    Welcome one and all to the Voting thread for the eleventh Pathfinder Grab Bag Competition! We have four wonderful entries for you to peruse over and only one will end up taking home the gold!

    Now, the way the voting for this competition works is as follows:

    • You receive five votes to cast.
    • The first three votes are to be given to the entries that you believe should come in first, second and third place respectively. First place votes are worth seven points, second place three points and third place one point each. Keep in mind that such choices should go to the entries that you believe fit most closely to the given concept of the contest and not just the entries you like the most.
    • The fourth vote is to be given to the entry that you believe is "Most Likely to See Play". This vote is cast for the entry that you could see yourself allowing as a DM or you could see yourself wanting to and being allowed to play at an actual game session by your DM.
    • The fifth vote is to be given to the entry that you believe is the "Most Unique". This vote is cast for the entry that you least expected to see made for this competition and that stands out the most compared to it's peers.
    • You may apply all types of votes to the same entry (but you of course cannot select the same entry for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place), but doing this does not better the chances of that entry winning anymore than if you selected three separate entries.
    • Once you make your vote, that's final. You can not take it back or change it. The first vote I see and tally on the scoreboard is how it will be until the end of the voting period.
    • Entrants are allowed to vote and can vote for their own entries if they so wish.
    • Please give reasoning for why you selected an entry as the recipient of any of your votes.
    • Please Bold your choice for each vote.
    • In the case of any ties I will cast the tiebreaker vote.



    The voting will remain open through February 15th and the winners will be declared February 16th.

    My first place vote goes towards the contractor by Milo v3. In some ways it is very similar to my own entry, covering a broad range of oaths to choose from, though it looks like he's put a lot more work into it.

    My second place vote goes to the Solarsworn, even though I think it is the least playable of all the entries, given that it stops a player from getting 9th level spells. Given that, I am honest enough to say that given the subject of the contest, it deserves second place.

    My third place vote goes to my own entry, but I don't want to be self serving and explain why. I want others to vote or not vote for my entry based on its own merit.

    My fourth vote, the one that is most likely to see play, again goes to my own entry. But this time I will explain why.

    The Solarsworn is a) a prestige class, which in itself makes it less likely to see play than a base class, and b) stops 9th level casting.

    The Axiopact is once again a prestige class, and I'm not really sure the power it gives is enough to overcome the power of not taking a prestige class gives.

    As for my own entry vs the contractor entry, I feel there is far less paperwork to do with my entry, and that is why I think mine is most likely to see play.

    The fifth vote, most unique, I have trouble deciding. Both mine and the contractor are hardly unique, so that throws them out of the vote. Given that I cannot decide between the axiopact and the solarsworm, I will give them both the vote.

    Unfortunately, you have to choose one or the other.

    Ok, I will choose the Axiopact then.

    My first place vote towards the Contractor. It might not be techically complete, but I feel it fits the flavour of the competition while still allowing for really unique expirences. Also I know that there was a huge amount of effort behind it.

    My second place vote goes to the Solarsworn, I really like how the angellic traits develop in the character, though it could be better formatted.

    My third place vote goes to the Axiopact, I love the flavour in both its backstory and abilities.

    Most likely to see play, I'm going to have to vote for the Axiopact. Even though I don't have Axomites in my setting, I really like inevitables so I can send these against my players.

    Most Unique, I'd say the Axiopact. I didn't even know of the Axiomites until that entry.

    1st: Pact Bound Warrior. This class needs some abilities to fill out all of the dead levels, but its pacts are pretty solid.
    2nd: Contractor. I thought this one was going to be number 1, but there are only a handful of Spheres done, and losing patrons once you match their HD doesn't sit well with me. Also: obeisances that make you younger/older. I know they were in Darker Than Black, but not being mental/behavioral made them horribly out of place there, too.
    3rd: Solarsworn. I enjoyed the options, plus the learning of Cleric spells (though I wouldn't've put the restriction on the newly gained spell slots only being usable for divine spells).

    MLTSP: Pact Bound Warrior. A great way to play an elemental fighty-type with simple rules, among other things. Still needs to fill those dead levels, though.
    MUE: Contractor. Even though I'm not a fan of their Obsessive Soul-pledging Disorder, it was unexpected to see a class that can make pacts with fairly minor beings.

    1st: Pact Bound Warrior. I love this Class, it screams awesome.
    2nd: Contractor. This is quite a awesome work of Art Homebrew, But It lacks a few key things
    3rd: Solarsworn.The Sheer awesome of Fluff is the best part.
    Most Likely To See Play: Pact Bound Warrior. I do really like this class.
    Most Unique: Axiopact This is a unique class, that i like, As Milo said, I never heard of Axiomites before this.
    "All things must end, and you will be among the first."
    I love Ceika <3

    As I mention at the beginning of the contest threads, the placers each receive a pixelated trophy.
