    Spoiler: Grimaldus' rant (Long Version)
    Show


    "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)

    "I. AM. GRIMALDUS. OF THE BLACK TEMPLARS! A BROTHER TO THE STEEL LEGIONS OF THIS DEFIANT WORLD!"

    (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)

    "WILL YOU STAND WITH ME?!"

    (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)

    "THIS IS OUR CITY! THIS IS OUR WORLD! SAY IT! SAY IT! CRY IT SO THAT THE BASTARDS IN ORBIT WILL HEAR OUR FURY! OUR CITY! OUR WORLD!"

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

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

    "RUN ALIEN DOGS! COME TO ME! COME TO US ALL! COME AND DIE IN BLOOD AND FIRE!"

    "BLOOD AND FIRE!" - defenders

    "FOR THE TEMPLARS! FOR THE STEEL LEGION! FOR HELSREACH!"

    "FOR HELSREACH!" - defenders

    "LOUDER!"

    "FOR HELSREACH!" - defenders

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

    "THEY CANNOT HEAR YOU BROTHERS!"

    "HELSREACH!" - defenders


    "HURL YOURSELVES AT THESE WALLS INHUMAN FILTH! DIE ON OUR BLADES! I. AM. GRIMALDUS. AND I WILL CAST YOUR CARCASSES FROM THESE HOLY WALLS!"

    "GRIMALDUS! GRIMALDUS! GRIMALDUS!" - 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.

    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.

    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.

    Medalists:


    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.

    Judgments:

    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.

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

    Villainous Competition:

    I really admire this competition and what it's trying to do. There are so many rules and options we never get to use in other competitions, and this one lets us utilize them. However, it has some deeply set issues I'm not really sure how to solve. Mainly, it feeling too restrictive and not restrictive enough at the same time, and it failing to definitively answer one important question: Should a villain be CR appropriate, or as powerful as can be?

    Still, I really like the VC.

    Medalists:

    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.

    Judgments:

    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.

    That's it for the VC, for now. Up next...

    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.

    Medalists:

    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.

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

    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. I'm waiting to see more of it.

    Judgements:

    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.


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