1. Mountain of Boats
2. Corovorane's Cave
2. Noil Ruins

Sorry, but I have been back and forth between Corovarane's and Noil for quite some time. In my eyes they both have unique qualities. When I first read the Cave it resembled the works of my youth too closely for me to be impressed, but in retrospect I see that Dozus did quite well.
So I changed my vote from Noil to Corvorane. Now I just don't know. Noil Ruins is extremely well written. I cannot decide.

I award both 0.5 points. If that is impossible, I refrain from giving the second vote. If so, it is just MoB that gets a vote from me.

1. The Mountain of Boats
2. Noil Ruins

Thats the only one I am voting for since the one I expected to be up there wasn't. I was just curious to know what determined which subs were placed up for voting? Out of 20+ subs only 5 were placed up. Now yes they do have higher votes but what about the subs with a higher number of HOH? Shouldn't that account for something as well?

I agree with Mourn.

I dont think 4.5 should be the prerequisite. Too many good dungeons left out. For Crawlers of the Dark to not be included is a travesty.

As is...
1- Mountain of Boats
2-Corvorane's Cave

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.

Come on, people.  Vote.  There's less than a week to go.  Just a reminder, you DO have to vote to be eligible to win.  Maggot, I'm looking at you.

Vote, you filthy wretches!  *whip crack*  This quest won't vote on itself!

Seriously, why have a quest if you're not gonna vote on it, people?  It takes like 2 seconds to vote, and not that much time reading these subs.

Well, it might take some time to read MoB, but...  :wink:

Perhaps it is fitting for two of the Citadel's stalwart trailblazers to be the first on their block with a Strolen tee. :up:
