous trolls may be).

    That said, thank you Yklikt on attempting to judge. I think what judging you did finish was decent and well-explained. I hope to see you finish a judging in the future. I can totally understand Real Life taking its toll.

    Edit - Congrats to Aka-chan, Korahir, and all the HM winners this round. There were some awesome entries this go around. Hackulator, I really liked the Sea Dirge (it got my HM vote), and will likely work up a pre-epic version (using either animate + permanency + awaken, or just Haunt Shift) to use in a future campaign.

    Before I discovered the Life Seed, I was trying to do some serious RAW backflips in order to create that monster. Remember, nothing in your campaign has to be epic for the Sea Dirge to exist, the person who created it can have been dead for a thousand years.

    However, if you want to try to make it work without epic spells, this is how:

    The original Sea Dirge concept was a ship with it's hull shaped to look like a human man on some sort of torture device, for reasons that will become clear. The figurehead was the wailing head of the tortured man.

    Take that ship and cast polymorph any object on it to polymorph it into an animated version of itself. Depending on rulings this gives you a permanently animated ship because your duration factor gets above 9. There may be other ways to do this, but I found the Life Seed and stopped looking.

    Cast Awaken Construct on the ship. Because the ship is shaped like a tortured man, it is arguably a "Humanoid-Shaped" Construct it can be a target for that spell. Alternately, simply use the pathfinder version of the spell which does not have that restriction.

    There might be better/more elegant ways to do it without epic magic, but for a DM creating a monster, the Epic Magic is the way to go.

    Yeah, I'm just not engaging any of the trolls/suspected trolls any more, and I have them on my ignore list.

    FWIW, aside from what happened publicly in the thread, I received multiple PM complaints about the behavior (past and present) of Yklikt.

    Are we still going with whatever you decided for next round, Thurbane, or is that up to Inevitability now?

    I mean, I would normally assume it was up to the new Chariman, but since you said you had the theme locked in...
