    If I can't find a way to fix the [REDACTED], I definitely will. It's a fun thing, actually, but I'm having issues with a tiny thing.

    My problem is twofold this round: first, I am as always so close to finding builds that work beautifully, only to be short by 1 CR or be missing one technical detail that throws the whole thing off.

    But the second option - and this is unique to this round - is that I am currently undergoing crippling option paralysis as to which theme to submit for. I have like 5 build stubs of varying completion at the moment, and I'm at war with myself over which ones I want to work on and eventually submit. There are just so many fun themes to choose from!

    If you hadn't already gotten to the multiple-build-stub stage, I'd have suggested starting with whichever thread title sounded most interesting.

    Default Re: Villainous Competition XXXIII: The Do Over

    Just wondering, based on the wording of this round's limitations, does that mean that previous rounds that had only one limitation apart from alignment restrictions, or even no limitations, as particularly a number of the early rounds had, are off-limits?

    Or could we simply choose, in those cases, to use that theme without any limitation removal?

    On a more serious note, I finally know what I’m doing now! Of course, I am now leaving town (and my books) behind for 3 days, so I’ll be sitting on my concept until then. It gives me all the more time to hone my craft...

    unfortunately yes, you MUST remove 1 limitation other than alignment.

    Huh. Didn't know that. That's... Potentially very limiting, considering a lot of the competitions only have theme restrictions.

    well,

    there had to be some change, and in rounds that only had a theme, if you remove the theme, then you have nothing to build around. this really only cuts a few rounds out overall. and if a theme is all you're building off of instead of the limitations, then you can do that w/ any round, and then there's no need for limitations at all.

    Yeah, but you could allow people to build without dropping any limitations instead.

    true, but so often after the initial reveal it goes something like " I just couldn't make it work because of this 1 thing".

    oh well.

    I am still continually frustrated, in the best possible way. I have a build that I really, really enjoy though, so I'm doing my best to put it together. I personally don't think I will need a deadline (it's June 22nd, right?)

    I'm busy till Friday, but afterwards it's a long one-week holiday, so I plan on finishing mine then.

    Still waiting for a response from my latest PM, though.

    Not very much progress at this stage, hoping to get somewhere in the next few days...

    Saying that someone reading RAW differently than you is "home brewing or house ruling, but that's fine" doesn't make you right, it just makes you seem pompous.

    If all of us planning to join submit a build each, wouldn't that come close to a dozen? Been a lot of people this time 'round.

    Oh. Oh. I think I finally have a build that works within a theme, removes a limitation in good faith, and that I can write memorably.

    This is going to be fun.

    Starting the write-up now. Already have the whole thing pretty much set in stone and now RL got out of the way. I think I'll have this done by Sunday or so.

    EDIT: All done, all sent. Hope it's decent :)

    Also I'll change all my [REDACTED]s back to their real meaning after judging, cause too much free time in july.

    Build is in! I’m not 100% happy with my writing, but I was unexpectedly rushed with the deadline looming so I figured I might as well hit send on my current draft.

    Was swamped with work and being sick for a while. Might still get it in though, depending on me being able to decide which one to finish and being able to do so without typos ^^

    Maybe I can do one more. It's a holiday for me till wednesday, after all...

    Edit: Well, I did it. That was, what, seven hours on a build? Pretty fast I guess.
