    Default Screen Name WINNERS!

    Before I announce the winners, note that there were only 24 votes cast, s there were several ties. My tiebreaker procedure was to personally cast the deciding vote for my choice among those entries that tied, discounting those that won a clear majority in another category. I'd like to spread the winning around, you know?

    So without further delay, ladies and gentlemen, the winners of the Screen Name Prestige Class Contest:

    Best Warrior Class (mechanics and flavor):
    This was the biggest landslide, with a clear winner getting 10 out of the 24 votes cast: Kazdaran Wolfriders of Gorbash's Hunt by Gorbash Kazdar.

    Best Spellcaster Class (mechanics and flavor):
    A much closer contest, with The Grand Scorpina by Scorpina pulling out only 4 votes (but still beating three other classes with 3 votes each).

    Best Skill-User Class (mechanics and flavor):
    The Guessmith walks away with it, with 8 votes.

    Best Flavor/Introductory Text:
    This category had a three way tie between Gorbash Kazdar, Guessmith, and Ikkitosen, but I break ties around here, and I say the Ikkitosen by Ikkitosen.

    Best Articulation of the Screen Name Theme:
    Another close category, with 12 entries splitting 24 votes. A four-way tie between Alarra, Gorbash, Guessmith, and Mohkomancer. I choose Mohkomancer, by Mohko

    Funniest Class:
    A win here for Petey the Frog Boy and his Disciple of Petey the Frog Boy with 6 votes.

    And now the big prize...
    Most Likely to be Used in an Actual Campaign:
    Interestingly, this category had the most number of vote-getters, with 16 entries getting votes. There was a massive six-way tie between Alarra, Elays, Gilgamesh, Gorbash Kazdar, and Ikkitosen. But once again, I cast the tie-breaker, and I chose:

    The Alarran Dreamwalker by Alarra!

    Finally, the Website Staff Award was a clear favorite:
    Kazdaran Wolfriders of Gorbash's Hunt by Gorbash Kazdar.

    Congratulations to all the winners, and stay tuned for the next contest!

    Wow! ;D

    Two wins and ties in three categories - I'm stunned! Thanks so much to everyone, for the help and the votes, especially everyone who posted on my thread and particularly Picasso007 who was the first to critique the class.

    Major congratulations to all the other winners, and I have to say it means even more for me to get a win because there were so many fantastic classes in every category.

    By the way, Giant - you have Spellcaster up there twice; I assume one of them is supposed to be Best Skill Based class?

    My name's just Mohko.

    Anyway, what does "Articulation of the Screen Name Theme" mean? Me and my poor english skills can't decipher it. :)

    I can't say that I'm not upset that I didn't win anything, but it's just jealousy :)

    Seriously, Gorbash deserved those awards. He did a fantastic job. I'm a little sad that my second favorite class didn't get any awards, though (and no, it wasn't mine 8)).

    If it makes you feel better, I could tell I voted your class to two different categories. :P

    Congrats to all the winners! There were many awesometastic classes posted by everybody, several of which have a good possibility of making their way into my campaigns.

    It means your class did the best job of actually being about your screen name.

    2 ties, one win :o - thanks loads everyone! Tbh I'm suprised, what with the mechanics problems I had with the class (here's a big thanks to everyone who posted and helped, esp. Zherog - I'm certain a large chunk of any success is down to you people).

    Congratulations to all of the other winners, and thanks to everyone that voted :D

    Ikki.

    I didn't get a chance to look at the boards until today, and thanks to everyone who voted for my Tiny class. I didn't actually write it intending to be humorous, but with the subject matter it was hard to avoid. :)

    If anyone actually wants to use the class, feel free and let me know how it works out!
