Well, I really liked the idea behind the Forgotten Reflection, but it wasn't finished, so...

I vote for the Chiralite. I liked the back-story and although I've always thought bouncing attacks, while cool, brings angles and, subsequently, trigonometry into the game (if you want it to be truly realistic), I still liked the idea.

I love the Dark Reflection. Count me for it.

I vote for my own monster once more, but I did like the Mirror Dragon and the Chiralites.

I voted for Dark Reflection but I also really liked the Girl In the Mirror (despite some issues) and the Chiralites.

I'm casting my vote for the Chiralite. No real reason other than personal preference.

Chiralite (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showpost.php?p=9099844&postcount=4): Interesting mechanics, pondering.
Dark Reflection (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showpost.php?p=9185011&postcount=9): Would help if you explained their methods a little bit more... if they are driven solely by revenge, then I wouldn't expect them to stay in one place long unless they were somehow plotting... or if they had killed all their specific targets and were waiting for news of people using the devices that they despise. I also like the FOCUSED evil they have to them...
Girl In the Mirror (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showpost.php?p=9095563&postcount=3): Your description is poorly phrased, since it assumes actions on the part of the PC(s). "Weapon" should probably be "Bludgeoning" or perhaps "Bludgeoning, Piercing, and Slashing" (like a bite attack). A very interesting concept... the balloon makes it a bit of an anachronism for D&D, but it would do very well in more high magitech settings or if converted to d20 modern. You probably need to specify the special mirror as indestructible... or would breaking it just make it impossible to appease them?
Mirror Dragon (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showpost.php?p=9182285&postcount=8): Lacked the depth of fluff I like to see in a True Dragon.
Reflector of the Infinite (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showpost.php?p=9112687&postcount=5) : Stat-block didn't match the text, and the fact it could be cheesed for Int boosts limited only by time available leads me to think this wasn't really complete... something I think the author should remedy then post in its own thread.

On balance I think I will go with the most interesting concept, rather than the most perfect execution.

Amazing how many more votes we get when we have the tally up there :smallwink:

2010-08-28, 03:16 PM
Yeah, I really like the poll bringing the community in more than they've been in this in the past.

Though with the non-poll system, every vote usually had some explanation with it, which was really nice because it let us know what was really cool or not so great about our monsters.

Well, they still can, though I guess this is an excuse to be lazy.

So everyone please let us know what caused your vote. You don't want to be thought of as lazy do ya?

But I am lazy :smallannoyed:

I voted for Dark Reflector beacuse the fluff is interesting and can be used a lot in games I tend to play.

2010-08-31, 02:06 AM
I'm going with Dark Reflection
