Homebrew Optimization Contest #1: Topic?
« Topic Start: December 15, 2011, 01:55:19 PM »
Note that there will be further contests (unless this bombs horribly), so we'll surely get to all of these.  Just vote for a good one to start with!  Which would you like to optimize first?

Brought to you by the AD HOC* committee members, full list T.B.D.

Note: For those classes posted on GitP, I'm giving the creator a week to approve or disapprove of their inclusion in the contest.  If they decline or don't respond, those options will be removed.

I'd like to submit my Kensei of the Five Rings as an eventual topic.

There will be a place to do this... but in general the rule is that you can't nominate your own work.

Take the top contenders for a vote off just across them.
Everything is edible. Just that there are things only edible once per lifetime.
It's a god-eat-god world.

Procrastination is the thief of time; Year after year it steals, till all are fled,
And to the mercies of a moment leaves; The vast concerns of an eternal scene.

Given that edits to the material mid-contest aren't allowed, let me know immediately if the spellsage gets picked.  I'm currently in tweaking mode, and there's a lot of material that spellsage builds could draw on.

Given the amount of related material, I don't think you'll want to quote all of it.  I could toss together a quick-and-dirty PDF in such a case.
“Hast thou not felt in forest gloom, as gloaming falls on dark-some dells, when comes a whisper, hum and hiss; savage growling sounds a-near, dazzling flashes around thee flicker, whirring waxes and fills thine ears: has thou not felt then grisly horrors that grip thee and hold thee?”

The votes are rolling in, not much campaigning I guess. We're doing this like civilized people. :)
