    And once again, I must lament that the prereqs end up far more confining than they first appear to be.

    I'm not inspired to build anything, depending on the number of entries, I may judge. I am also judging e6, so depending on that my judging here may be likewise delayed, we'll see.

    I have the level progression pretty much nailed down. I have the character's fluff mostly laid out in my head, but it's not flowing nicely onto the page, and I'm a little dissatisfied with some details like my skills. I'm going to try to get it in before the deadline, but it might be a squeaker.

    Well, at this rate the deadline's likely to have to be extended. I have no builds in thus far.

    I'm working on it, but an extension will take the pressure off and will let me probably not be so stressed out if I can't finish the build before my real-world obligation tonight.

    I have a stub I was going to flesh out as an entry, but probably won't be able to start building until Tuesday or Wednesday. So yeah, I could use an extension.

    I've ended up redoing this build in semi-major ways at least three times, and I've got the mechanical parts and the writeup basically entirely locked in place (finally). I'm absolutely hitting a wall over the fluff, though. Making it sound like it was written by a human being and not a clueless AI (and not the funny kind of clueless AI, either) is like pulling teeth for some reason. I did not think that this entry would take as much effort as it's turning out to.

    I know the feeling. I thought the spell list looked pretty good at first glance until the time came to actually select my spells, thought about using the trade feature, and realized that I was already only moderately satisfied with my choices.

    The class is deceptively bland, like a replica of Sunday roast made entirely out of unseasoned potato.

    Finally got it in. Again, perhaps not my most glorious dish, but at least I didn't let the class beat me. It came close, though.

    I dunno, reading an entry by a clueless AI sounds pretty amusing. can't wait to see what you sent in.

    Condolences. I was very close to my grandparents (I was raised by them, mostly), so I know it can be hard.
