    Giant

    I can't think of any villains who are giants - at least off the top of my head. I think it would be interesting to see what would come from it.

    We just had one of these in the last contest. 'Course, it ended up being an Ogre Mage, but still.

    Also, you guys seem to do well with strange selections, so let's try for a Vermin this time. Insects just seem to be naturally inclined toward villainy, when they aren't entirely mindless.

    Vermin don't lend themselves well to villainy. Let's see if Afro can do his magic with them.

    To be honest, I was expecting this to be put on hold until VUACS was over. I certainly hope running too many things at once won't negatively affect the quality of any of the finished products...

    I doubt it. I doubt that Afro will make this villain until VUACS is complete... could be wrong though...

    Anyways. I vote: Outsider! Specifically, Deity... Oh, yes.

    Ah, I can vote! What a refreshing experience. I vote...

    Vermin!

    (I just remembered something. In case anyone's wondering, the result of VUAM4e2 probably will not be made anytime soon, unless there's a break in the stream of VUACS homebrews. Sorry for any disappointments, but I only do this to ensure the best possible product is produced by both vote ups)

    Someone said a bad thing. Find that person and beat them with reeds.

    Those of you who followed Zeta's ooze thread know what this thing is.

    On a side note, cool, even Krimm's voting!

    Are you kidding? This is slow for me. I've got several more pet projects on the go off-forum. I prefer these because I can work with deadlines.

    If only it was originally from this thread, I would use it. You know what I refer to.

    And no, I will in fact make this villain on schedule.

    Inevitables do not have legitimate motivation - they're I, Robot with MOAR NAZI, not intelligent beings with free will, and I refuse to acknowledge them as such.

    That is a good point. Still, can't fault me for looking out for your mental well-being. At least, not unless you really feel like being an arse for no reason.

    For the record, I voted vermin and I have no interest in having it be a swarm if my preferred option gets through. Nothing wrong with the possibility of it having a hive on its side somewhere, but following it everywhere? Nah. I also think Hunger as a motivation would a little too obvious, but we ain't gonna know till we gets dere.

    Edit: Holy crap, ninja'd with another Orkz reference.
