NOTE: I want to do this, I think it will be fun, and if you notice Im doing anything wrong, PLEASE, PLEASE dont be afraid to tell me. Infact Im sue Ive messed something up already. And yes I know this will be a lot of work but at least I will have fun doing it
Part one: Creature type
Each person who votes will have 3 votes to vote for a creature type, you can only vote for one type once
{table=head]Type|Votes
Aberration|8
Animal|3
Construct|5
Deathless|3
Dragon|2

Fey|12
Giant|1
Humanoid|2
Magical beast|2
Monstrous humanoid|2
Ooze|10
Outsider|4
Plant|5
Undead|7
Vermin|1
[/table]

Vote will be up until 11:59 PM thursday pacific time, or until the crowd demands it, whichever comes first
Subtype 1
Voting none means you dont want the creature to have a subtype, if we have one subtype and I set up Subtype 2, you can vote for it not to have a second subtype, and the process continues. Everybody gets 3 votes for each subtype. A creature will get no more than 3 subtypes

voting for abberation, those are creative and interesting (as a general rule)
voting for giant, (i like using giants in my campaigns, and in my expirience your monsters are first rate)
voting for humanoid (we simply don't have enough of these in core, and i dislike non-core non-homebrew)

also, am i magically attracted to your threads, or are you some form of homebrewing god.

inuyasha

Prepare yourself for so many tiny fey in the air that you cannot get away. little hands thrusting spears into eyes, ears, nose and mouth, as well as jabbing everywhere else. Some tickle or blow raspberries in your ears. some stick bronze pieces up your nose. Chaos. you cannot see while in a swarm, from them poking you in the eyes.

LordErebus12
2013-05-10, 09:44 AM
Sleep (Su):
This song requires two or more fey separated by no more than 100 feet to be singing in unison. Any creature within 100 feet of either singer that hears the song must succeed on a DC (10 + 1/2 fey's Level + Charisma modifier) Will save or be affected as though by a sleep spell. Additional fey within 100 feet of a target can lend their voices to the song, strengthening it and increasing the save DC by 1 per additional singer. A creature that successfully saves cannot be affected again by those fey’s sleep song for 24 hours. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Suddenly, swarms... how many fine creatures in a five foot square? how many are singing the song of sleep?

Why only three sizes? I might be remembering wrong, but isn't the size listed the size of a swarm (and not of the individuals)?

we are making a swarm, and all swarms are fine diminutive or tiny ;)

eftexar
2013-05-13, 06:01 PM
My vote is Fine.

But, I was well aware it was a swarm. I've never dealt with swarms before, so I just had some confusion as to whether or not the size is dependent on the individual creatures or if the size is that of the whole swarm.

inuyasha
2013-05-13, 06:06 PM
oh, its the size of the individual creatures

looks like tiny folks. We're going to do target CR next

EDIT: So far we have a reptillian fire fey swarm

ANOTHER EDIT: target CR is up, and you get 3 votes again

1-3 (we need more interesting low level monsters.)
7-9 (nice, commonly used range)
19-21 (also a range with a lack of good monsters).

19-21, 25-27, 39-41+

I need epic monsters to fight as is. I'd say "anything" higher than 19-21 if I could. I'd say CR 30. Can't fight Big T every encounter once you hit 30, gets old and easy. And the Gods are just a little too tough for daily encounters.

CR target is 19-21 dont worry if we go under or over, but it will be high HD, and voting for HD starts now. Voting lasts until tonight, and then we will do speeds, and after that we will do special abilities

No extra movements. Fire prevents swimming pretty well. I don't want a flier.

Burrowing would be cool though.

It happens. Most of the other voting threads have had a slow couple of days, and it happens to all voting threads occasionally. Additionally, GitP in particular tends to have less interest in high- and epic-level content (see, for example, that during its entire existence, my "vote up an epic spell" has never gotten anywhere near the amount of traffic as the my monster voting thread, or any other threads dedicated to nonepic content). Here, we are looking at a 26HD monster, so the low-power-play lovers are gone. Combine that with the fact that the voting-thread fans seem to have bee on vacation or something for the last two days, and this is what happens.

Okay, that makes sense. I wish people would pay more attention to these things. They're rather fun!
Also, is your vote thingy still going? I hadn't even noticed it to be honest :smallredface:

Yep:smalltongue:
I have two which are still running, both in my sig.

And while we're on a tangent here, I'm thinking the next voting thread someone makes should either be for a base class, a magic item, or a city/town. I was planning on doing either an intelligent-magic item thread (which has the disadvantage of being a high level thing) or a thorp, which could be easily inserted into most campaigns. Thoughts?

Class and magic item or good, though I don't know how somebody would go about a city/town.
Intelligent-magic item being something along the lines of the One Ring or the Crystal Shard? If I'm right on this, it's a great idea. I don't know what a thorp is though :smallredface:
It all sounds pretty cool to me :smallbiggrin: I love homebrew (both using it as a player and a DM!)!

May I suggest voting on a Cursed Item? It need not necessarily be super-high leveled.

Intelligent magic items meant the system for intelligent items in the DMG, or here (http://www.d20srd.org/srd/magicItems/intelligentItems.htm)
The One Ring/Crystal Shard would be an artifact in D&D terms.

A thorp is the smallest sized village listed in the DMG, page 137 (population 20-80).

Nice idea, I think I might have to use it (unless you want to make such a thread, of course:smallamused:).

There haven't been any new votes for awhile...perhaps it is time to end this round?

I don't think that I'm better than you at this. This has been working well so far:smallsmile:

In general, when you have unbounded possibilities, what I would do is either
a)List as many as you can think of, with an "other (please specify)" option, or
b)Break it into two parts: Start by posting a list of your ideas for whatever it is the vote is on, and let other people suggest ideas (basically, the only option is "other (specify)." Then have a second phase where people vote on the options suggested in the previous phase.

Option (b) takes longer, and the thread can slow down during the nomination/ideas phase. On the other hand, it can result in abilities that you wouldn't have thought of. It might make more sense for a high-level monster (like this one), but either option should work.

Another method (which I have not done before, but that I think might be worth a try) is to break the voting phases by some thematic separation of abilities (e.g. vote on "abilities related to perception and senses" or some mechanical distinction (e.g. abilities related to resistances/immunities/passive defenses). I sort of did this with my current thread where I separated "possible alternate forms" from other special attacks/special qualities, but SAs/SQs are so broad that it might be worth further subdividing them......

For really complex stuff, there may be a certain point where you have to make arbitrary decisions. The two longest-running 'vote up a campaign setting' threads from a couple years ago both had really long "open discussion" phases, at which point the thread-starter would consolidate popular ideas into nice-looking lists for votes.

Ultimately, for anything which isn't a simple, discrete decision, there is no "right" way to vote on it, so however you decide to do it will most likely be fine.

EDIT:
Off the top of my head (I'll try to think of more tomorrow), it is a fey, so some SLAs would probably make sense (these could be their own phase)...

Some sort of burning effect (like a fire elemental, anything hit by its swarm damage catches fire and takes burning damage for as long as they remain in the same space as the swarm, plus an extra d4 rounds)...

Hey, would if it got an ability to blind anyone who looked at it with intense heat in their eyes as a gaze attack? Sort of like the nymph's stunning beauty, except now it is too hot for your eyes (the weakest part of the outside of the human body) to withstand.
