Or just look at the whole thread (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?p=8933137).

Remember! We have two categories of voting for common voters, and one just for the entrants: Playground Favorite, Best Connection, and Wish I'd Thought of That! So remember to list your vote for both categories! Entrants are allowed to vote for themselves, but that's usually poor form, and you're encouraged not to unless you truly believe yours is far and away superior.

Playground Favorite: This is the basic one. Any member of the playground who wishes to will vote for whichever entry they like the best. Whoever gets the most votes wins.

Best Connection: For this category, voters are to vote for whichever entries fit together the best. Maybe it's three sets of membership-based
substitution levels that have abilities that work well together, maybe it's two for the same class that can each take it completely different directions. Whichever set seems the most like a planned set, rather than a random compilation!

Wish I'd Thought of That!: Only the entrants are allowed to vote in this category. Entrants will PM me their vote for whichever entry they wish they had made themselves. Maybe you really liked the fluff behind and wish you'd thought it up; maybe you think the fluff is dumb, but one of the mechanics really caught your fancy and you wish you could've used it in your own creation. Whatever! Pick the one you most wish you'd thought of!

Voting will be open through July 29th, EST.

My vote are:

Playground Favorite: Desert Substitution level, extremely well done give more option and allow the class to be played in completly different way.

Best Connection: The Disciples of the Sanguine Way because of the double connection the orientale one and the blood one.

2010-07-16, 12:31 PM
Top pick would be the Desert Martial Adepts, certainly.

I agree with zagan regarding the Disciples of the Sanguine Way; they work together really nicely.

Playground Favorite:Disciples of the Sanguine Way. Just too cool to pass over, and they seem mechanically solid as well.

Best Connection:Shifter Substitution levels by Zagan.

Hey, DW, you're supposed to PM the "wish I'd thought of that" votes.

Entrants will PM me their vote for whichever entry they wish they had made themselves.

2010-07-16, 02:45 PM
...oops. I'll remove that, I guess.

2010-07-16, 04:48 PM
Playground Favorite: Cabal Warlock substitution levels. Very awesome mechanics, and I've a thing for warlocks.

Best Connection: Disciples of the Sanguine Way. Fits together thematically very well, and the fluff was very well written.

Playground Favorite: This one's a little tough, but I love the concept behind the Children sub levels, even though only two out of the planned four were finished before the contest ended.

Best Connection: Got to with the Desert Substitution levels here.

Playground Favourite: Shifter substitution levels

Best Connection: Cabal Warlock

Whoops, left out the closing date. Fixed! Also, participants, let's get those Wish I'd Thought of That votes in; tomorrow or the next day I'll be sending out PMs to anyone who hasn't already sent me their vote.

Playgrounder Favourite: Druid levels, particulaly the warforged. (Transformers FTW!)

Best Connection: Desert Martial Adept levels.

Playgrounder Favourite: Tibbit Substitutions. It may be a joke entry, although it was very creative compared to the other entries.

Best Connection: Desert Adept, of course.

Playgrounder Favourite: Cabal Warlock. Falvourful and interesting, providing a completely different Warlock experience but maintaining balance. I'm quite impressed.

Best Connection: The Disciples of the Sanguine Way. Simple but effective additions to some classes that needed some love. Thematic, interesting and makes me want to play some classes that I would otherwise never look twice at. Tis a rare thing you have done.

Honorable mention goes to the Desert classes. Especially the Desert Swordsage. Taking a potentially broken paragraph from the adaptation section of a class and making something that seems like it should have been included in the book is no small feat.

These are the sorts of things that keep me coming back to the Homebrew boards.

Playground Favorite: Desert substitution levels (esp. like the ranged combat warblade.)

Best connection:The Disciples of the Sanguine Way

Bump! Five more days!

Aaaand it's over! We really saw a lot of fantastic content, but each of the three winning entries clearly deserved their victories.
