1st: Nicrosil's Barbarian Path of the Spellbound - Fun, interesting, balanced. Well done.

2nd: SleeplessWriter's Druid: The Circle of Eyes - Thematic, simple, fun.

3rd: Fnissalot's Monk Way of the Elemental Bands - Innovative and interesting. A little complex.

1. Path of the Bloodied; straight forward and super cool! I like it a lot!
2. Path of the Spellbound; this looks much better than the wild magic barbarian in the unearthed arcana.
3. Circle of Eyes; I was initially afraid that this would just be a reskin of the divination school or the lucky feat, but I am happy to see that is not the case.

1. Keep it simple!
2. Subsystems online

1. theVoidWatches' College of Plautus (It's "OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH!" as a subclass.)
2. Nicrosil's Path of the Spellbound (Just the right balance of usable, complex, and creative!)
3 RickAsWritten's Irradiated Fighter (The more I think about it, the cooler it sounds.)

1. Scaling Strangely
2. Subsystems Online

Contest Votes

1. Irradiated Fighter: It provides a fairly solid base and some cool options without getting too complex. All around a good place for a fighter subclass. It also provides some fun roleplay possibilities. Like a dumber than rocks warrior who somehow survived the destruction of his city and now insists on trying to cook stews for the party which are really just (toxic) random junk that he found lying around in the rubble, but somehow occasionally knows stuff about magic, which usually causes him to go lie down saying "thinking makes me sleepy." Lot's of fun stuff there.

2. Path of the Bloodied: What can I say, I love blood themed subclasses and mechanics around taking damage and such, and this one does it fairly well without getting too out of hand and broken. Well done.

3. Shikensu Warrior: I really like the idea behind this subclass of gaining an advantage over your opponents from prior successes. There were one or two awkward things mechanic wise, but they weren't really that big of a snarl.
