    Default Recall A Villain! (3.X) [Voting Closed, Villain Pending]

    Did you ever look at one of the past villains and wonder, "what if we'd voted differently?" Have you ever speculated on what half-formed evils were aborted when popular opinion took a sharp left turn? In other words, did you ever want to find out what almost got posted?

    Now is the time to find out. The phantom mists swirling in the vaults of VUAV have opened into the sealed alternate realities, ready to release one of the "what if" villains from the first ten Vote Up A Villain contests.

    First, you'll decide which villain gets another chance to exist. Then, whatever details were never resolved will be voted on.

    Currently Voting On: Voting Closed, Villain Pending

    Zarth-aron the Traitor.

    Because githzerai need more love.

    Cool concept Afro.

    Lets see what the Nightshade would have been like. A plant whose job it is to be evil? Paid plants forever!

    ...Sooo...still bitter about that whole 'Animal Villain' thing, eh?

    Personally, I want to know more about this Pactfallen. Warlocks are always fun.

    Well, there's nowhere to diverge there. Unless I make it Neutral. Or a pony, which is just not happening.

    Nice spin on your old classic. Though I am sad to see nothing Astrally up there. :P

    I vote for Entropic Collector, though the Warlock was a close second.

    Please, please, please when using non-core material, cite to the books. There are too many books to wade through to find the one with the feat, special ability or spell you use.

    Aww...


    Looking at the table, Hateful sounds suspiciously like a Diablo critter while Magraroth sounds grand. Therefore I'm voting Hateful, being certain it won't be anything like it sounds. Looking at the table, I'm also wondering what something called a No Freaking Way be like.

    Nightshade

    It's an evil plant. Well, a plant with an evil job. It's a plant, with a job, which is evil.

    Yea, that takes my vote.

    Zarth-aron looks like there might be a good story there, so that is what I vote for.

    You know, afro, you've apparently had dibs on Vote Up A Prestige Class since VUAV1. I don't remember you ever running that contest.

    Is that a hint? You have a point...

    Also, you totally didn't vote.

    No, I was just running through VUAV1 to find that lawn quote and ran across that. I would think it's mildly rude to claim dibs on something and then sit on it for a dozen or so other contests.

    As for my lack of vote, that's because I'm still torn between the mercenary lawn and the horrible horrible bees.

    Well, you already know it's not a lawn. It was in my notes, for cripes' sakes!

    Besides, part of the reason is that I've been busy with concentrated awesome. So nyah.
