    Default D&D 5e Base Class Contest IX Voting Thread

    This is the voting thread for the ninth base class contest It's Time for Time

    The rules are simple. Vote for your top three picks, in order. You can't vote for yourself. A number 1 vote is worth 3 points, a number 2 vote is worth 2, and a number 3 vote is worth one.

    You can also suggest or vote on what you would like the next contest's theme to be. Currently in the suggestion box are Based In Science, Heroes from Myths, Partial Casters, Dragons, and Classes from Previous Editions but don't feel as though you need to limit your suggestions to those themes; a larger pool means more options to vote on next time.

    Entry Creator 1st 2nd 3rd
    Arcanaut BerzerkerUnit 0 1 0
    Clockwinder MoleMage 2 2 0
    Speedster sengmeng 0 1 1
    Mage Lanth Sor 0 0 2
    Servant of Fate Breccia 1 1 0
    Maven Leathalsandwich 0 0 0
    Conductor PairO'Dice Lost 2 0 2

    The voting period will be three weeks, ending at the end of the day on January 12 January 19. The following day I will tally these results and declare a winner. For the curious, the tiebreakers I will be using are:

    1st tiebreaker is whether both participants voted. If one did not, they lose the tie.
    2nd tiebreaker is total number of 1st place votes. The entry which got more 1st place votes will win the tie.
    There is no 3rd tiebreaker. If both entrants voted and both entries reached their total score with the same number of 1st place votes, the tie will stand.

    1st: Conductor. I'm a sucker for new mechanics, and these are excellent. Probably needs some playtesting to truly balance, but hey so does mine.
    2nd: Speedster. It's got a good complete feel to it, and the mechanics are solidly workable. I'd let it at my table with the caveat of adjusting during the test.
    3rd: Mage. I think a more evocative name would be nice, but again the new spell slot mechanic is great. It is missing a little bit of completeness in the subclasses, however.

    For theme, I'm feeling either Classes from Previous Editions or Partial Casters.

    1st: Servant of Fate. Like MoleMage, I love classes with their own mechanics, and all the abilities were dripping with flavor. (Also, the contest really wasn't complete without a Doctor Who reference. )
    2nd: Clockwinder. Another very flavorful class with good unique mechanics; it was a very close call between the two.
    3rd: Speedster. This is a fairly elegant take on the speedster archetype (and reminds me of the 3e Swiftblade in a good way) without overly complicating things.

    My vote for the next contest is either Classes from Previous Editions or Heroes from Myths.

    Only half of the roster has voted so far, so I'm going to extend this another week.

    Alright, I guess it's time to call this so we can get to the new contest. Votes are tallied, and results are as follows:

    Our third place winner at 5 points is Breccia with the Servant of Fate! Implement the new Anomalies system in order to produce magical effects of a variety of power levels!

    In second place at 8 points, PairO'Dice Losts's last-hour entry The Conductor. With one of the most unique class resources in this contest to date, Time Signature ensures that this class is always doing something, but also that their something changes from round to round.

    In first place at 10 points, MoleMage's Clockwinder. Using wind-up devices, you can manipulate personal or general time, but once you do, they need to be rewound. Good thing you also have a big clockwork weapon or the skills to move about quickly!

    It looks like there were three votes for Classes from Previous Editions, compared to two each for Partial Casters and Heroes from Myth, so that will be our theme for contest X. Expect to see the new thread in the next few minutes!

    Yeah, it's hard to argue with this one. Perhaps in retrospect I could have voted them a little higher.

    Congratulations to Mole Mage and Paradise!
