Would you possibly divide the entries by CR block? It'd make it slightly easier when reading all the entries...

2006-01-04, 06:33 PM
Ok, here's the CR breakdown. I made two or three corrections to the listed CRs, but none of them caused the character to change blocks.

Low Level (CR 1-5)
CR 5: Ulrich the Bitter by Izekichi

Low-Mid Level (CR 6-10)
CR 8: Mm the Clan-less by Turin
CR 9: Avanaco "Avi" Istas by Wukei
CR 9: Aldus Peake, were-wendigo by MisterRaziel
CR 10: Ashadur the Red by heretic

High-Mid Level (CR 11-15)
CR 11: Grand Vizier Grundakar Riscavolan by LeifVignirsson
CR 11: Qoppa-en-san, ettin bard by palcosmo
CR 12: Dawn Van'Wynteer by PandaGaki
CR 13: Twilight by Sucros
CR 13: Father Arba by adanedhel9
CR 14: Druzar Stalek by Doklahar
CR 14: Kobun the Scalebreaker by Skyserpent
CR 15: Harsheck Icefingers by DarkMonkey
CR 15: Malager Grimvale by Ragnarok
CR 15: Donovan Silverwind by Tarkahn

High Level (CR 16-20)
CR 18: The Snow Queen by Phasm
CR 20: Atar Hrv by Vaynor
CR 20: Saint Kalauz, the Icy Avenger by The_Glyphstone
CR 20: Grandmother Winter by Picasso007

Heh, mine is the only mid-low level entry that is not a were-something. ;)

Edit: Another thing I noticed: Wukei's entry says CR 5 and EL 9, and here Avi is listed under the 6-10 CR bracket. Whose version should we vote by?

2006-01-05, 06:59 PM
Auberzaan, Kryst Wizard (http://www.giantitp.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=Contests;action=display;num=11347836 67) seems to have not made it to the ballot. An update correcting this omission or a PM explaining it would be appreciated. Thanks!

Whoops, my bad on the CR for Wukei's entry. I've corrected it. I'll go through and check the rest. If anyone wants to change a vote due to this error, please PM VOTE asap.

My apologies.

EDIT: Whew, that was interesting. A few entries were a bit off in CR. Druzar Stalek went from 14 to 15 (looks like a typo or simple adding error), and Harsheck went from 15 to 14 (he has only NPC class levels, which means his CR is one less than his level). These aren't big issues, though, since they didn't change category.

However, Qoppa-en-san did. He's listed at CR 11, but his 5 levels in Bard should be non-associated (they don't fit the strengths of an ettin), which means they only add +2 (really 2.5) CR, onto a base CR of 6. Thus, he should be CR 8. Again, if anyone needs to modify a vote due to this, send a second PM to VOTE asap.

To contestants - no problem for the mixups. CR is a difficult thing to figure, especially with monsters and non-asscociated levels. It's all good now.

Heh, mine is the only mid-low level entry that is not a were-something.
My guy was just a plain jane human ;)

However, once the ruling became I couldn't team up with an artist I had to drop out. Can't draw for the life of me (nor do I have a working scanner) :-/

2006-01-05, 09:45 PM
Just a note about Druzar Staleks CR, the Gravetouched Ghoul template has a CR adjustment of +1 and a Level Adjustment of +2. The CR really is 14 (5 rogue, 7 assassin, 1 evolved undead, 1 gravetouched ghoul)

Sorry to be nit picky, but I just wanted to clear that up.

My bad, I misread that. At least it didn't move it to another category ::)

2006-01-06, 03:02 AM
*heart beats loudly in suspense*

Hm...being the only low level candidate was too good to be true. ;D

2006-01-07, 04:23 PM
Low level (CR 1-5):
Ulrich the Bitter (http://www.giantitp.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=Contests;action=display;num=11336209 51) by Izekichi (CR 5)
Avanaco "Avi" Istas (http://www.giantitp.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=Contests;action=display;num=11334975 39) by Wukei (CR 5)

Not any more.

2006-01-07, 09:05 PM
Not any more.

Exactly what I meant. ;)

2006-01-08, 08:25 PM
Oops, sorry about the CR for Qoppa-en-san. :P Thanks for the fix Gorbash.

Just as a reminder, please send votes in the "Category: Entry" format suggested in the Contest Rules & Guidelines thread. It's hard to read otherwise.

Also, I'm not going to count votes that read "I vote for X in all categories it qualifies for." Please at least take the time to figure out what those categories are.

I'm not saying that you can't do that if that's your decision - I'm just saying that I'm not going to sit there and try to interpret votes.

Comrade Gorby: The entry for Mim the Clan-less has been disqualified. If you voted for this entry and wish to change your vote to another entry, please send a PM to VOTE asap. Otherwise, those votes will be counted as abstaining.

2006-01-13, 01:24 AM
Since some will want to revote, I imagine that the vote deadline and winner announcements have been pushed back. Any idea when these two events occur?

2006-01-13, 01:31 AM
My apologies, I thought I had included that information in the last post. (I think I did in an earlier incarnation, lost during the server move.)

The deadline for votes is noon Friday (12:00 PM January 13 EST). The winners will most likely be announced on Sunday.

2006-01-13, 01:35 AM
Good to know. Thanks. :)
