    I just have to write the fluff but, uh, it's the most difficult part of this build. But I am very happy with it, overall.

    Not gonna lie, I'm eager to see the builds already... But you could always ask for an extension, if you come close but don't quite make it.

    My build is in, it's a mess, and it's very dumb, but I managed to do it!

    The reveal approaches! Is anyone still working? How are you doing, Thurbane?

    I’m waiting for a clarification from chair on one thing, and might have to revise a build, but I nominally have 2 submitted.

    I got some bad medical news yesterday, and TBH, not in the mood to finish up my entry. I'll post a stub after the reveal.

    That's rough, Thurbane. I hope it stabilizes quickly, whatever it is.

    I have two ideas that I've got the skeletons for, but I need to finish the tables and the write-ups. Tomorrow's going to be a bit of an Iron Chef-heavy day, it seems. I'm quite pleased with them overall, though.

    Did I hear people in a rush to make tables?? Fortunately there's a shortcut to making them. (Check my signature or the OP for a link to a Google sheet.) Made some significant improvements just today.

    Thurbane, sorry to hear that. Hope everything will be as good as possible despite the news.

    I will not be contributing a build this round. Good luck everyone.

    First build is in. To everyone who reads it... I'm sorry and you're welcome in equal measure.

    Working on the second one. I'm approaching being done with the write-up but then I've gotta figure out fluff and make everything pretty.

    I'm very excited to see what everyone came up with

    I'm also happy I didn't wait a few days before submitting my entry. At the time of submitting I liked it very much, but in the last couple of days I started feeling like it was super obvious and boring. I think I'm probably just tripping myself out and being paranoid, so it being out of my hands at this point is probably for the best.

    Looking forward to the reveal!

    Birchy, please remove the details from your incomplete build from the above post until after the reveal. It is considered speculation and should not be posted at this point in the competition. Thanks

    You're probably eager to share, and the time is fast approaching anyway. Just a few more hours most like.

    Hello everyone ! This comp had my interest but I haven't had time to write a build. I am still very eager to see what y'all have cooked.

    The current iteration of Junkyard Wars has seen the reveal of the builds‚ but nobody has volunteered to judge. Does anybody here want to review these non-theurge theurges ?

    In return‚ I would appreciate to judge these ragtag gladiators‚ if you'd like.
    Trying to resurrect the Negative LA thread, any comment and discussion are very welcome!

    Wish there was a better judge than me signed up, I look forward to burning out and getting unnecessarily snarky.

    Why wait? Just go into it with a double barrel snark-gun and blaze away. As with PCs everywhere and fire, so should judges and snark.

    If you don't get the desired results with fire, the problem doesn't lie with the fire, merely the insufficient application thereof.
