    Well I'm cooking up two entries as each one has its own particular schtick.

    Both are done mechanics wise just need to flesh them out but time is against me. Which one do I fluff out first in case I can't finish two?

    Decisions. Decisions.

    After the contest is over, where can we see the finished builds? Are they only available to the judge?

    The finished builds will be posted in the thread for all to see and judge. Also, my constantly-under-construction Hall of Heroes (check my signature) is an attempt to capture links to the builds and judges' scores for those who don't have the patience or time to read the whole thread. Absent even that much patience, the OP keeps links to all the winning builds.

    You go out of town for Thanksgiving and look what happens?

    As luck has it, I took my copy of Heroes of Horror with me, and my good friend Jack Daniels and I (as he clearly 'consulted' with the WotC editors on this book) went through every questionable rule concerning the Corrupt Avenger that I could find, and tossed out rulings on them - they're coming, hold on.

    I just want to catch up on the last 5(!) pages of thread and various PMs to see if anything needs to be addressed immediately.

    Ruling the First: Treat the 'Unnerved' condition as a fluff text for an improved shaken condition. In other words, it is in all ways identical to shaken except for the increased penalties.

    Ruling the Second: The condition lasts for a number of rounds equal to the Corrupt Avenger's Charisma modifier (minimum 1 round).

    Ruling the Third
    : A Corrupt Avenger's sworn foe can be selected from any of the Favored Enemies available to a vanilla (AKA no Alternate Class Features) PHB Ranger. While this does stack with a Ranger's Favored Enemy bonus, it cannot be used in place of any feat or class feature that requires a Favored Enemy.
    Exception: You may, at your option, select an Organization as the Ranger Alternate Class feature.

    Ruling the Fourth: Consider Heroes of Horror to be the primary source for the Taint rules.

    Ruling the Fifth: People, seriously? There are maximum limits to your Depravity/Corruption scores (unless you've become immune, in which case your Taint is fixed) before your character becomes an NPC (Which would be Bad).

    Ruling the Sixth: Alright people, enough with the speculation. Save some originality for the competitors, eh?

    Ack! I intended a "weird, different Thanksgivings" joke, but may have veered into forum-unfriendly territory. Quick, someone find more confusing class features so we can give Kuulvheysoon a reason to crack open another bottle of Jack!

    If a Corrupt Avenger drinks bottles of Jack, does that mean his corruption goes up and his depravity goes down? Or is it the other way around?

    I'd rule it as both to be honest. Were it, say Havana club 7 Aņejos, both would go down (desinfecting alcohol, good booze to calm the nerves). Vodka (specifically Stolichnaya) decreses corruption, and increases depravity

    I thought I would be able to complete my submission this Saturday, but I probably won't. Curse you, real life!

    If I can't submit a build, I'll try to judge.

    Um, quick question. I was touching up the last bit of mechanics on the build and noticed that the Corrupt Avenger never details how to determine their caster level. Are we to assume it is equal to their Corrupt Avenger level?

    Thanks

    I just noticed a scoring issue that got missed in the round it was in a few rounds back.. Not that it mattered in the scoring because the build would have still been at the same rank. If anyone cares to know, send me a PM. I'll not plug up this thread with any unneeded dialogue.

    Well, that was... spectacular. My power supply back-surged into the motherboard, and fried everything. Now I'm back on-line, sort of, but have lost all my previous data regarding the build(s) I was going to submit for this challenge.

    This makes me a very sad panda.
