    Vote Up a Monster (3.X) #3: For a Few Votes More

    Vote Up a Monster (3.X) #2
    #2 Monster: the Deus ex Machina

    Vote Up a Monster (4E) #1 by Shadow_Elf

    Well, here we are again. I've been having a lot of fun with making these new monsters that, I had to start the next contest right away. I know I said I start this over the weekend, but you know me. I just can't wait to do another one of these.

    The categories have changed slightly. I've broken up Type & Subtype, so you can vote for them separately now. Also, I've eliminated the Environment listing, as it is largely unnecessary; however it may become a "bonus" vote if it again becomes relevant.

    I am, again, soliciting votes on a number of aspects on this next creature. Here are the aspects, in order:

    1. Type: Ooze

    I was hoping for Shapeshifter-Swarm, myself. But that's for later.

    I don't like swarms; they're complicated and annoying, not to mention kinda lame anyway.

    I think I'm gonna have to go with a dragon. Athough a half dragon-half ooze would be cool (if not pretty screwed up.)

    I voted for dragons because I think Zeta will end up making a unique dragon instead of the endless re-treads we've seen - that's also why I'm gonna vote for shapeshifter.

    Another vote for Ooze.
    I would really like to see a game made by Obryn, Kurald Galain, and Knaight from these forums.

    I'm not joking one bit. I would buy the hell out of that.

    Alright, the votes are completely tallied, & the winner is:
    Ooze!

    So, the creature is going to be an Ooze. This already sounds like it's going to be an interesting one. So next, I need you guys (& girls) to vote on the creature's Subtype. Votes will be tallied regularly. If you later decide to change your vote, please let me know that you are doing so, & what your original vote was. As always, please only vote for 1 subtype, thank you.

    Zeta, I'm thinking this new Subtype thing is flawed. This would require us to choose an element/energy trait or an alignment or descriptor.

    That said, if I can only, pick one, I'll give Air some love.

    Yes! Finally, we got an ooze!

    For subtype; alignment ones get old after a while, anyone can slap them on anything. So I say we go with elemental: AIR.
