    congrats to the medalists, I don't *think* there is a HM this round, although voting is open until the new round is posted, or if i'm mistaken, kindly point it out, life has been *interesting* lately...

    Well I am perfectly okay with my second place result for the Black Queen. Of course it would seem as though I went a bit overboard on my characterís power...

    What can I say? Iím used to higher optimization at my table, so I anticipated a player counter to Hecate and turned a weakness into a strength.

    I was glad to read that the judge enjoyed the fluff of my character. I really had a blast putting everything together.

    After all... You surprised me.

    Congrats to all entrants, especially the winners.

    I feel a bit weird giving HM after competitors have been anounced, but if I were to award one, it would probably go to Sibuna.

    Thank you.

    Bit of a setback: my city has just entered a new COVID lockdown, so no idea if/when the auction will go ahead; or if it will be online or IRL.

    On the subject of fluff, next time make sure to include a citation if you're doing that big of an homage. Taking inspiration is one thing, but an almost word for word copy of a large body of text needs to have credit given, even if only in the Sources section; anything else is plagiarism.

    Oh aye, fair enough. I will make a note of that for next time.

    For reference, the last bit of fluff (specifically the write up for the CR 20 section) was taken from A Practical Guide to Evil.

    I really need to read that story again. I fell off it when Book...5, I think, started.

    Might as well say something, since I kind of won. I initially made a joke about how I had both the highest- and lowest-scoring entry, but deleted it after realizing it was inaccurate.
    I'm pleasantly surprised by how much our single judge liked both of my entries; I never figured out how to make Nandag into a villain villain and Sibuna was rushed all around. (Plus, I'm just not very good at optimization.) I'm glad InvisibleBison enjoyed both of my submissions anyways.
