    Spoiler: Grimaldus' rant (Long Version)

    "Do you see that?"

    (The Defenders are silent)

    "I said... DO YOU SEE THAT?!"

    (Still silent)

    "ANSWER ME!"

    (A few in the crowd says Yes sir)

    (Grimaldus starts laughing maniacally)

    "Are you all as insulted as I am? THIS is what they send against us? This RABBLE?! We hold one of the mightiest cities on the face of this planet. The fury of its guns sends all skyborne enemies to the ground in flames. We stand united in our thousands, our weapons without number, our purity without question and our hearts beating courage through our blood. And THIS is how they attack us? Brothers and sisters... A legion of beggars and alien dregs wheezes its way across the plains. Forgive me when the moment comes when they whine and weep against our walls. Forgive that I must order you to waste ammunition upon their worthless bodies. I have heard many speak my name in whispers since I came to Helsreach. I ask you now: Do you know me?"

    (A few yes's are heard in the combination of Marines and Steel Legionnaires)

    "DO YOU KNOW ME?!"

    (Yes's get louder)


    (loud cheers follow but they aren't really that into it)

    (Grimaldus kicks it up a notch)

    "Never again in life will your actions carry such consequences. Never again will you serve as you serve now. No duty will matter as much and no glory will taste as true! We are the defenders of Helsreach! On this day we carve our legend in the flesh of every alien we slay! WILL. YOU. STAND. WITH. ME?!"

    (thunderous cheering)


    (more thunderous cheering)

    "Sons and daughters of the Imperium! Our blood is the blood of heroes and martyrs! They DARE tread the sacred soil of our world?! We will throw their bodies from these walls when the final day dawns!"

    (ravenous cheering)


    "OUR CITY! OUR WORLD!" - the defenders reply

    (Grimaldus turns to face the horde of orks. Laughing)


    "BLOOD AND FIRE!" - defenders


    "FOR HELSREACH!" - defenders


    "FOR HELSREACH!" - defenders

    (the shouts have broken the glass of several nearby buildings)


    "HELSREACH!" - defenders

    A sentence is sarcasm IFF it has a /s at the end.

    See edits on almost all of my messages? It's because I'm a perfectionist and find flaws with what I'm saying after I've submitted my post.

    Use colored text? These forums don't have a dark mode so I use an extension to make one. As a side effect, all non-formatted text is white, even if you set it as a different color.
    UPDATE: I now use blue text if it's not serious (as per conventions) but not sarcasm, but I also use strikethrough.

    Default My judgements and medals!

    This is a list of my medal winning entries and my judgements of the competitions in which I've participated on these forums. Also included are some thoughts.

    Spoiler: Iron Chef:
    My favorite competition happens to be the one I'm worst at, I think. Still, I'm quite proud of the work I've done here, both as a chef and as a judge. Without further ado, here are my medal winning builds and my history of judgments.


    In the Atavist round:
    Kalshtar Jones, bronze medal and Anidina the Mad, silver medal.

    The competition had very low participation, which is why I managed to sneak away with two medals. If we're being honest neither of these is very good - they're very early work, and I've learned a lot since the time I created these. Then again, I keep learning every day I'm on these forums, and hopefully I'll see my current work the same way some day. I'm still a big fan of the fluff on both of these though, especially Anidina. I think it's worth a read.

    In the Tattooed Monk round:
    Captain O, bronze medal.

    Mechanically, this is probably my least favorite build I've ever created. It is basically the result of me being salty about my on inability to create a build that could score well and be interesting at the same time. I guess you could find something to like about this build, but to me, it is like the fluff I wrote for this one says: Captain O has no soul. Still, it won a medal, so it gets to be here, while Frough-Gee and Faderyn have to stay out. Such is life. As I'm writing these letters, this is the third and last build on the list for this competition; hopefully, there'll be more in the future.

    In the Thayan Gladiator round:
    Five-Punch Man, bronze medal

    Very happy to have edged out a medal here, and so close to silver, too! This round was huge, the biggest in many years, with 20 entries. I feel honored to have placed here, and this is one of my favorite builds I've done. I thought it was creative and effective, though not super powerful by any means. It started with asking myself how I could get a metal natural weapon, to combine thayan gladiator with disciple of dispater, and kind of grew from there.

    In the Imaskari Vengeance Taker round:
    Alkathira Hamerubot, bronze medal.

    Can't complain about bronze! I was pretty happy with Alkathira, though I did mess up by not having 5 levels of Abjurant Champion - I misremembered martial arcanist as applying to the class that AC was advancing, and I ended up with 19 CL when I could have had 30. Oh, well. I probably would've scored lower with only 9 levels of the SI, anyway, but see my post here for cool mid-op gish builds. As I said, I like this entry, and think it deserved the spot it got. I truly feel like I'm getting slightly better at this.

    In the Arcane Duelist round:
    Whitefeather, silver medal.

    Bah, I really thought I had something nice going there with dervish, but I was misreading the ability. This really turned me off from the build, because there's not one big clever idea here: what I thought was clever about it were the 100 little synergies, and if those break apart... Well, it still won silver, best I've done since my very first round participating (in which I only beat out one competitor) Good for me! One of these days I'll get gold.

    In the Berserk round:
    Anvil, silver medal

    My most fun Iron Chef entry, I think. I owe a lot of its success to Zaq and Daremetoidareyo, as I explained in the post-reveal discussion. It's an undead dragonborn ex-azurin who lives their life as a giant whale just to mess with the rules, and it ends up being the best tank I've ever designed - though I've since figured out less shenanigans-prone ways to achieve the same goal. I was really, really close to finally getting gold with this one, but Whambamsam won out by a quarter of a point. One day. EDIT: Unfortunately, I've since found out that rules compendium clarifies "spellcasting creature" in a way that pretty much cancels this idea. Damn. The boring alternative is still viable, but this build unfortunately doesn't work.

    In the Ballisteer round:
    Goliath of Gath, gold medal,
    and Queequeg, Silver Medal

    My first gold in Iron Chef! Goliath is a sling user throwing colossal++++ damage boulders and doing double damage on a full attack, while Queequeg is meant to be the ultimate harpoonist. Both of these builds have a lot of issues. I ****ed up big time reading expansion for Goliath, and I messed up the order of operations on Queequeg prrtty bad. Still, as of writing these words, I'm happy with both of them. On a 10-entry round, gold and silver isn't bad, too.

    In the Demonologist round:
    Aries Darantas, Honorable Mention!

    This entry got last place, but it's my first honorable mention! Well, first one to not be disqualified by winning another medal. It's wild, even if I do say so myself. I bent spellthief backwards in order to be able to enter demonologist with no other classes, which allowed me to create a build that can summon demons, and steal their spells to summon more of those demons, ad infinitum! I'm very happy with Aries, even though it's probably the messiest build I ever submitted. Give it a read!


    Judging Psion uncarnate: This was my first time actually engaging with the competition. I had very little knowledge of the system at this point outside what has been translated to Hebrew (only the 3 core books and 4 of the completes) but I like to think I managed to do a good job despite it all. This competition featured 3 excellent builds, including Zaq's Tapestry Whale, which remains one of my favorite dishes ever submitted.

    Judging Disciple of Mammon: Judging solo is very stressful, and that was a big competition. This ingredient didn't really bring out the best the chefs can do, in my opinion, but it did get us wide participation and a very diverse group of builds. I had to rank my favorite builds pretty low, and there was one incomplete entry I got genuinely upset with - partly because had it been completed, it would have swept the competition in my opinion. It also brought to my attention the urgent need for financial education among many of our esteemed chefs. How could you guys miss INFINITE MONEY as a class feature?

    Judging Crimson Scourge (Part 2 is here): This was an excellent round, in my view, though I was not a fan of a couple of the builds. A lot of creativity on display. I recommend reading through these entries.

    Judging celebrant of Sharess: This was an excellent ingredient, mechanically, though it has very disturbing implications. There was some good work on display here. This was a less thought out judgement than my usual style, and I'm unhappy with the way I treated one of the builds - but such is life. I think I should work on something in between my usual style and this one, if I want to judge more.

    Judging Shining Blade of Heironeous: But then, everything changed when The Viscount attacked.
    Extremely difficult round, that managed to get many inspiring entries in. This was an incredibly tough nut to crack, and many tried and failed - hence the terrible scores I handed out left and right. This was a huge amount of work, but I'm glad to have done it.

    Judging Dragon Descendant: A very contentious judgement of mine.

    Judging Umbral Disciple: I didn't know what to do with this as an ingredient. I've considered slapping 3 levels of UD on plenty of builds before, but I truly felt lost when faced with it as a challenge. Yet our competitors rose to the challenge! Shout out to Loky1109's Catoichi, my fave entry in this excellent round.

    That's it for the Iron Chef (for now). Coming up next:

    Spoiler: Villainous Competition:
    The VC isn't just a good concept for a competition in my opinion; It also opens up entire areas of play and rulesets which simply aren't accesible on ECL based competitions. I like it a lot, and I like running it. I did manage to judge it twice and compete once before taking over as chair, so here it is:


    In the Spooks and Spectres round:
    The Ghost Next Door, gold medal.

    My first time submitting an entry to the competition (my only time, when writing these letters) and I got a gold medal. Yay for me! At the risk of sounding boastful, I think I deserved this win. This was a Halloween round, and I really like my fluff here. My advice: DON'T READ THE CRUNCH BEFORE YOU READ THE FLUFF! I promise you, it's worth it. And... that's it. I don't wanna spoil anything.


    Judging Yin and Yang: An open request for judges for this round is how I found myself joining the competition. People had a few grievances with my judgment of this round, but rereading it, I stand by it. Very small pool of entries, which is a shame - I thought the basic idea behind the competition was very cool.

    Judging Sorta Pseudo: This competition featured some awesome fluff and a very diverse set of ideas, given how restrictive the ingredient seemed on the face of it. One entry was the obvious winner in my eyes, but the others were very well done as well. I really enjoyed judging this one, though I did delay a bunch.

    Judging Controller: A round guest-chaired by Venger. I didn't really want to judge it, and had a hard time doing so, but there was no one else for far too long. Still, the entries are fun and certainly worth reading through.

    That's it for the VC, for the foreseeable future. Up next...

    Spoiler: IC: E6 appetizer edition:
    I like E6 a lot. As you maybe know if you've read my posts on the subject, I'm a big low magic guy. E6 brings the diversity and comfort of 3.5 while allowing worlds which feel like classic fantasy settings. The competition, however, is hard for me. I find it very challenging to judge these entries, which is why (as of writing these words) I haven't. I found myself participating twice so far, and was lucky enough to win medals on both instances. I hope to participate more and judge this competition in the future.


    In the signature spells round:
    Braza, silver medal.

    I thought I'd try to join this competition, but couldn't come up with anything. Braza came to me while fine tuning an NPC in my head during a walk in the desert. I PMed the chair asking for an extension and got her down as soon as I got home. She's unconventional, cool, and she does fine power wise. I like her, and I'm glad the judge liked her too.

    In the Any Prior Ingredient Round:
    Laerlor, gold medal

    Whoof, I really messed this one up. Lucky for me, this was a high originality round, so I could sneak away with a gold medal I'm very happy with. I have a really clear image of who Laerlor is in my mind, and I like them a lot - which is why it's such a shame I didn't manage to write good fluff for them. I ran out of time (like Braza, this was a last minute idea), and in the end I just wrote something I hoped showcased their unique approach to life. Mechanics wise, yeah, I messed up - but I'm still happy with the idea.

    In the Barbarian round:
    Ka'assani, gold medal

    My spellscale middle aged druid who can't cast spells and barbarian with 3 Con. I was very happy with this entry upon submission. Sadly, I missed the fact that sleeping ruined my whole thing. Fixable with an item, but still sad. Highly recommended reading, still one of my favorite entries I've put out there. Would've been my downright favorite ever if it wasn't for the sleep issue.

    It's also my third entry into the E6 competition, and my third entry to win a medal - second in a row to win gold. 3/3 so far, hope to keep this streak going.

    In the Crafted Henchmen round:
    Mylf, silver medal.

    The round's idea was that we needed to create minions whole cloth. Lots of very fun entries were entered. My approach was to utilize the rules for kobold reproduction and an exotic curse to create an army of descendants that make you evil if you harm them. Pretty fun, give it a read.


    Judging Flight: Fun round. Flight seems like a very restricted ingredient in E6, and the raptorans, dragonborns and wildshape I expected did show up plenty - but it was nevertheless a good round, with a lot of creativity on display (even if a lot of said creativity failed to follow the rules.)

    Judging Skill Tricks: Interesting round, and pretty complex to judge. Many of the entries focused on areas of play I didn't see coming at all - whirlwinds, siege weaponey, feinting - so I think it proved to be a good ingredient.

    Judging Fire: Pretty cool round. I felt like there were more rules issues than usual, but maybe that's just me. Some things I easily saw coming - blasting, persistent fire spells, desert wind focus... Some things, however, I certainly didn't.

    That's it for E6. Up next...

    Spoiler: Junkyard Wars:
    Junkyard wars is a strange format. I'm not quite sure what I think about it. The amount of creativity one could have seems to shift drastically between rounds, and it is far more free form than any other ECL-based competition currently active here. I'm waiting to see more of it.


    In the Soul Eater Harvester of Souls round:
    The Nightmare of The Iridescent Grove, silver Medal

    I like Nightmare a lot, and I was glad to receive silver here - even though it's still a bronze medal in my eyes, given the fact that the next entry was given an unjust penalty because of a rules misunderstanding.

    This was an opportunity to build a version of something I've been pondering for a while, and in my opinion it turned out great. It's not the most powerful thing I've ever built, but for having no caster levels and 5 la, I think she does tremendously well.

    In the Complete Madness round:
    The Question, silver medal and Alnabi The Desert Wind, gold medal.

    This was, in my opinion, a truly inspired choice of round limitations, which inspired some real creativity. Out of seven entries submitted, I took the top 2 spots. I am Immensely proud of this achievement, and I feel it was well earned. The Desert wind manages to make hexblade pack a real punch, and does so with a lot of style, in my opinion. The Question is in my opinion the best entry I've ever made on these forums. It's sleek, powerful, and fun, and it has 10 levels of initiate of the order of the bow. It's unfortunately far too similar to Piggy Knowles' Zen Archer, which I've talked about after the reveal. Even if someone else thought of a lot of this stuff before me (and better, if we're being honest) I'm still very, very proud of The Question.


    Judging Giddy-Up!: This was a small round, with only 4 entries (and 3 chefs). I enjoyed the entries, mostly. Special shout-out to Bearstack, for shapeshifting both himself and his mount into bears. It doesn't work, but it's still great.

    Judging Binderless Binder: Extremely tough round, with only two entries. Both were creative, one had a ton of potential.

    Judging Not-Druid: Great round! I'm not typically a fan of full caster optimization, but this was really nice. The idea was having spellcasting and natural weapons without taking druid. My focus as a nudge here on UoC was how well the two were combined. This round featured a lot of weird tricks, and I highly recommend giving it a read.

    Spoiler: Apple Corer
    I'm looking forward to seeing what this one develops into. I don't think it's really for me, but I can see myself judging it every once in a while, and I might participate if some round ever really inspires me.


    Judging Champion of Corellon Larethian:

    I wasn't too impressed with the entries this round, from a mechanical standpoint - but then again, it's a brand new concept, and the rules are very wonky. I still think it's worth looking at, if only for the novelty of lookingat what people go for when they're allowed to ignore prerequisites.

    And... that's it, for now. Thanks for reading!

    Games won: 9 (6/2/1)
    Deaths: 9,5 (6,5/3/0) (twice at endgame)

    (Town, Mafia, Neutral)
    The half death was a suicide after the wolves surrender, which allowed a neutral to win as well. Not included is a game where I got sick d1 and subbed out. Technically lost as scum.

    St Fan's extended signature

    This is the full signature I intended to include before finding out it was limited in size:

    Sleep Mask of Restful Slumber

    Price: 2,880 gp
    Body Slot: Face
    Caster Level: 8th
    Aura: Faint; (DC 16) enchantment
    Activation: standard (command)

    Donning this eye mask and speaking the command word (“good night”) activates a restful slumber spell on the wearer for the next 8 hours. It only works once per day.
    As a side-effect, the user is considered blind as long as wearing it.
    Prerequisites: Craft Wondrous Item, restful slumber.
    Cost to Create: 1,440 gp, 115 XP, 3 days.

    Yagor: Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that the magical eye mask you crafted wasn’t a nice gift...
    Myeline: Well, you’re so often complaining about having such a hard time finding proper sleep, I thought that would be an interesting arcane experiment.
    Yagor: You try growing up in the streets with your alleged “companions in misfortune” ready to stab you in your sleep for a bigger part of the loot, and we’ll see if you don’t end up with insomnia as a flaw. No, I’m just surprised... you’re usually so stingy with your gold... or components... or magical items...
    Myeline: That is a blatant lie! I’m the very model of generosity.
    Yagor: Seriously? How many times have I heard you grumbling about how much you paid for your so-called “ancestral relic”?
    Myeline: I’ll let you know that 400 golds is the exact, genuine market price for a masterwork elven thinblade.
    Yagor: Except that, current looks notwithstanding, you’re not an elf but a changeling. So how come it could be a family heirloom?
    Myeline: It is! It belonged to my father!
    Yagor: Who was using it as wall decoration, I guess? But if it’s really your heritage, why did you have to pay for it?
    Myeline: BECAUSE MY DAD IS A FREAKING MISER, THAT’S WHY! Honestly, I had to haggle...
    Yagor: Eh... shouldn’t be a surprise coming from a half-dragon... like father, like daughter...

    DM: At the end of the meal, the innkeeper is bringing you the cheese plate. Roll for initiative.
    PC: Excuse me, what?
    DM: I said, roll for initiative. They like their cheese really ripe in these parts. They have the ooze type.

    "Excuse me, but... is it a GOOD or a BAD thing when the DM can't help bursting into laughter every time he hears the phrase 'level-appropriate encounter'? No, just curious..."

    A list of all names I've been called so far:
    Spoiler: Names


    Earn your spot in the list above by thinking of another novelty spelling of my name!

    Spoiler: Alignment test results:
    I Am A: Neutral Good Human Wizard (1st Level)
    Ability Scores:
    Alignment: Neutral Good A neutral good character does the best that a good person can do. He is devoted to helping others. He works with kings and magistrates but does not feel beholden to them. Neutral good is the best alignment you can be because it means doing what is good without bias for or against order. However, neutral good can be a dangerous alignment when it advances mediocrity by limiting the actions of the truly capable.
    Race: Humans are the most adaptable of the common races. Short generations and a penchant for migration and conquest have made them physically diverse as well. Humans are often unorthodox in their dress, sporting unusual hairstyles, fanciful clothes, tattoos, and the like.
    Class:Wizards are arcane spellcasters who depend on intensive study to create their magic. To wizards, magic is not a talent but a difficult, rewarding art. When they are prepared for battle, wizards can use their spells to devastating effect. When caught by surprise, they are vulnerable. The wizard's strength is her spells, everything else is secondary. She learns new spells as she experiments and grows in experience, and she can also learn them from other wizards. In addition, over time a wizard learns to manipulate her spells so they go farther, work better, or are improved in some other way. A wizard can call a familiar- a small, magical, animal companion that serves her. With a high Intelligence, wizards are capable of casting very high levels of spells.

    I agree with the above results.
