    Congrats to everyone on the last competition - as VT said, a TIE is unheard-of in these things and goes to show the quality of entries we get.

    That said, I'm looking forward to the new contest - I have no idea what I'm going to do yet, but an urban theme looks promising...

    How often has there been a tie?

    Edit: Nevah mind, just read the voting thread.

    Hmm...Kind of a toughie this one is. I was hoping to do something humorous but all the ideas that immediately spring to mind are for horror campaigns.


    Not that horror hasn't done pretty darn good for me so far...

    It's a pretty wide-open theme, so just use your imaginations.

    For inspiration Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman would be a good bet, or take a look at The Spirit trailer here.

    It'd actually be pretty cool if we had some pulp fiction/noir type entries.

    Wow, I'm shocked and happy at the same time. Thanks, Bhu. If I hadn't been flying all over the country, I would have voted for your Singers.

    I noticed the rules mention towns and cities, possibly implying we can do small town monsters. Can we ? I have a few ideas I'm chucking around.

    Just a small town kobold, living in a lonely world,
    She took the lightning rail going anywhere,
    Just a city ghast, born and raised on Balor's Pass,
    He took the lightning rail going anywhere.

    A cleric making quite a fuss, troglodytes with oderous musk,
    For a smile they can share the night,

    It goes on and on and on and on...

    Wizards, waiting... walkin' down the boulevard,
    Greater Shadows searching into the night,
    Torches...Changelings,
    Living just to find emotion,
    Hiding somewhere in the night.

    Working hard to get my fill, everybody wants a thrill,
    Betting anything to roll the dice just one more time,
    Some will crit, some will fail,
    Some are born with Vorpal Flails,
    Oh role-playing never ends...

    It goes on and on and on and on.


    Too good of a chance to pass up

    You have resurrected an old idea I had for a critter. It'll be another dark one this time, but I think you might like it.

    As long as it has an urban theme it's good to go.

    Either is fine, just as long as they are city-based. Urban Legends is just me trying to be witty with the title.

    I was thinking of swapping out the entry I've already got up and I was wondering what everyone else thought. I've put the draft description of my alternative entry in spoilers below, do you think I should stat the idea out or just stick with the entry I've got?;

    Spoiler
    Show
    Spirit of Dullness
    Large urban areas can be dull places. Thousands of people inhabit them yet its still possible to be isolated. People can travel to their jobs and see the same faces for decades and still view them as nothing more than a stranger. Never striking up a conversation, never exchanging pleasantries and never even as much as giving a smile. Some evil mages have taken advantage of this, binding the would-be-departed spirits of those who have lived such lives to the material plane and using them to create servants as mindlessly loyal and ferocious as zombies, but much more cunning.

    Feel free to message and run any past me. Had this year's written up until October, but afterward don't have anything specific in mind as of yet.

    Oh yeah, I figured as much, I just wanted to goad everyone into posting something so this doesn't turn into one of those competitions where we have >3 entries.

    This is actually my first statting a monster, and I think I may be in a little over my head

    Congrats to everyone on the last competition. Many many awesome entries.

    I'll probably be tossing my own into this one, being a city dweller and all I feel like I'm obligated. Just what yet...I dunno.

    The first draft of my chiminey grazing Smokey Floaters is up.

    Bisected8: Normally I would PM you this, but my box is bursting at the seams and I am nervous about deleting anything just at the moment. High charisma seems especially at odds with the theme of your entry. Based on my thinking with the Beige Dragons I would suggest considering making a special ability that lets them use their wisdom instead of their charisma to determine their defection bonus and then swapping the Charisma and Dexterity scores... prudence and forethought to avoid the unexpected seems like a trait for dullness.

    I thought about it, the problem is wisdom doesn't really fit into the theme of something which is based around the same old same old (at least to me, a high wisdom score implies a wide range of knowledge), while your Biege dragons were dull in the sense, for example, a stuffy old librarian would be, the theme here is more in line with someone who just follows the same rountine without thinking. In the end I decided it could be charismatic in the same way that people prefer familiar things.

    Ok, my entry is up. However, I'm having a little trouble with the CR. The creature itself is rather weak, but it's special abilities/attacks make it extraordinarily powerful. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
