    Construct people, construct. There aren't enough interesting constructs - hell, the best I've seen is the Force Golem. Where's the love?

    I'm going to go with Construct. An epic construct should definitely be interesting. I reserve the right to change my vote to Aberration (my close second) if it looks like that's more likely to win.

    Someone link this poor poster to the first villain, please.

    Say Afro, what about removing already-selected types for a certain amount of rotation - like, say, 4 contests - so we don't get unnecessary repeats?

    I was going to say humanoid, but I think I'll have to jump on the construct bandwagon.

    Humanoid's been done anyway. (And by that I mean in general, not necessarily this contest. Thought I should clarify)

    I'll vote for Construct too, I was considering voting for Elemental just to tie things up. But in all seriousness I don't like elementals and Constructs are more interesting.

    I want a really weird one though, it has to be made out of something really weird. Like Uranium, or the Dreams of Children.

    Why haven't you included the "Don't vote up a monster" monsters in your cross referencing list?

    So because plant already won once before means it should never be voted for again?

    I just thought of something more specific I want to see.

    A Neutral Good Construct made from the Sand that gives Horrific Nightmares to Evil Aligned PC's.

    Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream (bung, bung, bung, bung)


    Once we get around to alignment I know what I'm voting for. At least it wouldn't be one of the corners. Everyone is always a corner alignment, lawful good, Chaotic Evil. No one is ever Neutral Good or Chaotic Neutral or the like.

    Curse you limos. Your mention of sand just made me want to see an hourglass construct, that thinks it works for a god. And I know Afroakuma probably doesn't like that idea. *slits throat*

    You know, Gareth, I don't think it's such a concern, at the moment.

    Because it's not a contest, obviously. Everyone knows that.
    In seriousness, it's because I cut/pasted from the last thread ro rush it out and we don't have those ones formatted yet.

    No, I think she should change her votes because the exact concept she just voted for has already been done.

    I'm not gonna bother voting since construct has already won. I get a feeling this won't be a gigantic sand monster somehow related to glass of any kind. But if I were Afro, I'd make an hourglass themed monster and post it just to focus all these inappropriate comments all over the forum into one specific thread. Wink, wink.

    As for voting options, removing at least winnig type from the next one could be logical.

    I don't think Construct has necessarily "already won". There's still half the voting term left. My vote goes toward an epic Magical Beast, parftially because Magical Beasts are overdue.

    And there's no reason to strike the most recent winning option - anyone who's been following this isn't likely to vote for it anyway, but I'm still confident that afro's got more than one interesting villain for each type.
