    Usually the first post in this thread has that information, but we're in the middle of handing over administration of the contest from Temotei to Jormengand, with a brief flirtation with the idea of me doing it.

    I'll be very interested to see what you come up with once you have a chance to flesh out the Professional a bit more.

    As for the Rescuer, I'm thinking of making a few changes to the level 6 Medical training ability. I'm thinking of changing the effect to regular healing instead of providing temporary hp, but dropping the DC to 20, allowing a give character to benefit from the healing 1/hour instead of 1/day and allowing for increased amounts of healing for every 10 points by which the DC is beaten (so 3x the class level at DC 30, 4x at 40 and so on).
    If brute force isn't working, that just means you're not using enough of it.

    When in doubt, set something on fire. If not in doubt, set something on fire anyway.

    Eh, we did fairy tales and mythology a while ago (that was actually the first contest I participated in). My vote goes to Underground

    Actually, I think I have the beginnings of an idea for that, so I'll switch my vote to Language as well.

    you know what I put my hat to for language as next topic as i like to see you crack pot homebrewers brew someting besides granting more languages known or better usage on the ones you know.

    We have four votes for language, easily beating out any of the other suggestions. Therefore, thread.

    While yes those things are common tropes they are not what makes up any where near all anime.

    My idea could equally be described as Anime Tropes, specifically I was thinking of making a trapped in video game character.

    Oh, that's easy. The character is made of video game language and gradually becomes more and more a part of the data. They are language--just 0s and 1s instead of written characters and such.

    Well I've got the Lexitheurge more or less completed. I'm debating doing something more with the Cultural Studies class feature, but honestly I'm just a little worried that might be a bit much with everything else the class gets.

    Finished the Guide, except I'm drawing a blank for thematic abilities the Gnoll language should grant.

    Just glancing it over, my main concern regarding the Guide would be that it has a large number of dead levels and no capstone.

    Honestly? Concept starvation. There are hundreds of official classes, tens of thousands of homebrew classes, and over a hundred of them are by me. There were only a limited number of concepts that I wanted to be implemented that hadn't been already, and so I just come up with silly things instead a lot of the time.

    [/tenhundred]
    What I mean to say is that there are many classes which the real game people have made, and many many classes which other people have made, and over a hundred which I have made, and since there are not so many missing ideas for classes that I can make, I have run out of ones which I can think of to make, so I make funny classes instead of normal classes.

    Quick question, is there going to be an extension on the contest? I only ask because it looks like there are only three complete classes at this point with three others missing all or most of their class features.
