    We're a little different than most of the optimization threads. We run on CR instead of ECL.

    Contestants:
    You will need to present a write-up of your build with at least one of the following points: 5 CR, 10 CR 15 CR, 20 CR, and a "sweet spot" that you feel is the high point of the build, as well as presenting a fully-fleshed out 20 CR build in the table below. Feel free to present as many of these as you like, and please give a rundown of the build's abilities and playability at all of the levels you didn't show. The rules are as follows:

    Secret Laboratory:
    Competitors will be free to use any official 1st party (WotC) 3.5 rulebook in constructing their builds. Dragon Compendium is allowed, but Dragon magazine is disallowed. Unearthed Arcana is allowed. Web-exclusive 3.0 or 3.5 materials by WotC are expressly allowed, but take care to verify that an updated version did not appear in print elsewhere, as this may cause an Elegance deduction at the judges' discretion. Alternate rule systems from UA such as gestalt or Generic Classes are not allowed, as they create a different playing field. Item Familiars and Taint are also banned from the competition. Leadership and all similar abilities are banned for sanity reasons.
    Builds that are fully monstrous are allowed at no penalty. All class levels are to be added on as associated class levels.
    Elite array (15, 14, 13, 12, 10, 8) is the assumed ability score generation method.
    Some monstrous characters can technically qualify for Epic feats as soon as their ECL is over 20. While regular Epic feats will be allowed, Epic Spellcasting and all other Epic feats that affect spells, psionic powers, or item creation are not permitted. Including these would give an unfair advantage over standard characters. For Incarnum characters, Epic Open Chakra feats are allowed; other Epic Incarnum feats are not. The Essentia Capacity increases for Epic capacity as described on p. 212. For all characters, please note that Racial Hit Dice do not count towards Epic Progression; use the regular progression even if the BAB ends up higher than 20.

    Deadlines:
    Contestants will have until 23:59 GMT Sunday March 26th to create their builds and PM them to the Supreme Chancellor. Builds will then be posted simultaneously, to avoid copying. Judges will have until 23:59 GMT Friday April 14th* to judge the builds and submit their scores. If no judges have scored by that point, only the scores of the first judge to submit will be counted. *Judging deadline is subject to extension as/if required.

    Judging:
    Judging will be based on the following criteria, with each build rated on a scale from 1 (very poor) to 5 (exemplary) in each area: Originality, Build Elegance, Competence and Power, Memorable Villainy.
    Keep these questions in mind when judging each category:
    Originality - Is it unexpected?
    Build Elegance - Is it mechanically pretty?
    Competence and Power - Can it do what the concept asks of it? Is this a powerfully-built character?
    Memorable Villainy - Is this a villain with style? Will it be the BBEG players long to finally kill and then talk about for weeks?
    Unearthed Arcana can be penalized for elegance if the specific feature seems unnecessary or makes the playing field unfair (In this case, you can give a 1 if it makes the field unfair.)
    Power level is up to you. Cheese is acceptable, but should be kept to a sane level unless you're showcasing a new TO build you've discovered. As the Iron Chef competition states, a little cheddar can be nice, but avoid the mature Gruyere unless you're making a cheese fondue.
    You may not judge if you entered the contest, unless you withdraw your submission.

    Presentation:
    Builds will be posted anonymously, in order to avoid the potential of bias towards a particular competitor. For this reason, please don't put your name in the build, as I'm likely to miss it when reviewing the entries!

    Note:
    There is now a hard limit on two (2) entries per competitor.

    Using the table below, the easiest way to use it is to go to the top left of the private message, and click the little a/A icon. It allows you to see what you're writing.
    Due to concerns about standardizing entry format, I'd like everyone to try to use the following table for their entry.

    Speculation:
    Please don’t post or speculate on possible builds until the reveal, in order to avoid spoiling the surprise if a particular competitor is producing a build along those lines.
    Once builds are revealed, please do not comment on errors or rules issues on entries unless you are a judge. If you have such a comment, wait until the final reveal to post it.

    Get ready to share those Evil thoughts. This edition’s villain is:

    He slimed me (the dreaded ooze round)!


    Limitations


    • Must be "ooze-related". This can mean of the Ooze type, someone who summons or controls oozes, uses ooze-theme spells or abilities etc. I'm willing to allow a bit of leeway with this one, but the build should be obviously ooze related/inspired. Regardless of type, your entry must have an Intelligence score.
    • As always, must be Evil in alignment


    We will award 1st through 3rd places, and a possible Honorable Mention.
    So, start your evil plotting!

    Submission:
    To standardize Entries, please use this format when sending it in:

    PM: Thurbane
    Subject: Villainous Competition 19, Name of your Entry
    For Revisions and disputes, do the same thing. It makes it easier for me finding the entries in my mail box.
    More questions? PM me with Villainous Competition 19 Questions in the header.

    Tips for submitting your entry, provided by Weaselguy:

    - Use capitalization and punctuation, correctly.
    - Make good use of Spoilers, for cleanliness.
    - Don't forget your sources. If it's something that can be found in the contents section, then book title seems to be fine. Obscure stuff, may want to include page number too.
    - DeviantArt has about 9 billion pictures that you can reference, I can almost guarantee you can find one there to fit your character.
    - Make good use of tables. In addition to the Build table and the Spells table, I like doing on e for my Ability Scores, just to keep it neat.
    - Do a build stub at the top of your Build Table, something like Wizard 2/Fighter 3/Abjurant Champion 5/Eldritch Knight 10
    As always: let's keep it nice.

    I'll mention that again - LET'S KEEP IT NICE! Bickering, name calling and nasty comments on the entries or other forum members are not tolerated.

    I'm foreseeing a lot of template-stacking and Vizzini on this round.

    Will someone actually attempt the obvious choice on this one?

    I don't think we're officially allowed to say, but there were options mentioned in the previous competitions that were apparently very obvious.
    That's all I can think of, at any rate.

    Not sure of it's origins, but in these comps "Vizzini" means second-guessing your entry because you assume someone else will be submitting a very similar entry.

    It's too bad Spell Sovereign is off the table. It's definitely the best ooze-themed prestige class out there.

    ... Thank you for that. I was about halfway through a Spell Sovereign build before I saw this and realized it was actually DragMag. >_>

    Chairman, you forgot to italicize the 't' in 'the dreaded ooze round' in the first post.

    I've already got the skeleton of a build, but the story part is proving difficult to write.

    What is “Vizzini” in this context?
    It refers to this scene in princess bride when Vizzini rapidly talks himself into and out of drinking each glass of wine.

    It refers to you thinking "x is the obvious thing to use in this contest" and then going around it and submitting something else, then going a step beyond that and saying "everyone will assume x is obvious and no one will cook it, so if I cook it I'll be the only one" and dithering between these two options

    I was the first person to use it and am overjoyed it's become such an institution on the board for the build competitions. I forget which round it first came up in but it goes at least as far back as early 2013 with urban soul

    Hopefully we'll have something more up your alley next time around.

    I felt we just needed to get this one out of the way, and it was a judge's vote...

    Really?

    I must have completely overlooked that, since I didn`t vote ;)
    I however do understand the need to get it out of the way.

    Pardon my not understanding, but must a villain be built at CR 20 for these challenges? It looks like you're saying that it has to be built at CR 20, but that there's an option to build it at a different increment of 5. Have I got that right?

    Correct. The build should include up to CR 20, and snapshots of lower CRs are encouraged.

    I recommend looking at some of the previous competition entries to see what a "typical" submission looks like.

    You could submit a partial-entry at a lower CR, but it's likely to get judging penalties.
