    1: College of Fellowship. Exactly what every bard needs. Followers that find them no matter what they are doing and where they are

    2: Bardic College of the Wassailer. Fits well into the theme and the time of posting. I like that it gives out of combat utility and gives a very different feel to the class.

    3: Oath of The Boor, really flavorful and gross in a good way. It looks like it would be a lot of fun to play as a character. I think there are still a few mechanical issues, which is all thatís preventing it from being higher.



    For the next contest:
    1: bigger is better
    2: pen is mightier
    Pronouns he/him/his

    I didn't get a chance to submit an entry this go-'round because of the holiday and moving to a different state, but good work by everyone. These are all a lot of fun.

    1. nickl_2000's Rogue: Tavern Wench - Solid rogue subclass that is simple and effective. It works just as well if you strip away the fluff. You could play this subclass as any number of classic fantasy tropes (shifty assassin, criminal, street urchin).

    2. saucerhead's Paladin: Oath of the Boor - Fun and funny Paladin subclass. I think a less serious Paladin archetype is a good addition to the established group. This and the old Trickery Paladin from one of the old UA's would be a perfect fit.

    3. AdAstra's Cleric: Spirits Domain - Solid Cleric subclass. Could use a few minor tweaks to bring it up to the level of the other two.

    Next Contest:

    1. Make a Choice
    2. Scaling Strangely

    My votes:

    1. College of Fellowship. I'm really impressed at how much you managed to do with the bard's miniscule subclass, and I also like minion classes in general.
    2. Way of the Iron Cask. It's gross but also represents a character archetype that is reasonably common yet unrepresented so it got 2nd by that quality.
    3. Tavern Wench. It's got a lot of fun stuff happening, as has become your style.

    1. The Pen is Mightier
    2. Make a Choice

    Please forgive the late post, GITP seems to be under attack by all of Anonynous at once, or something. 75% of the time, I'm getting a 503.

    1. Nicrosil's Sommelier
    Mega props for breaking the seal on Artificer subclasses. I've come around on this one, and like the combined social and combat power this offers.

    2. nickl_2000's Tavern Wench
    Not actually a Tavern Wench. This subclass is actually the Terminator. It focuses on pursuit, focusing down on a singular target cutting through crowdsm and is utterly unstoppable. You can't reason with it, you can't stop it, and it's never unarmed.

    3. sengmeng's Path of Valhallaaaaaaaaaaaaa
    CASTING SPELLS AND BEING INVISIBLE WHILE RAGING. Also, the option to Dimensional Anchor on attacks.

    My picks:

    1. The choice has been made, the price must be paid... (Make a Choice) I'm addicted to complexity and customization.
    2. Scaling Strangely. Because I can.
    Sometimes, I have strong opinions on seemingly inconsequential matters.

    I will tally the voting here in the next couple hours. I ended up unexpectedly busy yesterday and I apologize for the delay.

    Votes tallied, time to call it!

    In 3rd place, with 9 points, we have those seekers of glorious death, sengmeng's barbarians on the Path to Valhalla! Channel the northern gods when you rage, and drink your devotion when you do pretty much anything!

    In 2nd place, with 11 points, we have the rock stars of the fantasy realm, Damon_Tor's College of Fellowship! Stand for the common folk and let them stand for you. Organize your devotees into an attacking force!

    Aaaaand in 1st place, with a staggering 18 points, we have that most iconic of supporting characters now taking the spotlight, it's nickl_2000's Tavern Wench! You handle the booze around here, and you've been dealing with uppity adventurers too long. Make sure everyone knows to watch their behavior!


    As for themes, we had a clear breakaway in Make A Choice, and our runners-up were tied between Bigger is Better and The Pen is Mightier. Tiebreaker rules would put Bigger is Better ahead, but I'll just go ahead and include both in the next contest voting pool instead.
